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?



how i wish my old aunt was like yours ;(

Journey might seem like a weird choice, but if you weant her to keep gaming and not immedietly run off you might as well start with one of the best (and without violence!).

LA Noire? I don't know, my mum's right into all that kinda old-timey crime stuff, like the Black Dahlia thing.

Heavy Rain, and I'm serious. The gameplay style should be easy for a beginner, but the depth of the story should also impress her.

Is she hot?
What? I'm 37... she isn't too old ;-)

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

Can you update us on what she thinks of the PSN store? I am curious how she feels about it considering how so many self proclaimed gamers suddenly find a menu is the hardest level they have ever encountered.

Ask what kind of things she generally likes, what she expects and what she wants.

The story has no depth, it's a clusterf*** that makes no sense -__-

Hmm... I suppose Assassin's Creed games could be good for rookies. The controls are pretty simple.
