I don't know if you thought about this, but if he likes things like "Farms", maybe consider having him start a REAL garden, if you have a backyard.
Doing things outside instead of simulating them can be an incredibly rewarding experience, and may serve him in the future. As a kid (I'm 32 now),
I did have a computer (386DX FTW) and yeah graphics sucked, but I had fun where I could. I found real fun in Legos, R/C cars (the real hobby ones,
not toys), mechanical toys like Construx, and outdoors. Sometimes even doing woodworking projects, whittling, etc. Sure, you gotta teach them how to
not cut themselves and whatnot but as long as safety is taught early and at every single stage you'll end up with a kid that can do it right, safely.
