    I have to listen to some continuing Ed for work at about 80 percent focus. Any suggestions for games to play that only need another 20 percent focus? iOS stuff works too.

    I usually use Heroes 3 (Horn of the Abyss) for these kind of stuff. It works :)

    DCSS. I'd second Heroes 3. They're also good for extra long meetings.

    Try a roguelike. Turn-based, lightweight, ADOM and DoomRL are my poisons of choice, but there's plenty others.

    There's a bunch of idle clickers on steam, pick a good looking one I guess.

    You probably have ADHD so you should play the Ritalin game.

    Oh work lectures. Yeah DoomRL.

    WoW Classic is a good one, can quite easily play through without reading anything and 1-60 will take 200+ hours the first time.

    Games like Morrowind or any Bethesda title are also solid if you just play them as dungeon crawlers for this purpose.

    Some of the more recent mario platformers are pretty good for this and can be easily emulated. 3D world, 3d land, the NSMB series. Mostly piss easy, and simplistic in a pure way.

    Some PES or FIFA since you don't need too much focus or thinking. Like Unreal said shmups and also beat em ups.

    Sieges in Total War Warhammer 2; most of the campaign map as well can also be played while paying attention to lecture.

    Anything where the focus is the gameplay, and listening to characters in the game isn't some big part (or any part) of it makes for a good podcast game.

    4X games like Alpha Centauri
    X-COM
    Defense Grid
    RTS games in scrimmage mode
    A Heroes of Might & Magic game
    Beat 'em ups (Dragon's Crown and Capcom's D&D are good for this since they're longer than most others, also Guardian Heroes)
    Fighting games
    Puzzle games
    If you like Darkest Dungeon

    Really, just anything you can think of that you like that doesn't stop much for cutscene and people talking since you'll be listening to something else. Like, 13 Sentinels would be a bad game to play when trying to listen to something else, because you'll have to pause whatever all the time. Adventure games, RPG's that aren't combat focused, they'd be bad to go with.

    you are adding location (this cards at the bottom), which spawn a new enemies on the road.

    90% you re equiping new items, and trying to min-max stats.

    I love real time gaming but turn based wins for when you can get interrupted.

    My favorite for that sort of thing is Slay the Spire. Great for dropping in and out, even if you have to close it suddenly in the middle of a fight. Lots of quick 1-2 minute battles, lots of tools for remembering wtf is going on. Also it's just a fucking amazing game.

    Any turn-based games. Or any games that are partly hands-off, like Football Manager.
