For all the games with complex control schemes, economies, balance changes, and loot, it’s nice to sit down with something that isn’t too complicated. Whether you’re looking for something easy to control, or experiences to hop in and out of with minimal fuss, these 15 titles and their shockingly simple mechanics will pull you in. Let’s take a closer look at each and explain why.

A Plague Tale: Innocence

A Plague Tale: Requiem introduced new gameplay options like controlling rats, a crossbow, larger environments for more opportunities and so on. But it’s easy to forget just how straightforward Innocence was. For the most part, you would be running, sneaking around, bonking enemies with the slingshot, solving small puzzles to progress past the rats, and so on. Not to say that any of this was bad. It’s smaller scale than Requiem and a perfect introduction to the world.
