5 Games to get you through a bad breakup

by Jenni Lada on Feb 15, 2010 at 02:17 PM

Valentine’s Day may not have been the best day for everyone. I mean, while I’m sure many people experienced loving and tender moments with the person most dear to them, there were probably quite a few people struggling through breakups and recovering from a faded love.

Since you probably have the day off today for Presidents Day, it’s a great day to practice some video game therapy. Get out your favorite system, pick up a game and use it to help you work through your issues. Gamertell has a few suggestions, in case you’re wondering what could be good to play.

    Flower (PS3): It’s relaxing and serene, and its beautiful visuals and often calming music will help you center yourself and calm your nerves. It’s a wonderful stress reliever. New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Wii): This works in two ways. If you feel like taking your anger out on the world, you can take it out on your friends playing with you. Or, the generous co-op experience could remind you of all the people you have that love, care about and support you, even if that good-for-nothing ex didn’t. Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands (DS): Think of this game as a self esteem booster. Your ex didn’t want you, but there’s an island full of bachelors or bachelorettes who do, and who will adore you simply for taking the time to talk to them each day. Dissidia: Final Fantasy (PSP): This can work in two ways. You can play against friends to unleash your aggression and anger, or you can mindlessly level grind. Either way, it’ll help release stress and any pent up anger you may be harboring. Fable II (Xbox 360): Make yourself into a hero. Or villain. It’s your choice, really. You may not have had any control over whether the relationship continued, but you can control every aspect of your life here. Plus, it’s a self esteem booster since you’re building yourself and your reputation up, and perhaps even finding a few suitors.

Do you have any other suggestions for games that are great for helping you work through the heartbreak? Let us know in the comments!
