The Daily Grind: What’s the most chill MMO for when you want to relax?


Even as the video game industry keeps trying to go bigger, more epic, and more bombastic in its games, I’ve noticed that there’s this counter-trend of creating titles that feature a more relaxed pace and serene atmosphere. In our space, this might include titles like Palia, Book of Travels, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons, where picking flowers or choosing wallpaper for your home is about as thrilling of an activity as you’re likely to get during a play session.

Because sometimes we need to relax, don’t we? It’s the end of a day or a stressful week and we wouldn’t mind downshifting into a mellow space. This is why I usually end my day playing LOTRO, because even with combat, it always feels more of a chill and laid-back experience than other MMOs.
