Interesting that you mention your son playing packman tom. A friend of mine was actually complaining that the modern, hyper graphical, hyper 3D games are so aimed at a particular agegroup, getting young children into playing games, or playing games together with them is damnably difficult due to the fact that very young children of 3-6 don't have such good spacial or visual coordination skills.

apparently her four year old nephew absolutely loves original mario brothers precisely for this reason. No complication, just walk and stomp.

I actually wonder if I'd have got into games at all were I growing up right now, ---- and not just because of the vision angle.

Beware the Grue!
