The last of us remastered. About as immersive as you could wish for.

No Man's Sky. Go exploring underground caves, or even under SEA caves. It's hard not to get lost in this game.

Personally my go to has been the Forza Horizon games for a while, can have a lot of fun just exploring the big open world and the variety of cars(I particularly liked Horizon 2's world but maybe because it reminds me of Gozo), but recently started playing modded Minecraft again(lol) and that can be very relaxing and absorbing if you like building things for fun especially with some tech mods(Some amazing graphical mods too).

Even if it is graphically quite pedestrian, I get really immersed to RimWorld. Takes a while to get a feel of your colony's atmosphere but when I had more time I had just days when I only played RimWorld.

I misread that as Rimworld, takes a while to get a feel of your colon.

^ This, such a great game and had me thinking about it even when I wasn't playing it.

Top 5 ever within two hours. I've been hooked ever since. I keep expecting it to end, due to the small crapness of most modern games but it's absolutely huge.

It was worth buying a Pro for tbh. Just to get better alias from the increased resolution.

Spiderman, HZD, GOW, are all fun on PlayStation.
For PC it's Witcher 3 but that's an obvious one.
