    Since it's on the front page now anyway, Flower (and Journey by the same dev) is a good example of this. There's no real difficulty, barring one optional achievement - you just sort of float around, collect petals and it's a nice chill experience. Not every game needs challenge to be entertaining - telling a good story, exploring unique worlds, or just mindless grinding can all be things that people enjoy without the game having to be difficult.

    Gadget racers on Gba.
    Kings bounty on genesis.
    Final fantasy one (dawn of souls) Psp or Gba.
    Words with friends on iPhone.
    8ball pool on iPhone.
    Puzzle quest on psp.
    These are all in heavy rotation for me. I also use games to relax. Being busy all day with work and kids in the evening, I just need to listen to music, pack a bowl, and chill out. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love our family, we just need our space.

    I can have fun with games regardless of whether they're easy or hard, unless they're so hard that I feel I have no chance of beating it.
    I'd much rather have a game that's "too easy" than one that's too hard. Good gameplay is the most important thing, and a game can have good gameplay and still be easy.
    I might prefer if the game is tailored for my skill level, but that's rarely the case.

    Hmm I gotta say most of the harvest moon games like Magical Melody or Mineral Town... Especially Tree of Tranquility. Like those games are pretty empty just consisting of doing farming and maybe hooking up with a villager with a VERY minor main quest so there's that. Though if that's not enough I've seen some people mention Fire Emblem when it lets you grind so I guess that counts too.

    Most games, to be honest. I play for fun. I rarely sign up for the mega challenging games, only one at the moment is Nioh to get prepped for the sequel. I play for story, world, sightseeing and character development. Not to smash my head against a brick wall for days on end just to see Level 2.

    I would say Resident Evil Mercenaries (3ds) the game is rather fun but mission 4-5 is insane once you press the mission start button you have to fight to not have your life ended in some brutal and traumatizing way for example you hear a enraged scream behind you startled you attempt to turn around only to watch helplessly as your character gets chopped in half by a deranged psycho chainsaw murderer and then the bloody words You Died flash across the screen it is a very well done game though

    A Link Between Worlds is as easy as it is awesome.

    I really do love that game, but unless you purposely limit yourself, it's one of the easiest games in the entire 3DS library.
