Or as it is said in the Ancient English, "Mums". A particular Mom that I know has shown an interest in computer gaming as a potential pastime and a way to liven up some boring afternoons. But when she sees the games I typically play (RPGs, FPSs) she is intimidated by the complexity and says "Oh, I am sure this type of game is not for me."
So dear RPS, what type of game IS good for a Mom? I was thinking perhaps a lightweight puzzlish game or two, something like Peggle or Bejeweled. She has played standard Windows card games quite fervently in the past, but got bored with them after a month or so. Or maybe an adventure game that is engrossing but not infuriatingly complex? Or possibly Minecraft, though in the case of this particular Mom, that may be too limitless and unfocused.
What say you?!?
