Video games are more than just military shooters or exploding demons, blood and gore. Here we take a look at games that will engage the more peace loving side of your inner gamer.
Farmville is one of the most popular games in the world and right now there are millions of active players. What are they doing? Planting crops and raising animals.
Essentially a farm simulator without all the hard work, Farmville is the king of peaceful non-violent games.
The oddly shaped block game only has one goal, line up blocks so that there are no spaces on a line and the line disappears. It's really that simple and it's addictive. So addictive in fact that Tetris is everywhere. Your computer, your phone, your games console and even on digital television services worldwide.
Never heard of it? You aren't alone. This woefully overlooked game is one of the most enthralling experiences you've never tried.
Vibrant bright colors with a simple yet eye catching design, the goal of Katamari is to roll a small ball over various objects until it gets bigger and bigger.
You start off with thumb tacks and breadcrumbs and move up to dominoes and makeup pieces and books and upwards to tables and plants and soon enough you roll up cars and hours and mountains and whole countries.
It's sounds weird and it is, but it is plenty of fun for everyone.
The Sims is a virtual life simulator. Wake, get dressed, get a job, get married and grow old. It has everything in life but violence and nudity.
It's like playing a carefree version of real life where the horrible events on the news simply don't happen and life is nothing but an endless succession of opportunities and happiness.
Everyone wants to be a rock star and Guitar Hero is the closet you can get to playing a full sold stadium gig. You find every popular rock song and not a hint of violence or gore.
You will find your inner rock hero as you jam out in front of your television to some of the best music around.
Video games are a medium like books and movies and television. Creators produce a wide variety of content for a wide range of audiences and different tastes. So don't judge all videos by one or two examples as you'll be missing out on a great time or two.
