A person who has never played a video game before in their life has asked you what you would recommend to try as their first game.

What say you?
>>
Super Smash Brothers
>>
Bad Rats
>>
Super Mario Bros
>>
Tex Murphy.
>>
Pokemon Gold version
or Captain Toad Treasure Tracker
>>
Tetris
>>
as much as I'd like to say Tetris, I think that someone's first vidya ought to be a game where you actually control a character, because that's just so much more representative of video games as a whole. Particularly, one where you can see your whole character, because first person seems confusing to people new to it, and they get so frustrated they can't enjoy it.

Also, it needs to be single player. If it's their first ever, they would get wrecked by anyone else, and wouldn't have fun.

So, something like a platformer seems ideal. Not original mario bros, because that's honestly too hard and the graphics are too primitive for this purpose.

I think Rayman Origins would actually be good.

currently in this situation with my girlfriend. she's 22 and never touched a vidya gaym controller. recently got her to play Mario Kart 8 and Mario 3D World with me.

she wants a 3DS so I'll probably lend her my Ocarina of Time. I think that's a good representation of what a game can be for a beginner
>>
The obvious answer is Metal Gear 1 and 2.

This happened to me recently. An old guy in his 50s.

I just gave him my phone to play some casual app games. He hated every single one.

Super Mario Bros, Super Mario 64 or Ocarina of Time. These three games are arguably the three most influential console games, so it would make a good starting point.
