I have been making list of “best video games for several years now. I usually divide them up by age and gender. I by no means mean to stereotype however I do find that the game that appeal to boys are slightly different than boys. Girls tend to like creatively and nurturing games and boys seem to be drawn to video games that have quests and challenges to over come. I am constantly talking with other kids to find out what games they are playing- what works and what doesn’t.
Below is my list of “Best Nintendo DS Games for Boys Age 4-8″ hope you find it helpful!
