You should try older Persona games if you haven't yet. 3 and 4 are great too, 3 being my favourite.
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.
SaGa Frontier 2.
That's it, no description here. Just go and play it.
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.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jvub3Uo22Pg&list=PL9jno1zkJehB38R6beGcnrMZGx5QIYrPd
That's dumb, get out.
In the current year (2019) older visual novels with "modern" settings are literaly a window to the past. Characters using flip phones or going to the library to look up stuff make me so nostalgic.
yume 2kki is my favourite game, period, and I think it's very comfy. It's an incredible escape from real life.
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.
Thanks sushi roll, I think ill play some right now. It's pretty fun on a tablet if you can get it to run.
Trapping the ball in a single square was just cheap euphoria
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.>>79>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.>>647
This game looks neat, I love these sorts of exploration heavy games, and the 90s internet theme is a nice touch, thank you for sharing!
Thanks for that. Just played through Knytt. Nice relaxing game. Certainly wouldn't go into it with a hard platformer mindset.
Where does one actually get it?
Googling "bury game" only turns up other stuff as far as I can see

LSD Dream Emulator. It's the only game I have on my computer right now. I love to relax and just roam around slowly.
Yes, all the side stuff in Yakuza has always been comfy. Most of my playtime in that game has been playing board games like shogi and mahjong, managing the real estate agency, and of course, wrecking kids in pocket racer. Most fun I've had with a game in a long while.
I'm not ready for the mahjong parlor. That is the real game.
Thanks for the rec, I'm enjoying this game
Make it happen, sushi roll.
Speaking of which, does anybody know if any of the other games have substories related to mahjong?
Comfy games for me are roguelikes and management/base building games. Recently it's been RimWorld, Caves of Qud, CDDA, and of course Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup. I'm very excited for the new Animal Crossing game as it's one of my favorite series.>>818
Have you played LSD Dream Emulator? Yume Nikki and it are some of my favorite games too.
Animal Crossing is great. I am still playing new leaf. I like bow the time travel lets me skip back to a couple minutes after I last stopped playing, even if it's been years. Like there's always enough time in the day.
Civilization V, I've spent many a night playing that game. I would recommend it to anyone who likes strategy, or anyone in general.
Which roguelikes do you enjoy?
Pretty much just the ones I listed, Caves of Qud, Stone Soup, and CDDA. I'm only really well versed in Stone Soup, the others I really fumble around in
For me it's about finding comfyness in miseraboe environments, like campfires in STALKER.
Tetris and dungeon crawl stone soup.
Tetris is fun. The first time I really tried it was Tetris 99 on Switch, but I just couldn't get up to the speed I see good players play at, let alone grasp all the complicated T piece maneuvers.
Have any good DCSS runs recently? I'm not great at that game but I'm alright, I have 5 3-5 rune wins, and I've gotten up to 14 runes but never won a 15 rune game. I end up trying to take a lot of my runs into the post game and dying for it but it's fun. Except Tomb. Tomb is not fun.
There was something about Dreamfall that just put me at ease.
