I cracked under the pressure of PowerWash Simulator — seriously, I have nerve damage

6 min read

PowerWash Simulator broke me in a way I couldn’t have anticipated. This supposedly “tranquil” game features a control scheme so painfully repetitive and demanding that it brought back an old injury of mine. My first couple of sessions were fine, but by my fifth and sixth hour, I couldn’t handle it anymore. Even after attempts to bypass these issues through alternate controllers and increased mouse sensitivity, I found no way to avoid the pain.

Video games are an escape for many of us; a delightful medium that takes us to new worlds and lets us experience sensations no other artform can (like powerwashing). So you can imagine my frustration when a PC game that’s meant to be chill instead created a major real life inconvenience for me.
