idk maybe you just have ADHD and can't have some chill enjoyment by yourself
For me it really depends on the game and on my mood, some games i have played for hundred of hours such as skyrim, but other solo player games i cant get past the first hour, idk why. Its probably mostly about you giving the game a fair chance and getting past the prologue and getting carried away by it.
You'd probably like Half Life 2. Well liked game and its not too long.
I recommend Doom (2016) and Doom Eternal. Excellent games.
GTA V singleplayer/storymode i found fucking awesome
Best game ever
And I'm not kidding
skyrim doesnt have a 1 week tutorial wtf, i have 600 hours in that game and one of my friends has over 4k. skyrim is pretty trashy in 2020, witcher 3 is seriously good.
got the same feeling... F1 as well ... My Team is the coolest mode ever in the game but i get tired after 1 race weekend and go to play online races, LoL with friends or some CS..
solo strategy games like total war and hoi4 are nice, cant rly enjoy witcher etc..
Its called single player games the only "solo" game we can play is a game with our hands and a dick
only solo game I finished is Max Payne
I dont play for these games because most of them are relatively short but very expensive. I like games which i can play unlimited amounts of times, and not have to throw away after 10 hours of gameplay. Which is why i like shooters mostly
I'm a huge fan from gta,watch dogs,ac,skyrim cod mw trilogy and bo1 and 2
i'm playing rn kingdom come deliverance,red dead 2,ac origins,i'm focused in finishing the story of red dead,but i never played playstation exclusives
i recommend you to play mw or black ops story,gta if you never played(san andreas or v)
There is sure to be some solo games you'll enjoy, so many to choose from.
You mention Elder Scrolls which is really a game series, but what is true any in the series I know is that one starts with limited resources and thus limited options. Lots of games are like that, especially those that are sort role playing ones even if they are single player games.
In general though I must say the best games is the ones where one must invest time to get into the games, to learn the world one is gaming in and to discover who to succeed in it.
Here is a list of different games which I enjoy, the fist couple of them is easy to get started with.
Plants vs. Zombies
Far cry series
Deus Ex series
GTA 3 and up
Try visual novels, great solo games
Try Fable 1 or Mass Effect
Try MAFIA 2 i remember how i played it.
Thief (if you like old games)
I reccomend the HALO franchise, you can get it on steam now
Walking dead those type of games
Black Mesa is a pretty nice game, it's one of my favorite games
My guess is that you're looking for the wrong kind of singleplayers.
Seems to me you're likely to enjoy games based on cicles, and this can be quite frustrating when playing those hyper immersive ones like Skyrim and Witcher.
I'd recommend something 'smaller'
- Persona 5 (turn based RPG, amazing story)
- Farcry (Single AND multiplayer fps)
- Resident Evil
- LA Noir
- Detroit: Become Human
- COD, Battlefield, MOH
