Does anyone know some Chinese websites or games that help you practice the tones, I need help mastering the tones so that I can be understood.

I think this might help you, because it's a website about tones:

Instead, in general Youtube is useful but you cold also try this:

Have you seen YoYo chinese, you can find her on Youtube. She has a great tones resource chart which goes through every tone pair and helps you to practice them.

What I've been doing is watching videos on Youtube in Mandarin, to get used to the intonation differences.

This helps with getting used to the tones, the inflection, the emphasis of the phrases. Even if you don't understand a lot, it'll make the sounds familiar to you, and will help with normalizing the tones in your head.

Like, whenever I practice all words sound too exaggerated because it's not my regular 'speaking' voice. So by listening to people use their 'speaking' voice, it makes it easier to regulate my sounds too.

If you find something specific tho, it'd be great!

So far with the tones I just exaggerate a lot and mimic aloud what the voice says. It's hard speeding it up to make actual sentences though. I also remember how to say different tones by associations... For instance, with the second tone (rising) I say it like I'm saying someone's name in a concerned way or I'm looking for them. "Líng? Líng is that you?" lol

Google showed me this too: https://chinesepod.com/tools/pronunciation/section/17

It also has a few tone rules which... make things very confusing for beginners honestly.
