It has been simultaneously easy and incredible difficult to find such a game.
I could play a racing game, a music game, or a sim, but while I enjoy those games in small doses, I really prefer RPGs or adventure/exploration type games (Bioshock, Skyrim, Uncharted, etc.). It's impossible to find any sort of "hardcore gamer" type game that doesn't involve eviscerating people. I'd really love to play something like Skyrim for the exploration and quest solving aspects, but it's impossible to get through most questions without confronting an adversary face to face. It is actually possible to play through Fallout: New Vegas without ever drawing a weapon, but the language (and the half-naked strippers on the Vegas strip) aren't something my son should experience.
From what I've seen, I'm pretty much limited to Journey and Endless Ocean, both of which I've played to death. Any other ideas?
how about facebooks' Marvel Avengers Alliance? We have an Outhouse Alliance you can be a part of. It's a time killer, but it's free. When you off someone, they just sort of fade out.
Skyrim is incredibly overpriced and overrated imho.
