There are many things to see, from concerts to barbecues. They all happen randomly at different times. This game is good for kids aged 7+ - FluffyBanana

6 Minecraft Story Mode

This is an awesome game for kids. I got it for my B-Day, and my parents got breakfast in bed from me for days. I mean, a story about a group of awesome heroes that defeated a massive, living wither storm (look at what's behind them, bruh), a bully turned madman with spawn eggs (from the Eversource) that was about to destroy a city in the sky, saving numerous Youtubers (without Skydoesmnecraft, thank you, Telltale Games) from a pumpkin assasin (well, it's (don't wanna spoil it for ya) a person, but uses a pumpkin as a mask), destroyed a super-computer with the ability to mind-control people (PAMA), and surviving numerous games, such as the Walls (like hunger games, but with less supplies and people are separated by walls until time's up), Spleef,and the Lava Race, while defeating a group of Old Builders that are practical psychopaths, and are on their way to defeat a giant statue that can move and wants to kill Jesse, the protagonist, because he/she stole his gauntlet? That got me ...more

7 Rocket League

Rocket League is an amazing game. If your kid loves cars or sports, I definitely recommend this. I have played this game for hundreds of hours because it's so fun and unique. This game is soccer, but with cars! There are many tricks you have to master such as aerials, dashes, wall shots, and a lot more. This makes Rocket League quite challenging, but your kid will love it. They will never get bored because there's always something new to master. There are a variety of game modes including Duel, Doubles, Standard, Chaos, Snow Day, Rocket Labs, Hoops, and Rumble. Some of the game modes feature different sports, such as basketball and hockey. There is also a Ranked system, where your kid gets ranked depending on how good they play. This will encourage them to get better at the game. This game will teach your kid about teamwork, just like most sports. They have to cooperate with other players in order to win. You can also customize your car. There are a variety of different cars, colors, ...more
