Default co-op game for 8 year old kid

Want to play a fun non violent co-op game with my 8 year old kid, any recommendations?

- No excessive shooting/gore, nothing like counter strike. Wife doesn;t even want him playing Titan's Quest yet...
- We play sports games on xbox so don't need sports titles

Any co-op space fighting type games, or maybe tank fighting, or problem solving or puzzles?

Thanks,

Vanz

I can't really think of anything on pc...if it's on a console I can ask my kids what they have.

I let my 7 and 9 year old daughters play Left 4 Dead 2, lol...my Shelby she gets pissed when she's on a bad team, and either vote kick bad players or leaves calling them scrubs, yup she is definitely my child.

I echo MowTin. The Lego games are great for family co-op.

Portal 2 should be great. No blood, no gore, no killing, and its a puzzle game. It'll be good to let a kid play such games to develop their brain cells.

I think portal my be a bit too much for an 8 year old, and what's the point of buying it for their participation if you have to do everything. That game would be an awesome 10+ age game imo.

Hat’s off. Well done, as we know that “hard work always pays off”, after a long struggle with sincere effort it’s done.

Buy a PS3 and get Little Big Planet and Little Big Planet 2. All the co-op you will ever need with no violence. It's great fun for adults too.
