Has decided she wants to take up gaming.

And so she told me tonight she plans to buy a PS3. So I said cool. (while also going O_o)

And then she asked me what kind of game(s) she should get with it and I drew a blank.

Not because the PS3 library is bad, far from it. But I've never actually had to recommend a video game to someone that is so... on in their life(old lol), since anyone who's ever asked me to recommend them a video game has you know, been a gamer.

I find it a very perplexing situation.

I mean since she has my little cousins I recommended Little Big Planet 2 and for her I recommended the Uncharted series because I figure she'll like that sort of style that mix of action/puzzle/cinematic storytelling.

But what'd you guys think I should also recommend?

What are some movies she likes?....
Does she have any sense of humor?....
Is she patient or impatient?....
Did she say she is looking for a game that plays fun, that has an engaging story, or whatever?....

The LEGO games. Easy, fun, low-frustration, quick respawns, easy drop-in/drop-out co-op too. Got lots of different franchises to play in. Plenty of replay value.

Pick her favorite movie series and turn her loose.

she likes movies like The Avengers, Ted, any James Bond movie.

yes she does.

I'd say patient.

She said fun mostly. But she likes the idea games these days could have good stories.

Well, DC Universe Online is free to download. Could have her download that and try that out.
