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?

why not you ask her what movie she likes,it will be as the same as gaming

Age really isn't the issue. It's the fact she isn't accustomed to gaming consoles so control schemes that utilize shoulder buttons, face buttons, and analog sticks in conjunction with one another will seem overly complicated. I recommend simpler games that involve as few buttons as possible and go from there.

I'm sure you could start off with some more basic, almost kid type games.

You should ask what she wants to play, whether it's car games, or puzzle games... if she wants to play something gritty and realistic, with violence, or something softer and friendlier.

It's best to get an idea of what she wants, before you start making specific suggestions.

Anybody who says Dark Souls gameplay sucks is factually incorrect.
