Sometimes, you just want to chill out after work. Here are five relaxing games to help you do just that!
I used to play harvest moon a lot. Super chill.
For me, to this day: Silent Hill 1 (first person mode) on the PS1, Champions of Norrath (PS2), Paper Mario (N64), Ocarina of Time (N64)... Any of the above^^^, and its a regular practice I keep booting 'em up on and off... esp. Silent Hill 1, the newly found camera angle is heaven sent!
Sonic 3&K is usually my go to game for a chill experience
I love to top off a stressful workday by playing relaxing gems like Bloodborne and DS3. Kidding, kinda.
I actually keep those for finishing projects and generally fearing finals less. Makes it all trivial and easy due to repetition.
I get it, but I love the Souls-styles games. It took me a while to get used to the gameplay, but now I love it.
Challenging games can cause short-lived stress but it can also take the mind off the everyday stress. A game that's too chill, I start to think about stuff I gotta do, because it doesn't take focus off of it and worrying about it does nothing.
You probably heard this a lot. Buy you should try Demons souls.. Either use RPCS3 , or good old ps3. I still find that it had one of the most touching stories. Also that deeper shade of grey every time you die was just too brilliant of a touch.
Lol, already played Demon's Souls, and it's one of my favorite games.
Btw, what do you think of Ni-Oh? I got it but hadn't gotten to playing it yet. How does it stand?
Ni-Oh is great. Different than Souls in a lot of ways though.
The demo reminded me of Ninja gaiden/Onimusha. I think I'll play it along side Monster Hunter. Might give a change of pace
burnout paradise, or for chill BOTW, SOT, games like journey, ABZu or the Witness.
I used to play burnout paradise a lot but I stopped. I kept getting ass and dick pics when I'd crash into other cars from other players. Very sick people play that game.
I usually play it offline. you can just beat others players scores. Sorry that happened to you. first time I heard of it. I played it a lot on Ps3 , now i just play on PC when ever I miss paradise city really.
I'm in construction and at the end of my days I need the opposite. Games like street fighter or mafia are good agressive games to vent on after a long day at work.
I enjoy FPS multiplayer games with friends after a long day.
I like a good rpg late into the night when i can pull it off. Its rare since i usually have to get up early.
Games like The Witcher 3 or Civilization Beyond Earth calm me down
AC: Origins Discovery Tour. Full map, super informative. Dare I say, educational?
Well, game like Journey, Horizon Zero Dawn abzu will make my day feel better.
I love threads like this, because the comments just show how many gamers love so many different kinds of games.
I made a random decision once to grab golf club on ps4 when it was on offer, me and my mate then often played that as our relaxing game, then i grabbed a copy on pc too 🙂
Diablo or Minecraft with my other half splitsceen.
Telltale games, Minecraft, those exploratory type games like Journey(sure it's not the first). I play my Vita in bed, really anything that's not fast-paced and punishing. FFX is what I'm finally trying to finish. Calming music in games also helps.
I love how they put Link in the thumbnail but doesn’t include even a single Zelda game in their list lol.
I like a bit of warframe to relax, fun mowing down hordes of enemies and getting your reward centre satisfied as you go along.
Super Mario All Stars
Yonder was a super chill game for me. Basically Zelda without dungeons or combat.
