I just bought the PS3 mainly for Blu-ray movies, I bought 2 games for fun, Grand Turismo 5 and Grand Theft Auto IV.
I tried Grand Turismo and I got a headache, could not even finish a lap, (boring...) I don't know how can anyone play these things, I am from the Pacman - Space Invaders generation, maybe that has something to do with it,
Grand theft... I have not even open it yet.

Maybe I am not cut out for these games, Do you know of any "easy" games to play? that you can recommend?

Also, was I wrong assuming that you can control things by just moving the controller? I remember seeing or reading about it. Something like if you want to go left all you had to do was tilt the controller to the left.

Anyway, what is a 53 year old man doing playing games...  I have to go take something for my headache.

Play Call of Duty 4.  You run around and shoot terrorists.  It is pretty simple.

I had that game in my hands, I should have bought it.

You can download old arcade style games in the PS Store - like Mortal Kombat.

You might want to buy some platformers - maybe Ratchet and Clank or Uncharted - they're pretty simple to get into.

You might want to give Uncharted: Drake's Fortune a try. Adventure game in the vein of Indiana Jones, and a lot of older folks I know have enjoyed it tremendously. Also, as others poster mentioned, Call of Duty 4. And Rainbow Six: Vegas and Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 are a great games if you'd like to play a shooter, but have it be more tactics based than twitch-shooting based. Same goes for Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2. Whereas R6 is mostly indoors, GRAW 2 is mostly outdoors.

Its not Pacman or SpaceInvaders, but I got Pixeljunk's Monsters from the PS3 store that is a fun little game.  It doesn't have incredible graphics or sound, its just fun to play.  They have a free demo and you can buy the full game there as well.

I liked Call of Duty a lot better than GTA4.  With Gran Tourismo there is a method to the madness.  If you want to have any control over the better cars, you have to start w/ baby steps and the game does that for you.
