@ lyterae- I just checked out Killing Floor.. I've always loved survival horror (X- Resident Evil player), but find in my old age (at 34 lol) they are waay too intense for me! I jump out of my skin at every turn lol. I will always have a soft spot for that genre though!
@ lilempress- You guys sound hard-core! Table top games with figurines and such, right? Cool that you guys even made up your own. I checked out Defiance- I LOVE open-ended games like that. I often ignore the main story arc for months at a time while I just go off exploring and doing my own thing! I've heard lots of good things about Minecraft for little ones too! Sounds like a great place to start with your daughter!
@bmcneal- I too LOVE, LOVE, LOVE board games. I am very shamelessly grooming my boys to become my gaming buddies! I have visions of us doing nothing else for days except playing games, drinking cocoa, eating popcorn. Makes me warm and fuzzy inside to think about! My daughter (13) doesn't care for them much... I have to bribe her to play with me lol. My 6yo boy LOVES them, but he is still a little young yet.. He is still very limited. My 5yo is so not there yet lol. But I still try to encourage him to play certain games- just to teach him the basics of taking turns, basic gameplay (rolling dice, counting spaces, etc) and losing graciously. Rare if he can sit through one game of checkers though!
@ k x s- mechwarrior sounds really interesting! I just read through the gameplay.. might have to investigate that one further! One of my gamer-girl friends was really into halo too for a long while! I never played it (didn't want to drop the money for an X-box for just one game), but it did look fun!
Thinking about trying WOW again, just to get used to gaming on a PC again before Elder Scrolls comes out! I don't have much experience with PC gaming- I'm always the character on screen running into walls or getting hacked to death while spinning in circles trying to draw my weapon lol.
