New Gamers!
« on: December 08, 2011, 09:54:11 PM »

Since we get a lot of questions about good games and recommendations, I thought we could compile a list and some information in one place to help newbies.

I aim to get a good casual and regular game for each genre, with the emphasis on ease of play and low learning curve. Games with good tutorials and low prices are prized, too.


I'll convert this post to a master list once we get recommendations in. If you can link a review of the game that would also be good.

Genre's i'm starting off with are Action, Adventure, Role-play game and Strategy.


Casual

Action

Adventure

Role-play

Strategy
(Tower Defense) (Review) Kingdom Rush: http://armorgames.com/play/12141/kingdom-rush *flash-based*

-----

Regular

Action

Adventure

Role-play

Strategy


*Added 1 to casual Strategy genre.

With the number of good tower defense games coming out, they might as well have a category of their own : P

For new gamers, I usually recommend Portal. It's a game that can be picked up by anyone. It isn't that long either, and I know game length is often something that scares newcomers. It's graphical requirements are also fairly low but its still a decent looking game.

Its technically a Puzzle game, but with genres we have I guess it would be closest to... Adventure/Strategy?

Here is a review of the game:

Prototype (PC) is pretty cool.  I'm not good with categorizing, but I think it's
action-rpg-adventure.
huh
Who doesn't like jumping through and flying across buildings?
Who doesn't like fighting an evil organization?
Who doesn't like superpowers?
Who doesn't like mangling enemies?
Then don't play prototype.
Tongue

For those who like old games, Legend of Legaia (PS).  It's adventure-rpg.  The action system
is pretty unique I think.  Unlike in FF where you simply choose the action, in LoL, you enter
specific combinations of actions to perform certain attacks.  It's like arcade, but the actions
aren't real-time.  It's still turn-based.  You also get to summon monsters.
Chrono Cross is also a fine old game.  It's also in PS and adventure-rpg.

Recettear an item shop tale and Chantelise a tale of two sister. Both game made by same company, for pc, and only around 300-500 Mb. This game simple but fun, and made by japan with anime art so its match for us otaku.  cheesy
