I am not sure this is the right forum to ask this but here goes:

What age is a good starting age to play FM. I have a eight year old and i think its a bit too young for him to start playing but playing fm may make him more interested in actually playing the game for real also.
I think I started playing(with help from my cousin) when I was 11 so FM2005 but the first FM which I played on my own was 2007.Which means I was 12 I think because I got it on Xmas.
I started playing around 2003 i think, was champ manager 02/03 if I remember rightly. I think it might be a bit complicated for and 8 year old to play haha
i remember when i was around 8-10 when i came across manager game for the first time i didn't really get the hang of things. but when i was 11-12 i started to learn with CM 01-02. but i was still learning football, i always loved football and always played football. but it was when i was 13-14 i really started to get into CM. then when FM 05 came out i was just hooked forever.

imo FIFA and PES is good for kids, but as they start to get slightly older you can start introducing them to FM :)
I remember I got my first management game when I was about 9 or 10, Championship manager 2 96/97. It was an amazing game for its time and spent years playing that one game, I can still remember entire starting squads from 15 years ago

I think 8-11 is ok to start with Football manager, if he doesn't get into now just try again when he's a bit older
Good idea Evo mate my lad can use pc's good and ye i like the idea of getting him into a game like fifa or pes. Ill see what he thinks next weekend thanks guys.
I remember when I was 10 and I was crazy about Champions League 2004/05 well I still like the game because I thought it was a challenge to win in that game.
I can't remember at what age i started playing fm at(wel it would have been CM then.)I remember when they had a voice commenty you could hear think it was john motson.
Why not sack your assistant manager and replace him with your kid!

I would say it is good idea.
