    Game suggestions for a disabled person

    Hi!
    I live with a disabled person, he had a severe stroke 2 years ago, lost movement on his right side, lost the ability to speak and has the mentality of a child now.
    He never really bothered with videogames, but yesterday he saw me playing wii sports and wanted to try. It was a bit complex for him so he lost interest quickly.
    Can anyone suggest me games that can played with a single hand without much button pressing (and if they are childish even better)?
    I´m looking for something as basic as the Dora: The Explorer cartoon, where just pointing at the screen in the right place, or doing something very basic, would make the story move along.
    The Wii is the only platform that could really host games for disabled people, but because no money comes out of it, nobody seems interested in making this kind of games... it´s a shame.
    Thank you all!

    Thank you for your answer. The reviews of Mario Party 8 are not good at all, and it still seems a bit complicated (some of the mini games) for him. I need something really dumb-basic.
    Are there any games to use with the camera like the Eye Toy for PS2? Or the wii camera is meant for chatting?

    You don't have to do the mini games so basically u only need to be able to shake the wiimote and then the characters move.

    I will rent it to see if he likes it or not, that way i won´t spend much if he doesnt like it.
    Google showed me that there are Dora the Explorer games for Wii, has anyone seen or played any?
