3 Tetris

Tetris is one of the few video games that appeal to many people that aren't casual gamers. It's not only great for people new to gaming, but all types of people in general.

Tetris is a very simple game and easy to learn. Perfect for someone who just started gaming - Jonerman

4 Half Life 2
5 Golden Eye 007

8 Sonic Heroes
9 System Shock 2
10 Pokemon Black

The Newcomers

? New Super Mario Bros DS

It's quite easy on the whole so it's pretty much perfect for newcomers to gaming, though finding all the star coins still offers a bit more of a challenge. - Entranced98

The Contenders

11 Shenmue

This list is about games for people new to gaming. Shenmue would not be an easy game for beginners. You would need skill to get halfway through this game.

12 Burnout 3
13 Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic
14 Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2
15 Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag

Very very good game, I enjoyed hunting whales. - zxm
