Ok, dudettes and duders...
My dad was born in 1948. He just turned 70. My mother, at the spry age of 67, loves Tetris. I'm going back home this winter and I want to find a game that the old man will finally like. Suffice to say, he does not have the hand/eye skills to play too many modern games. He's kind of a workaholic and this (admittedly) is a real impossible task, but I think with the help of GB, we can find a piece of interactive entertainment he will like.
About him, he knew Arthur C. Clarke personally. Gravity and Apollo 13 are his favorite movies. He played flight sims about 15 years ago. He might like science fiction with a slight lean towards science. Even so, I am open to hearing about any games non-gamers tend to like, generally.
To Be Updated: I know he is a sucker for movies. He gets hit real hard over father-son stuff. Even more generally, I will try to update the thread with stuff that I know he likes via bulleted list.
- Iron Giant
- Super 8
To Also Be Updated: This is another bulleted list of games I think my dad may like.
- Ori and The Blind Forest on easy (might be a stretch)
I would really love to see him beat a game without any help or at least find some game he really loves. It would be a real amazing moment between us. He has 44.5 years on me and I would love to share this awesome hobby with him. Thanks guys.
