Nintendo Ninjas will walk you through some of the best Nintendo Switch games for those who think that they cannot play due to anxiety. These are 5 Switch games for the anxiety-ridden gamer.
It's kinda embarrassing to talk about, but I have it as well. For me though, Jrpgs let me get lost in their world, almost therapeutic to play them.
I think Stardew Valley and Rune Factory but fit the bill pretty well. I also found Skyrim to be a very relaxing and non anxiety game. I am playing Persona 4 Golden atm and its been helpful to my anxiety. I think turn based games are not so bad with anxiety. I will say that if you encounter random battles and you start to get anxiety waiting for the next one at any random moment then skip it lol. I have been there. Mario games and platformers tend not to give me anxiety but its more because I played them so much growing up that I don't think much playing them I go into the zone. I say this because the same games that I play above with no anxiety might give another person insane anxiety. You gotta know what triggers you. Note its a real medical issue. I never had this growing up much but I had a bad accident at thirteen, things changed and my body broke and since then everything has been a living nightmare.
