What Games Do You Play When You Need to Relax?

Not all of us play video games in order to relax. No. Some of us play games in order to plan, to strategize and to conquer. Some of us grind. But reader DocSeuss needs to relax, and badly. The guy's sore, tired and grouchy, and his quest for a game to balm his nerves is the subject of today's Speak Up On Kotaku.

As a few of you probably know, I'm grouchy due to massive amounts of chronic pain and fatigue that only seems to be getting worse. Other stuff's going on like getting turned down at job interviews because "others have more experience than you," and so forth. Anyways, I'm not in a great place right now.

Sounds like a great time to relax, no?

Well, that's what I'm trying to do, and that's got me a little curious. What are your relaxation games? Like... the game you pick up and just burn your way through every once in a while because it's easy, fun, and in no way frustrating? I could really use a game like that right now (or, um, about ten thousand dollars, but I'd be happy with a game to play), and Conker/AvP2 just aren't doing it for me right now.

Any tips?
