From Wired: “THINKING ABOUT YOUR mortality can be overwhelming, and that was before the pandemic amplified things. Most places dont allow in-person funerals, forcing loved ones to say goodbye through screensor worse, not at all. This pushes us to be innovative with how we process loss and grief, and more than a few of us are turning to video games as a safe space for this.

Gamers have played a multitude of video games to process death over the years. Indie publishers and mainstream powerhouses are helping gamers with titles such as Spiritfarer, Hades, Death and Taxes, Stardew Valley, Final Fantasy Online, and Animal Crossing.”
