****Hey guys! I actually just emailed this question to the Bobmcast to see what the guys might say, but I figured I'd ask the community too because, hey there are a lot more of us. Thanks in advance!****
Hey there! I have a question to ask, but it requires just a bit of explanation.
My girlfriend and I currently live about 100 miles apart. We've been doing the usual text/skype routine, but are looking for other ways to virtually spend time together. My first thought: VIDEOGAMES!
No, not Second Life.
We play a few mobile games, but we're looking for something we can voice or text chat while playing. My girlfriend doesn't really play games, but has nothing against them and is interested in seeing what we can find.
Sounds great, right? But there's one more thing! My girlfriend doesn't have a left arm below her elbow (no, there's no crazy bear/shark/katana story behind this, she was simply born without it). This, as you can imagine, complicates matters a bit.
Console games are more or less ruled out, though we are planning to play Brothers together at some point, me on the left stick, her on the right. PC games are primarily what we are looking at, specifically mouse-centric or simpler strategy games (Civ would probably be too much for her to take in right now). She's actually pretty fast on a keyboard, but things like shift clicks and alt-drags pose some difficulties because of that whole no-left-hand thing.
My question then, is what might you all suggest as possible games for us to play? I'm a little clueless since I myself have just recently taken my first steps into PC gaming, after 23 years of nothing but consoles. Any game suggestions you can think of that we could play together online, or as some Macgyvered co-op like Brothers, would be super rad and greatly appreciated.
