One of my family members want to get my son a 3ds or ds game for Christmas. What are some of the favorites on here. Was thinking about telling them to get pokemon white or black version2, he hasnt played any pokemon games before but think he might like them.
He has all the mario games eg. new mario, mario land 3ds.

Kid Icarus Uprising. Good kid friendly game and the multiplayer is good too.

If he's a big Pokemon fan, Pokemon Rumble Blast is not too bad either honestly. I'm sure you'll get mixed opinions about it, but I had fun with it.

Edit: I misread the OP... I thought you said he was already familiar with Pokemon and a fan.

That being said, I might still suggest Rumble Blast, especially if he does get into the series in general. The game doesn't really involve much reading, which I'm not sure whether or not would be an issue if it did.
It's a secret to everybody.

It also depends on your kid and how much he likes games. When I was that age I already beat a bunch of megaman games and a bunch of final fantasy games.

He's also young enough to where he's still exploring game genres so it's not like you should get your feelings hurt if he gets a few that he doesn't really like. It's all part of the experience up until about 11 or 12 I would say.

Does he like adventure time? If not, show him season 1. Then buy the game.
If the Sega Master System was a speed bump to the NES, the Atari 7800 was a tire-staining squirrel.
