I forgot to add that I lent her Castlevania: Dawn of sorrow. Hatsworth was out of the question, as was Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor. I would have preferred lending her Order of Ecclessia, though obviously not for storytelling... And true, it would have been maddening for her to have to turn to a strategy guide to get the false ending on that, and I'd have to turn her to a guide...
Actually, that might be a good clinical way for me to determine if a game is suitable to hand over to a new gamer.
To be forth coming, She isn't a console gamer. I think she's played World of Goo among other things. She's into Tim Burton (not touching that), so I showed her a trailer for Psychonauts and she seemed interested, though I think playing it would enthuse her more.
I'd like to introduce her to portal. I think that''s the best bridge for us to cross together.
The goal, I think, is to expose her to games a bit more than she currently is. I think she'd be great in the film industry... but I'd rather feed my desired media.
