I bought Nintendo Game Cube for my husband one year for Christmas. Our family has had so much fun playing it these past few years. I have noticed though that my husband and seven year old son have had a lot of bonding time with the Game Cube. I have observed the enjoyment that they get from this game system many times. There are a wide variety of games available including many E-rated (Everyone) games which is what we allow our son to play. He likes Monkey Ball and all of the Mario games. Occasionally we will allow him to play a T-rated (Teen) game if it is not filled with killing and violence. My husband also has several games that he just enjoys that are for adults. Our family loves the Donkey Konga game which comes with drums that plug in and you play - Fantastic! We also like the Mad Catz Dance Pad that you plug in and dance on - this is so much fun! There are also wireless controllers available for this system. These are great and no wires to tangle. Nintendo Game Cube is a good game system for the entire family to enjoy!
