    It depends on what type of game that said 8 year old likes. People have different preferences, even at that young age.

    My son (7) has the following that he plays to death:

    Mario Kart
    Super Mario Bros
    Mario Party DS
    Dinosaurs - Battle of Giants
    Scrabble (yeah, I know, who'd have thought it?)
    Pac'n'Roll

    There are others on there, but those are the ones he's always playing when I look over his shoulder.

    If he can read, get him Pokemon HG/SS. Also, download Lameboy and let him play Pokemon Red so he can have a real childhood.

    I don't know if 8 year olds can?
    I was just curious what game would be suitable for one.

    I don't even have a kid let alone know anyone who is even younger than 14.
    There seemed to be forums asking games for 5 year olds, 6 year olds, and 9 year olds so what about the 8 year old demographic? Who is going to represent them?
