How to let off steam

Everyone deals with stress in a different way.
Exercise, creative work like art, meditation, and ranting. Destructive forms also occur like aggression towards others.

For me, playing games is usually my outlet.

  • FPS/Action - Lets out any anger I have pent up
  • Puzzle/Adventure/RPG - For something constructive
  • Casual - For when I'm bored or waiting on public transport etc.

So generally I prefer games with short term fixes. Long term games, like strategy, don't reward me enough. I like to be in with the action. 

Competitive or multiplayer games aren't really my thing - often MMOs are very competitive and need a lot of dedication to actually be decent (e.g. learning the mechanics, collecting resources etc.)
