What's a great game to introduce beginners to the roleplaying genre? Something that is not overwhelming in either rules or gaming aides and materials.

In my opinion the best way to introduce someone into role playing games dose not lie in fantasy or sci-fi.

The most important element is a good GM which means someone who know's the rule and most importantly can think on their feet.

Secondly at least one(more the better) experienced PC
To lead the narrative and let the newbie take a back seat till they gat the idea of how the game works.

Thirdly. The world for the first game a modern setting in their hometown maybe an alien inashion or zombie Apocalypse,the less research a new player has to do the better.

After that the Sky's the limit! A new player who has decided the enjoy RPG's will be more happy to read the fluff from what ever fantastical universe the group decides to explore.
