Someone at work was asking me about PC games for her 7 year old, and I was shocked to realize that I had no idea what to recommend. Since I really have no mental picture of what 7 is like at this point, I can't really think of what level of game to recommend. Forgetting ratings and content for a minute, what about complexity and gameplay? What can a 7 year these days handle? Would something like Prince of Persia be too complicated? What about UT2004 (or any FPS for that matter)? I'd say something like Warcraft 3 would probably also be way too much for a kid that age to pick up, so really how much more is left? There's a bunch of PC software for really little kids, and a bunch of PC software for teenagers and adults, but what about this group in the middle? Is there nothing out there, or have I just never really noticed or paid attention?
