Recommend a game to get someone into gaming for $4!

Video games can be intimidating to non-players. Imagine explaining how to use a controller to someone who'd never held one before, let alone how to navigate the layers of sub-menus in a strategy game, or how to combo abilities for burst damage in an RPG.

This is a tragedy. The barriers to entry in many triple-A games are keeping thousands from enjoying the world's most exciting entertainment and perhaps its greatest hobby. We need to figure out how to bring them on board gently - games that are easy to pick up and play, yet which quickly reveal the potential of this amazing medium and leave first-timers, the freshest of noobs, wanting more. The first tasty breadcrumb on a trail that'll have them 360-noscoping and calling politely for "more deeps" on their headset in no time.

What's your pick for the best gateway game?


Task: Tell us via writing or video which game you'd recommend to a non-gamer to get them into the hobby, and why it'd leave them hooked!
