Family-friendly games have been a popular type of video game for a long time, and they are more popular than ever now. Here are some of the best games to play with your family this holiday season, whether you want to play alone, work together on a mission, or play against each other.
Minecraft is a great game for the whole family to play together. The game puts the player in a world where they have to mine for resources and eventually get to the Nether world to fight the Ender Dragon. The only thing that stops a player from building anything from a house to a complicated ecosystem is his or her own creativity.
This holiday season, one of the best ways to spend time with family is to play Minecraft together and do things like gather resources, build farms, and fight mob bosses. The sandbox game is a great way for people to work together and build a healthy ecosystem.
Rocket League can be simply described as “football with automobiles.” In this game, players don the body of a car and are dropped into a big football field containing a giant football. Players are tasked with making a goal against the other team as the physics are turned up to 11.
Whether it’s 1 against 1, 2 vs. 2, or 3 vs. 3, boosting across the stadium wall and jumping to hit the ball toward the goal is always a good time, but it’s even better when done with or against one’s family during the Christmas season while wearing cozy sweaters. This season, Rocket League is available for free on all platforms so that players can get right in.
It Takes Two
It Takes Two is an award-winning game made by Hazelight Studios. It’s about a couple named Cody and May who are going through a hard time and have to work together when their daughter turns them into dolls. They need to get out of the dream and feel love for each other again.
It’s a great movie to watch with your special someone on a quiet holiday night. This holiday season, players can jump right into It Takes Two on both Xbox Game Pass and EA Play. It can also be bought from all storefronts.
Well, Thanksgiving is over, but that won’t stop a huge turkey dinner from being made. In strange restaurants, players have to gather, chop, and cook ingredients, put them on plates, serve food, and wash dishes.
Cooking with family is always fun, especially around the holidays, whether you do it virtually or in real life. Overcooked 2 brings that rush and excitement without the hassle of cleaning up afterward. The cooking simulator lets teams of up to four players work together to get through the stack of orders. Overcooked 2 can be bought at all of the stores. On the Epic Games Store, it was also given away for free.
In a short amount of time, players of Mario Kart can learn to race at a high level of competitiveness. Each of Mario’s kingdoms serves as a racetrack, and players take control of one of a variety of Mario characters to compete. Mario Kart 8 has a plethora of fan-favorite characters, a vibrant and colorful universe, and chaotic gameplay that is best experienced with friends and family.
It’s more exciting to play with relatives since you never know who might toss a blue shell or a banana peel. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the ultimate family racing game, with tracks like Bowser’s Castle and Rainbow Road. The Nintendo eShop will be selling Mario Kart 8: Deluxe Edition this Christmas season.
The holidays are a time to be happy, and what better way to do that than to spend time with your family playing video games?
Even back when Pong (one of the first video games) first came out, families had a lot of fun playing video games together. Over time, this has changed from split-screen multiplayer in Halo to playing Mario Tennis on the Wii to seeing who can get the highest score in Beat Saber.
These are some of the best video games to play with your family this holiday season. They range from the always-popular Minecraft to the winner of the Game Awards for Best Family-Friendly Game, It Takes Two.
