Getting sheepish? Sheep are common in farming simulator games, but you can also find them in other types of games, like RPGs and roguelikes. Sheep in video games either look a lot like real sheep and are used as livestock, play up their cutest traits, or give the animal a new look with different designs.
Some games also use mythology in the way the sheep look or how they got there, which makes them more interesting. Whether they’re just ordinary sheep or have something more going on, these animals are always friendly, and when you see them, you’ll be drawn to them.
