Gaming Starter Kit
Lately I've been thinking about certain titles that could be great for getting someone into games who has little to no experience with them. Here's a compiled list of games that are easy enough for most people to pick up and also to get inexperienced players familiar with common control schemes and gameplay mechanics. Some of these games are, at the same time, testaments to the medium's storytelling power.
