@rollingzeppelin Agreed. Although a bit old, this advice from Rock, Paper, Shotgun still holds true:
...the [£160 i5] 2500K sports four cores based on precisely the same architecture as the £850 Core i7 3960X and running at a similar 3.3GHz base clockspeed. And four cores is all you need for gaming, now and for the foreseeable future. Critically, the Core i5 series doesn’t have HyperThreading. For gaming, that’s actually a good thing since today’s software can’t tell the difference between a real core and a virtual core conjured up by HyperThreading. The danger here is that instead of running two intensive threads on separate cores, you end up running both on a single core. And that will kybosh your frame rates.
I'm a very lazy guy -- so much so that I want to put as little effort as possible into the games I play.
There have been games, like Final Fantasy XII, that let you set up your characters' AI so that you can run through the world and grind without having to touch a single button. Dragon Age: Origins worked much the same way, except you had to always be in control of one character. Fortunately there was a mod to remedy that. There was also a sweet mod that made the party members automatically run around and loot stuff after a battle.
So what I'm looking for are other games where you can get through a combat scenario with little to no input. For example, Final Fantasy XIII would have qualified if you didn't have to press X to activate auto combat every single turn. Do you have any suggestions?
