Best Upcoming New Video Games for Kids 2016
Computer games are one of the best things that kids love to play with. However, parents should make it a point that their children do not spend much time on the PC, playing games.
If you have kids that love to play video games, they are part of a large number of kids that enjoy video games in the United States. Many parents watch their kids laugh and giggle at catching mushrooms or running through a forest with obstacles at every turn. PC games for kids can entertain your kids and give you a much needed break in the meantime.
There are certain games that are considered appropriate for kids to play. These games have elements of education, sports, logical thinking, and other aspects necessary for the development of children. There are even puzzles and word-completion games which are believed to be the best computer games for children. These kinds of games do not have a bad effect on kids.
List of the Best Computer Games for Kids
Trove is a free-to-play PC game that has a similar aesthetic as Minecraft, but it’s set in a massive universe of online worlds. Players can adventure, explore and create in endless realms. Unfortunately, it IS only for PC with no mention of a console version in the works.
Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival
The original Animal Crossing became all the rage among kids ages 6-12 when it released on the 3DS a couple years ago. Now, a similar experience, Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, is coming to the Nintendo Wii U. This version will be a party game that uses Nintendo Amiibo.
It’s basically a re-skinned Mario Kart, and Nintendo isn’t doing much to hide that fact. Still, if your children love Garfield, and love the Garfield Kart mobile game, they’ll surely love the Garfield Kart 3DS game, which has 16 different circuits, 4 different game modes, and the ability to customize your racer.
Trackmania has been a secret gem of the PC masterrace for nearly two years now, and now that crazy racing fun is heading to the PS4 and Xbox One with Trackmania Turbo. The game will include a campaign mode that will test the skills of players and challenge them to earn medals on over 200 unique tracks with 5 different difficulty levels. The game also includes 4 environments with 4 different types of gameplay, and will include a track builder (which I’m most excited about). If your kids love racing and crashing, Trackmania Turbo will be the perfect game for them come 2016.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Like many, we were disappointed with the news that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End wouldn’t see the light of 2015. The upcoming action-adventure game will take place three years after Uncharted 3, with a retired Nathan Drake being needed by his older brother, Sam. The duo chase the conspiracy behind a long lost pirate colony and the treasure contained within. You can read more about the Uncharted 4 Collector’s Edition.
Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash
The Mario Tennis franchise will return in 2015 with Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash for the Nintendo Wii U. The game will include a new jumpshot as well as the ability to grow with a Mega Mushroom to play in a Mega Battle. Players will be able to play in both singles and doubles matches as their favorite Mario character.
Just Dance 2016
Just Dance 2016 is set to be released in October, and it will bring back the favorite game modes World Dance Floor, Sweat Mode and Karaoke. The game will included the hottest pop hits from Jason Derulo, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and more. Just Dance 2016 is a great game to get your kids up and moving off of the couch, and they’ll have fun playing it.
