7 – Miitomo
Why it’s one of the most relaxing mobile games: Remember Miitomo? Nintendo’s foray into mobile that we were all obsessed with for about three days, then quit? I wandered back for a bit recently and actually found it to be a very chill, enjoyable experience…even though most of my friends departed the service long ago.
Since launch, Nintendo improved the candy system so that you can now spend candies on minigame plays, giving purpose to the growing pile of candy in your inventory. Given that’s fixed, Miitomo has become much more enjoyable. Collect outfits for your Mii, and answer questions, or don’t. No pressure. It’s definitely not for everyone, especially if none of your pals play anymore, but Miitomo has become the kind of game you might check into once every day or two for a few chuckles and some low-pressure dress-up and drop games. I hope Nintendo finds a way to remind us all of this goofy social game again soon.
