  1. Never thought of a video game as a gift for a youngster, but it does seem like a good idea. It’s so often hard to get something that they’ll use and enjoy. Easy to buy this way, too.

  2. This is great! Finally some games that are appropriate for kids who are younger. I know many people who wouldn’t want their kids playing some of those violent video games. This would make a really great gift!
