Entertaining our children nowadays is quite easy, maybe too easy. We tend to let them watch too much television and play too much electronic games but I think that not all TV programs and games are that bad.
Although my son has a PlayStation 2 and we are able to control the games he buys and plays, he prefers to Play Games Online and this scare me a bit. We all know that on the big WWW things can get out of control and children might access some dangerous/not appropriate for age sites. My son likes to play games with high volume so I always know what he is playing.
He has a favorite site that is Gamerevolt.com and here he has a wide variety of online games. This site is very easy to use and although English is not his mother language he gets around really well.
He clicks in Play Arcade Games and he gets a list of all the games available for this category. His favorites here are: Dragon Fist 2, Jungle Master and Mars Fighter. Of course everyday he finds new and attractive games and his priorities are always changing.
He’s quite a fan of sports games (although he’s not very sporty) so, when he wants to get sporty online he just presses Play Sports Games and there he goes. Here it’s difficult for him to choose the favorites because he likes to play several sports but I noticed that he has preference for: Bowling Master, Wakeboarding XS and Flash Golf.
Once he is a very active boy, these games make him quiet for a while. I guess he just wastes some energy playing them and he can even concentrate himself (something really difficult for him to do) on the more tactical and strategic games where concentration and memory is needed.
