We all know about challenging, exciting, or frustrating video games (and probably play some) but what are your favorite relaxing video games?

I find putting my crosshairs between the eyes of some shmuck in a different colored uniform 100 yards awayand watching them collapse in Urban Terror (http://www.urbanterror.net) very relaxing.

I'm looking for non-shooter games. If I want the deep pleasures of mayhem and conquest I'll play Call of Duty. :D

For a non-hectic, low body count time, I'll play something like Sim City 3000 or Prison Tycoon. Years ago I used to play one called The Incredible Machine which would assign you a task and you had to engineer a solution using ramps, rubber bands, venitian blinds, bicycle riding monkeys, marbles, chutes and funnels.

That's kind of hard. There aren't many relaxing games.
However, one which I'm currently playing which can be relaxing is "Spider- Man 2" for Xbox. See, in addition to the story mode missions, this game has an entire laundry list of side missions you can go on, and some can be exciting (i.e. stopping armored car robberies, breaking up gang wars) or good tests of skill (i.e. the potentially VERY tricky "Boat rescue" missions), but there are also other side missions that are much more relaxing, that you can do easily at your leisure (i.e. finding hidden tokens around the city), or you could just swing around and explore New York, recreated with amazing detail in the game.

Deer Hunter. Relaxing in virtual wilderness. Ain't much action in that game.
