Games for the wife

24 replies 330 views Edited Jul 2, 2008

Hello all,

 

I recently scored a ps3, and I'd like to find some games that my wife would also enjoy.  She's into puzzles and problem solving stuff....no shooters/bloody violence.  I realize the game market is limited as it's still a newer system, but if anyone can think of any good titles (either retail or online options!) please let me know!  

 

Thanks,

Jordanit

Sounds like LittleBigPlanet is great for her. Comes out in September.

Welcome to the PSU jordanit. Make sure to read the New Users Guide, Good Posting habits, and the Official Rules of Conduct. They hold the key to becoming a well respected member of the PSU. And if you have any questions about the forums, we have some very helpful people at Forum Support or feel free to PM (Private Message) me.


I hear that Echochrome is a good puzzle, and if you've either got a PS2 or if your PS3 is backwards computable then Lumines is a good game that even has multi player so you can play with your wife.

Stardust HD perhaps? it's like a improved version of asteroids you can download a free demo through the psn if you're curious to try it out, and it's only 9.99$ if you like it, it's quite fun, other than that I can't think of any other titles, hope that helps.

My fiancee, she loved playing Sudoku on the PS3, I've never seen her so addicted to puzzle gaming since Tetris!  I THINK you can still purchase it from the PS Store, but I haven't actually checked it lately.

 

With that said, I would recommend that for your wife.  If the free starter demo is still available, download that first.  And if she's head over heels for it, go ahead and purchase the rest (easy, medium, hard)!

Can't go wrong with Buzz! Games and Go! Puzzle. Both great games should should get any gamer interested. Might want to wait for Buzz! Qui TV for PS3 since it is not out yet.

 

Also, welcome to the forums!Smiley Happy!
