PC Game recommendation for 6-year-old

Does anyone have a recommendation for PC games for a 6-year-old?

She is very interested in the idea of The Sims, but that is well beyond both her level of skill and parentally approved content for her age. She pretty much no experience with PC/video games and I assume she would prefer a less structured game where she can go about it at her own pace.

Minecraft would be a good choice probably.

my twins are 6. they play Minecraft, almost entirely in creative mode, but recently they've been addicted to Stardew Valley. They play it on the switch, but the PC version is very good.

There is zero pressure to "play well", and the only consequence of not utilizing your time wisely is that it'll take more days.

there is a romance subplot, but that can be ignored...and if not, it's pretty harmless.

I would suggest the Lego Star Wars games. The later ones start to get too complicated for what they are (the hub world in the Lego Jurassic Park game is stupidly disorienting, Lego Avengers' backgrounds are too busy and confusing, and Lego Harry Potter has too many spells that do too many things, plus it's buggy as all hell on PC), whereas Lego Star Wars 1 & 2 are in the sweet spot when it comes to different abilities for characters, difficulty level, and having a reasonable number of collectibles.

Lego batman is good to....I think Lego Batman 2 might be ok. Lego Indiana Jones may be dated, but it was fun when my girls were littles.

Marvel Super Heroes and MSH2 are a hot mess on the hubs - Many times it was very unclear where to travel on the city/world map to start the next story bit. The LOTR one is a bit sprawly as well.

What Sebastian said. The Lego Star Wars games are great and a good recommendation, but they have a couple of spots where you have to build something under heavy fire from storm troopers or close off their spawning points, those can be quite stressful...luckily it's 2-player.

Oh yeah, there's a part in one of the prequel levels (Kashykk?) where battle droids spawn endlessly unless you take out the battle droids with red torsos and walkie-talkies who keep calling them in. It took me an embarrassingly long time to discover you could stop the spawns in that section...

Good call on the Lego Batman games. Some of the platforming (Batman's gliding mode, some of the remote control car stuff with Robin, Robin's magnet-foot suit) might be frustrating for a six year-old, and I would plan on being available to pop in once in a while to get them past some of the harder bits.

It might be 15 years ago when my daughters were 6-8 but during snow days and Christmas break my whole family had a blast with Freddie the Fish. It's savager hunt adventure game. Challenging but winnable and fun. It's on steam.
