I got a 9yr old who has about 40 games b/t DC, PS, GC and N64. 99% of the time he only plays 2 games, Sonic and Mortal Kombat. I just bought a Wii, and I'm not sure which to get him first. I'm not asking u to compare the games, b/c I do know that one is a fighting game and one adventure. But which do u think he would have more fun playing, considering things like the new controls and if the game play is diff'rnt from the old consoles.
