Goof Troop on an emulator (or maybe a real SNES?) should be a lot of fun, especially in two-player mode.
I can swear by this shit:
We clocked +60 hrs on this and 100% it a few times. There's a bit of English text, but you can get by doing a quick and dirty translation.
Great, absurd humor, in the vein of Gobliiins, completely language independent.
You can also check if the vaccinations took hold and the kid developed the kind of autism necessary to learn programming with The Incredible Machine,
the recent remake is called Contraption Maker.
World of Goo is another classic, language independent puzzle game to check out.
This is basically remade Lost Vikings with purdy 3D graphics. You can do coop and there are physics-based puzzles.
There's also a bit of fighting going on, so check if you're fine with this level of violence.
Either play educational games or puzzle games. Let the kid play games while forcing himself to think and develop the most important skill, more so in this society: think. This is a good game:
Do not let the kid-looking game fool you. It can have some interesting puzzles.
In the end, this is the credited response tho.Keep your kids away from video games, games are nothing but garbage.
Not "at some point"; Trine is possibly the best series you can pick to play with newcomers:Huh, didn't think of these even though I have them. Worth a shot at some point.
that's child abuse and i'm calling spurdo policeMinecraft (Java edition) is awesome for anyone 6 and up. Also teaches them English on the side, as I won't allow to have language changed to their native Finnish. And typing server commands kinda makes them a bit more familiar with using the command line instead of just mousing around.
Thanks for the suggestions. The 5yo in question watched me play Gorogoa last year but she wasn't really drawn into it. I'm going to give it another shot. The other ones seem to be just what I'm looking for, too.From personal experience I can wholeheartedly recommend these games as I played them with my four year old son and he, even after a year, still remembers them fondly and often talks about them...
It's atmospheric exploration game about reviving ancient waterworld.. You control extraterrestrial diver swimming through primeval sea, gathering information about marine life and learning about submerged civilization whose remnants he encounters along the way... In subtle way, without extensive infodumps and through environmental gameplay, it relates itself with Sumerian and Babylonian creation myths. My son is fascinated by water creatures, prehistoric and contemporary, since he grew up watching Jeremy Wade's River monsters (I've been planning to take him fishing with my friends for a while now and to buy him Ultimate Fishing Simulator), so it was really nice to watch as he enthusiastically recognized different species... We took a lot of screenshots also, as the gameworld is gorgeous.
It's a nice, short puzzler more in line with the capabilities of five-year-olds than your examples of The Witness and Talos principle (if I wasn't in a friendly mood I would say you're full of it, but I won't ).. Wholesome, contemplative experience with a picture book visuals, its gimmick is based on rearrangement and manipulation of parts of the images. Modest point and click affair but since it was his first in the genre, I sympathized with his infatuation with it. On several occasions we had to seek help from walkthroughs, but that's because I suck at these types of games...
3. Hidden folks
Hidden object game, with DIY aesthetics... I love the sounds which developers made by themselves. We spent a lot of time on it, and have it installed on my android phone. Even my wife who opposes the notion of raising a child to be a gamür enjoyed it... That's saying a lot, believe me
I can also recommend old Disney platformers, such as Aladdin, The Lion King, and The Jungle Book coupled with watching them off course.. Better than this grooming shit the studio produces today. Happy gaming dad who sacrifices free time to play with his children!
Damn, this was a nice game. Can't think of it fitting for preschoolers but let's keep this in mind for the future. Unfortunately I have no optical drive and I must CD.With my daughter - we both really enjoyed playing "Beyond Good and Evil" which never got too violent or such. And it had a lot of fun moments. A combination adventure, racing, and combat type game - with stealth thrown in as well as item collecting. There is a bit of communication, but there are a few languages to choose from.
Oh man, I have this on WiiWare in my ancient console. Wonder if it still works after a decade of downtime. The game was quite frustrating though, wasn't it? Throw magic bean off-screen --> hope that Blob ate it and turned into a trampoline -> jump down -> fall to your death because Blob didn't, in fact, eat the bean and turn into a trampoline
