Starflight 2, Civ 4/Col/5, Dwarf Fortress or Crusader Kings 2.

Also, Chess is a game of skill much like all gameplay only video games. So it is pretty mindless if you think about it.-mtjormitch

I guess WOW and Skyrim are too mainstream to mention by all the hipsters on this board ;)

I thought I chose very easy, not brand new to the game. - CheesyPhil

Hearts of Iron 3


Great suggestion and yes he would be immersed in manual and lets play before even knowing what is going on. I guess its pretty much of an overkill but a great game nonetheless.

I would suggest to start with Crusader Kings 2 then go up to Europa Universalis 4 then to Victoria 2 and then finally get in to Hearts of Iron 3 (more combat focus as it is a WW2 game after all)

I had never played a Civ game in my life and started playing Civ 5 Brave New World about a month ago. I was hooked after 20 mins.

Its really not hard to get into. I'm a FPS/MMO kinda guy and Civ 5 took over my life.

Personally, I just figured everyone who would be interested in WoW has already played it. As for Skrim, it's a really nice "sightseeing" game, but without mods, there is no sense of mastery to it, so I wouldn't really think of it as something to "sink your teeth into".

The Last Remnant.


No, bad. That's an awful game. The story isn't even that interesting. Well, it's okayish, but the game has the worst combat I've ever seen in a game. Ever. And I've played a lot.
