Favorite games to play when you're stressed out and need to unwind?

We've all been there before I'm sure. During those times of stress whether it be from work, school or a relationship, what games do you like to play to help you relax?

Tiny Wings is probably my most favorite.

Well, if I'm angry/stressed out, then I'd go to two games. One is NOVA 2, getta shoot the living daylights outta people online. But the best one would definitely be Pocket God. Take out all your wraith on the pygmies!!!!

Chill, dude. He wants games that diminish your anger via relaxation, not destruction.
Tiny Wings is indeed a great one, and so are Zen Bound 2 and Bumpy Road. BR is cheery like Tiny Wings, though slightly less relaxing, just HAPPY. Zen Bound is kind of eerie, I guess, but it is more relaxing than it might seem.
Nice thread.

so who says killing alien crud does not help relax :P

At such times, one needs a game that can take one's mind off what ever's stressing one out. It doesn't need to have meditative music and all.

I usually prefer street fighter or tilt to live... but these keep changing. A lot of level based games work very well too. For e.g. League of Evil... taking a five minute break and getting through a couple of levels with three stars helps tremendously to lift the spirits.

Zombie smash is always fun to de-stress. There's also pocket god and tiny wings for something more uplifting. For destroying things, I like a small indie game called silverfish.
