Family-Friendly Video Games

Have fun. Game together. 

“Gaming together is a great way to spend time with kids of any age. It lets you step into their world and do something that they enjoy.” – Pixelkin

Working Gaming Time into Family Time Can Bring Families Closer

The idea of a family game night has been around for a long time. But this tradition doesn’t need to be restricted to board games. Video games have evolved to include some great games for families to play together. With 97 percent of kids in the U.S. playing video games, family game night is changing to incorporate family-friendly video games in the mix. 

If you’re worried, don’t be. Lots of modern games don’t require a controller with a gazillion buttons. Many family games only require you to press a couple of buttons. Some don’t even require a controller at all. This new wave of motion gaming has some of the best family games available. They provide a great new twist on family game night that gives you the ability to connect with your kids.

  • recommendations for great family games
  • the opportunity to connect with your kids

Connect With Your Kids

Video games are much like any other hobby or interest your kids have. By taking the time to learn about and talk about the games your kids play, you’ll be showing them that you care about the things they enjoy. At Pixelkin, we believe that games have the power to strengthen relationships by bringing kids and parents together.

Sift Through All the Confusing Information

Video games are often a polarizing subject for parents. Parents are concerned about screentime and confused about the effects of video gaming. It’s hard to find information that’s relevant to your family and your kids. At Pixelkin, we’re focused on giving you comprehensive, objective information that breaks through all the clutter.

Make the Best Decisions

By educating yourself,  you’ll prepare yourself to decide which games your kids can play. Having the knowledge to back up your choices gives you the opportunity to describe your reasoning to your kids in a language they understand. At Pixelkin, we give you the tools to become fluent in the language of games.
