The Tony Hawk games are cool, but I don't know if girls like them.

I'm 17 and I thought the Spongebob game was kinda fun :)

Voodoo Vince and Grabbed by the Ghoulies are not bad choices either.

You can always get Barbie's Horse Adventures (http://ebgames.com/ebx/product/234709.asp) - I know a bunch of members here frequent that game, especially Duke :)

Defenitly Go with Fuzion Frenzy......Must!

i'd say get the grand theft auto double pack, deathrow, halo and dead to rights would be great for any 11 year old girl

Like a few have said already on here, Fusion Frenzy. I got this game for my 12 yr old niece and she loves it. You can play with upto 4 players in a game too so you could definately play together.

Prince of Persia
Fuzion Frenzy

My daughter and me have a ball playing Mad Dash Racing.

I have tried quite a few games in order to get my 5 yr old games we can both play co-operatively.

Games I'd reccomend would be:

1. Halo(lots of fun together, it may be violent in that you're shooting aliens but it's not gruesome or bloody or anything like that)

2. Midway arcade treasures. (It only lists 4 multiplayer games on the box, but there are really more like 10-15 when you go to the option screen and select number of players)

3. Gauntlet.

4. Baldur's Gate 1 and 2.

5. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.

Those are the best for co-op play.

Sonic Heroes, Pacman World 2, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger and Voodoo Vince would be great single player Mario type games.

My fav's were Halo and Midway Arcade Treasures.

Fusion Frenzy
Blinx The Time Sweeper
Mad Dash Racing
Spongebob Squarepants (I actually heard its really good)
Fairly Oddparents: Breakin' Da Rules
Pacman World 2
Prince of Persia? (T rated, but really not that violent, but might be too challenging for an 11 year old, a fantastic game you should try)
Crazy Taxi 3: High Roller (I think younger people love this game)

:games to stay far away from:
Everything I have :D (look at my collection right under this post)
all of my games are probably WAY too violent for an 11 year old girl, well 11 year old period. So I might be very shy of most of them, if not all. The Tony Hawk (mild language mostly in music, but you can have custom soundtrack, you know put some of her music on it) games, and NFL Fever might be ok, and PGR2 if she likes racing (again language). And maybe NBA Street if she likes basketball.
But for your interest, my games might fit your needs :D

I can't believe that no one recommended Beyond Good & Evil.
I think that that would be a great one.
Not only does my little brother, 9, love it, but my girlfriend loves it. I kinda' like it too. Just don't tell my HALO buddies, you know?

02-18-2004, 01:59 PM
Transworld Surf or one of the Tony Hawk games.
