Top 5 Video Games to Play if You’ve Never Played Before


When it comes to video games, you might have heard that “easy” is a dirty word. Well, it doesn’t have to be. Maybe you’ve never played a video game before or maybe you’re just looking for something a little less intimidating than the latest AAA release from big-name developers. If this is you, these five titles are easy to get started in and each of them offers its own unique twist on the gaming experience!

Nobody wants to play a game that’s too hard. Here are 5 video games that are easy to get into.

To start, you’re going to want a game where you can learn your way around the controls quickly. The last thing anyone wants is to play a game that’s too hard and they end up feeling like they are constantly stuck.

  • Stardew Valley: This farming simulator has been making waves since 2016. You can either open-world explore or follow the main storyline on how your grandfather left his farm to you when he died. The goal of this game is pretty simple: grow vegetables and raise animals for profit!
  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons: In this world, people live in villages where everyone gets a house in which they can decorate however they want! This also means that everyone has their own personality; some villagers may be more friendly than others! You move around by walking through trees and using bridges made out of logs (or other materials). It might sound easy but it takes time getting used to all these things before actually enjoying yourself with friends online or using multiplayer features within other games like Super Smash Bros Ultimate!

1. Stardew Valley

You’ve probably heard of Stardew Valley, even if you haven’t played it. It’s both a beloved indie hit and one of the most successful games on Steam. If you’re looking for something to get into without having to worry about a steep learning curve or massive time commitment, this game is perfect for you.

Stardew Valley is an open-ended country-life RPG that lets players take on various tasks around town or go exploring in the wilderness for valuable items and materials (like diamonds). You can choose to grow crops like wheat or potatoes, raise animals like chickens and cows—even get married! There are plenty of things to do in this game; it won’t feel repetitive with each new playthrough.

Stardew Valley was originally released on PC by independent developer Eric Barone (AKA ConcernedApe). Since then it has been ported over to many different platforms including Xbox One, PS4, Switch and mobile devices such as iOS and Android devices.

2. Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a great game for beginners. It’s also a good game for kids and adults. The premise of the game is that you play as a character who moves to an island with your family, and then you do whatever you want on it. You can build houses, plant trees, grow flowers, catch bugs—you know all that stuff? It’s basically the same thing except it takes place in space rather than Earth and instead of animals there are aliens that talk to you sometimes too.

The main thing I love about Animal Crossing is how easy it is to get into—there aren’t any complicated tutorials or anything like that; all you need to do is move around on your new island by walking/running around in real-time (this takes up some energy so don’t stay out too long), interact with other people living nearby using emotes (which cost coins but regenerate over time), or pick up items off the ground like fruit trees or rocks or recycling bins (they’re not just decoration).

3. Monument Valley

Monument Valley is a puzzle game.

It’s easy to get into, and it’s fun to play. You can play it for as little or as long as you want, and you can stop when you feel like doing something else. The puzzles are all logical and clear, so there’s not much confusion about what you should do next if you need help with any one level.

4. Florence

Florence is a game about a woman named Florence who is trying to find herself. It’s been described as “a beautiful, moving, and relatable game” and has been called a “must-play” by several critics. The game has also been described as “a masterpiece.”

If you like games that are good at making you feel emotions (and why wouldn’t you), Florence might be right up your alley!

5. Gorogoa

Fifth on our list is Gorogoa, a puzzle game with a unique mechanic. As you progress through the story, you’ll be able to move around four panels to create different scenes. For example, maybe there’s a bird flying away from a dinosaur and then landing on a tree branch where it can continue its journey. You can use your imagination and create whatever scenario you want by moving these panels around.

It’s also available for mobile devices! If you’re looking for something simple and easy to play while riding the bus or waiting in line at the grocery store, this might be the video game for you!

These are great games for beginners!

As someone who loves video games, but also understands that they’re not for everyone, I’ve created a list of five titles that are great for beginners. If you’ve never played a video game before and want to give it a shot, this is the perfect place to start!

  • Super Mario Bros. 3: This classic platformer is easy to learn and very fun to play. You can pick up and put down at any time with no need for extensive tutorials or instructions; jumping on enemies’ heads or bouncing off them in order to get around obstacles is all you need to know!
  • Super Mario World: This game follows the same basic formula as its predecessor, but adds new features like Yoshi and other characters from various Nintendo games (including Link from Zelda). It also has a larger world map than many other titles in its series; meaning there’s more room for exploration!
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: After using your car driving skills in real life now comes time try out those skills virtually too! Will your favorite character win this race? Pick one out yourself then go ahead and see if they’ll win against all odds…


These five games have been chosen because they are easy to pick up and play. If you’re looking for a more challenging game, you may want to look elsewhere.
