    The "Relaxing" game of your choice.

    I like a good simple game that I don't half to think or worry about to much every once in a while especially if I'm really tired and had a rough day. What do you like to play to just relax? No worrying about 1cc's, or this or that just to wind down and chill or get ready for bed etc.

    For me its Alien Crush on PCE god I love this game, its so relaxing and no worries at all. Its like watching an episode of one of Bob Ross paintings lol.

    Discuss & list them.

    Pomping World for the PCE is my ultimate relaxing game. Busting all those bubbles is satisfying and some of the tracks are soothing as well.

    Hardly any online players these days, but UNO for the Xbox 360 fits the bill for me.

    I call those white noise games

    for sure its

    Resident Evil 1 2 3 and REmake and maybe Zero and CVX up to a point
    Devil May Cry 3 and maybe 4 up to a point
    Dig Dug and PacMan,
    DKC 1 and 2,
    SMB3 and SMW
    Puyo Puyo Fever and Puzzle Fighter

    there's probably a whole lot more but these are the main ones i know like to put on right quick. Mainly games that I know very well but are still fun to put on for a couple of hours.

    Definitely Castlevania 1 or 3 for NES/Famicom. I've played them enough times that they aren't too challenging, but whipping baddies is oh so satisfying.

    I didn't understand it, but I found SimEarth (SNES) relaxing. Maybe it's the soothing music.

    Strangely enough, I can also relax with Age of Empires, with or without the Rise of Rome expansion. Maybe I'm just so familiar with the mechanics, or the music is soothing to me, or I've played it for so long. It's pretty much my all-time favorite Microsoft-published game.

    I like golf games, nice visuals, soothing visuals, although I might rage a bit much after a poor shot. I also like playing Football Manager a lot, I can play at my own pace and take my time thinking things through. I also like playing Picross and other puzzle games.

    Same here, RTS games chill me out. Sim City 1 and 2000 work well.
    Warlords Battlecry 3 was my go to chill out game for a while.

    Yoshi's Woolly World on easy mode is pretty relaxing too.

    In that kind of situation what I'm looking for is a "comfort game" which usually means that I want one of my beloved old favorites from back in the day. I feel like the first Sonic the Hedgehog is probably my biggest go-to. Others would be Streets of Rage 2, Castlevania, Super Mario Bros, maybe even Turrican. I'm sure there are a few others as well.

    Uncharted waters and aerobiz are pretty good for numbing the mind.

    A JRPG I haven't played in awhile, any will do. The music and slow pace always helps me fall asleep, lol

    While i do know it very well up to a point, that shit gets way to intense later on for it to ever be a white noise game for me

    Been enjoying Super Punchout! on SNES whenever I have some time to kill. It's really fun when you get over the fact it isn't Mike Tyson's Punchout: Part 2. If you play it for what it is, it's really fun challenging yourself to get faster knockdowns on opponents.

    If you can get someone to PLAY Uno it's relaxing. Considering during it's peak it was an overglorified dating/sex room. Used to piss me off when people would jump in a room and refuse to play.
