For the last two years my (now) 6.5 year old has been begging for a Nintendo DS. I've resisted this long but with the holidays around the corner I'm starting to bend. However, as I look at the options I'm torn. I play casual games but have never been a gamer. What should I buy, if anything? [more inside]

Is there a Tiger Woods video game that is considered the hallmark of the series for single player? Is there one that's considered a failure? Or is the newest one always the best one? I'm looking specifically for Xbox 360 or Wii.

My son is 8 years old. I am considering giving him (OK, us) a new gaming console. I don't know which one is best. That's because I am technologically unaware. Which console would you recommend? [more inside]

Which is the best gaming platform (wii, xbox, etc) and software to learn how to dance, yoga, cardio, and strength training? Oh yeah, I also want to run Netflix through it.

My wife went to a party with co-workers, and enjoyed the heck out of a Wii dancing game they played.
If I were to invest in a console, which would have the most fun dancing games for it? [more inside]

My girlfriend -- an avid fan of console games -- was recently diagnosed with carpal tunnel and can't use a PS2 controller for more than a few minute without experiencing debilitating pain in her right arm. Does anyone know of an alternative controller that might free up her right hand? Has anyone used a DDR pad for non-dance related games, for instance? Or, have you tried the access controller
? I'm worried it might just start aggravating her other arm, though... How about other consoles that have such an option? Controllers that essentially work the same way as a standard controller, but are smaller/larger/more ergonomic don't seem to help.

I'm 40ish. I know nothing about modern gaming. I used to love adventure games back in the 80s like Zak McKraken, KGB and Thermonuclear Wargames. I have some time on my hands and want to take the plunge into the modern world of gaming. Where do I start? [more inside]

Now that the dust has started to settle after the first round of the “next-gen” console battle, i think it's time to bite the bullet and decide how my next 2 years of gaming will be spent... X-Box 360, PS3, Wii, or a new PC? [more inside]
