    Mario games (part/kart/bros.),Zelda and Pokemon are good.And Starfy when it comes out. And Kirby games.

    And does he read manga? If he does Jump ultimate stars with the translation patch will be good

    If he has a working ds then Zubo is pretty fun. Although it has to be working meaning touch screen and microphone cause my mic is broken so I can't get past this part where u have to wake this girl up lol.

    In that age group I'd imagine that anything out of Nintendo 1st party that's a 'mascot' title like a Mario, Kirby, Pokemon, or Starfy out in June would be fantastic. That said, is this 10 year old an anime fan? There are some great Naruto games that would fit the bill, but then again most the anime titles would be fit for that group except perhaps Bleach.

    Summon Nights: Twin Age is good. Also give him Big Bang Mini, Puggle: Duel Shot, Mario Kart DS.

    Pretty much any game that involves some weird form of perversion. By the mid teen years, it starts to lose its novelty.

    Super Robot Taisen...

    Seriously, though:

    For a 10 year old I'd definitely go with:

    Zubo
    Super Mario Bros
    Danny Phantom: Urban Jungle
    Avatar Into The Inferno
    Kung Fu Panda
    Tak Mojo Mistake
    Spongebob Squarepants Drawn To Life
    Transformers: Animated Series - The Game
    Speed Racer
    Sonic Rush 1 & 2
    Spectrobes
    Spongebob Squarepants: The Yellow Avenger
    Star Wars The Clone Wars - Jedi Alliance
    Super Mario 64
    Justice League Heroes
    Pokemon Platinum (easier than putting both Pearl and Diamond on his card)
    Diddy Kong Racing

    Yes, I know my list is license heavy, but didn't we mostly play those kind of games as a youth. I couldn't tell you how many crap games based on the Simpsons I used to own, but at least these are all higher quality than more shovelware.

    no no no, u don give a kid chocobo tales, that game is tough... a 10 year old would probably enjoy drawn to life more than a frustrating game like chocobo tales...

    I think ten year olds need hard games. When I was ten, I was all into it and would do anything to beat a game. Get a little older and it's like "Who cares; it's just a game."

    Drawn to Life.... so they can have a thing for "creative" scribbling, yes that is fun. If he likes spongebob.... probably the spongebob version of Drawn to Life too. 5th cell games..... Drawn to Life, Lock's Quest and the TBA Scribblenauts,they are all great games. Oh and did anyone mention Proffesor Layton?

    Still i recommend Nintendo games more....

    Rocket Slime is wacky and has Zelda-esque adventure aspects(although not as good) and the Tank Battles were great fun the mix matching of ammo was nice and throwing yourself or team-mates out the cannon was great ..... Plus you can collect monsters. But of course not everyone appreciates it.

    I would recommend both Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles (Rings of Fate and Echoes of Time)

    it's not the traditional turn-based ff game, it's more of an action-RPG type where you just slash every monster you see lol.

    my 9yr old brother loves both of them so I figured I should recommend them

    plus, (assuming you have a DS as well) you could play with him co-op [​IMG]
