Tired of playing games that require a tranquilizer afterward to calm you down? How about a change of pace and play some games that are fun to play and also lets you relax a bit. :cool:

They don’t require hours to master before becoming fun—the fun starts the moment you start them up, whether you have 10 minutes or the whole weekend ahead of you.

I still prefer Heroin Hero. Its the ultimate relaxed first person shooter.

Osmos was pretty fun.
Might give Universe Sandbox a try and send a neutron star in the Sol system. :)

Game developers tycoon is neat, but it's flawed at the core. The formula used to grade is based directly on your previous hit, so it's not about designing a great game, it's about starting low and making incremental better games to stretch success out longer. Its neat, but broken.


My lazy game of choice is prison architec.

That would have been the game I would have played if it were available back in my teenage years. Nowadays I don't have time to play such a game. To play and enjoy it, tons of time required. :D

That's what I found too, plus there were just so many unknowns that made it go from a "low-impact" to a "I really need to think about my choices" type of game.

Audiosurf is a blast. Really, grab some crazy dubstep and crank it up, lean back and enjoy!
Osmos is decent but not really to my liking.
Game Dev Tycoon can be infuriating at times, kind of has a steep learning curve but once you get it its pretty rewarding.
Universe Sandbox gets old fast. They should have called it "F#ck with the Planets and their Orbits" instead.

Pretty sure porn is #1

Also the #1-100 spots are in reality all porn games.

Also why is shatter on this list and the walking dead NOT on this list?

Can I find whoever wrote this article and take a "piss" on them please?
