1. Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World
Denying the cuteness of Yoshi’s Woolly World would be impossible. Never before have we seen Yoshi look so darn cute! And what’s more, the gameplay caters to both the younger crowd and those who frequently play video games. For the younger crowd, they can simply try and make it through each level — and it’s likely they will, as it isn’t a difficult game. In fact, the game uses Poochy Pups as little helpers that jump on spots that will indicate where players should look. But for the older crowd, there are tons of secrets and collectibles to be found in each level, adding another level of gameplay.
It’s basically the same version that was on the Wii U, just ported to 3DS. So if he/she has already played the Wii U version, skip the 3DS version. However, if they haven’t yet played it, the 3DS version is a great on-the-go game — essential for those long car trips you’ll take this summer.
2. Just Dance 2017
Ubisoft’s yearly dance-a-thon game strikes again with Just Dance 2017, a brilliantly-designed dancing game that’s intended to get your kids (and some grown-ups) dancing. The game is filled with great songs found all over the radio waves that your kids will know and love dancing to.
The game will score them on their dancing, and there are three different skill modes available. So, as they become better dancers and learn the moves, the game’s difficulty can change with them.
Some of the songs included are ‘Let Me Love Love You’ by Beiber, ‘Into You’ by Ariana Grande, and ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ by The Weeknd. The game is rated E for everyone, and all songs are censored.
3. LEGO Worlds
Of course, building with LEGOs isn’t anything new, but it still remains just as fun now as it was when you were a kid. Except, now, there are thousands of different types and colors of LEGOs available. Collecting all of those would be quite expensive, but that doesn’t mean you can’t build with most of them, anyway!
Enter LEGO Worlds, which is, in my opinion, the best LEGO video game yet. In LEGO Worlds, players are set in numerous open worlds (and they can travel from world to world) in a massive LEGO playland, with each world having a different ecosystem and tools available for you to build with. You can quest, or you can simply build your own worlds from scratch using the tools provided. The game contains various building tools, LEGOs, playsets, and colors that will bring your child’s imagination into virtual life. Think Minecraft, but with LEGOs and more building options.
4. MLB The Show 17
While the main baseball game contained in MLB The Show 17 is likely too advanced for the younger crowd, this year’s PlayStation 4 exclusive comes with a brand new Arcade mode that strips things down to the most easily digestible parts. This Arcade mode plays like an old RBI Baseball or Triple Play baseball game, where you get a sort of top-down view of the entire field. It’s both competitive and fun, which are two important components in creating video game appeal. It’s much easier to play than the actual game, making it one of the best games for kids of all ages.
If you remember the days of Banjo-Kazooie fondly, this generation’s BK is a new game titled Yooka-Laylee. This game is PERFECT for kids. Not only is it set in an open world that’s large but not too large, it’s also easy and fun to play. On top of that, it’s presented with a colorful palette kids will especially enjoy. Yooka is a lizard and Laylee is his bat friend, and together, they’ll team up to take on some platforming challenges, collect-a-thons, and more great fun.
6. Puyo Puyo Tetris
This isn’t the Tetris game you remember — that’s for sure. But, Puyo Puyo Tetris is a great game, especially for Nintendo Switch owners. It’s a more arcadey version of Tetris, and it can be played with up to 4 players. It combines classic Tetris gameplay with SEGA’s Puyo Puyo to create an incredibly fun, face-pasted competitive game your kids will love. Not only can you play competitive Tetris and competitive Puyo Puyo, but you’re also able to play them both together in unique ways, thanks to the game’s unique fusion of the two in certain modes.
7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the best version of Mario Kart available. It comes loaded with new and returning courses, a revised Battle Mode, and it’s presented in full 1080p HD. It looks and sounds great, and the colorful displays will certainly be appreciated by your kids.
What’s more, there’s an ‘easy mode’ of sorts that basically puts the player on rails, meaning turns and twists aren’t as difficult. It’s a great way to play with kids, and even my four year old is able to play — and LOVES it (seriously, she’s now addicted. Send help!!).
8. Portal Knights
Portal Knights is another multiplatform game that’s great for kids to play, although it’s more appropriate for ages 7 and up, as it does take a little bit of understanding to play. In Portal Knights, players are able to create cutesy and simplistic characters (mage, warrior, or ranger) to adventure with. In their adventures, they’ll traverse different mini-worlds to discover portals to worlds with other resources they’ll use to make better armor, weapons, and stuff to build with. It’s basically like Minecraft but with better structure and a better presentation.
9. Wipeout Omega Collection
How about some high octane racing fun that is simple and fun? Check out the Wipeout Omega Collection on PS4. It is a sort of spaceship/pod racing game that features high speeds. The collection comes with 26 reversible circuits, 46 unique ships to race with, and 9 game modes. What’s more, it allows for local split-screen races offline so he/she is able to race his/her friends on the couch.
Of course, we’d never recommend any of the other fighting games on the market for kids, as they’re too violent, loaded with blood and oversexualized characters. But, this is a Nintendo fighting game, and it’s much more wholesome while still remaining incredibly fun. ARMs is a Nintendo Switch exclusive fighting game that basically plays like the old Punch Out games, but with kid-friendly characters and gameplay. It’s boxing, but with a twist, as players have arms that extend towards their opponents, which makes it feel like you’re throwing your punches.
There’s no blood, no swearing, nor anything else that’s inappropriate for kids, and it’s easily the best fighting game for kids to play in 2017.
