What's your favorite "Feelgood" game?

A Feelgood is exactly what it sounds like, a game that makes you feel good. It could be bright/cute aesthetics, a heartwarming story, wonderful charm...or heck, maybe it could be the lack of those things!

So basically a game that I play to just have a good time and smile?

Obvious answer, but both Warioware and Rhythm Heaven. Actually, scratch that, video games are all about that to me, but the two I mentioned are the primary answers.

Any game i play makes me feel good, since i bought them for that purpose to be quite fair.
But my favorite one atm is Starbound, i love this game a lot and its quite a lot of fun, aswell as a challenge to beat.

Hm...I guess I should be more specific with all this. The term "Feelgood" was originally coined by movies, and the main aspect of why they were called this was because they made people feel good inside. It's basically something that's heartwarming or calming (like the atmosphere of Super Mario Sunshine or the happy/satisfying resolution to a dramatic story). In the world of movies, somethings that would classify as this are The Pursuit of Happyness, The Blind Side, Good Will Hunting- things that make you feel good in that sense once their over.

So really, it's not so much how much fun you have with a game that makes it a feelgood but how the game (be it with its tone, its atmosphere, its story, etc.) makes you feel...inside, I guess (though I'd prefer better phrasing).

Legacy Of Goku 2. It covered my favorite saga of my favorite anime. It had a lot of the tracks from the anime in 8 bit form. Just an all around charming game and a real treat to any DBZ fan.

Games that lets me blow stuff up.

Well any game that has humor in it, like in the dialogue or something, or usually a game that can give me a challenge, or something that lets me use my imagination and also creativity.
Generally things like that.

To be honest, every time I have a gaming night where we're all having a few drinks, I tend to bust out Rugrats, in specific, we play the golf minigame. So much fun every time. Surgeon Simulator is another one. But if I'm playing personally, any of the first 3 Spyro games are always happy memories for me!

Any game for the Gamecube, PS2, or Xbox would fit into that category for me nowadays.

Well, Mario Kart is technically one of my favorite guilty pleasure games in a sense that it always makes me feel good because of the art and the acts on messing up the karts on the road! Deliciously evil~

Aha, well it would still be Starbound for me cause the music at the menu is already calming and the music changes with what you are doing (fighting, etc.).

I always "feelgood" when playing Mario Kart 64. The characters, the nostalgia, the bright colours...

I think in terms of, like, making me feel calm, relaxed, happy... Flower, easily. My goodness gracious, what a feelgood game.

The Simpsons Hit & Run and Road Rage are this to me. Driving around their colorful, expansive environments, particularly the downtown areas, is quite relaxing.
