Just thought I would start this for any newbies joining us... Think back to when you first started...
Did you ever wish that there was a 'Starter Kit' of sorts so you could try everything?
When I first started I began with:
Tekken 1 & 2
Final Fantasy VII
I thought it was a great way to begin my gaming career to have the options of all genres to see what I liked playing most... But what would you suggest with the amazing game titles available today?
If you could start someone off with 5 PlayStation games to kick start their gaming career, what would those titles be?

If I was going back in time to Playstation 1
Metal Gear Solid
Final Fantasy VII
I think that would cover a range of genres.... Could maybe substitute Colin McRae or Abes Exodus (not Oddysee.... Exodus is far friendlier to play and has more options)
But if I was to recommend to someone starting gaming today... hmmm.... gee, gaming has matured so I couldn't really recommend this list to someone under 15.... but....
Grand Theft Auto IV - I know it's aged, but the open world is still unmatched IMO.... and I know a lot of people found it boring compared to San Andreas, but in the absence of GTAV... this is the game a new gamer needs to see, to experience a truly interactive, breathing open world.
Uncharted 2 - ok, everyone should experience the sinking ship segment of U3, and the desert hallucinations... but for pacing, character dynamics, plot... this is the better game.
Heavy Rain - Without yet seeing Beyond Two Souls, every mature gamer should play this just to see that games don't have to be set in a square little box world with guns shooting people....
Forza 4 - If the list is games on PS3 only, you'd have to substitute Gran Turismo 5 naturally.... but for pick up and play, variability, I'd tell a new gamer to play Forza 4..
COD4 - I suppose I'd better include a FPS, and to me COD4 still has the best mature feel to it of all the shooters I've played this gen... although on a techy level probably doesn't seem that impressive considering all the COD games since have used the same engine..

I agree with gavsta72! That sounds like a great starter Kit....
But if I had to put some titles down I would say...
Battle Arena Toshinden (just cause I loved that game)
Dance Dance Revolution
Just to have some variety for a beginner.... those were some of the games I started with
