Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of the Mario games, also created Pikmin. He has always said the Pikmin were his favorite creations and I have to agree that Pikmin 1 and 2 are my favorites by far. If you watched the webcast of E3 this year, he had Pikmin sitting on peoples shoulders and heads in the audience, or so it showed on the screens! These games can be played by all ages, and have some simple rules and puzzles to solve. My grandsons have played these games since they were 3 or 4, and sooner or later they put down all the new games and come back to Pikmin, and they are now 9 and 11. I have been playing them (yes I am a gamer grandmother) for years and still enjoy them after multiple multiple plays. I highly recommend both Pikmin games for all ages. They have both been re-released for the Wii and translated well from gamecube. Have fun!
