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.


File: 1468892761157.jpg (1.65 MB, 1600x900, 1468578695266.jpg)

Maybe not conventionally comfy, but personally I find WoW to be comfy as all hell. I play on an older privet server running Cataclysm and it's been a grand old time. There is something relaxing about farming resources, playing the auction house, or diving into the lore though flavor quests. On top of that, there are so many beautiful environments to explore.


File: 1468897167836.png (430.9 KB, 550x1450, 1449268733443.png)

that's a really comfy looking picture.. i play on retail lately, but for dumb reasons, i like the model update of draenor, does the server have that?

surprisingly i find the game pathologic pretty comfy because of it's immersive atmosphere and looming dread, i know it sounds silly but that just does it for me!

File: 1468924467736-1.png (152.33 KB, 640x480, 2007-06-29-steel.png)

Gonna add Beneath a Steel Sky to the list of comfy point-and-click games with robots.
You're not one yourself, but your sidekick, Joey, is a snarky little machine.
Not only is it very comfy, it's also one of the most cyberpunk games ever created.

You can also play it for free using ScummVM: https://www.scummvm.org/games/#sky


Kentucky Route Zero is one of the comfiest games I've ever played, and the fourth act was literally just released, after years in waiting.



Age of Empires 2/Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds too, honestly. Just farming the land, "trading", and mining resources is legitimately comfy.

STALKER also has strong comfy potential.

I'd add Legend of Heroes in there as well since there's actually so much to get lost in for that game, plus the environments and OST are pretty fuckin' top tier.

Stronghold is more special to me personally because I truly love England.

I remember the exact moment it became my favourite was when I was looking at the cliffs and ocean, a seagull was chirping and soaring around, oak leaves swayed in the breeze and a herd of deer roamed the plain. All to the sound of castlejam.

It really makes me nostalgic to play.


The overall visual and sound design for Stronghold is absolutely incredible. I make it an insta-install alongside DOOM, DCSS, Quake, and SWGB on laptops.

Fez. It's incredibly comfy. Walking through the world and taking in the soundtrack and the pretty visuals is perfect for relaxing. I'm still heartbroken that the sequel is dead.

I really like Knytt. It's an atmospheric platformer with no NPCs or combat but some enemies and deadly obstacles. And nice atmospheric music.

After crash landing on an alien planet you have to explore the world in search of the parts that blew off of the spaceship and scattered around. You mostly navigate by jumping and climbing walls. Pressing a button will show you the exact direction towards the nearest part, and you use that for vague navigation.

Highly recommend. And it's free! http://nifflas.ni2.se/?page=Knytt
The sequels are also free and available on the website.


This looks really comfy sushi roll, checking this out, hope it works though wine..


File: 1470595380514.png (199.61 KB, 1920x1244, bg_nosky.png)

So, I just started playing starbound and its pretty good. I have checked out a few multiplayer Lets plays and really want to set up a server to play with sushies.

Anyone want to play?


File: 1470619392464.jpg (383.34 KB, 1920x1080, maxresdefault.jpg)

I haven't actually played it, but Samorost 3 looks really comfy. It's a point-and-click adventure game with beautiful backgrounds. Pic related.


File: 1470625487288.jpg (440.9 KB, 1920x1080, ss_biggest boss_10-11-15_0….jpg)

STALKER is definitely a candidate for comfy, at least in atmosphere. I don't think I've ever played a shooter where I can prepare for next raid, with some NPCs to chill with


File: 1477762746696.jpg (211.3 KB, 1920x1080, SatorlMarsh.jpg)

Xenoblade Chronicles can be pretty cozy at times


I really like neotokyo, every Friday is like meeting up with old friends.


I kinda wish there was just a game i could play that is relaxing and allows me to build my own spaceship, customize it completely the way I want with no compromises, then take my ship and just fly.
Nothing else, just fly all across the galaxy.


Oh god this looks comfy.

I picked up Shadow of Chernobyl yesterday. I was so excited for this game back in like 2005 when the first previews came out for Game Informer, but never got the chance to play it, although I have played Call of Pripyat 5-6 years ago.


File: 1478319660253.jpg (50.11 KB, 640x480, 12223213423.jpg)

STALKER is comfy in an eerie sense. The music is creepily soothing, the cloudy weather make you feel like you are blanketed from the rest of the universe, the sound of the rainy weather, and the rubble, burned down buildings accompanied by the hilly, green scenery makes the environment really comfortable. I would say it's a comfy game for sure.

I'm going through the tundra past Plain of Gaur to save Juju right now. So far the game hasn't been very challenging. I know that would probably contribute to it being cozy, but I imagined it would be more difficult. Does it pick up?


Shovel Knight. It's a love letter to the NES, and if you grew up playing Mega Man, you'll feel that nostalgia.

Also, it has a wonderfully cheery atmosphere, and an adorable cast (Troupple King, anyone?)


File: 1479548742462.jpg (951.87 KB, 1920x1080, mandagon.jpg)

Mandagon a simple platformer with a Tibetan/Buddhist theme. Free and finishing it will only cost you 30 minutes of your time. Charming environment, great sounds, and a nifty story.


this is super chill, thanks sushi

I NeoTokyo too. Look into "Blade Symphony", it's a lot of fun.


i just started ffX yesterday and played basically all day today. as much as i kind of hate tidus as a character im enjoying the game so far.


I've been playing persona 3 & 4 on emulators recently.

They make my life feel a lot less empty, which is pretty sad but nice.


Persona 3 <3

I want to play 4, but had something in the story spoiled for me on /v/ a long time ago ;_;


ive been wanting to play these games but unfortunately no pc ports :/ i've heard the emulation is rough too.


Actually the song I posed was from the PSP version of 3, which emulates perfectly iirc.


You just need the PPSSPP emulator.

>but had something in the story spoiled for me on /v/ a long time ago ;_;
I got p3 spoiled but I still played it. I then kinda just stopped and started playing p4 because man these games are long and it's easy to burn out.

But yeah, the whole walking around town and school etc makes it feel so much cozy and immersive for me. As soon as the game let me loose I spent like 20 minutes learning the school layout by heart.

Also the soundtrack is astonishingly good.
Like seriously amazing.

Persona 3:

Persona 4:
This one is kinda hard. You need to get the emulator

Then find an ISO (the game file)
Then find the right BIOS for the emulator.

The ps2 had region locking so you need the same iso region and driver region. ISO (europe) BIOS (europe) for example.

I got this ISO (undub is really hard to find as it turns out):

and the SCPH-50004 BIOS from:

When you boot the emulator it will have some default settings and ask for your BIOS. That download has a load of them so you can match any region your game might be locked to.

Then just load the ISO and select "Boot CDVD (fast)" and you're playing.

Idolm@ster OFA. It is often criticised for a rather simplified management system compared to the previous titles, but I personally didn't mind that. Overall it's a lovely game, with a very cheerful and fun atmosphere.

I've thoroughly enjoyed the close to 200 hours I put into it, and will definitely keep revisiting it.


its not so much Tidus himself but the voice actor.

I should definitely revisit some FF titles myself.


thank you sushi! ill have to check them out.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5FTJxfV3pc i just got to this scene and uh…. i dont know what to say.

File: 1480257776099-1.jpg (860.08 KB, 1280x1024, x3_screen_052.jpg)

Faster Than Light is comfy and hard, almost like a Touhou game, but even more relaxed. Also space is a wonderful location to get comfy.

For all the pilots I want to recommend the X series of space ship cruising.


About the Persona, I sure hope you are (will be) playing undubbed!

Marvelous game, I can only recommend it.


Couldn't find an undub for P4 but you can turn the voices off so It's passable.


I do find Chrono Trigger to be very comfy. Its plot and gameplay are very representative of what i grew up with.


Games from the French collective Klondike are generally very confy, thought mostly experimental


I cannot stop playing Starbound, It's so addictive. There is always something I feel the need to do before leaving the game, and the "just one hour" become a "whole night" of crafting, wandering on new planets and finding more powerful weapons. I'll be glad to look at other players creations if you created a server.

Hyper Light Drifter was also a game I found very confy. Reminded me of the best Miyazaki movies


Shadow of the Colossus*, Ico*, Banished, Silent Hunter III, Fable series (my fav is the Lost Chapters).



I enjoyed this game, Sushi. Thank you for sharing. Playing this with my brother was a pretty great experience, it was very relaxed and a bit sad, which yea, is kinda the point but I loved how the story was done like Silent Hill games where it's shattered around the world.

And damn, that soundtrack.

I'll share a few games I remembered being pretty comfy. Years ago, I had a week where I would just relax to playing Super Mario Galaxy mostly due to that really calm hub world.

I know most people ITT are replying with actual computer/console games, but my comfiest android game is Infinite Loop.
I have been reinstalling it in every new phone I got. It's so relaxing to me.

Another comfy android game that I used to play before bed to help me fall asleep is Hunt Cook, which is sorta like a cooking game but you actually hunt the meat and the preparation times for the dishes are realistic. The point is that the game is absolutely adorable and everything about it makes me very happy.


I LOVE the loop games. To me they're like untangling wire, it's not hard just takes time to work it all out and then it just clicks and makes sense.

The comfiest game in my opinion is Runescape (osrs now I guess). All ways makes me think of the good times; that was when I had lots of free time to sink in to it. Fun with friends and just chilling.


File: 1520125648078.jpg (976.91 KB, 1920x1080, ss_a3ddf22cda3bd722df77dbd….jpg)

Stardew Valley, it's one of those games where there's always something to do, but at the same time, there is no pressure at all.

There is this one android game developer called Kairosoft. They make a lot of management games, but the themes are super varied. There are town games, restaurant games, football games. All of them also have absolutely adorable pixel graphics (I am not kidding. Pics related!) and are generally very relaxing and entertaining. I used to be really into Bonbon Cakery, which is about managing a pastry shop, and my boyfriend is playing Pocket League, which is the football one. I really recommend them if you like cutesy games that don't require constant attention or dumb social mechanics.


I truly wish Kairosoft would make games on other platforms. Their cruise game entertained me for hours back when I had a 6 inch phone.


File: 1520821352820.jpeg (261.94 KB, 1024x768, nights.jpeg)

Comfy games is kind of hard to define. Someone here already mentioned Persona. I'll put my vote in for Persona 5 just because the characters and theme are just so upbeat, but it's not the kind of game I'd play for calm relaxing fun.

Similarly, the Last Guardian and Ico are rather serene experiences, but have their fair share of tension, not calm the entire way through.

Fragile Dreams on the Wii is also really comfy. An adventure game in a post-apocalyptic world detailing small excerpts of the lives of people no longer alive. Amazing atmosphere, great story with memorable characters, great soundtrack… pretty bad gameplay. Seriously, hits the nail everywhere except the actual gameplay. Still worth the play if you're patient.

Yume Nikki and To The Moon (Yume Nikki especially I think is the definition of comfy) are great comfy RPG maker games. They do get quite emotional though.

I think my ultimate recommendation for a comfy game that I go back to again and again is NiGHTS into Dreams: a beautiful game centred around a dream world, an on rails platformer hybrid. It's a casual game one can come back to again and again without it ever getting old.


Yume Nikki is good! Just keep in mind it can be a bit unsettling, sushis. Not in a horror way, but a surreal one. Still, a similar experience you can get is Lcd Dem which is a Yume Nikki fangame. The music is especially wonderful.


Runefactory 4 has a great feel to it. If you like Fantasy Life or Stardew Valley, you might want to look at Runefactory 4.


Outrun 2 manages to be really laid back and relaxing despite the gameplay getting pretty intense if you choose to go into the more difficult sections. It's just soothing to romp through a few routes every once in a while and listen to that amazing soundtrack.


It is a really nice game. I used to play it often back when I had my Xbox hooked up. I also played a lot of DOAX. The game is a bit silly, but I thought it was very relaxing to goof around with a casual volley ball game once in a while. Faffing about with mini games and volley balls was pretty fun.


Such a shame it got taken off of steam, at least there's still physical copies around.
Katamari and Outrun 2 are both games that I can play any time and take it easy doing. I think they're relaxing because they're both about a simple goal to go and do, no sidequests or intricate stories to follow. Most arcade games fit under there too, I can play DDR for hours. Even though it's pretty active and can be intense if I want it to, it's thoroughly therapeutic.


Old racing games hit really close to home with me, thanks for the recommendation. I might bring out my old xbox and boot up Nascar Thunder 2004 again, I still have it somewhere.


NiGHTS is excellent and Christmas NiGHTS is extremely comfy too, although that only has one level. I love the 3d from that time and the style of music.


I second the X series. Especially X3: Albion Prelude.


File: 1523021504986.jpg (952.17 KB, 1017x1508, meme.jpg)

Lovely game, I should replay it soon. Have you played The Dig? It has one of the best atmospheres I've ever encountered in a game.
Oh, this sounds nice.

(I know I'm replying to two years old posts but perhaps these posters are still around here)
Mobil 1 British Rally Championship is a comfy game, looks kinda shitty but after toying a bit with the physics, you get a nice result.

Nowadays I'm busy because I began my EE degree so I don't play that much besides Deus Ex re-runs, which I love deeply and kinda made me set on this career. Also I play AoE II from time to time, I'd like to get good enough to play online sometime, gotta get good with that booming!
Another game that I really enjoy is Rise of Nations, it's really good however it never really picked on, unfortunately. Microsoft tried doing some sort of remake and while it looks decent, the community isn't there anymore I think.
By the way, I strongly recommend E.Y.E Divine Cybermancy, pic related.

Anyways, have a good one.


Monster Hunter and Monster Hunter Dos on ps2 back in the day was extremely comfy, i still like the game today but it just isn't the same.


File: 1523234548342.png (35.83 KB, 250x250, icon.png)

Yo, Sukeban (the team behind VA-11 HALL-A) pranked everyone on april the 1st by releasing a short visual novel about the VA-11 HALL-A characters for free. Check it: http://sukeban.moe/index.php/2018/04/01/announcing-va-11-hall-a-kids/


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.


Kiddo Dana was the greatest give humanity ever received.
Also, I haven't gotten the "key" yet, any tips?


File: 1524811305034.jpg (143.14 KB, 1600x1200, 1476041333022.jpg)

Dunno, the writing in vh was repulsing to me. Not even the comfiest home location ever could've kept me playing.


What did you dislike about it?


File: 1524839377991.jpg (175.26 KB, 705x1000, kids.jpg)

Just try everything you can and eventually the answer will present it's self.
This is not code for 'brute force the password', though that would work too.


The style and phrasing; it was like I was listening to the writer directly, not to the characters.


Thief fan missions make me feel comf often.
for more traditional comf feel, >>72 is indeed a nice choice, i would say also technobabylon, gemini rue, wadjet eye games in general


I guess I'll just have to play it again… I've combed through the game about 6 times now, and I know I'm just missing one or two dialogue interactions. No spoils though, I want to find it.


File: 1526407169460.gif (50.44 KB, 400x346, stella.gif)

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.


I just finished this one a month or so ago. Really good stuff.


I used to love playing Outrun 2 on the arcade machine they had at a cinema nearby, but they've since demolished it and I can't find it anywhere else anymore.


I hear the Xbox version of the game is pretty good. Not sure if it translates the arcade experience well. I've only ever played the Xbox version, and I love it.


I didn't know it was ever ported to consoles, I'll check it out, thanks


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.

File: 1529342902121-1.png (5.46 KB, 560x352, outofthisworld.png)

Point and click games are absolutely amazing and comfy.
Here are some of my favorites, Another World and The Longest Journey.


File: 1530246698756.png (996.39 KB, 1600x900, screenshot_4.png)

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.

Pic Unrelated.


File: 1530431476821.jpg (298.27 KB, 1371x600, 5948.jpg)

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.


File: 1532773883967.jpg (42.98 KB, 460x215, header.jpg)

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
