    Something like Call of Duty, maybe. Run and gun, not complicated at all.

    Worms or one of the Total War games. Command and Conquer was also a good shout.

    He is old and retired and alone at home. Mum passed away and siblings and me are working far away so he asked me if i can introduce him some computer games to fill up some time. Thing is my dad isn't naturally good with computers. He always asked me on how to get stuff done (reformat, fix ****) and he doesn't pick up things very well so i can't get him to play the most sophisticated games like starcraft , league of legend and Dota. It would be too much for him anyway.

    What games do you think would suit me? Not angry bird , he said he doesn't like it.

    Runescape is a good shout to be honest. I've met a few people in fairly similar situations to your dad on this game and they love it.

    I guess it really depends on what he's interested in though. For example my dad likes to play games like Need for Speed, Fallout and Red Dead Redemption, but he's not interested in any MMOs.

    Easy point and click physics puzzle game with lots of charm :yes:

    If he hasn't played computer games before anything that requires a controller or a FPS is gonna be hard to learn the controls. Top down strategy games like Age of Empires or Dungeon Keeper have a control system much closer to general computer use.

    My mother tends not to go anything beyond the basic "click and then wait for 2 days or pay 200 million pounds" kind of games on iPad, but worms she was chill with.

    Also really bad at it but ya know it's the thought that counts
