So I'm quite weak for these North-American landscapes with their vast forests, "friendly" towns, mystical lakes, cabins, diners and of course sawmills (abandoned or not). Could someone perhaps recommend me any games with that kind of setting? The game doesn't have to be set in the US (even Canada would be acceptable), it's the setting that's important.

I play pretty much every genre with the exception of sports and racing, and I really don't mind if the game is old.

Deadly Premonition for sure. Great game, it's one of these cases of don't judge a book by its cover. Has forest, lakes, mystery, "friendly" town, diners, etc.



The forest is the sort of game in which you can chop down trees by yourself (or with friends), make your own log cabin and survive in the wild vs the natives on that island, while trying to find your son.
