I have always lurked around. But will more than likely be here a bit more as I just upgraded the PS2 to a PS3 so the lad could play IL2. Just got it all set up this afternoon and got a joystick for him so he could look like me when he plays. I have a full on setup on the PC for IL2 and he wanted the same. Have been watching my 7YO get into the game. I will do a review once I get the chance to play it. It will be interesting to compare between the two versions. So if anyone can give me some suggestions as to good games for a lad (as well as for his old man) it would be welcomed. For him violence is a no no. We also have an old PS2 compatible FF steering wheel (USB) that I am hoping will work with the PS3. Cheers, Ulric.
