Well in my family there are a few gamers actually, "casual" gamers mostly that is.
My mom used to play some Sailor Moon puzzle game on a SNES emulator, Caesar III, Pharaoh, EyeToy Kinetic and ocasionally the Boxing minigame on Wii Sports, now she usually plays some facebook Tetris, Bejeweled 2, Bejeweled Twist and Brain Age 2, my grandma plays these last three too.
Oh and my little cousin likes flash and Barbie, WinX Club, etc. , her older sister (AKA my older cousin) likes RPGs like myself though she does play a little SSBB match with me every once in a while, and back when I had my Gamecube we'd play Sonic Adventure 2 Battle A LOT.
What about you?

Other than myself my mom is in the loosest sense of the word. Whenever she has a free moment she's on the PC playing Zuma. (the game she plays cycles every few months from Hell's Kitchen, to Diner Dash, to online crosswords, to Zuma)
My aunt used to play old old old Apogee(rip 3DRealms)/id games like Commander Keen, Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure, etc and was pretty good at them but she was sorta OCD when it came to completion. She saw an apple power-up in one game and spent months jumping over and over again to see if it could be gotten. She even asked 3DRealms if it was possible. They actually gave her a useful answer on a 15 year old+ game.

My sister is into gaming, she's got a DS, a PS2 and a N64 that I gave her. She's into stuff like Zelda and Spyro. My niece has a DS, don't really know what she plays.

My nephews pretty into gaming though. He's got a Xbox, a 360, a PSP, my spare PAL Saturn and my spare PAL Dreamcast. He's mostly into racing games but plays all sorts really.

My mom plays some farming game on Facebook and a couple of puzzle games.

My 61 year old mother plays her DS so much she has been known to charge it twice in one day. Her current thing is searchy-findy games. She's already finished I Spy Funhouse, Mystery Case Files: Millionheir, Cate West - The Vanishing Files and Hidden Objects - The Big Journey.

Are there any other DS games of this genre?

Most of the men in my family are gamers (all except for me specialize in sports and fighting games). My younger niece and I are the importers of the family and the RPG fanatics. Except for her, there aren't any other female gamers in the family which is a shame.

I think I'm the most hardcore gamer in my family but that's not saying much since they don't play games much.

My bro got me into gaming when he let me play on his GBA emulator back in the day. He doesn't play much except for maybe some old games like pokemon and dragon quest. My sis doesn't play much at all anymore. Mom and Dad don't play any games at all. And that just leaves me with my DS and PC games.

I'm mostly the gamer in my house taking up the pc, ds, and 360 for gaming.
My dad was really hardcore into Diablo 2 back in the day and currently has been hogging the 360 to play FFXI endlessly.
He also has the ability to pwn me at any game we play together.

I'm the hardcore gamer in my house but all my six brothers and sisters and my mom they sometimes play something. But back in the N64 days we always played Mario kart, mario 64, the mario parties, and even we all helped to beat Ocarina of Time. But time has pased and are all grow up and I'm the only one that still like to play videogames and sometimes they play with me but I think the little one is becoming a hardcore gamer cuz he have a wii, nds, psp and he play all days and even he beat me twice in a row while we were playing SSBB yesterday and he only have 9 years. And my father doesn't even know how to turn on a 360, i had a fight a discussion likely with him recent cuz he unplug my 360 from the wall while it was turned on and the 360 fucked-up with the RED RING OF DEATH, but anyway i fixed it but man that night i was REALLY mad with him

Just me now, my dad used to be into all the older FPS games (Doom, Duke 3D, Shadow Warrior, Wolf 3D, RoTT, etc) and even let me play all of them, they were my first games. These days my dad just plays WoW, though.

Now I just play a little bit of everything. Fuck those "hardcore" games though, they've been hyped the fuck out of to the point where I can't even find them fun.

My Grandma used to play some N64, certainly not on her own.
My brothers are all about the Retros, they are both 8 years and 12 years older than me.

I only have one or two gamers in my family. My dad used to play video games when I was young but now does more on the computer than on consoles. I have a 2nd cousin who plays lots of games. That's about all I got.

My oldest brother plays only GTA and sometimes Unreal Tournament or a CoD game.
My other brother plays GTA, racing games and strategy games.
My mother plays Tetris sometimes, but that's all.
My nephew of 12 year old got into gaming thanks to me.
I gave him CoD 1 some while ago, and he's playing it online a lot now. He's really getting good!
