My ten year old sister and her friend were playing an offline campaign of Dead Center in Left 4 Dead 2. Cue hilarious screaming of WE BROKE THE COKE
, and a rediculously scary Wandering Witch that managed to sneak up behind them. Nevertheless, they were hooked.
They also hate fighting games due to the fact that they always complain when they lose and never bother to learn how to actually play the game sans mashing the controller. However, they were hooked on Mv C 3
when I first got it, and my sister actually found out how to switch characters in mid-air combos before I even got to read the manual.
