Best Video Games for Young Kids

Posted 02 December 2010 | By | Categories: video games | 8 Comments

   A person I know asked recently which video game would be best for a 4 year old.  If he could only have one game for Christmas, which one would he like the most?  Which one would maximize the spend?  As is always the case, the person who asked that question got a bunch of […]

   New video games are downright expensive.  In fact, they’re so expensive that I never buy new ones.  I wait until they’ve been reduced to $19.99 and are sitting in the used rack.  It’s true that I had to wait a few years to get games like The Orange Box and Call of Duty, but I’m not […]

  Video games are a few things.  They are most definitely entertaining and debatably educational.  They are also a frequent subject of controversy.  Parents clearly recognize the entertainment value of video games.  The debate on their educational nature continues (despite clear evidence supporting the fact that they are, indeed, educational).  One thing nobody expects video games […]
