    Default Highly social game for my 60 year old disabled mother?

    My mother became disabled a few years ago and is now alone at the house a lot. She likes fantasy/sci-fi, so I'd like to find an MMO for her to play to keep her busy and let her interact with people.

    She doesn't currently use Facebook, so I'd prefer to avoid Zynga-style games that focus on interacting with existing friends. She's also very tech un-savy, so the simpler the game is to learn the better (i.e. WoW is about 100x too complicated.)

    I'm looking for something with simple mechanics that's very social and as low as possible on combat / competitive stuff. Something like a facebook game, just not on facebook...

    Also our family is Mac only at this point.

    Thanks!

    Starcraft 2 is the only answer.


    No sorry - I suck at answering these questions... Probably whatever her friends are already playing (Solitaire)..? I don't know many people who are "tech un-savy" but those I do play Solitaire. Maybe Farmville?

    I also recommend buying her Angry Birds.

    Thanks for the response Phenoca. I'm really looking for something that's more social than Solitaire or AB, but doesn't require Facebook like Farmville.

    Looks like they're about to shut social sims down

    She should try Dungeons and Dragons. The community is good and helpful there

    I would suggest eRepublik:
    quite easy mechanics, daily things to do, easy fighting, cooperative and social... not a bad choice at all!

    Couple of ideas:
    * Drawmything and the likes. Not really social but very easy games
    * WoW, Entropia Universe, Wyrm Online, Minecraft or other western MMOs. Yes the games have a learning curve, but most of them have guilds where people above 40 just try to enjoy themselves
