Computer Game ideas for an 8 year old boy

As above really, I have just reinstalled xp on my friends laptop, and thought I would stick on some games for her 8 year old boy. The problem being is the laptop is quite old, so no really flashy games I'm afraid.

There was a crayola one mentioned on this site a while and I got that for him and he loved that. Just wondering if anyone else knew of any others theirs sons may play. As I say it cannot be too resource heavey. I can provide laptop specs if useful.

Thanks everyone

Yeah I thought about that, but I would rather something I could actually put on the machine. The Crayola game is a must as I play that myself lol. Perhaps an emulater and put Sonic and things like that on for him. Don't get me wrong I'm against children playing computer games all the while, when they could be outside having fun etc. But just for if it's a rainy day etc.

Early Mario games are still great if you are 8, as is sonic the hedgehog

Great I'll get a SNES/NES Emulater and a SEGA megadrive one. Cheers guys
