you might try getting her hooked on some arcade games (Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, etc.) or some easy platformers (stuff like the SMB series, the Kirby series, The Legendary Starfy, etc. and so forth). you could also try having her play some puzzlers, see if she's into those or something. you never know what someone will wind up latching onto -- if she expresses an interest in any of the more involved games you've got, let her take a crack at 'em on Easy.

and for the love of all that's holy, don't stand over her shoulder telling her what to do. Let her learn on her own and only help if she asks you for help. D:

Anyone else watched/watching Weeds? We're all up into Season 4 or 5 already by now, and it's freakin' hilarious. It's a Showtime series, so it's got all kinds of adult themes and whatnot, and it focuses on a woman who deals pot in order to support her family after her husband died, but damn is it good.

It would be kinda like taking Abraham Lincon, giving him spiky red hair, and cybernetic arms so he can hold four guns at once, and then setting him out on a quest to kill as many dudes as possible.

i would play the ever-loving hell outta that game.

you bring up a good point, the condescension in here is getting to be pretty intolerable (and not just from you). please, guys, keep in mind that not everyone here on the forums has taken a college course regarding the distinction between whatever it is y'all're arguing (or is even old enough to be out of middle school). cut people some slack.

Good horror is when you are left utterly defenceless. Good horror makes you feel small and claustrophic, exposed to a world of evil with no escape. Good horror is something like HP Lovecraft, where you are utterly defenceless, and little more than a plaything for the creatures than inhabit the night.

that's not to say that you can't possibly fight back in a good 'horror' game. Clock Tower was creepy as all get-out, and there were still instances where the protagonist could use items she'd picked up in order to fight back and escape whatever was attacking her at the time. i think the meter that showed you how freaked out/tired from running she was helped to intensify the creepy-factor of that game -- it was hard not to pay attention to how she was feeling (and thus transpose it to yourself somewhat) when it directly affected how fast she could move around the screen.

lol, relax man -- it's normal with glasses. that's how mine were when i first got 'em, and also when my prescription was updated. it'll take at least a week for you to get used to 'em, if not longer (in my experience, anyway). enjoy being tall for a while, hahaha :3
