If videogames are to be in the family, make sure every family member has a DS and play Dragon Quest IX together and talk about the content.

Big big story in which the character, or hero,'s only objective is being nice to others to improve the states of the game's setting. The scope of the game means this morality can be disected into the smallest details of kindness the material of story-based video game code is able to translate.

My sons have been begging for this game, but I can 100% tell it's not for them. There's a woman's belly button on the cover! I'm trying to get their mind back to the Dora PC games, but all they talk about is "I WANT DRAGON QUEST MOMMY." It must be that evil school I send them to!
