So are your nephews coming to visit with the Xbox or are you trying to find something specifically for your PC? For the Xbox there's:
Midnight Club II (lots of city block driving)
Midtown Madness 3 (lots of city block driving)
The Simpsons: Hit & Run (modeled after gta, so still has lots of violence)
Burnout 3: Takedown (track based racing, but really fast and crazy)
Crazy Taxi: High Roller (tons of city cab driving fun)
For the PC:
Midnight Club II
The Simpsons: Hit & Run
For both systems there are lots of good racing games, but they are track based. For more on either of them you can have a detailed look here: http://www.gamespot.com/user/advsear...lnav_advsearch
I recommend only selecting one year at a time (then pressing the back button to swithc years) and setting the gamespot score to 7. Anything less than a seven could be a stinker.
