Many moons ago I bought Civilization Revolution for the PS3 and have been playing it quite a bit ever since. But always single player, i.e. versus the AI. I've gotten fairly good, where I win the majority of the time against the highest difficulty level. But I've avoided the online multiplayer for a couple of reasons - can't save (so have to dedicate time), and there are quite a few very good players out there.
Well, this weekend I played my first online game and got spanked. Yes, at the beginning it looked promising; but though I was expanding nicely I was falling behind in tech. So I started to question why I was playing Civ. Yes, I probably could get better at multiplayer - but it would take a lot of time, time I wasn't willing to invest.
I realized I was playing CivRev because it satisfied two criteria: 1. it was wife acceptable and 2. it wasn't a game my son was interested in. So although I have other games I could play, my son also plays them and I don't want to get ahead of him. (He tends to watch and I don't want to spoil any surprises.)
SO I'm looking for suggestions for PS3 or Wii games to play. Criteria:
1. In general, most M rated games (especially FPS) are out as they aren't wife acceptable.
2. Offline single player - I simply don't have the time to invest for an online game.
3. Not something a 10 year old would be interested in playing.
