    I have one that I'm so embarrassed to say, but it's my dearest Metropolismania. Please don't laugh... :shame: I'm pretty sure you all have one! What's your game you're afraid to play among others?

    I get down on Just Dance on the Wii. I will play against and beat 6-8 year olds with no shame. I even talk smack while I'm doing it :oops:

    Probably any Sonic the Hedgehog game. I mean, everytime I play it on Steam, my friends laugh at me, asking me whether I'm not a bit too old for Sonic.
    NOBODY IS EVER TOO OLD FOR SONIC. :mad:

    Ahaha... :oops: Otome and dating games in general.
    I don't tell anyone that I play them (aside from on forums where I feel like people won't point and laugh at me) because I'm afraid of how people will react. I'm not the easiest person to get along with, so I'm lonely a lot of the time, and, I dunno, dating games help me keep my mind off that loneliness. Even if the void is only being filled by a video game character it makes me really happy for some reason.
    Harvest Moon is becoming somewhat of a guilty pleasure game series for me as well. I don't know why; it isn't an embarrassing game really, but I always feel ashamed for some reason to list a farming sim as one of my favorites.

    I like some Hentai games, like Artificial Girl 3 or Custom Maid 3D. I think people would look down on me for playing such perverted games. I honestly couldn't believe they have "game play" on YouTube. One of my favorites to watch on YouTube was "WTF Japan". The host is Japanese, and plays through Hentai games, while making fun of it.

    Mine is definitely Sims 4. I've been playing Sims ever since the first one. I still remember when it first came out and everybody in my school was playing it. We even gathered at my friend's house and played it together by switching who's controlling the Sims.

    I have the Sims 4 and Get to work expansion and I love it, I am guilty, lock me up. I don't play it all the time or anything like that. Maybe once per month but when I do it's for few hours straight. It can be so much fun trying to create people or families and then houses...

    The various Assassin's Creed games. Ok I know they are actually pretty popular and beloved, but they also receive a lot of hate from various gamers, and I recognize they are actually bad and all the same - don't deny it! But... I like them, they are just simply plain fun. Maybe a bit repetitive, but I always buy the new one when it comes out.

    They say that basketball is not appropriate for me but I enjoy NBA. Okay, I have to admit of my guilty pleasure and it's Counter Strike. But I only play it in the office during lull or breaks because I cannot install it at home, someone will not like it lol. Except my cohorts in the office, no one knows that I am playing Counter Strike and I think I'm pretty good at it.

    Sly Cooper: Honor Among Thieves! 21 Years old and I still cry at the end! :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy: It was the game that helped me through being bullied in middle school, and it still gives me this sense of calm and wonder whenever I play it! But if we are talking embarrassing guilty pleasures, it's got to be Long Live the Queen. There's just something about being a magical girl that makes me feel all good inside :sweatsmile:

    Haha! I'm glad I'm not the only one who plays games that find a bit embarrassing to tell. For me, those will be the Dash games: Dinner Dash, Cooking Dash, and Wedding Dash.

    I guess my guilty pleasure could be considered AdVenture Capitalist. A simple click tycoon game, I've gotta make sure my lemonade stands are operating at max efficiency! It's mindless and fun, and cool to spend about 10 or 15 minutes a day playing.

    Leisure Suit Larry magna cum laude
    is my guilty pleasure.
    It's the 8th installment of the original Leisure Suit Larry games but from the perspective of Larry's nephew.
    While I don't think the game is quite as good as some of the other installments there are certain elements that I like of the game and the overall story I enjoyed.

    Easy, Grand Theft Auto 5 offline singleplayer:tearsofjoy:. My top guilty pleasure/stress reliever. Something about jacking cars, committing crimes, creating police chases, and other time wasting activities just really hits the spot!

    It's my little bit of guilty pleasure I thoroughly enjoy.

    I don't really play any games that I feel guilty about. Don't understand you should feel guilty about some games.

    Yeah, I don't really consider anything a 'guilty pleasure', just games I enjoy that I might catch flak for, which mostly just means I don't bring 'em up.

    Amongst my group, that's The Sims in general, like so many others here.

    My "guilty pleasure" games are the Neptunia series and pretty much any game with fanservice, especially if it has really cute female characters. I get a lot of flak for playing games that contain "male gaze" but I really find seeing cute girls plus fanservice in games to be relaxing and amusing. I also enjoy hentai games quite a bit as well.

    Skyrim for me. Always have, always will be. I really want to replicate that feeling when I first played this game. The open world before you, the quests, twists, and turns that will take you far and wide in this realm. Killing your first dragon, finishing your first dungeon, entering your first Dwemer dungeon, getting attacked by your first Falmer. You can never experience all that again for the first time, and it really saddens me that I can't. So I play new styles each time, hoping that one of these playthroughs I can find something new that would take me back to when I first started playing.

    I'd say Sims 4. But what can a girl do...I just hate the fact that it's harder to kill my sims, in Sims 3 it's was much easier...now if I want a pretty looking graveyard I have to sweat for it.
