    I just bought an XBox for my nephew. He's 5 years old and I have no idea about what games would be suitable for him. He loved to play Plants VS Zombies on the computer and I bought that. Unfortunately he hates the Xbox version of the game since it feels much less intuitive than the computer counterpart.
    Suggestions about possible titles ? I don't have Kinect.
    Thanks.

    My kids always liked the Lego games. We have more of these games than I like to admit.

    Star Wars and Indiana Jones were my son's favorites (he's 7). They are nice because if you fall off a ledge or die, you just reappear right where you left off (no going back to a save point or end of game). And of course, Lego figures don't bleed, so theres no gore.

    Some driving games are fun for younger kids as well. Burnout Paradise City is one of my kids favorite. I'm pretty sure they don't even really do the races much, they just drive around the map and smash into stuff.

    My older girls (10 and 12) like Viva Pinata. It's a fun game, but is for slightly older kids (8+ maybe?).
