Can anyone recommend a game for a 9 year old?
My son really wants Goat Simulator, but I have said no as it's a 16 game. Can anyone recommend something simular, or fun that he might like? Thank you in advance.

Hey, I can definitely recommend some great games that younger kids will like:

-Minecraft
A game that is good to play with friends where you can build things essentially.

-Psychonauts
A 3d platformer where the main character travels into and explores peoples minds to save his friends. It's got a great story. It's a little bit aged though. (released in 05)

-Any of the lego games: Lego Batman, Lego LOTR, Lego Indiana Jones, Lego star wars (I'm sure there are more)
Basically they are 3d games where you just go through the story, solving puzzles. It's also a good game that you can play with him, if you wish to.

-Any need for speed game, but I'd imagine that he'd prefer the arcade-ey ones, like Most Wanted, Rivals, Hot Pursuit.
They are racing games.

Also going to add:
Minecraft should hold his attention the longest, especially if he has friends that play it.

Wouldnt drop Goat simulator out of the list actually...
theres modifications and an option on the multiplayer that makes the game fits for children.

Not really... Some kids get incredibly angry when they get destroyed in the game. It's irritating to listen to the raging.

And he's 9. The whole point of the discussion was to find stuff that was rated for younger kids.

Pyschonauts is a wonderful game, and the lego games are amazing. The lego games in particular are made to be replayed, so they will provide a lot of value for your child.



GOAT SIMULATUUR IS THA BESTESTEST, I I FUUN FOR HOLE FAMLY.

Terraria. If he has a PS3 Little Big Planet 1 and 2 are really good for any age (I spent THOUSANDS of hours on it and it was only stopped by me moving and being too lazy to set up the PS3)

Garrys mod is a good game but seriously, no 9 year old child should witness

Goat Simulator has an option to turn off explicit content, if that's what you're worried about. If you have a wii/wii u/ds any nintendo game would be perfect for a 9 year old.
