I remember the days when my mother, cousin, and I would play games together. Sometimes we’d pass the controller while playing through a single-player game, but more often than not, we’d play multiplayer games for all of us to enjoy without being spectators. When it comes to playing games with your children, I’d recommend multiplayer games over single-player titles, especially in the beginning. It gives you the opportunity to teach your children that it is okay to lose sometimes and that there is fun in just playing, win, lose or draw.
I’ve put together a list of 10 great video games to play with your children. They span a range of genres and gaming generations, and while many are multiplayer, there are a handful of single-player classics thrown in for good measure, too.
