Good Podcasting Games:
Both Animal Crossing New Horizons and Death Stranding have been the perfect sit-down-and-listen-to-someone-talk-about-stuff-while-you-play-games games. Put on a podcast, do a bunch of deliveries in Death Stranding. Audio cues aren’t really needed, since there are plenty of visual cues, too. Most of what anyone has to say at an outpost that’s not a main game story isn’t worth really paying attention to anyway, after a while.
If you’re just spending the day designing and hanging out in ACNL, put that podcast or audio book on and that can be your gage on how much time you’ve generously dumped into the game.
