Don't Get Bullied
When starting off as a new gamer it's easy to fall into the trap of what everyone else is playing with games such as a Fortnite or Call of Duty. This can shoehorn you into a game or style of game that you don't really care for but everyone is playing. Take your time and explore, don't pick up the fifth entire in a long standing game that has 2000 years of lore that t0o much, but try your hand at RTS(realtime strategy), platforming or story driven game.
Stardew Valley / Animal Crossing
Mario Kart 8
The Wolf Among US
Once you get your feet wet then maybe get lost in a 100 hour game if thats what you’re into. Just keep and open mind and find what works for you.
