Thread Details

Just pried the thumbs of 10-year old son off his iPad for a rebuilt gaming system and looking for games that are appropriate for pre-Teens. I don't want to confuse him with a slew of offerings (ie 10 games for $1), is the following a good mix good for his age ($5 on Amazon)

Dust: An Elysian Tail
Psychonauts
Brothers A Tale of Two Sons

He's a big minecraft fan (as most kids are) & plays on Roblox a lot but looking to let him expand a bit.

It really depends on the kid and their taste in games. My son is 6 now and has been a gamer most his young life. Angry birds being his gateway. That being said he has a like for certain types of games. He's literally played almost all of the Lego games available. Two brothers was great but the ending was a bit unexpected and sad even for me.

The price point to entry is so low you can't go wrong with most purchases especially if you wait for sale times. Check out steam and green man gaming.

Good suggestions, we went the Legos route on DS & Wii. I should look into a Sims-style game for him as well. I *just* loaded Steam for him, but he knows he can't install games without permission.

For your son, I recommend checking out Roblox website

Dust didn't really hold my interest, but it wasn't a bad game by any means.
You have a controller for this rig? I'm not sure I'd want to play Psychonauts with a KB/M.
