Starter Games For Newbies

Credit for trying, but lacks originality and difficulty in obtaining copies. Vanessa Formato provides 5 games to help the new kids get into gaming. One of them being Golden Sun for the Gameboy Advance. Cheapest I could find was Amazon.com at 65.29. Most new gamers probably don't want to drop that kind of money.

The suggestions aren't bad, but not really the best for the newer gen, or even the older gen. How about things people can buy/afford on their limited budget?

For example, the holiday PS3, XBox 360 bundles they come out with every year. They will typically come with 2 games that have sold well within the past fiscal year. In this case, the PS3 bundle has Uncharted 2, GT5, and MAG, all great starter games, and an extra controller, and a movie, and some downloadable games from the PSN. That's a nice deal for the price.

Want something for your PC, Sims City 4 Deluxe edition. 5 games in one package for under $20, and all are great games. Or you wanted to get your hands on more of a sandbox game? Well GTA4 has the game plus the 2 add-ons for roughly $35. Or if you have a PS2 and/or a backwards compatible PS3, GTA:The Trilogy gives you GTA3, Vice City, and San Andreas in one disc.

Straight up gore and action? God of War: Collection. The first 2 games in one. Like speed? The new Driver: San Francisco or Driver: Parallel Lines would be a great start into the genre.

Got little ones in the house? Mario Kart for the Wii is always great fun (one thing the original column did get right).

War Simulator? Ace Combat has a few bundles on it's series on the Xbox 360.

So see, lots of cheap, good options that give you multiple games for the price of one! Just keep your eyes open.
