Even though I know multitasking is probably an overall bad thing, one of my favorite activities is to play a game while I have a video playing in the background that I only have to partially pay attention to. I make my way through most of Giant Bomb's free videos and some of their premium videos while doing this.
If the game takes too much attention I completely ignore the video though. I figured Hearthstone might be a good watch while playing game, but it ends up taking all my attention when I play. I thought maybe I could play some turn based strategy games like Xcom while watching shows, but that didn't work out either.
Recently, some of the games I've played while watching are Regency Solitaire and Hexcells from the recent Humble Bundle. I've also recently discovered nonograms.org which is a really cool site with thousands of picross type puzzles.
I also started Titan Quest Anniversary and Grim Dawn and they seemed to work ok with videos, but while both games seemed decent, I haven't decided if I'm going to stick with either.
I'm looking forward to getting The Crew for free next week. I wonder if that game will go well with videos.
What games do you find works best with watching videos at the same time?
