Sometimes after a hard day you want to kick back and watch Netflix with a cold drink and a warm blanket. Realistically, you should be playing Stardew Valley to chase those stresses away.
You might not ever think about running a farm and the idea of talking to a bunch of strangers per day might make you more anxious than excited. However, its successful mixture of repetition, adorable graphics, light music, and that ‘just one more day’ feel makes it the ideal game on the go.
Is it perfect? No. Of all of the versions available, its mobile version isn’t the optimum choice, but it’s still a damn good time regardless.
Buildings and hoes
Stardew Valley is a farming simulation game where you take over your late grandpa’s old farm. Sure, it’s a bit shabby and in need of some serious TLC, but it doesn’t take long before you can see the farm start to shine up.
