    Ever play video games when you get sick?

    I know I do.

    So last weekend I was staying over at a friend's house and one of them had little cold, but I caught their cold; so now I'm sick and feel like utter shit. I always play video games when I'm under the weather, but if I have a headache I just rest little about an hour, then take some advil. Now I'm playing Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story on my bed, since I can't go in the living room and play Gitaroo Man. Rhythm games and colds don't mix for me.

    Do you play video games when you're sick? Play any favorites when you're sick? Does it make you feel slightly better?

    I've played video games when I faked sickness.

    It's how I came to love Mario RPG. God bless 1996, you wonderful year of my life.

    You kidding? I was playing olive-screened classic Game Boy when I came down with the chicken pox in 2nd grade. Years later, when I got the flu, I burned through like half of Final Fantasy 6 when I wasn't up all night watching music videos.

    Ah, for the days when throwing up was an excuse to do nothing.

    I'll usually play anything that doesn't require a fast reaction time.

    90% of my original Fable playthrough happened on sick days. Or were those fake sick days... >.> Doesn't matter. I don't do it so much anymore, but on days where I'm feeling a bit better, but I'm still sick, I'll throw in a Final Fantasy and waste some time.

    No. If I'm really sick I'll sleep all the time.

    If I'm just "eh" sick, then yeah, I prob will.

    Usually. Today I've been vomiting a lot because of what I think is the stomach flu, and I was playing a lot of Mother 3 and a bit of Brutal Legend, once I was able to do anything other than lay on my bed, listening to music.

    I play video games a lot anyway, this is just an excuse to stay inside all day and play more video games. Which is actually not very pleasant.

    I think anyone who's ever spent a lot of time playing video games has played a game(s) at least once in their life while sick. I had some pretty fond gaming memories when sick. Whenever I got sick, (or faked being sick) and was not totally fudged up on medicine, I would hit the ol' SNES or Genesis. When the PSX hit, man those were the times. Wasting away my sick days on classic PSX RPGs was so spiffy.

    I don't recall doing it, whenever I got sick as a kid I got REALLY sick and didn't feel like playing anything, outside of that time I got chicken pox I never played sick because I didn't have the strength for it.

    I got sick a few months ago, I hadn't been sick in like 4 years, I start college and bam, sick within days and I felt like absolute ass, I only managed to play after about 2 days after I got sick cause I didn't feel well enough otherwise.

    I just got the mumps. Been playing a few puzzle and RTS games. Not a lot though. Bloody painful.

    all the time. especially RPGs or other slow-paced games, if I'm feeling really sick.

    All the damn time.

    Usually I don't play more complex games, but a simple FPS, platformer, or more mindless RPG can really perk me up. Without games, being sick would be boring as fuck.

    I usually get head aches when I'm ill so I guess not

    I don't really ever get sick, but when I do, I usually lay in my bed with my DS or PSP and just relax and play whatever I'm playing on those. I don't really play anything that requires a lot of thinking or fast reaction.
