Games for useless gimp

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I recently had quite a tumble while skiing, I now have a shattered knee cap, fractured pelvis and broken right wrist. I've got a big bloody cast over my wrist, it extends to my first joint on all my fingers and thumb. This means I can't hold a mouse with my right hand anymore, and even trying to use WASD with my right hand is pretty difficult.

So, my question is, what games can I play with only my left hand? Shooters are gonna be frustrating, with the lack of accuracy of mousing with my off-hand, and having to switch from mouse to KB whenever I want to move. I can't play SC2, as I am gold league and the lack of APM and mouse control just won't cut it.

Any ideas?

No, I've got plaster between my index and thumb, and on my whole palm.

Actually, I gave it a go, doesn't seem to work half bad.. Maybe AC:B will be a good distraction when it cones out.

Well When I want to "vegitate" I play King's Bounty games. You can play them with point and click, but it's all turn based strategy so there is no crucial timing needed.

Sounds like some Indie games for you.

Try Audiosurf on steam, its quite fun. I believe you only need the mouse.

EDIT: IF you have a mouse with a lot of buttons you can bind, you can try playing something like Diablo II or Titan quest. Point click, use keyboard (Bind these keys) to open up some menus and use potions.

Racing games? Something like dirt 2 could be played with a single hand. Stock controls would work with one hand, but it'd be better if you rebind the movement from the arrow keys to the WASD, since you left hand is the healthy one.

It's a 5 button mouse. The extra buttons are a bit difficult to use, as it's meant for right hand use, but I'll look into it.

For me, it's race sims or nothing. I can't really use my left leg for the clutch, and the h-shift is probably not a good thing to use in anger for my right hand. Plus, getting into my race seat in my condition would be quite the trick.
