    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.

    Jet pack joyride or some of the older final fantasys 1-8 should take up some time if we could have a little more information like does he like football or f1 do you think he might enjoy shooters and what platform he has we may be able to help more.

    Hearthstone is very easy to pick up. Paradox games are an enormous time-sink but are going to be far too hard to pick up. Maybe grab him Rome: Total War is he is at all likely to be into that kind of thing. There is also online chess.

    Age of Empires 2 HD on steam is pretty easy to pick up given that it's a remake of some old ass ****.
    Hearthstone's easy to pick up, also free.
    Team Fortress 2 is some decent free stuff, again pretty simple.
    Prison Architect ain't too complex.
    Various online chess and card games should be easy enough, he'll already know how to play those surely.
    You could just find him a flash game site, never seen any of those that are particularly taxing to learn.

    Depends
    Console - Ratchet and Clack, COD/BF, Worms Armageddon,
    PC - Like someone said Age of Empires, Card games (Poker, etc), Puzzle games (Worms, I want to say Portal but that could frustrate him) or even platforming, Maybe Minecraft

    Earthworm Jim :yep: Need to get that game so I can reminisce

    OP Just make sure it's doesn't have overly complicated controlling. Because setting up buttons will be a tough one for him
