FAMILY TIME

- Wii Sports Resort. It's wonderful for short group play sessions.

- Mario Party is good for longer family time.

- Wario Ware is supposed to be lots of fun. I've never seen it, but the reputation is good.

- I personally find find Mario Kart and Smash frustrating to play, but again, good group games with great reputations.

- Mario Strikers is a personal favorite, but I've encountered lots of people who feel about it how I feel about Smash. It's surprisingly complicated to play, so lots of people revert to button mashing. edit: On reflection, a 7 year old probably wouldn't enjoy this one unless they were big into soccer.

- If there are bad Lego games, they are elusive. Every one I've played has had good split screen two player co-op, and was cute enough to be fun to watch as well as play.
