List RulesVote up all the chillest casual games currently on Steam.

Every once in a while, it's nice to play a casual game on PC that's stress-free, relaxing, and overall just enjoyable. Perhaps you have a small child that wants to game with you, so you're looking for an easy PC game that you two can play together. Either way, let's take a look at some good choices for casual PC games that don't require too much thinking or muscle memory.

The original Plants vs. Zombies might just be one of the best casual PC games ever created. The balance of how much effort you put into it and the joy you get out of it is perfect. Other good casual PC games include Castle Crashers, a fun beat-em-up that will make you laugh, and Stardew Valley, a game that is extremely deep, yet super simple at the same time.

That said, just because these games are "casual" doesn't mean they're necessarily easy. Sure, there are definitely a few easy PC games on this list, but others can get a little bit challenging at times, despite the low amount of effort they require to be played. Vote up your favorites, and check out what others have voted on to get some solid recommendations.
