You mean 3d action games, surely? My computer is chock-full of 'Kid's' games, 
I've never seen so many, quite enough to keep my nine-year old distracted for 
quite some time. However, he does want to know when he'll be able to play 
Tomb Raider & such on my box. My answer for that is that once I get a decent 
video card we'll be able to play something rather more exciting than that 
like UT. At the moment he thinks tdfsb is pretty cool. YMMV I guess :-]
