5 Xbox One Games Kids Will Want This Year

I have a feeling the Xbox One will be a very popular gift for the upcoming holiday season. With lots of great media functionality and all of the fun games that are available (or will be available soon)  your child will probably be wanting one for himself.

But what games should you buy your kids for the Xbox One. We’ve got you covered! We’ve come up with some games we think will be the most popular among kids this year. 

5 Xbox One Games Kids Will Want This Year

You’ll definitely want to be on the lookout for some great deals on these with the holidays coming up. I’m sure most stores will have some great deals for Black Friday or Cyber Monday that’ll you’ll want to take advantage of. Walmart has a lot of Xbox One games and usually have some great deals.

1. Forza Horizon 2

With Forza Horizon 2 players are able to race through a massive wide-open world featuring dramatic weather and day-tonight cycles. Players can instantly connect with friends in the ultimate celebration of speed, style, and action-packed driving and explore beautiful and exotic locations in more than 200 of the world’s greatest cars, all created with precise detail.

2. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

I’m still not quite sure what makes this game so fun, but it is. I’ve played this a few times and quite enjoy it. I don’t know what it is about blasting zombies, plants and new characters across a mine-blowing world that both kids and adults enjoy but I know it will be a popular seller.

3. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

Ahh.. LEGO. Every kid I’ve ever talked to about video games was a fan of at least one of the LEGO games. With the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes kids can smash, swing and fly in the first LEGO video game featuring more than 100 of their favorite super heroes and super villains from the Marvel Universe. Kids can play as their favorite characters including Iron Man, Wolverine, Hulk, Spider-Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Loki and Deadpool as they try to help save Earth 

4. Madden NFL 15

From a lot of reviews I’ve read, EA has really stepped with up with their Madden series. The new Madden NFL 15 has cleaner graphics and better gameplay according to the rules. If your child is a sports fan, or a football fan, he’ll probably add this game to his wish list.

5. Destiny

In Destiny you are a Guardian of the last city on Earth. Explore the ancient ruins of the solar system, from the red dunes of Mars to the lush jungles of Venus. Your mission is to reclaim all that has been lost and “Become Legend”. Destiny is an open world so they can play alone or join friends.

Because a lot of these games are an open world community game, be sure to know what your kids are doing and who they are interacting with and take precautions to keep them safe.

What’s on your child’s wishlist?
