Adventure games like supermario would be helpfull, and have to be something extremly simple, so she can open it, play it without constantly calling me -_- thx

    Just a heads up, Super Mario is a Platformer, not Adventure. Adventure would be like King's Quest or Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney.

    Also, Megaman 2 [​IMG]

    i personally find this really cool. adults who put real effort to get into gaming are respected by me. especially if they are doing it to bond with their kids more and what not.
    this did not happen to me btw sadly. my mom just plays Zuma all night long

    This SNES platformer in which you are a big headed kid and you stomp with your head. I don't remember the name but it was awesome.


    OH YEAH.

    Bonk. Well, Super Bonk, it's more colorful.

    i am surprised you haven't showed her tetris or bejeweled (most simplest game you can play), and she can't play sims? scandalous!

    But leave her a crafting recipe sheet if she's not that tech savvy like my grandparents. (I mean, they wouldnt be able to find something specific on google.)

    i did try make her play tetris and bejeweled she discarted them right away, as for games like monkey island [​IMG] cant really do, mostly because of languague, our main isnt english, so i cant have her a thinking game mostly in english, the zuma game seems pretty cool for her to try, and indee games is really what i have been searching for her, no stuff on snes tough, i dont want her calling everytime she messes up with emulators, i tought about sonic tough [​IMG] wonder if her eyes, gona be able to keep up.

    Zuma and Ricochet. Great casual games to pass some time.

    You grandma likes Super Mario? That is very cool.
