I think Starbound should take Terraria's place in this. I think Terraria is a great game but then Chucklefish took it, and perfected it and called it Starbound which is why they call it Terraria's spiritual successor. Also the soundtrack is very peaceful and you could say it's relaxing.

Calling Dear Esther a game is quite a stretch. I would call is a "Barely Interactive Story." I bought the game for 99 cents and it was a waste of 99 cents and 2 hours of my life.

Not really being a gamer and wanting something easier to play, this article was right up my alley. I ended up in buying Machinarium and NightSky (plus a couple others), and have been liking what I see. The Steam software for PC seems pretty nice, too. Thanks, Brittany :)

edit: The couple others I did buy, were from recommendations of members who posted in this thread, Papers, Please and Kerbal Space Program (looks pretty good) Thanks, "guys" :)

oddly, I've had the hell scared out of me in minecraft more than any other game. nothing worse than just getting done mining some coal only to turn around and see and ender eye balling you.

Great article, had never heard of some of these...downloaded Eufloria, Audiosurf, NightSky, Anno 2070, and Solar 2.

Audiosurf is ONLY relaxing on the easy setting, once you get hard it's gets really stressful... haha. :)

I'd add Auditorium to that list

"Papers, Please" is a good one that doesn't have you constantly pulling the trigger or sitting on edge of your seat.

Why are both slides 11 & 12 for the same game?

I don't find minecraft to be particularly relaxing as the pixelated graphics give me a serious headache.

Anno 2070 is a non-violent RTS?
