Kids can’t get enough of video games, so it’s no surprise that mums and dads across the world are stocking up from the entertainment stores in the run-up to December 25th. If you’re on the lookout for games but don’t quite know what to get for your youngsters, you might want to consider some of the following options.
Among older children, FIFA 14 PS4 is likely to prove popular this festive season.
Players appear to think, move and behave like world-class soccer-players and they are watched on by 3D crowds that respond to the action on the pitch.
The game has been created with ten times more animation depth and detail than previous versions.
It’s probably the best and most popular football game on the market, and it certainly looks the part.
Another top game is Pokémon X.
Designed for the Nintendo 3DS, it brings together new Pokémon and past favourites, and showcases them all using detailed 3D graphics.
Players become Pokémon trainers and set off on adventures during which they have the chance to catch, trade and battle. In addition, they can pet, feed and play with their Pokémon to form deeper bonds.
Zoo Tycoon on the Xbox One is also an absorbing yet light-hearted game.
This is one for all the family, so it’s ideal at Christmas time.
A management simulation game, it casts players as zoo owners and enables them to build a park and to populate it with a range of animals.
Kids love this one!
Super Mario 3D World
For a multi-player experience, Super Mario 3D World on the Wii U is hard to beat.
It boasts colorful graphics and all the old Mario stars, including Luigi, Toad and Peach.
You can play the game in groups of up to four, which, depending on ability, could be a help or a hindrance!
One thing is for sure – it’s a lot of fun!
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on Nintendo 3DS is another popular choice.
While in character, players can make use of a selection of tools, including a traditional bow and arrow and a rod that creates miniature tornadoes.
Older kids who are fans of the Zelda series will not be disappointed!
