My suggestion, go out and get a Wii. The system was designed for people like you
I agree!

Get a Wii with Mariokart and Smash Brothers. Problem solved!

What about a Nintendo DS? It has some opportunities for multiplayer gaming, and a lot of the (cutesy-pie but admittedly inventive) games seem to be geared towards casual gamers of all ages, just like the Wii.

Re: Looking for something...

Jeez, do ya think y'all could be a little bit more rude to her?

kia, games like Lego Star Wars, Lego Batman, and Lego Indiana Jones are all great places to start on PS2. They're not frustrating or punishing at all, can be played together with hubby, and they're can all be had pretty cheap. They have puzzles that that both of you will need to work together to solve. They're also great fun and VERY humorous..

Something in between?
I saw this and thought immediately, "So something where you shoot bunnies?"

But yeah, I'd really recommend getting a Wii (or if you don't want to spend much, maybe a used GameCube with some of the fun multi-player games).

Nintendo seems to specialize in the fun multiplayer games that aren't all "HARDCORE"

How the hell is anyone being rude? I don't know what thread you've been reading but I have seen nothing but friendly suggestions in this thread.

They're not, I was being sarcastic. The non-gamer wandering into a gaming forum and asking for game advice usually draws hostility, so I was simply wondering where it was.

Nah, who could be rude to the dancing banana??

darthraidr, thanks for the link.

The LOTR one looks intriguing, as does Champions of Norrath.

Have any of you played either of those? Or others from that link? Recommendations?

Re: Looking for something...

i played a bit of LotR. it was fun. I haven't played Champions of Norrath, but i have played the 2 Baldur's Gateark Alliance games and Hunter:The Reckoning... i'll be honest with you, that style of game, the RPG hack and slash, is one of my favorites. they are simple fun, and made even more fun with more people playing.

a couple games that weren't on that list but are similar (and i've played co-op and enjoyed):
Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows http://ps2.ign.com/articles/675/675582p1.html
X-Men Legends http://ps2.ign.com/articles/549/549704p1.html
X-Men Legends 2 http://ps2.ign.com/articles/652/652746p1.html
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance http://ps2.ign.com/articles/741/741698p1.html

similar games on the PC exist:
Titan Quest http://pc.ign.com/articles/714/714552p1.html
and if you don't mind your games looking very dated there is
Diablo 2 http://pc.ign.com/articles/160/160629p1.html

i am really looking forward to Diablo 3

Re: Looking for something...

I'm looking at reviews for Champions of Norrath, and for a non-gamer like me, this sentence is very frustrating:
The offline game works pretty much how you would expect
source: http://www.gamespot.com/ps2/rpg/cham...ew.html?page=2

Does that mean that it is a split-screen? You take turns? How do I know what I would expect?

Help me, O TrekBBS Gamers!

Re: Looking for something...

don't fret... in those games everyone plays at the same time and is confined to one screen. the "problem" comes when one person wants to go North off-screen, and one wants to go South off-screen. the camera won't move because it needs to keep you both on screen... it's not a big problem.

here's a very grainy video showing off co-op:

Re: Looking for something...

darthraidr, thanks for both the info and the video link (why didn't I think of youtube @ self) you've been very helpful!

I think I am going to go with Champions of Norrath - it looks like a lot of fun, and I know Mr. kia enjoys Baldur's Gate, which this seems to be compared to.
