From island getaways to childhood hobbies, we have everything you need to get back to those exciting teenage years.

In Subnautica, you can explore the depths of the water and alien marine life while trying to survive. I'm a huge fan of ocean diving when summer comes around, and this game really helps solve this problem, of course, except for monsters. At its core, Subnautica is a survival game and it is not easy to survive. But the beautiful seascape, interesting creatures, and the whole aspect of exploration make this feel even more.
It is very easy to spend hours swimming in the beautiful blue shoals in this game, but once you dive deeper and quickly retreat to your cabin, the sharks will ambush you. This is the perfect combination of relaxation and terror, allowing you to be truly alert.

Combining Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing, and Pokémon, Ooblets is a fascinating game that lets you build by farming, making friends, and dancing in your own town. It is pure and healthy, just a nice complete set. If you're one of the many of us who took an interest in the Switch when "Animal Crossing" was released in the early summer, this is the next great game to try, especially when you start to lose your time on motivation.
This seaside town gives people a sense of escape from the summer heat. You can spend a whole day easily without feeling monotonous. A great way to maintain a laid-back summer atmosphere in the colder months.

When I think of the limited time I spent outside during that forgotten summer vacation, I spent a lot of time with friends and skateboards . Although I have never gotten rid of an unstable downhill, I have been a fan of Sk8r Boi ever since Avril Lavigne appeared on the scene. So when I heard that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 were going to be remakes, I knew it would be the perfect nostalgic journey in summer.
And, released at the end of summer, this is the best time to maintain the lazy summer atmosphere.

An old but very good Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag has the icon of a great game, and the background is lush Caribbean islands. Immerse yourself in your pirate fantasy and get ready to release the next Assassin's Creed: Valhalla with this incredible title. Of course, most of our good summer memories do not involve murder (hopefully), but this is still a journey of good memories, with a little sunshine.
