1. Papa Louie Games

Papa Louie Games, created by Flash game development company, Flipline Studios, is a restaurant-based, time management game series that has been around since the mid-2000. Each game revolves around some food, the first ever release being ‘Papa’s Pizzeria”, where you make burgers, and the latest release being Papa’s Cluckeria, involving chicken sandwiches.
The characters are exciting and memorable, and there are holidays (including Thanksgiving), original recipes, well-developed backstories, and the location’s history.

3. The Sims 4: Seasons

We all know what the Sims is, but if anyone here wants a summary, the Sims is a life simulation game series, with the current generation being the fourth. There is an expansion pack that introduces all four seasons of the year and weather to the base game, helping it feel much more realistic.

When you first start the game after buying and installing the seasons’ pack, you can select the fall season and then play through Harvestfest, the Sims equivalent to Thanksgiving, which follows Spookfest, the sims spin on Halloween.

If you don’t want to wait for Harvest fest, you can select the calendar, delete pre-made holidays and recreate them on the soonest day possible. You get to choose your traditions and save them from repeating them automatically every year. You can also select the shortest season length, which is seven days. You can have your Sims celebrate their form of Thanksgiving by having them eat grand meals at the table, dressing up in their cold-weather clothes, decorating the house, and staying home from work and school. The Sims 4 is compatible with Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Mac, and Microsoft Windows.
