I'm in the same boat. My girlfriend LOVES LittleBigPlanet, and any old cute side-scrolling platform (ie Super Mario Bros), but she can't stand anything that's 1st Person or 3D, as she'll get dizzy. We played Lego Star Wars, and it was fun, but the other two Lego games were just more of the same with different suits.
One of our very favorite games to play, which sadly isn't on the PS3, was Worms 2 (Back before it got all 3D). I keep hoping that one day they'll port it over.
If you find any other games that you both enjoy, keep posting. You're not alone.Message Edited by ashravenclaw on 01-20-2009 11:44 AM
My wife also can't stand 3d games for the same reason-- they make her dizzy/nauseous. She generally is not a gamer whatsoever. We played a fair bit of the original Rock Band with her on drums (I never saw that one coming). Buzz Quiz has also gone over well.
If anyone has a wife who likes the puzzlers/old school bliss, then Sonics Ultimate Genesis Collection is likely the one and only game she'll ever need. Columns & Dr. Robotniks Mean Bean Machine are both tetris style block droppers (my wife loves the latter). Plus there's plenty Sonic the Hedgehog games, or Mario'ish clones (Alex Kidd) .
I personally love Lumines Supernova, another awesome block dropper on PSN. I presumed the wife would be all over this ... and wasn't. In all honesty I can never completely anticipate her gaming preferences, so I guess part of it is you won't know (nor will she) until you give it a try!
Happy Marital Gaming!
