Everybody has to start somewhere and even with video games, there are a couple of video games that people should use as introductory ones. There are so many video games out there, so here are the best ones for beginners to start their gaming journey with.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Skyrim is one of the best RPGs of the past couple of decades. The TES series is good in general, but Skyrim is the one game that gets re-released while Bethesda is working on a sequel and another IP, called Starfall. 

Skyrim is an RPG in all its entirety and if you want a more traditional RPG experience, there are a plethora of mods that allow you to customize your character and have them specialized in a way which would be adequate to the playthrough.

Apex Legends

Of all the battle royales, this one is the most entertaining if people enjoy movement. Apex is good because legends can survive by having good movement, something that takes time to be learned properly, so that it falls under muscle memory. 

However, at its core, Apex is a shooter and for those who like FPS games or want to try them in a more competitive setting, this is the game to play. It is colorful and available on mobile devices, consoles and the PC, including various operating systems.


Tetris has plenty of variants so look one up if you want to start building coordination in the fingers. There are browser variants of tetris, as well as versions which you could download and play on your computer or console. It is an iconic game that has been sold many, many times.

Plants Vs Zombies

This is one of the most iconic games that marked a generation of players. You plant plants and they stop zombies from getting in the house. There are various types of plants to use, as well as various zombies. The game is a tower defense game in its essence, which is a type of strategy game.

Age of Empires: II Definitive Edition

Why not take up one of the most iconic games to have ever been released, a real time strategy and enjoy it in a remaster that is graphically beautiful and regularly updated for online gameplay? Age of Empires has also had a recent release, the fourth edition, but it would be best to start with the classic.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Rockstar makes great games and a third-person RPG with an amazing story and beautiful graphics, set in the wild west, is one of the best games in recent years, a great one to start your gaming journey with.

These are the best games for beginner gamers.
