Finding the best games that suit kids can be challenging. Getting a game that is fun and at the same time, age appropriate is a balance that’s hard to strike. Whether you are looking for a puzzle game, old school or toy to life protagonist games here is a top five list that will deliver.
#1 LEGO Marvels Super Heroes
The game features Marvel superheroes like Thor, Spiderman, Ironman, Hulk, Guardians of the Galaxy, the Fantastic Four and many more. The game is staged in an open world in Manhattan,
where you explore the game as you try to stop the villain Loki and Doctor Doom.
The writing and direction are, by and large, impressive with the big stage names popular to both kids and adults featuring in the deep-dive luring game. The game hosts hundreds of heroes who are all in one way or another linked to the engrossing storyline. The game is kid friendly, somehow mind engaging and as always, the heroes win.
#2 Super Mario Odyssey
Super Mario Odyssey gives an insightful understanding of what makes Mario a legendary franchise. At the moment the game is at neck and neck with its predecessors. The game features inventive mechanics with the most excellently crafted level design and charismatic wit which will have any kid fully mind engaged.
Your key mission is to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser– the twist in between is worth your money. The game is a tad challenging, but don’t get me wrong it’s not difficult it’s just communicated in a good way.
#3 Minecraft story mode
The game takes place in a blocky world which is similar to the game’s predecessors. The game, however, varies from its predecessors in that, it has fully voiced characters whom, as the game progresses, have unique abilities helping them to seek a group of heroes called order of the stone who eventually save the world.
The storyline consists of seeking, solving of basic puzzles to access new abilities and move forward. The aesthetics of the game are the same as the previous Minecraft, but the elements and key points in the story are different. Minecraft alongside a creative story and cast makes the game more lovable than it already is.
#4 Zoo Tycoon
Zoo Tycoon, at its core, is a zoo building and management simulator, but its major stronghold is the fact that kids can observe and interact with animals on a personal level. That right, personal level. The free mode allows you to build a zoo and put in any type of animal you want.
Under all the technical flubs the game is outwardly inspired. Zoo Tycoon has enough referential and quips that could keep the world charming. The graphics and voiced characters are impressive right down to the fuzzy little creature that makes you want to reach out and hold them.
#5 Rock Band 4
Rock band is not only great for kids but also the whole family. Music games such as Rock Band 4 come with the whole set of components such as drums, bass, guitar and more in the set. Sure, the plastic set cannot be compared to the real thing, but the constant musical rhyming and musical timing gets the fingers in shape which is helpful when playing the real thing.
The music selection is extensive with almost every music genre being featured as downloadable content. The chances of finding your favorite song on the game are high. Additionally, you can create your own music store it and share it.
As we reach the end of 2017, buying the right gaming monitor and video games as gift for your kids is important. Kids love games, and with time they will ask for more, therefore, having some kid friendly and age-appropriate games at the back of your mind to surprise them is wise. Tip: there are many games out there specially tailored for kids, so make sure you check the ratings before purchasing any game.
