Hello lads, recently I've been listening to a lot of podcasts and I wanted to play while listening to them but I am not sure what to play. Any suggestions?

@fummycloud: Probably games that aren't very "story-heavy." You'd want to play games that have plenty of gameplay with less cutscenes.

Just my opinion though.

Mario games are generally best. You usually don't have to pay much attention to those.

Anything that comes across as second nature in controls and structure. Mostly games you've likely already sunk tons of hours into.

Much like @speeny would probably think story heavily games with unskippable cutscenes are a no for this particular requirement. But Arcade games, Puzzle games, and even Tactical RPGs should fit the bill. Even sandbox adventure games should be accessible while listening to a podcast.

Muscle memory games is usually the correct terminology.

I listen to a TON of podcasts too. My go tos are the grinding sections of RPGs, platformers, puzzles, and recently Dragon Quest Builders.

None because that's really annoying. Go clean up your room.

I breezed through the assassins creed Ezio collection whilst listening to various podcasts.
