Maybe some of you out there have a little sister, and maybe she's getting into video games, or maybe you would like her to increase her awesomeness while being a good big brother/sister by doing so. Plants Vs. Zombies is a great game to introduce a cool little sister to. My (at the time) nine-year-old sister walked in and saw me playing this gem once and asked if she could have a turn. I made her a profile and off she went.
My sister played for over an hour and never had to ask for help. The reading level was such that she was able to easily understand and laugh along with the game, and every so often, she would turn to me while giggling and saying things like "Who would even live next to zombies?!" between snickers. She perfectly understands the absurdity of the entire game as much as the rest of us adults and almost-adults do, and it's that simplicity behind a game and its story that is so deceptive, hiding how complex it really is, that brought us all into gaming in the first place. We still look back on those games we started on with nostalgia and the urge to replay them, and my sister still asks if she can play PvZ on my computer.
It's primarily a PC game, but it's also sold for iOS and Nintendo DS.
Oh, and if you haven't played this yet, do so.
The patch notes for God's new Commandments mentions that not playing PvZ is a sin now.
The usual price is $9.99, but for the next eleven-and-a-half hours, Plants Vs. Zombies is $1.99 on Steam:
