Thinking about getting a 3DS for my 5 year old.
Dad's a gamer - but he really hasn't shown much interest in it (until recently). I bought him Disney Universe on our PS3 about 6-8 months ago, but he had trouble understanding how the controller moves the dude on screen, etc. - he would start to get it, then get bored and want to do something else.
Recently, he seems to be getting into watching me play MoP - so I'm not sure if he's getting into gaming or not.
I'm thinking he's going to treat this like he did Star Wars - about a year ago, I tried to get him into Star Wars, and he did not like it at all. Then, all of the sudden, he was Dath Maulin' himself all over the place, wanted to be Vader for Halloween, asking me detailed questions about why Luke is good, why Annakin turned bad, etc., etc.
So - he might be ready for a 3DS. Then again, he may toss it aside.
Any experience out there with the 3DS and kids around 4-5?
