Fun brain dead games to play?



  • I've only played it on PC, but Slime Rancher is also on PS4. Fun just grinding out your slimes and exploring the world, which has surprisingly few invisible walls, and lets you go just about wherever to hunt out these treasure pods and unlock newer areas in the world with new slimes to ranch. They just introduced droids that can even automate the ranching your slimes part if you don't enjoy that.



  • The Uncharted series is a very good "popcorn" series. Very easy to pick up combat and simple stories; it's my go to series for switching off.



  • Borderlands 2 was a good one for me. The gameplay is fun and I didn't really feel bad about putting on a podcast or something while playing

    I also usually keep a multiplayer game to jump into for a few matches when I'm in that kind of mood.. it used to be CoD but I've been more into Battlefield for the past few years



  • @sheria
    Kinda feel the same way about uncharted, granted its the only thing that even remotely comes close to being a playable Indiana Jones game ( With the Tomb Raider Legend ssubseries being the only other one off the top of my head) Love when I have a long weekend and can marathon thru one of them, which oddly I did with all of them up to Lost Legacy ;Then again I barley had time to sleep let alone play anything when it came out.
    GTA and most open world racers, I just like driving around listening to music, that and it doesn't end with me refueling my whole tank, or somehow being damn near in another state



  • Noby Noby Boy is such a good mindless game. Use your imagination and you'll be amused. It's like $3.

    • Motorstorm
    • Katamari
    • GTA IV or GTA V
    • Just Cause
    • COD MP

  • @dipset Oh man how could I forget Motorstorm.
    Motorstorm is so good.
    I miss Motorstorm.

    Never played Motorstorm Apocalypse but I put hours into Motorstorm and Motorstorm Pacific Rift. The original was better for the simplicity of just drive and boost, but Pacific Rim was endlessly fun with the crazy levels, monster trucks, and SPLIT SCREEN. I wish the series never died off. It had its time and place but they were so fun to shut your mind off and play with friends.



  • @dipset I fell in love with the series almost instantly. There was just something so visceral about how the racing felt, desperately struggling to control your car as you transition from dirt to mud, timing boosts perfectly to get extra air off of jumps... it was magic.

    Also, since it seems every game these days either has to fall for the open world meme or die instantly (R.I.P. in Peace OnRush) I think the Motorstorm games are the perfect candidate. Just think about driving across a huge island with several different biomes (Desert for original, jungle for Pacific Rift, snow for Arctic Edge, destroyed city for Apocalypse) checking out different events in the festival.
    Please hire back Evolution, Sony. I beg of you.



  • @el-shmiablo
    That genuinely sounds like an awesome idea for Motorstorm, Sounds more interesting then Horizon anyway.



  • Noone has said it yet, so I will throw Doom (2016) into the ring. Incredible action set to a bone shredding soundtrack with minimal supra-tentorial input required to enjoy.



  • @el-shmiablo

    That does sound awesome but I also feel the same way about Twisted Metal. There are a million ways this series can adapt to current trends and battle royale is one that immediately jumps to mind. Whatever it takes to get a good game. The PS3 one was good but didn't have 4 player coop and online was weird.
