    I'm looking for games which you can just play easily without having to worry about to grind, whether you can beat the next boss or miss important items etc. Pretty much like any Pokemon game. Besides the E4 there is nearly no grinding involved, you usually wont lose to normal trainers and so on... The Puzzle Quest games are also a good example. So please dont recommend me a SMT or Dragon Quest game. Are there any (overlooked) games that fit to that? I don't mean shovelware crap intended for kids. Everything beside fighting or music games are fine.

    Hmm... I would probably recommend Puzzle Planet League, but that's a puzzle, so...


    Animal Crossing sounds about right...

    Chibi-Robo: PArk Patrol is quite laid-back, too.

    It doesn't last as long as Animal Crossing (namely because it has an end), but I still found it addicting to the end!

    You could use cheat codes and make any game "easy-going" if you really want to.

    Mario Kart DS, Tetris DS, maybe NSMB. A lot of DS games fit your description.

    The Fur Side.
    The Ace Attorney series is pretty laid back, although it requires you to think a lot.

    Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and Again: Eye of Providence (the sequel) are very laid-back (considering you can do everything when you want). They're lovely detective games, you should definitely try them out if you haven't already.

    I know, lol. One of my favorite game series.


    Try the Professor Layton titles. They thrive on the laid back atmosphere. You do have to use your brain though.

    It is Last Window. Anyway, I recommend Chrono Trigger. There wasn't to much grinding in it and its a great RPG. I also recommend the Harvest Moon and Rune Factory games.

    uh, GTA: chinatown wars, metroid prime: hunters (in multi player, anyway, but watch out for hand cramps)

    Maybe it's just me, but that really isn't what comes to mind when I think of "Laid Back". Rather, I think of "Fast-paced, shooty-patooty ACTION!!1"
    (It's still awesome, though! [​IMG])

    The Pokemon games are pretty laid-back during the grindy parts. I always get nervous during Gyms, though, I'll admit.

    i dunno... i only ever get agitated in a metroid prime game when rockets are raining down on my space hunter butt. otherwise, i'm just jumping, collecting powerups, health and waiting for the next half-dead fool to come into my sights, lolz

    Like suggested animal crossing and chibi robo. Electroplankton is another good laid back game. If I remember more I'll post em.

    Elektroplankton is more like a toy. There really isn't a goal to it.

    Puzzle Quest is pretty laid back and fun yet challenging to an extent. Most 1 player puzzle games are laid back (casual).

    Elebits/Eldees wasn't too bad. Doesn't require training or grinding or anything like that.

    :C Feed the poor animal!

    Anyways, I would suggest something along the lines of what everyone else did.. They've got it covered.
