10 Xbox 360 Games for Kids

Below is a list of games that I would recommend for kids to play with the Xbox 360:

Xbox 360 is Microsoft’s second offering in the video console market. Below is a list of games that I would recommend for kids to play with this game console:


Xbox360-MonopolyThis classic game is great way to bring the whole family together. Everyone’s most probably familiar with the mechanics of the game. Players have to amass great amounts of cash and real estate property while trying to put others out of business. The traditional Atlantic City board is still there along with nine other boards that feature a broad range of themes.

You’re in the Movies

Xbox360-You're In The MoviesThis is a perfect game to bring your kids out of their inhibitions. The game features a Vision Camera where players will do pretty crazy and wild moves like dancing, shaking or jumping. Scores are given for each player but it is clearly not very competitive. Crazy moves that players did in the mini games will then be compiled to make an amusing movie. Great for anyone in your family who plans to be a movie star!
