I'm looking to supplement my son's learning in school with a fun educational games. The reason being that he spends so much time in front of the computer, it would be good to also be learning something during that time. Something that isn't hard core studying but that will help him learn? Have any of you come across games that I could use? I know I can google it but there are far too many to pick from. Do you use any special resources online?
(I found this one website called Jumpstart (http://www.jumpstart.com) that says it's been doing this for 15 years - any reviews?)

I can only recommend light-bot (http://educative-games.org/#programming/light-bot-2) and similar programming games (http://educative-games.org/). Our kids love them.
There is also light-bot for Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lightbot.lightbotlite) and Cargo Bot for iDevices (https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/cargo-bot/id519690804?mt=8).
Thank me later. :)

Is it later now? :D Thank you for these. I might hog up this lightbot game myself for a bit. Again, thanks!

I have been looking at lightbot and jumpstart and found this http://www.schoolofdragons.com game and have been playing it. You need to go through some earth science tasks to go to the next level. It looks good. Would love your feedback though!

I liked starfall.com for learning phonics and alphabet. A great site, but 19.95 a month is time4learning.com My middle daughter loved this site for math.

This looks kind of neat! I actually do enjoy gaming when I have the time. I play and purchase things through Steam. It saves money vs playing on a console.
