Hi, I am not much of a gamer but do want to game to unstress and relax sometimes. So please tell me the names of some games. All genres would do (except those zombie killing ones). Even old games would do.
Thanks

If you want games that will give Awe instead of frustration, then.. play Prince of Persia games.. not that they aren't stressful, but you can enjoy them.

And play Some racers like NFS MostWanted and Openworld games like GTA San Andreas.

There are 5 main games. I will recommend starting from scratch if you care for story.. although first one has more frustration levels. So, if you are not looking for challenges skip the first one(Sands of time).

Start with Warrior Within. If you are open to few levels of frustration, then.. Sands of Time. That frustration pays off though. After these two, there is this 3rd game The two Thrones. 4th one Prince of Persia 2008 (really really cool game, pretty easy one... but will free your mind, AFAIK. But a bit high on system requirements). The recent one is The forgotten sands. You can skip this one.

Platforming is the main part, next comes solving puzzles and combat.

In Prince of Persia 2008 combat dose is very low.. more focus on platforming and vistas. I will recommend you playing this one. As this is not connected to any previous or latter games. And, the concept is novel.

like.. there will be walls to climb, ledges to shimmy, gaps to jump, hooks to grab, pillars to grab onto, ceilings to perform gravity defying maneuvers, and finally there is this chick elika who will increase the reach of your jump.

Seen?

Don't mind my babbling but Prince of Persia is undoubtedly an extremely frustrating game, specially for beginners, sands of time almost made me break my keyboard in half, if you want games that are just relaxing try strategy games, age of mythology is undoubtedly the best, very relaxing, slow paced and easy to play.
Also you can try Halo, its a nice and easy game to play.

But non the less pop are very good games indeed(specially the first three).

POP:WW is even more frustrating. I rate POP:SOT much lower on difficulty. Strategy games requires too much attention.

I will say play Indigo Prophecy. This one is a cool game.

And perhaps Tomb Raider Legend, Underworld etc. Just awesome exploration and damn it's Lara :p

Also, if you like mayhem then Prototype is the one. Pure fun !

Borderlands is fun too. Serious Sam if you gonna do mass pawnage with hordes of enemies undulating your vision.

Borderlands isn't that funny when on a single player campaign. We feel alienated in that Pandora. If it is Co-Op, then we are talking about a whole different experience.

And +1 for Indigo Prophecy. Novel concept, Amazing story.. But it has it's frustration levels too. Especially that flashback episode. If possible get Fahrenheit. It is the British unrated version of Indigo Prophecy. Comes with out any strip downs.. yes I'm talking about mini-sex games, full female nude models, moans, etc. :p Just what quantic dreams is famous for.

I found SoT more frustrating than Warrior Within. But 2008 was pleasant.
 
Pick up this new Bond game, 007:Blood Stone. It's not frustrating but loads of fun. As Faun and Vamsi mentioned, Indigo Prophecy is also a pretty interesting game. Will keep you hooked till the very end.

Batman Arkham Asylum is great too, if you're into action-adventure games. If you have the slightest interest in Batman (who doesn't after The Dark Knight), you will love this game.

Try these out first and let us know if you liked them.

Nothing's more peaceful to soul than to make your hydrophobic sim swim for food...
.
I'd suggest calm 'build em up games' like sims, or any tycoons.

Sims will be a oblivion for newbie gamers. And it will be a lot frustrating even with 3 faimly members after few days in game.

Braid is not simple jumpin and play.. It requires constant time investment + scratching head trying to figure out that mind bending puzzles. It is extremely frustrating.. and it pays off when we find the way.

I hate Sims and other games of this type.

The last time I played offline game was MW2. Played 3-4 missions and deleted it. The game looks awesome but missions are very confusing for me. But I play urbanterror sometimes.

^^ consider buying the Orange Box then. www.nextworld.in

Half Life 2, HL2: Episode One, HL2: Episode Two, Portal and Team Fortress 2. All classy games. At Rs.699 it is the best deal ever. :p

You'll need Steam and when you play for the first time. Updates might be irritating for you if you don't have an UL connection.
