Today games are designed in such a way where we spend hours holding the forces of darkness at bay or engaging in combat with humanoid lizard cyborgs and these games are pretty violent. Further, these games can be heavy on even the broadest of shoulders.
While it can be stressful sometimes, in the end, it is always good to take time and relax. And why not do it with a pet. Thus to ease the pain, game developers have now started incorporating dogs and pups for you to pet and play with inside the games. Thus if you are interested in such games you can check out these games.
