    Default Games for Girlfriend

    Ok guys I'll keep it brief. Can you recommend any good games a girl would enjoy for xbox 360? (Her comp is a piece of shit). I think the only games she has played in the past and enjoyed are some older stuff like sonic back on the original sega, aladdin, both some of the older and newer marios, mario kart, shit like that. She has played some shooters but says that isnt what she's looking for.

    I know the information I provided doesn't really help for shit, but just something along those types of games, maybe something girls play you know.

    I haven't been playing any games as of late, just dota every now and then, so Im really out of touch with what's out there right now.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Every girlfriend and/or girlfriend of a friend I've known has liked Guitar Hero. Maybe give that a try.

    RPGs. Start with shit like Fable or Dragon Age.

    First, if she liked sonic and the other old-school games, I would suggest getting her an emulator for her PC. Even an 8 year old POS PC could run SNES or Sega games.

    Second, I would suggest Oblivion, Fallout, and (if she likes Starwars even a little bit) Knights of the Old Republic. They're basically interactive movies, and generally girls seem to be able to get into them.

    If all else fails, Guitar Hero.

    The only rpg I've ever seen a girl play is pokemon. Which is kind of a whole other level onto itself because it's awesome. But other than Guitar Hero all I ever see girls play is shit like farmville and 'diner dash' or variants of it. Repetitive, simple games.

    My god man its so true. She plays this old school snake game on her Iphone for hours on end. I dont understand how she doesn't get bored. Im wondering if her comp could handle NWN 1 or something along those lines.

    My wife played Darkfall with me for beta and the first year of live. She also plays Warhammer, Starcraft 2, Global Agenda, and other games.

    I pity the rest of you. I truly, truly do.

    Having a gamer girlfriend isn't all it's cracked up to be, in my opinion at least. I like to keep the two worlds separate if possible.

    Scott Pilgrim vs the World if it isn't PS3 exclusive. Maybe Castle Crashers.

    Non-gamers have never held my interest.

    I'd suggest Sims, all casual gamers seem to have it. And its the one game most girls I've talked to (girlfriend included) seem to tolerate best, quite a few play it.
