    Audiosurf springs to mind. Just listen to the music and play.

    Anno 1404 was probably the most relaxing and calm games I've ever played, even when I was in the red with money I didn't feel anxious or at all worried about what was happenning and just tried my best to not be in the red.

    Also Railroad Tycoon 3 as well, I can spend a few hours looking at the trains and tracks I built in first person mode for some reason and not be bored.

    Easy scenarios in Train Simulator are pretty relaxing, too.

    Calming, relaxing, soothing, lulling, introspective, whimsical and mind numbing:

    Bastion
    Trine 2
    Puzzle Quest 2
    Walking Mars
    Cthulhu Saves the World
    Machinarium
    Terraria
    Botanicula


    Hotline Miami and Orcs Must Die have a very soothing effects on me as well but that's probably because there is something wrong with me.

    Just Cause 2 with the Superman Mod (or however you call this mod where you can fly around). Put some relaxing music on and soar through the clouds.

    Super Hexagon also gets pretty relaxing, once you get used to the frantic speed and let your subconsciousness do all the work.

    I find action rpg's relaxing, the repetitive nature of the gameplay soothes my brain (on lower difficulties anyway), interspersed with some light story and decisions on skills and gear to keep my interest. Currently Torchlight 2 is fulfilling this role, but the Diablo's, Titan Quest and Dungeon Siege have also played their part.

    Questing in WoW has the same effect too.

    As far as strategy games go I'd say Disciples 2 was easily the most relaxing. It pretends to be strategy game but really all you do is walk around a map leveling a single stack of 5 or so units. Not a great game in any sense but there was something calmly addictive about losing an afternoon in the repetitive monster killing.

    Solar 2, edit: midweek madness on Steam for dirt cheap (1.74€ for me)

    I played that with the keyboard and found the controls to be fine. Anyway, it can be a very relaxing game indeed.

    Forgot about this thread. Glad it's back!

    My go-tos:

    Minecraft, lately with the Buildcraft mod
    SimCity 4, though I have a lot less patience for RHM puzzle pieces than I used to
    Anno
    Total War with heavy pausing & thinking
    Civ

    Also, Fallout 3 can be relaxing if you play a maxed agility character and spam vats all the time. And you refuse to go in any subway stations.

    it's gone now, but the browser MMO named Glitch was extremely relaxing.

    Friends you say? I heard tales about these mythical creatures but I actually have never seen one myself.
