Video Games That Keep The Family Together

Playing video games with your children is a great way to not only spend quality time with them but also to stimulate their minds and imagination. Many family friendly videogames which are entertaining are available but how do you choose one that suits your needs? It is important to select an age appropriate video game which both you and your kids will enjoy. Here are some fun video game title suggestions from our readers such as Mario and Wii which help moms and dads to keep their family together.

“My grandkids and their grandpa love to play bowling. It’s a game that grandpa has always loved and the kids love to tease him if he doesn’t do well on the video and then con him into taking them ‘real’ bowling to prove he can still really bowl.”
-C, Pueblo, CO

“I like to play the Wii sports with my boys. It’s non-violent and helps they with their coordination.”
-James, Niskayuna, NY

“I think the new Wii Music game is terrific for dads and sons to play together – even if neither has a lot of experience with musical instruments or singing, the game is extremely educational, interactive, and tons of fun to boot.”
-Geoff, Columbus, OH

“Pac Man because it is fun and teaches kids coordination and quick thinking.”
-Larry, Miramar Beach, FL

“Mario Kart. Its fun for all ages so the Dad and son can both enjoy it without getting bored and the Dad won’t feel like he’s playing a child’s game.”
-Kris, Black Mountain, NC

“Guitar Hero is fun playing with the kids. WE always have a blast doing it.”
– Richard, Winston-Salem, NC

“We could spend hours competing in Playstation’s Twisted Metal games. Fighting cars was fun.”
-Ken, Keyport, NJ

“My daughter and I play Candyland on the computer together. She loves it.”
-Robert, Wappingers Falls, NY

“My daughter and I love to play Scooby Doo with her V.Smile gaming system.”
-Mike, Shelby twp, MI

“Me and my dad like playing racing games-Gran Turismo, Need for Speed, Road Rash, etc.”
-C, Sacramento, CA
