Simulation Games

There is a sort of therapeutic cadence that simulation video games, such as Farming Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator, provide. These often simple and down-to-earth games can allow you to get lost in the simple pleasures of, for example, driving trucks down a highway or managing crops on a farm. Though these games are often not the most exciting to watch, they are easy to completely immerse yourself in.
