try some of the downloadable games. If you need a disc game you can start with whatever movie she likes.. Cars, Madagascar etc. But the DLC stuff you'll have better luck with. Let me check my trophy list see if i can give titles..

Disney Sing It Hits – for sure
Okabu – so far it's pretty simple and fun
4 Elements - gets too fast and complex towards the end but on that note Bejewelled, Peggle, and mAYBE Plants vs Zombies should work. PvZ gets a bit hard/fast towards the ends.
Pacman CE DX – definitely. very nice learning curve on that you can have fun for a long time and be terrible at that game.
Rag Doll Kung Fu – not a good game at all but the controls are fun to play with and for a child I think they could easily have fun making the ragdolls fight in this game.
Hoard – could work if they were playing with other 5 yos. Solo I don't see it happening. I know far too many five year olds who are sore losers.
Super Stardust HD – i don't get this game. i must be playing it wrong cause it's not hard. that said with a bit of practice i think a five year old could do well on it.
Burnout Paradise – FOR SURE, fantastic game that doesn't need to be frustrating. dick around by yourself… or if they want to "race" you can call up a race right then and there.. plus crash mode.
Worm 2
Fat Princess – if they're immature. that game is terrible to play single player; mind numbing and online it's going to be too hardcore for a kid most of the time. or too frustrating. but if they're immature and don't really know what's going on they'll have fun killing people and stuffing the princess
PixelJunk – they're playable but they might be too cerebral.. maybe not.. I like Eden best. They might like Shooter. Monsters is bloody hard. cute.. but hard.
Sonic's Genesis Collection – full of games for kids to play
Ratchet and Clank - might be fun
Lego [Insert Name here] - easy choice. and for a five year old it's a no brainer.

Again we'd need more information...first off disc or dlc or both? for her to play by herself or with friends? with adult friends or kid friends. Plus as much other information as possible.. short sessions? long sessions? any genre preferences: action vs thinking. You mentioned a girl but my selection was gender non-specific. Although I don't expect any five year old girl to be into cars the burnout games are still fun to play. You have to obviously assess her a bit. Are you looking for girly games. I know a lot of girly DS games but i don't know any for PS3 outside of more Singing games.

the true question is, is the child capable of actually playing video games? Seriously, my 5 years old cousin sucks so bad at playing it just makes me furious when I have to "play" with him. I prefer doing something not video-game related. I also think it's better for the kid.

@Pedro: That's because you didn't introduce your cousin to gaming at an early age! My sister completed Super Mario Bros when she was 4. She's now 12 and playing Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Kirby and Zelda, to name a few.

i agree with Pedro "playing video games" for a 5yo today is different. it's different vs playing for "older kids/adults" and it's different from when we were five.

In the 8 bit age games were simple. you could play Super Mario Bros. it's a simple game, there are only two buttons and it's VERY responsive. Nowadays games are too complex for kids even the most simple ones. I love SMGalaxy but I couldn't give that to a kindergartener and expect anything interesting to happen and that's a VERY forgiving game in some parts death/fail wise.

Nowadays a young kid playing games is different from an adult. Take for instance the whole LBP choice. For a bigger kid the game works because the platforming is simple and forgiving. For the smaller kids they're more apt to dick around. I did once show LBP to a young girl and she would never have finished the first level if I hadn't told her where to go, but she was content to run around and grab things. A good game for young kids will have a degree of fun that doesn't require progress. That's where Pac-Man works. it's fun even if you never get past that first board.
