We were able to start playing video games online again after I got settled in Germany. I’m pretty sure this is where we started with Left for Dead (1&2) and Dead Island. They were fun and a good distraction and way to stay connected. We played through each Left for Dead with increasing difficulty levels, and tolerated the glitchiness of Dead Island and attacked all the sequels and extras with vigor. Our enjoyment of the genre set us up for future games and helped to keep us in constant contact so we could make future plans.
