Clicky games

I don't do clicky games.

In general, I'm not a gamer. I have done a few sessions of a LARP before I wandered off, bored. I have never tabletop gamed. I despise first-person shooter games, and 007 makes me nauseous. The only sorts of games that I will play are puzzle-type games, like Bejeweled, Tetris, and that one one on-crack game that involves bouncing heads around that stick to each other and explode. I love those sorts of games, and will rack up insane scores on them.

Unfortunately, I am also subject to the Curse of the Geek. While I can stay on LJ for hours, commenting and posting and reading, I can't do anything that requires mouse work, especially heavy mouse work, for more than an hour, slightly more if I get smart and put on the wrist brace beforehand. I stretch my hands out often, but it's not enough to play games, and the payoff for game-playing is not worth being permanently crippled.

So, as a rule, I don't game, and I get petulant if I'm recommended games that are click-heavy, and annoyed if I'm recommended first-person-shooter games.
