Best. Injury. Ever. That’s right, a woman has just been transformed into a sex-obsessed deviant after her libido was jump-started into orbit by a freak nerve injury while playing Wii Fit. The young woman, called Amanda, has apperently developed 'persistent sexual arousal syndrome' due to the accident.
When asked how she deals with the constant need for a good seeing to she commented: "With no cure I just have to try to control my passion by breathing deeply. Hopefully one day I'll find a superstud who can satisfy me." Pah. Forget the hunk. All you need is some really, really dull games to keep those desires on the backburner.
So if you're unfortunate to suffer a similar affliction, and said gaming injury hasn't put you off the medium for life, here's a list of titles that'll cool your jets. They might not be much fun to play; but they’re at least the gaming equivalent of a cold shower.

Gaze in awe at the architectural wonders of Berlin's mightiest bus stations. Who needs scantily clad bikini babes when you can ferry old folk to and from the retirement castle on the number 59?
Are you the kind of person who's played Heavy Rain's shower scenes so many times that the image of Madison's bare backside has been permanently burned onto your plasma screen? Then boy could you do with picking up this cooking sim. Not only will it keep you on the straight and narrow, it'll also help you become a cooking king.

The exciting world of horse racing is the perfect antidote for anyone looking to nuke naughty desires.

Everyone knows there's nothing like a bit of financial ruin to curb carnality.
Planet Rescue Wildlife Vet
Now this is what we're talking about. Healing baby elephants. Exploring the African savannah. Possibly getting your jugular ripped out as you try to pull a thorn out of a lion cub's paw. The game's rewards might not come in the form of gratuitous T&A slow-mo shots. But who'd want that when you can help fix a giraffe's neck problems? Exactly.
Or, y'know, you could just watch this...
