Don’t you wonder why farm simulators are so popular? Year after year, these video games collect very positive ratings on Steam. After all, it’s just planting 3d plants and taking care of cattle. One might even be tempted to say that this is a mere waste of time, and many say so. Colossal mistake!

We live in times when, sooner or later, each of us experiences stress. The World Health Organization defined stress not only as a disease of civilization but even as a disorder of the century. What does a stressed-out person want? It’s simple – peace of mind. And while farm simulators may seem like a trivial solution, they work. It is widely known that video games significantly reduce stress and mental tension. And a game where you can just wander around and drive John Deere tractors is a fantastic way to forget about everyday dilemmas. For a while, you can have fun without even paying much attention to the gameplay. Even more, you can play the farm simulator and have a conversation on the phone at the same time. Or invite friends to play together on PS4. Farm simulators are also usually a rather simple entertainment, which makes them popular also among seniors and perfect for kids. Gameplay for all generations!

As you can see, you don’t always have to put unnecessary pressure on yourself. Sometimes the easiest way to achieve peace of mind is to simply click on some pixelated flowers. Is there more to say? Just chill and farm.
