Hey sushirolls. What are some of the comfiest games you've ever played?

I recently just finished playing Va-11 Hall-A for the first time. It's not really a game by everybody's standards but it was really comfy and a great experience overall.

I'd totally recommend it to anybody with a rainy night, some tea, and time to waste.

Just replayed this recently. I have it for Saturn and PS2. I also have Christmas Nights, so comfy. I love the music and just the entire atmosphere of that era in gaming. Then again I grew up watching all of it come out and experienced the jump from 2D standard games to the beginning of 3D games. It was a magical time. It's hard for people who didn't experience that time to fully understand it.

I finished it last week, I knew this was a VN but they could have add a little more gameplay, like a mini game for the cocktail phases. But the story, universe and characters are really great.
Nowadays I play Might & Magic : Clash of Heroes on a DS emulator, recommended if you enjoy puzzle games.

It did get a couple ports, though as far as console versions go Outrun 2006 is usually the more recognized one. It's basically a combo of Outrun 2 and the arcade-only SP tracks with a campaign mode of sorts and some other stuff, and most notably it got a PC port that more or less works out of the box. From what I heard, 2 still has some stuff 2006 doesn't so it's probably worth trying out both.

I used to play this and "Within a Deep Forest" all the time when I was in college. It was really comforting and relaxing, and I still have the soundtracks of these games to this day, and "Confiant" from Knytt Stories remains my favorite song.

Unfortunately I haven't played KS for a long time, so I can't immediately suggest some good levels. The level archive is a mess so it will take a while and a lot of trail and error to find the good stuff.

Speaking of games with level editors: Dustforce has become my go to quick chill game. Despite how difficult and demanding it is, the atmosphere of the game is always calm, and it's really pleasant to play and replay stages. Stressful stages like "Hideout" are disarmed by the atmosphere set by the music and quick restarting. It's really a nice game to have.

Fate/Hollow Ataraxia because most of the game revolves around triggering different events in town that range from cooking, taking a stroll, fishing contests etc. After the original novel its nice to see all the characters living together in peace.

For the point and click fans. Haven't finished it yet but I'm having fun so far. A little mystery, a little humor, puzzles not that hard but not insultingly easy either

TuxRacer is great fun for all ages and skill levels. You play as a cute penguin skiing and collecting frozen fish on your way down the slope. I love it.

Osaka sim!
Jokes aside I really like Monster Hunter: Freedom Unite. It reminds me of playing when I would wrap up in a bed and play all day.
A while back I played Persona 5. For me that's probably the best made game I've ever seen. Everything about the atmosphere, sound design, environments and art direction is just right.
When I found myself with nothing to do for the last part of a day I just walked around shibuya. Night rain playing in the background as my character ambled down the street passing the crowds beneath an umbrella. It sounds dumb but I felt so content.
I should really get back to playing that, I've not touched it for so long. I think I'll try to get back into it when the next holiday hits.

I think Katawa Shoujo is probably the game that has got the most comfy to me but that's 100% due to my circumstances while playing it

I played P3P and I have got P3 but I haven't played it. P4 was pretty amazing and I didn't think 5 wpuld live up to it. All of the games had the same feeling of art direction fitting together perfectly.

Broken Reality is an a e s t h e t i c adventure game in a vaporwave-style 90s 3D internet, except it takes place in modern times. It's not a walking simulator, but a light metroidvania with puzzles, quests and secrets.

My favorite area in the game is essentially an explorable version of this album:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9L4q-0Pi4E

The game gets quite un-comfy in the last areas, and seems to eventually disappear up its own ass with an excessively cryptic ending, but it's otherwise enjoyable. It's available on Steam.

The Shenmue games are quite comfy for sure. I recently played through both (on Dreamcast!), and I was really impressed. The first one is kind of dull and slow to a painful degree, but the novelty of walking around a 1980s Japan with perfectly replicated environments is just too cool. Shenmue II though, that game is a legitimate work of art. It really feels like the epic they wanted to tell, and it's so immersive.

Also some of the older nancy drew games

Maybe an odd choice, But Samurai Showdown and Last Blade are pretty comfy. Most SamSho stages, especially in the early game, and both Last Blade titles, have little to no music during fights. Dueling with the ambience of a wind swept field or on a floating raft in a bamboo thicket, feels good.

Final Fantasy is peak comfy, FFXI in particular. The atmosphere is amazung. Unfortunately it is only comfy when you aren't the one playing it because you will be
too wrapped up in the gameplay to relax.

I wish that feeling was common in other games. I can't do visual novels and the only game I've played that had that feeling was Earthbound and to a lesser extent the Megaman Battle network games.
Just the little things like needing to find phones or having devices that looked like more than a black box or a shiny rectangle.

Usually the games I go to for comfiness tend to be indies like Elona, Cave Story, Rainworld, or Minecraft. RPGMaker games like OFF and Yume Nikki with surreal or lonely environments tend to do it for me too, which is probably why Rainworld and Minecraft are also go-to games for me. Earthbound is also there and an outlier in comparison since it's not an indie but it's one of my favorite games of all time and I have a lot of good memories of playing it and beating it for the first time on a winter break.

>Knytt
God, this brings back memories, I spent so many nights and sick days in middle school playing through whatever freeware games I could find online and Knytt became a common game for me alongside Elona, Cave Story, Spelunky, and Within a Deep Forest.

>>453
Oh man, I used to love these games, I fell off of them as I stopped playing mobile games but they were so incredibly charming to play and just look at, even their games for subjects I had no interest in like Pocket League were wonderful. I especially remember loving the Pokemon-esque game they released that took place on a desert island or the one where you run a small RPG town, thank you for reminding me of them.
