    I thought I would start this thread as I can't find anyone discussing games for children.

    I love the Essential Games thread and find it very beneficial in determining which games to try out first. However for the younger ones in the family that can't plany strategy/FPS etc it would be nice to now a top 10 list for these young ones.

    To start off, Wii Sports is obviously an all ages favourite, and the children love it, but what else? Also games for Girls/Boys. If anyone feels like posting what they see children playing can you also submit age and sex?


    Prefer Wii Games Only.

    This is what I have so far. As I find more I will try and rate them.

    Wii Sports
    Chicken Shoot - Girl
    Mario Galaxy
    Warioware Smooth Moves
    Wii play
    Carnival Games
    Zack and Wiki - Boy
    Marble Mania 8+
    Brawl 8+
    Nights: Journey into Dreams 10+

    when small children come to my house to play wii (some cousins and my small brother's friends) they usually play:

    wii sports
    warioware smooth moves
    wii play
    carnival games

    sometimes they just check out my games folder, and try most of the games there (I got kids games for my small brother whos 4). They dont like games i got specially for them, like shrek, meet the robinsons, ratatouille, and every other games based on a kids movie.

    I also got cosmic familly for him, but he finds it quite boring [​IMG]

    i have two children aged 6 and 4....they have access to pretty much any game they want (not a believer in violent games causing violence, kids are smarter than that) but anyways the games they play the most and actually get into are:

    kirby's air ride
    smash melee
    mario party 5,6,7,8
    paper mario / super paper mario
    shrek wii and shrek racing gc
    mario kart DD
    flushed away
    dora the explorer journey to the purple planet
    mario galaxy
    ben 10 protector of earth

    i have noticed that there's a correlation with pure-kiddy games and mediocre quality too, like many of the kid-specific titles seem like bargain-bin titles, jmo

    have fun
