Hi, I might soon be housebound for a few weeks (you can guess why), and I am feeling pretty anxious and am hoping to find a game to play on my PS4 or Switch to help me de-stress (So not the ReMind Secret Episode for the 500th time).

So, I was wondering what games people on here would play to just relax and feel better when stressed?

I'm sorry to hear about your circumstances. Hopefully you don't get ill or are forced to stay at home.

As far as recommendations, I suggest The Last Guardian and Okami.

The Last Guardian focuses on the bond between a young boy and a cat/griffin creature. The controls and camera can be a little frustrating but I found myself really satisfied once I got through it. It's on the PS4.

Okami is a very beautiful game focused on Japanese mythology. You play as the goddess Amaterasu in the form of a white wolf. It's on the PS4 and Switch.

I don't want to give too many details away but maybe check them out.

Remember not to overthink it, please keep yourself focused and hopeful. Everything will fall into place.

I find Minecraft to be the most relaxing game to play. Stardew Valley is also nice.

I love playing Stardew Valley whenever I have a lot to do and need relaxation. Seeing how your farm grows and managing gives you a great feeling of accomplishment, while the game never feels pushy in any direction. Also, Dragon Quest 11 because it has beautiful landscapes, a lot of side content to get lost in and the turn-based combat rarely puts you under stress.

I play the Spyro games to relax. I've played them so many times that it's one of the most relaxing fun times I have when playing, besides a KH game lol. Stay safe and be healthy Dast!

Uh, does ARK survival evolved count? that's what I do to relax sometimes. Other than that, I'd second Spyro reignited trilogy.

An mmorpg game I just love the that kind of magical fantasy game with tank dps healer party Dragons monsters and that kind of stuff. And makes me forget about the issues in real life, not that much but it helps.

Firstly, sorry you’re feeling pretty anxious. seriously, fuck this pandemic

As for what games to play, I usually pop off with some Smash Ultimate.

I like grinding games. Just make myself feel powerful and kick everyone's ass with no worries (this includes certain Mobile games (aside from KHUX): Naruto Ultimate Ninja Blazing, Bleach Brave Souls, and Saint Seiya Awakening); Octopath Traveller is a really good one for the Switch. But if you want mainstream, everyone talks about Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing (which is coming out on Friday (but I will purchasing DOOM Eternal that day))

Thanks again for all the recommendations. I gravitate towards the grinding RPG games but I am looking forward to giving others a try too when my self-isolation starts tomorrow. I hope everyone else on here stays safe too.
