Oh absolutely! Riddick 2 was a “bad” movie that I could get behind. It captured so much of WH40K worldbuilding without actually being one.

Minecraft has been suggested here but there’s also Minete St, free/open source version. The experience isn’t exactly the same but the basics are there. Works with PC and Android. You can also run one of the computers as a host and you can do multiplayer. Absolutely no microtransactions.

Anecdotally, I am writing this comment from a 7-year-old Chromebook. Owing to software updates, it’s not as snappy as it used to be (therein lies the irony), but it’s still usable up to its Linux container.

I just wish, though, I could boot proper Linux off of it and I could upgrade memory and storage.

Try “The High Crusade” by Poul Anderson. According to ISFDB, it was published in Portuguese as “A grande cruzada”. Good clean fun almost with a touch of slapstick. Another one would be “Three Hearts and Three Lions”, also by Anderson. If he likes them, Anderson has a huge body of work that you can get into.

“The Mansions of Space” by John Morressy might speak to your Dad’s religious sensibilities. However, it’s a little known title and I don’t know if it ever came out in Portuguese. It’s epic in scale but meditative to a certain degree of how God works in mysterious ways. Might be a hit or miss with him, depending on his theology.

A recommendation for "Science Fiction and Other Suspect Ruminations" (sciencefictionruminations.com)

The site is a wonderful resource for classic science fiction. Actually the author / historian is more specific about the period he covers, 1945-1985. Posts always have fascinating cover art from books and magazines, making it an invaluable time capsule. i discovered the site via the author’s Mastodon account, wandering.shop/....
