I am going to be attending the upcoming SIBCON, I'm looking for suggestions on what I should play. I am not too experienced with tabletop games ( only having really played 4th edition D&D ). I also attend Quest every now and again. I am looking for board/tabletop games that are good for beginners and easy to get into, any suggestions are appreciated.

Any of the "Living" campaigns love to welcome new players, and usually offer help to create a character (look for a Welcome game or just ask any of the players). Once you make and understand a character, you keep that character for future games. These games are:

Fantasy games-
COSWorld games,
D&D Next Adventurer's League,
Living Forgotten Realms (LFR is going away due to D&DNext)

Shadowrun Missions (kind of like a future version of a D&D world)
Star Wars Living Galaxy

COSVamp - If you prefer LARPS it has very easy game mechanics and you get grouped with players to help you get into the game

For board games, Wynner's Circle Games is running a tournament at the convention. I'd give it a try.

Both the new 5E and the Pathfinder have introductory characters (or pregens available).

5E is the newest and you'll most likely be sitting with a lot of new players.

Pathfinder (PFS) is more mature based upon 3.5 but has a much wider diversity in play if you like living campaigns.
