Minecraft is on XBOX Live Arcade now. I'd consider picking that up for her. I've heard they were going to make a disc-release, but I have no idea if it's been done yet.

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.


Best post so far.

I stand by my original statement. Get her The Walking Dead.
Science is interesting, and if you don't agree, you can f*** off.

Parenting, don't tell other people how to do it. If they don't want their 9 year old daughter having sex or casually swearing while playing a game, you have to respect that.
well I am not like your dad. I worked as a chef at TGIF-Mattson

As a 12 yr old (or thereabouts) girl, I saw Mortal Kombat for the first time in an arcade, walked up just in time to see Sub-Zero's spine-ripping fatality. It freaked me out a bit, but main reaction- "COOL!!"

Anyways, not all kids like I was (though I still have pink controllers!), so some safer recommendations-

Minecraft
Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection
The Monkey Island games
Bejeweled 3
Bastion (on No-Sweat mode, anybody can enjoy it)
Viva Pinata - Though in fairness, while very age-appropriate in content, the strategy can be deceptively deep, maybe too much for some children.
Bully - None of the content is THAT bad, some coarse humor and some violence but no killing and sexual content is limited to dating and kissing. It is a pretty easy game, and quite funny at times.

And you think sheltering a child is respectable?

My little girl is 6, I've got her epic mikey 2, sonic transformed racing and dance central 3, all varied games and definitely suitable for a 9 year old. Plus you can co-op with her on them

And you think parenting is a binary job, ether letting them have everything or nothing?

Or do you not know what "shelter" means? lol, child we have a house to shelter us from the outside world, that means you're never allowed to leave the house ever.
