    So many memories playing this with my daughter -- first while she sat on my lap, later with me on my laptop sitting next to her at the table top. We had some amazing times together.

    Even kids are leaving the MMO genre to play something else! Doom I tell you.

    Thank you for posting this article SBFord.

    In the ocean of pure fighting games all around, FPS, Survival games, PvP based MMORPGs and PvE MMORPGs that.. well I dont actually know what incoming PvE games are meant to be these days.

    It is really nice to see a small fragment in the list of games, that has a more cheerful tone.

    The mobile market does not appeal to me and all in all I kind of regret to see so many sweet, cute, cheerful games go in that direction.

    One of the few games I remember playing, that I enjoyed earlier on, were games like Sid Mayer's Pirates. A game like that one were not exclusively for children and parents with young children. Would have liked more games like that.

    I should probably investigate the market a bit more often or try to figure out, where to find cheerful games of the Pirates kind. If they exists.
    And mix these games with ESO.

    But it was really a nice article to see in the ocean of "Must be harder, more challenging and must have more extreme everything" themed games.

    Anyone know a site that shows upcoming cheerful games? Not specifically little kids games, just cheerful games that all ages can enjoy and play?

    When I check out Amazon every now and then, its either Lego games or Hell themed games in all kinds of packages.

    Sad.. the same happened with Toon Town.
    Guess they only want to focus on the mobile version.

    I don't know much about the game but I don't believe we should be teaching children to club penguins or generally club any arctic creatures.  We all know how club baby seal went.

    Try Trove - where else can you have a suhi roll as a mount? ;)

    Trove is the ultimate Kid/Parent co-op game. My daughter and I have wasted many hours in Trove.
