Video games. Once thought to be the past time of slackers and unmotivated adults, video games have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years. The advent of consoles like PS4 and Xbox 360 have elevated games to an entirely different, immersive level. They’ve also allowed the experience of games to become a social one, and it’s a great way to spend a quiet afternoon with your kids. Take a look with Payflex at our top 7 picks for the best video games to play with your kids.
PS4 Video Games
1. Aliens: Fireteam Elite
Even if you haven’t seen the iconic movies, you’re sure to recognise the familiar, terrifying shape of the Xenomorph and sure to have a wild ride playing Aliens! Create your own battle team, select your weapons and prepare to meet your destiny in the ultimate game of survival, where humans are no longer at the top of the food chain. Good luck!
2. Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance Day One Edition
Dungeons & Dragons is a classic epic fantasy game, enriched even more by video game format. Frost giants and powerful dragons roam as dark armies are gathering for war. Four friends must put their skills and abilities to the test and prevent the world of Icewind Dale from being eclipsed by total darkness.
3. Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid
For slightly younger kids, Power Rangers is a family-friendly game that will still keep them engaged and entertained. Choose your favourite rangers and battle familiar foes against the backdrop of Angel Grove town.
4. Spirit: Lucky’s Big Adventure
