    I thought he meant he could do all the 'Press Start to Play' and entering names at the beginning of the game allowing the child to enjoy randomly mashing buttons during actual gameplay.

    Here is a list of the games my boy has been playing over the last couple of years. He has just turned 6.
    The only game he seems to want to play now is Pokemon Platinum. He needs a little help to get through some of the bits in Pokemon as reading is not his strong point but he does most of it on his own.

    This list is a little large.
    It is everything currently on his cart. He is capable of playing all the games listed. There are a couple he messes around with but probably doesn't full grasp the game.

    New Super Mario Bros
    Sonic Rush Adventure
    Shrek - Smash n' Crash Racing
    Asphalt - Urban GT 2
    Mario Party DS
    DK - Jungle Climber

    You do know that most of these games require basic reading knowledge?

    I don't know about you but I hate it when kids ask "WHAT DO I DO" every minute.

    Oh my god I hate that, I try not to scream at them "Bloody well figure it out yourself, I did". Most games on the DS are pretty straight forward though so it's all good.

    You should get Animal Crossing Wild World. It is a great game she can get into at a slow pace. It's like a life sim where you dig,fish,and farm and it's very addicting. It it's a great game for kids. I even like to play the Wii version sometimes. It's one of those games you cant be in a bad mood when you play. It's also one of the most popular games on the NDS.

    I had a feeling someone'd mention Canvas Curse/Power Paintbrush. (Mantis41)

    If she treats the touch screen properly then playing it would be nice and colourful. [​IMG]

    It’s not like that at all.
    He can play for hours without asking for help. It then just takes 10 mins to do a couple of things in the right sequence and he is off again.

    He understands how to fix paralyze, poison, and other ailments and knows how to catch Pokemon and use the storage system on his own. He has also figured out how to give his Pokemon battle items and transfer them to and from the bag and storage and has a good grasp of the battle sequence and which moves work and when. He is almost at the stage where he doesn't need help at all he just keeps talking to everyone until he is let through to the next area. It seems to work even though he may not understand the underlying story. He only gets stuck every now and then.

    Here’s a tip. If you want your Pokemon to go up levels quickly then give it to a 6 year old. They can spend hours doing random encounters and not get bored.

    It can be educational for them as well. It is actually teaching him to read. He is picking up words from the game daily. I find he also picks up a lot of math from playing games.
