There will probably be a lot of different answers, but I just can't recommend Steelseries Syberia V2 enough.

There are several reason why I love them - they have great surround sonud, fantastic sound quality for music, a good microphone...

But most importantly - they feel like heaven on your head. I have never in my life found a more comfortable headset than Syberia V2.

That band on the top... Dude, I have no fucking clue why more companies don't use them. I kid you not - go to a store that has them, and as to try them on. They feel soooo comfortable. They sit perfectly on your head. It doesn't press too hard anywhere. You don't get tired of wearing them. They stay comfortable for years. They look fantastic, if I may say so myself.

I just can't sing enough praises. A fantastic headset. And better than any other headset with just a plain softened plastic band, like the Razer and Logitech stuff.

Seriously, just try them on. You'll instantly understand what I'm talking about.

Razer also make good headsets. In fact, they also make great computers, laptops and other peripherals. But they are overpriced. Razer is the Apple of the gaming scene - no doubt about it. You'll be getting a good product, but you'll pay 30% of the price for the little logo on the side.

Logitech bring good stuff, but they aren't exactly long lasting and they aren't very comfortable all the time.

I suggest staying away from Roccat stuff. It looks really pretty, but the ergonomics and especially the durability sucks shit. I once bought a mouse from them (Roccat Kova) - broke down a month later. Not a good experience at all.

Finally... As a complete sidenote, and not exactly fits your requirement, but if you care for great, clear sound, good quality and a fantastic company (which includes a lifetime guarantee) - I just can't stop talking abotu Koss PortaPro. They are in the cheap category of headphones, but the sound quality is just unparalleled. They are comfortable. They have great sound. Great and crystal clear highs, nice and rumbly lows (VERY surprising for an open-ear headphone). And I tried gaming with them. I switched to them as my main driver. I kid you not. The games just sound so crystal when in them, because they are actually open-ear. This really lets the sounds of some louder games get on another level.

Might not be the best choice if you're playing competitive CSGO, though.

Not sure how I missed that, but thanks for the reply. We have always had fun with the Hotshots Golf games. They are easy to get into and are rewarding. Being that you build your character, it will keep her coming back too.

We have a lot of fun with fighting games like Soul Calibur and Tekken, and racing games like the Motor Storm series. The shorter rounds keep her attention.

The Marvel Ultimate Alliance games are also fun and easy to get into. Great co-op play if your girl is not into the competition aspect. The Lego games are real fun to play with an SO as well. Funny story and team work element is very fun.

  • Proteus -- Buy Here -- A sort of zen adventure game where you awaken near an island, and it's left up to you to explore it. If you want. But nothing happens and the game doesn't end if you don't. Each island is procedurally generated, and there are no goals. You just walk around and look at the scenery, and sometimes stuff happens. It's pretty chill, though, and I've found it relaxing.
  • Myst Series:
    • realMyst Masterpiece -- Buy Here -- You find a book inscribed with the word "MYST". As you open it up, you find a mysterious moving image on the first page. You find it so compelling to reach out and touch it...
    • Riven: The Sequel to Myst -- Buy Here -- Your new friend Atrus asks for your help to rescue his wife, Catherine, from the dying world of Riven... (Note: may require fiddling to run on modern PCs)
    • Myst III: Exile -- Buy Here (not available digitally) -- You visit Atrus and his family at their new home when tragedy strikes, and you must rescue a stolen book in a forgotten land. (Note: may require fiddling to run on modern PCs)
    • Myst IV: Revelation -- Buy Here (not available digitally) -- You visit Atrus and his family again, but are knocked out by a small earthquake while watching Atrus' daughter, Yeesha. When you awaken, you find she has gone missing, and must find her before Atrus returns...
    • Myst V: End of Ages -- Buy Here -- You find yourself in K'veer, the place Atrus was confined in Myst and the beginning of Riven. As you explore, you meet Yeesha, who gives you a quest to free a slave race from their slavery...but you also meet Esher, a mystery man who hates Yeesha and wants you to know how she is tricking you.
    • Myst Online: Uru Live -- Download Here -- You (IRL you, not the you from the other 5 games) find yourself compelled to visit the desert, where you discover a near-ancient cleft home and a link to the old city of D'ni...
  • World of Zoo -- Buy Here -- You're a new zookeeper. You create animals, add them to each exhibit, play with them, feed them, and get access to new animals. The end. It's cute and kind of dumb. LOL
  • Bejeweled 3 -- Buy Here -- You know this game. It's like all the others. Anyway, there's a Zen Mode in the game where you can turn off the awesome music and instead turn on like ocean waves and shit, and binaural sounds to calm you and all that. That's why I included this game.
  • Kami -- Buy Here -- Fill the screen with a single color in the least amount of moves. The music is calming and the puzzles aren't very harsh. It's nice. :D
  • Knytt Series:
    • Knytt -- Download Here -- You are a knytt. You decide to go on a little adventure, when you're abducted by an alien! The alien proceeds to accidentally crash on another planet, and it's up to you to find all the alien's spaceship parts so you both can go home.
    • Knytt Stories -- Download Here (levels here) -- The story depends on what level you're playing, but you're usually playing as Juni and something happens to make you explore. This is one of the nicest games I have ever played, as well as one of the most relaxing.
    • Knytt Underground -- Buy Here -- You are Mi Sprocket, a mute sprite living in an underground world populated entirely by fairies and sprites. On a very special day, it is tasked to you to ring the six bells of fate scattered around this underground world...and if you don't, the world will end!
  • Tabletop Simulator -- Buy Here -- It's a game where you can play board/card/DnD/etc games by yourself or with your friends. That can be zen. Here are some of the games you can find on the workshop: Tatenoko, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Candy Land, Cards Against Humanity, Hanafuda, Monopoly, CTHULHU!!, Secret Hitler, Triple Triad, and The Hyrule Fantasy. I'd play a couple games of whatever with you, if that makes any difference.
  • Lyne -- Buy Here -- Make lines between all the colored shapes, but you can't cross the lines! It's a quiet little game with an interesting atmosphere. Also the pictures on all the achievements you can get are boxes with letters in them, meaning you can spell out words on your profile.

Getting started is pretty simple. The official rules are posted here for all to read. You don't need to purchase any books or anything immediately. You can send the rules to your friends to read over, though I would suggest that you all read over them together, it's more fun that way.

All you need to play your first game is the starter set + the rules I linked above.

The starter set is not very long so you could read through the whole thing or just a few pages at a time before your players reach those sections.

I have friends who picked up the starter set and read the rules in 1 night, then started their game the next day. It's pretty easy to pick up for new players.

Edit: While I recommend the starter set

I will add that if you use roll20, you can roll dice and create characters on there, so you don't need to buy dice, etc.

u/sushi_cw · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

Freelancer was already mentioned, and is a tried-and-true classic of space exploration/trading. It's pretty much a perfect fit for what you describe.

Elite:Dangerous is coming out soon, although you may want to wait a few months for some more features and a bit more richness to the universe. It's definitely on the "difficult to learn" side of things.

If you want a game that is heavy on exploration (but without the trading), check out Ur-quan masters (aka Star Control 2). Happily it's free.

If you want a non-space trading/exploration game, try Sid Meier's Pirates!. Not traditional fantasy though.

u/Blais_Of_Glory · 8 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

I'm not big into FPS but I like story-based, RPG, and strategy games. I don't know if you'll like any of these but they're worth checking out.

My personal favorites...

u/MMMMTOASTY · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

I tried so hard to ignore Diablo III, but when I saw a playthrough of the monk in the open beta, I blacked out a few minutes into it. When I came to, I found myself on this page. Unfortunately I don't have enough money at the moment to buy it when it comes out, but I'll definitely be looking forward to playing it when I do.

I understand what you mean about Skyrim though, I've sunk about 30 hours into the game and can't bring myself to play the damn thing anymore (though admittedly, that's probably more gameplay than I could get out of a lot of games these days). There's just too much content and not enough substance in some of these open world games, and for some reason all the decent linear RPGs have been floating over to the mobile market like you said. Just look at some of the JRPGs the DS has to offer, like The World Ends With You (more commonly known as: "The Best Thing Square Enix Has Done In Years") and Radiant Historia (both of which could probably be emulated if you so desired). So yeah, buying a PSP or DS might not be a bad deal.

On an unrelated note, can I ask you a quick question? I haven't played any Zelda games since ALTTP and have been looking to get back into the series for a while now, but can't really decide which one I should jump into. So, between Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, and Wind Waker, which would you recommend the most?

u/drgsef · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

I use a Kingston HyperX Cloud (~$70), and I like it. It's got a solid aluminum build, but it still comfortable to wear. Sound quality is great, and I've never heard a complaint about my microphone. Plug and play, nothing fancy, but exactly what I need.

u/Sommanker · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

If they all offer the same hardware, the price typically indicates the condition of the console. Read the condition descriptions. Personally, I'd buy the cheapest one that is in what I would personally consider to be a good condition.

However, from the image on that Amazon page - those Wii Remotes and nunchucks are definitely NOT legitimate. There's no guarantee the console itself is either. If that is what is being sold by those sellers, I would look elsewhere.

Here's one on the first page of an Amazon search

that looks legitimate. There don't seem to be any legitimate bundles with 4 remotes and nunchucks, so I would recommend just buying more of those separately.

The cheapest legitimate, not motion plus Wii Remote I can see on German amazon (€10~):


The cheapest legitimate, motion plus Wii Remote I can see on German amazon (€20~):

The cheapest legitimate nunchuck I can see on German amazon (€5~):


Whether or not you want the GameCube compatibility will probably depend on whether or not your kids care about having the ability to play old GameCube games or not. If you're not sure, don't worry about it.

u/rarelypost · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

HuniePop is a great game, but if you're not into match 3 you probably won't enjoy it since you play a match 3 game and try to match the colors each girl likes when you go on dates with them.

I'd also recommend grabbing a wired 360 controller for $27 at Amazon to play Dark Souls and any other third person action games (Batman Arkham series, Shadow of Mordor, Assassin's Creed, etc.) or platformers. I see you say you're garbage at platformers and that's probably because you're trying to play it with kb+m.

A few recommendations for games you might enjoy:

Tales of Symphonia

Dark Souls

Disgaea PC

Grim Dawn ($12 in Humble Monthly with 6 additional games that will be revealed on October 7)

Torchlight 2

Alien: Isolation

Wolfenstein: The New Order

Borderlands 2

Rayman Legends

Portal 2

u/BeastKingGod · 5 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

Something like this **** would be better than a steam machine. Not the biggest and best, but extremely capable and can be upgraded later on if desired. Just my opinion

u/Bewbtube · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

This is the official microsoft adapter, it's far better than the one linked by SL61.

It will let you connect up to 4 controllers to it and will work with your old xbox 360 controllers if you still have them.

As others have suggested you can inquire and learn to build your own PC for relatively cheap over at /r/buildapc. You might want to make a post over at /r/buildapcforme with your budget and your needs.

If you don't want to deal with the hassle of building a PC and don't mind spending a bit of extra money you can use a service like where you can customize a PC build, place the order, they'll build the computer and send it your way. There are probably local services like this in your area (check craigslist). However, these options are more expensive than just building it yourself.

Finally, I suggest you consider building an HTPC (HT = Home Theater) with gaming in mind, especially if you have an extensive movie/tv/music library. If you're interested in that as well, you should check out XBMC.

u/gekko88 · 11 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

I had several controllers in the past years but none of them was as good as my beloved Xbox 360 controller.

If you want it wireless, you need to buy the adapter and the controller so I rather recommend the cable-version for 27$.

u/Child_of_1984 · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

Bear in mind that there are options like this out there that can help the impared with their gaming. In this case especially, by offloading the WASD / Arrow keys to a foot pedal, it makes a lot of action and FPS games doable. I don't know the specifics about this situation, but I talked with a gamer in the past who lost his left arm, and a pedal like that with a mouse like this made him just as capable as anyone else.

u/arnoldwhat · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

Well that sucks. If you truly need to do everything with one hand there are some gaming mice that have a whole rack of mappable buttons something like this.

u/KyuubiReddit · 3 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

for Metal Gear Solid, you can start with Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes on GameCube (will also play on a Wii), then get the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection on PS3 to play MGS 2, 3 and 4.

EDIT: Oh I just noticed you only have the PS3 and PS2. You'll have to get the PS1 version of MGS on the PSN.

u/HellsHumor · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions
  1. Metal Gear Series: 3rd Person tatical espionage series where you go behind enemy lines to sabotage/defeat the enemy. The Legacy Collection is a steal for 49$ and includes 8 games (the later games reward no kill play throughs). Instead of killing choose to use tranq gun and tranq sniper rifle, the game even rewards you for completing it without killing anyone. Even more bonus if you do it unseen. (If you own a PS3 and have never played this you missing out)

  2. Batman Arkham Asylum/City: I downloaded the demo of Asylum before the game came out not expecting anything and being completely blown away by the engaging controls and excellent story. Batman does not kill enemies but rather disables them and stealth is key to survival. There is a reason people talk about this game and it has such high reviews. It is a Super Hero/Comic book game done RIGHT!

u/BombOmbBuddy · 3 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

You may not be super down for another JPRG, but The World Ends With You is perhaps the best JRPG on the system.

u/Furzball · 7 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

I dont have this problem, just messed with some extra equipment. I suggest

u/UltraFlyingTurtle · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

I bought this one third-party wireless adapter two years ago for 12 bucks and it's been working great both on Windows 7 and Windows 10, with my official wireless Xbox 360 controllers.

It's got over 2000 reviews, but a bunch of the negative reviews are because people don't realize that you have to update the driver. Be sure to read the top customer review which describes how to go to your control panel to the Device Manager and update the driver. It's really easy.

u/vadrotan · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

You can get a wireless adapter to get your 360 controller to work on your PC for $10-20 on Amazon. I got this one and it's worked great for nearly a year.

u/SkitsNL · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

I bought this dell as a Christmas gift for myself last year. I am quite satisfied, it can run any game on i've tried so far on at least high settings, including AAA games like the Witcher 3. It was the only one I could find with a gtx 1060 in the $1400 pricerange. Only downside i've experienced is the screen, which is not amazing.

u/tokenwalrus · 4 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

My only personal recommendation is the Zelda and Pikmin series. Otherwise you can just google for the best games on Gamecube, Wii, N64 etc. and download the ROMs.

This is my recommendation for a gamepad.

u/Goomich · 7 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

> Is a game like "Eve" the only good option?

This is actually very bad option. It's a MMO and you can dogfight, but it's more famous from its massive battles, when server chokes up. Sheeps are only visible from the outside, you control your ship using mouse, weapons work on cooldowns.

Now, couple older (like last century) options:

And few newer: (if you have VR headset (last time I checked it was Oculus exclusive and coming out on PS4))

These two combine space sim with RTS:

Star Citizen does looks great, but it's still in very alpha state. You can get either Squadron 42 which will be single player portion of the game in the vein of pretty much everething I've posted above, or Star Citizen which will be MMO, with mission, trade etc. like: (this one is also with view outside of the ship)

X series:

u/MisterMorgo · 3 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

Buy this one...plug and play, in Windows 8 no less, and works flawlessly
