    Hey tempers! My friend has asked me to put games on her son's R4. Here's the criteria:
    • Ages: Mum - 30, Son - 7
    • Son doesn't really like losing
    • Mum wants puzzle games for herself and movie-based games for her son -> I know most movie-based games suck but...what can I do?
    • Son would prefer games that are easily beatable, fun to play and really fun for his age
    • Son has played most of the games in the DS Essentials list
    I got some games listed but some suggestions would be really helpful. Thanks [​IMG]

    umm put that "brain age" game thing for the mom.
    For the kid, get him pokemon or megaman.

    Mario Kart would be good.
    Pokemon (any of them) make nice games for any age.

    Uh, don't get Mega Man. ZX may be easier then the X series, but I foresee a 7 year old having a difficult time beating it.

    Clubhouse games might be difficult for a 7 year old as well. Some of the card games are complicated at first.

    As for actual suggestions, I have none.
    Unless you wanna get SMT: Devil survivor and youtube the kid trying to play it. (he sounds like a rager if he hates to lose, lol)

    Big Brain Academy might be good for both of them. It's simple enough at first, and he could gradually get better and better.
