Juegos “avanzados”

Un pequeño listado de juegos que pueden ser interesantes para niños de 9 a 13 años. Una edad difícil: no pueden ser muy infantilones pero tampoco para adolescentes o adultos (como el Call of Duty, el juego de moda):

mac

  • Star Wars- KoTOR, un RPG occidental casi mítico. Contiene un giro argumental (plot twist)  memorable, sin parangón en la historia de los videojuegos (bueno, está Torment, pero este es para adultos). La segunda parte está muy bien, aunque queda claro que la sacaron antes de tiempo (sólo PC, me temo…)
  • Portal, el juego de puzzles 3D sin argumento. Ja ja. Bueno, hay que jugarlo. La segunda parte es también excelente.

So I got stuck in Zelda Skyward Sword. This is actually a bit hard (details below), unless you are stuck in the famous Song of the Hero bug, which is amply covered in the web (with Nintendo offering a channel just to fix it).

Here is a list I have painstakingly collected, of such hybrid games.

Monsieur Michel Ancel

I have tried few games designed by famous designer Michel Ancel: Beyond Good and Evil and Rayman 1 and 2: The great escape (not that he has many more). And I must say, he seems to be one of these designers whose character is imprinted in the final game (like, say, Tim Schafer or Ron Gilbert). His absence is painfully patent in Rayman 3 which completely lacks the innocence and magic of the previous games (I still have to try Rayman Raving Rabbids, but I am afraid the same will apply).
