8 of the best PlayStation games for relaxation



The desert dunes roll into the distance, the beautiful soundtrack plays gently, broken only by your character’s voice and the soft crunch of their feet in the sand – you’d have to be Kratos to not feel relaxed here. Journey manages to maintain its tone throughout with no menus or lobbies and co-op that comes from simply seeing another player roaming the desert and setting off together. The simplicity of it all allows you to bask in this game’s undoubted brilliance. There are few games that stir up emotion the way that Journey does and the fact that thatgamecompany manages to make you feel so much in such a short time is little short of a marvel.
