Hey GAF, am wondering if you love to show certain games to people. I loooooove to play The Evil Within around my cousins, not only is the gunplay and atmosphere astounding but because its a pure survival horror game, strange things happen in the game all the time so its entertaining for others to watch me play it. What about you, GAF? What are your favorite games to show people?

I got one person into gaming by showing them The Last of Us. They were blown away by the prologue and afaik they've completed the game after buying a PS4 of their own.

I also remember how a friend of mine enjoyed playing Driveclub Bikes in first person mode when he visited, the feeling of actual speed is great.

The only time I've done this is with my dad. He's a huge history nerd like me, so I show him the best historical games on offer.

I showed him Total War: Rome 2 and he lost his fucking mind. Man got out his dick out and started to furiously 'helicopter' in manic excitement.

Idk, trying to get non-gamers into gaming can always backfire and you'll be there sitting duck like a moron. I'd recommend you try to showcase a story-driven game with relatively simple but satisfying gameplay, where shit happens at a max of 30 minutes into the game. People who aren't gamers won't keep their interest much past that because it isn't their hobby, they mostly won't say anything out of politeness.

Anyway, good luck with it.

Well, my cousins as with the rest of the country only plays FIFA or Cod so if it is not either of those games interest goes to 0 by default.

My wife commented on me playing Rechain of memories recently (part of Kingdom Hearts All-in-one package).

It's funny, always the people I meet ... talk about video games and say ... The best video game of all is Mario or Pokemon (The classic because only they know that games)... or they wait for a classic answer like Zelda, they ask me questions and I answer them even of games that are unknown.

When they ask me which is the best game of all, I always tell them Gravity rush and they are left with an incognito face ... and I always emphasize that it has the same quality as a Zelda and is 10,000 times better than God of War or The last of us .... and I show it to them and they are amazed because the beautiful color in Gravity rush 2.

I like to show my friends Waifu Discovered 2, and judges like to show me restraining orders. Mine is definitely more entertaining.

Weird... I left the game because I felt it started to constantly required me to play as an action game but with all the limitations of a survivor horror by putting me on hords of those things... I consider that a design flaw since the game is not giving me tools for the situations it wants me to surpass...

OT: Whatever AAA rly, people get impressed by how "movie-like" they look... or any AA or AAA game like Xenoblade since my closest mates like anime at least

I don't know how many people here have played with this, but First Contact for the Oculus Rift is an incredible game to play for people who have never experienced modern day VR. You're just in an old camper trailer with all this tech sitting around and buttons to push. Lot's of interaction.

I had a birthday party for one of my daughters and I would pull people aside to try it out. Everyone played it. I overheard my brother in law who hates video games, walk away and tell his wife that that was the most fun he has ever had playing a video game. It's a short experience and is so much fun.
