What first person shooter is appropriate for a 10 year old?
First, I am an old, old man that played LP Muds at an addictive level in college.
My 10 year old son has been playing Minecraft and Portal 1 & 2 for a while, and has been getting into PvP servers, which honestly can be a bit over the top sometimes.
He now has an interest in the blood gore, zombie killing mayhem of all those great shooter games out there. I am hesitant to just Steam download Call of Duty Modern Warfare and let him loose. Not only because I think they are not age appropriate for a 10 year old, but my wife would completely and totally freak out.
Rather than tell him: "You have to be a bazillion years old, out of the house and not talking to me as much as you used to before you can play those type of games", is there an appropriate game that I can get for him to enjoy the fun but not have all the mindless gore and vulgarity?
Or what are the good first-person adventure games for kids out there? Between work and work, I haven't really been keeping up.
