How to Choose the Best Xbox 360 Game for Your Child


If you have teenage boys, the odds are good that you will need to go shopping for Xbox games this holiday season. Unless you are a big video game fan yourself, it can be really difficult to figure out which games to buy. You don’t want to accidentally pick up something that they already have, or something that they won’t play. Everyone wants to be the cool mom (or aunt, or sister, or grandmother) who gives the boys a game they will be excited about playing with their friends. Thankfully, there is help. Start looking early, like on Thanksgiving weekend. There are lots of great games to choose from, and with Cyber Monday Xbox 360 deals 2013, you can even save some money on your Christmas shopping.


There are Cyber Monday Xbox 360 deals for all kinds of games. You can find fighting games, like Street Fighter X Tekken. This is a classic style fighting game that combines the gameplay styles of the two most popular martial arts fighting series, Street Fighter and Tekken. This one doesn’t have any guns, so it’s a good choice for younger boys. Plus, it has an option that allows kids to plug in two controllers, and fight against each other. That way nobody has to sit out, and everyone can have a turn. This game has great reviews online, so even picky video game players should be able to have fun with it.

If you don’t want the kids to play violent games, have no fear. There are Cyber Monday Xbox 360 deals for more family friendly games, as well. One of the best picks for younger kids is Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. This game is very cute, and it’s fun for girls or boys. The game is about a little purple dragon and his friends (including a kangaroo, a cheetah, a penguin, a firefly and a whole team of fairies), and they go on quests in a pretty world filled with magic and strange creatures. The game comes with a set of figurines for the different characters. As the kids play, they can plug in their favorite figurine, and then play as that character. This one is sure to be a hit on Christmas morning.

These are just examples of the most popular Xbox games for 2013; there are many others out there. If your child likes a particular movie or television show, you could look for a corresponding video game from the creators. There are also lots of video game titles that are based on popular board games, too. These can be great if you are looking for something that the whole family can play at once. Then there are games that try to get kids to be active, like the dancing games that come with a dance mat. The mat is the game controller, and you win points in the game by stepping on the mat in time with the song. No matter what your child is interested in, there is an Xbox game out there that they will love.
