Kameo
Viva Pinata
Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie off of XBLA
Beautiful Katamari
Limbo (maybe, depending on her personality and parent's attitudes towards cartoon violence)

A bunch of Kinect stuff like Haunt and Fruit Ninja


No @ Limbo I'm an adult and that game creeped me out!

DLC is a method of corporate profiteering. Will you buy into it?

The Walking Dead.

I'm serious. That game gets you to critically think. Think about how well you and you're family are. In other words, it will make your daughter care about her family.

I agree that it's not a good game for kids, for multiple reasons. And as a parent, if you need to use a game to make your daughter care about her family, you've already failed. Maybe in a few years TWD will be appropriate.

Topics like this always surprise me. As a child my parents never took steps to shield me from most forms of mature content, nor did they with my younger brother. Growing up most of my friends played M rated games and watch R rated movies long before the suggested age too. Yet, on a gaming forum, that I would think would bring in a younger and less strict demographic, the prevailing opinion always seems to be that kids should only experience PG content.

What would I get a 9 year old? Good games. Halo, Mass Effect, Lego games, Nuts & Bolts, or even better the stuff that you enjoy as well.
