Xbox games .. can you recommend?

Postby Sunnygirl on Fri Oct 09, 2015 9:01 am

Wondering what is recommended for xbox one. Ds has just turned 13, but also younger sibling in house so would like some stuff they can both play too.

He said a friend has call of duty and halo and he wants them too... but I am not wanting first person shooter games at this point...and not liking the online play either.

DD likes all the dancing games, like Dance Central and Just Dance! For family play: anything LEGO, car racing games, sports games (I like Rival Sports) and Rayman.

12 year old DS plays Halo and Destiny but we wouldn't let him get Call of Duty as it is rated 18+. The other ones are rated Teen.

Also, some games require you to have XBOX Live, not just for online play but just to save your game.

Hope that helps! :D

Halo and Destiny are ok in our household because it's humans shooting THINGS/ALIENS rather than other humans.

Any of the LEGO games (Batman, Jurassic World, Marvel, etc.) are surprisingly fun, even for adults ;)

Minecraft is a no-brainer, as in good!

Forza is fun driving game.

Tomb Raider is *awesome* but maybe not for your younger one due to language and violence.

Our 11 year old loves the sports games like NHL and FIFA.

Thanks!

We have decided to hold off a bit longer on halo or destiny. Somethibg we can give in on later lol. Today he chose a motorcycle racing game... trials fusion I think it was... and the forza car racing came came with it.

He was with a friend and I think didn't want to look at the lego games with a peer there lol.

He showed a lot of interest in need for speed (which dh used to love on the computer) and a farm simulator. He generally loves similator games, but wondering whether it would be too tame for the xbox lol.

Disney Infinity are a big hit in our house. They love the toybox to make their own games. It is a bit more expensive but worth it. Lego games are awesome too. I played all of them myself. We have a PS3 but these are both cross platform.
Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected.
