@exalm @KekunPlazas my kids have fallen in love with Gnome Games. I have never really been much of a gamer. Can you recommend any games we could try (suitable for a 5 and 6 yr old)?

@dubstar_04 @exalm Sure, here are a few that should run on most mahcines. I'd recommend you try them first to see if they are fit for your children, and to only present 2-3 games at a time so they don't feel overwhelmed.

- Mega Man X (action platformer)
- Super Bomberman 5 (party game)
- Super Mario World (platformer)
- The Legend of Zelda, A Link to the Past (action adventure)

@dubstar_04 @exalm

Mega Drive/Genesis:
- Micro Machines 2: Turbo Tournament (racing party game)
- Puyo Puyo 2 (puzzle party game)
- Ristar (platformer)
- Rocket Knight Adventure (action platformer)
- Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (platformer)

@dubstar_04 @exalm

Game Boy Advance:
- Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land (platformer)
- Mario vs. Donkey Kong (platformer)
- Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire (creature colecting, adventure)
- The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (action adventure)


In 2 years:
- Advance Wars (GBA, turn-based strategy)
- Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (GBA, adction adventure)
- Golden Sun (GBA, J-RPG)
- Metroid Zero Mission (GBA, action adventure)
- Pikmin (Game Cube, exploration)
- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64, action adventure)
- Secret of Mana (SNES, action adventure)
- Streets of Rage II (Mega Drive, beat them up)
- Super Metroid (SNES, action adventure)
- Super Smash Bros. (N64, party fighting game)

@dubstar_04 @exalm @KekunPlazas In general or on Linux? You can throw some educational stuff on there like gcompris or eduActiv8. The Tux games (kart, paint, etc.) Indie games like World of Goo and Bloom might be a good distraction too
