When I was in high school, it became a bit of a pattern when my parents would rent a beach house for a week for me to spend a bunch of time outside the first day, get horribly sunburnt, then spend the rest of the week inside playing video games. I remember one year sinking ungodly amounts of time into NASCAR Thunder 2003. Sports games with grindy career modes are just perfect for days that you’re stuck inside with nothing to do. My ability to do this has dramatically decreased since having kids, but having my parents around when on vacation does let me offload some responsibility and stay up late with a game for a couple nights.
Other past Summer games that come to mind: LA Noir, Furi, EA UFC, Rocket League, Arkham Knight
