    What game should I get for our son.....

    I've been thinking about buying our son one of the play station type games you play on your TV..

    David is only 6, but he is on the smart side and I'm sure can figure some lower level games for young children out....

    I was thinking of starting him out on the Nintendo Game Cube..

    Would this be a good choice?.....I'll probably like to pick up at least on or two games for myself also, like a football game and a battle (war) type game.

    Any suggestions?..

    Thanks,

    Ned


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Well Ned.
    A Gamecube is a verry good choice i think for a kid of the age of 6.
    the problem is with the Game Cube it is the console where the less games come out for.
    i play on it on myself but i think the diffrence between the Game Cube and the Nitendo DS is that the DS is a 'Game boy' y'know?
    they really arn't that diffrent only graphics and screen.

    if i were you i'd buy an old Ps1/Ps2 or Xbox.
    there are alot good games for those also

    Re: What game should I get for our son.....

    Get him a Nintendo DS & get your self a PSP. Then your TV is free for other stuff! But here is my breakdown

    Nintendo ~ Geared towards kids (Mario, Zelda, etc). Not a huge library of games
    PS2 ~ Huge library, dated graphics when compared to Gamecube or Xbox
    Xbox ~ Mostly for adults, best graphics & sound
    360 ~ Frickin' amazing......Call of Duty2, GRAW.....getting out of hand here. But I would get a PS2 to satisfy both of you. Alot of games for people of all ages. Hell, my fiancé hates the videogames until I got her hooked on karaoke Revolution!!

    Gamecube is a good choice for a kid that age. PS2 and XBox gear their games more towards a mature audience. I think it would be a good idea to buy a Gamecube with Kingdom Hearts (it's Mickey Mouse for crying out loud!) or Super Mario Sunshine (little kids love Mario, I got my first mario game when I was 4 and I STILL play it). Madden comes out every year for Gamecube, so you won't have any problems finding a football game. As far as a shooter goes, your best bet would probably be Medal of Honor: European Assault. Gamecube is kind of light on the shooting games, but the Medal of Honor series is great.

    Hope that helps!

    They also make a system called the V-smile which is an educational video game system for kids 3-8. It sounds like he might be on the end of that range, but the neighbor's 5 year old twin girls love the thing.
