Christmas Buyer's Guide | Games For Kids

Too often games geared towards a more youthful audience are rife with mediocrity and repetition. So we've tried to pick out a few games from the past twelve months that offer a little more in terms of quality. There's a range of titles to be had here and it should be noted that we've tried not to choose five titles that are only suitable for kids. Rather a couple of these games are quite simply experiences to be enjoyed by all ages, and all the better for it.

The holidays don't have to be expensive.

Note that a couple of these titles require you to own a motion control peripheral. If you're still on the fence, why not check out our Kinect and PlayStation Move reviews?

Everyone plays games these days, even if they don't consider themselves to be a gamer. My own dear mother enjoys a variety of puzzle titles and RPGs but she's often to be found with her Nintendo DS firmly in hand, helping Professor Layton unravel mysteries. Now, we don't subscribe to the view that women only play Nintendogs and cover their games consoles in heart stickers and perfume, and therefore we've tried to resist the retail temptation to stereotype. Rather we've used our own mothers as a basis for this.

No...Dead Space 2 is not on the list.
