That doesn't sound right. Who in their right mind, kid or grown-up, would be forever discouraged from playing a game just because of losing? "Wah! That guy just creamed me so bad, I'm never gonna play Super Smash Bros. again!" It sounds weak and immature to me.

Losing isn't fun, but that's what happens sometimes in gaming. It toughens you up. Keep playing the game and you should get better. You can tone down your difficulty a little, but don't just let the kid win. Let the kid learn.

I don't find it difficult at all, that's because I don't take it easy on anybody. I often play games with my niece and nephew and mostly win, but it doesn't discourage them, because on the occasions they do win, they are proud of themselves for doing it.

Unless in some cases on online (depending on the game) and in some cases with my younger nephew. No I don't take it easy.

you sound as if you're teaching the kids martial arts rather than just playing videogames.

I mean, when I was a child there weren't adults that could beat me at videogames because no adult grew up playing games - thinking about it now, I would have hated to play against my father or uncle and always, constantly lose. Where's the pleasure in playing against somebody that will mathematically destroy you?! It doesn't toughen you up, it just makes you lose interest in the thing.

I was in the EXACT same position as you yesterday...sort of...lol.
I'm 17 and I was trying to play with my cousin who's like 11 or 12... I forget. I went easy on him the first round and let him beat me just so he can get an idea of how to play, and then we played for "real" the next game. He would constantly try to take items that my Pikmin were already carrying instead of focusing on getting items of his own and taking the ones I need to complete my four-in-a-row. He would even purposely try to get my Pikmin to attack him just so he could try to kill them, killing all of his Pikmin along my way, and just having mine respawn. It was a bit annoying trying to get him to try but it just didn't work out in the end, so we just played a different game instead.

Keep in mind he asked ME to play.

It's a fine line between taunting and going easy on someone. Generally people are happier when you are trying your hardest and they get close to beating you than they are if you fake it and they get a slight win. Even with kids, they need to learn how to lose occasionally and most of them will take it pretty well. Just be prepared to spend four hours playing co-op in some kid-friendly shovelware after they get quickly bored of losing at Mario Kart. Or better yet don't do the competitive thing at all, find a co-op mode and play that instead ;)

Dude, if you know Smash, you'd know that there are stuff you don't want to see happening to you, especially against a Captain Falcon. It's not for nothing all-star players actually self-destruct instead of continuing the fight once they're badly taken care of at Smash tournaments.

This is a really good question. I went to my cottage this week, while my cousins came. I brought the Wii U, because they're all some Nintendo fans, interested in the new system. While it isn't much to my 13 year old cousin, and his 9 year old sister, they're 5 year old brother can have temper tantrums when losing to their siblings. Whether its Game and Wario, Nintendo Land, or New Super Mario Bros. U. He will cry, jump, shake and scream when he loses.
But he will come back for more no matter how hard I go on him or his siblings. I prefer to play how you would normally play. Tantrums, and negativity or not, he reminisce on how you two did compete against eachother. And I do feel sooner or later, that nephew will step up his game.

While playing COD it doesn't really matter if I die. As long as I see the name of the player that killed me show up on the death screen after succumbing to my bouncing betty or grenade... I'm happy ;)

It depends on the game. When playing with my four year old son, I definitely hold back some... but if I hold back too much, he kicks my tail — he's pretty good at games for his age — especially Smash Bros. When playing friends, I usually go full force, but try to stay away from using cheap, unfair tactics until they are used to the game. Juggling in Smash Bros, noob tubes in Call of Duty, etc etc.

Oh man your topic reminds me of mario kart wii.. I used to play it with a friend online; We always picked out one victim and drove him/her crazy with red shields, green shields, fake boxes, bananas, hitting them with a star, hiting them when we were big. Good old days. We once hit 1 person 8 times with shields in one single round. :')

Just explain him the goal, he's 10 not mentally challenged, he'll get what you're saying (I think).

Im cocky so no, I don't take easy. I won't say anything but I taunt in fighting games regularly. I will give myself a handicap though so people can beat me, but I'll still try and win. I see it as a challenge for me. My friend knows Im better at Smash Bros than him, but we still have fun. We both suck compared to competitive players anyway.

I'll certainly take it easy in Competitive games, whilst simultaneously matching their own skill set to keep it immersive and interesting for all parties involved.

And in regards to Pikmin "Bingo Battle". I'll consistently kill unwanted enemies and leave them, and point out cherries that are in reach of the other player. Occasionally I may even team up with them to take down a massive enemy. And I have been known to take all my Pikmin along with me when collecting fruit, Making the Macaroon a little easier to steal
