None. I tend to find that games wake me up. On the relaxation front I prefer music or spoken books. The problem is I may get too relaxed and fall asleep. :)

I'd say Journey could be the best game to calm my nerves.
To be honest, the only game that can calm me down when I‘m furious is a mobile game… That is Jouney‘s little brother Sky: The Children of Light. I just love the game. If it was available on PC, I would instantly install it.

As for most PC games: they are better in setting my curiosity than my mood.
Yet I have to admit… It is somehow calming to watch little Tristis (my shadow from the game The Longing) browse through his books… 🧘‍♀️

Well, make it so!

@Colif may have tips, he's a total Journey fanboy :)

Well I fell asleep playing subnautica and drowned, losing a 60 hour permadeath run. I woke up when my GF went to the bathroom at 2 am and couldn't help but notice the Game Over screen. Rough night.

So, Subnautica is very relaxing. I recommend it. Just make sure you head to base when all this relaxation makes you want to nod off.

@Crapulence1337 Interesting. Anyone know if there's a 'Forum Poster' game? I'm feeling a bit stressed here at the moment.
this forum used to be a good game of whack a spammer but its not as fun anymore.

I used to be on a forum that had an rpg built into it, you could buy equipment and use it to fight other members of the forum. It was fun but the person who wrote it had left forum by time I got there and game just sort of ended.

Islanders, Dorfromantik, Cities: Skylines, No Man's Sky, Hidden Folks, and Peggle. I also find MTG: Arena relaxing most of the time when I'm just queuing historic to gain gold for drafts but it can get frustrating like any other competitive multiplayer game at times.

Don’t know about you, but it was here that I found myself a game to relax.
I liked the game Townscaper most of all I advise everyone.
Who knows more interesting games?
