Games can let us drift off into our own world especially ones like Grand Theft Auto where you can just do whatever you want. So can these games help us relax especially during stressful periods? If you are stressed, then you can relieve some of it by driving along some of the less busy roads on GTA. You could even release some anger by going on a little rampage in the city. But it is probably important that you don't play multiplayer games as it tends to make people a lot more stressful and less relaxed if they keep losing to other players etc. Does anyone else play games to relax?
