My Kids' Video Game Recommendations for Christmas 2012

Top Ten Tuesday at Many Little Blessings

I have done a post similar to this for the last several years.  My kids always love to offer up their suggestions for which video games would make amazing gifts this Christmas.  They were excited when I told them that it was their turn to tell me what to put in the Top Ten {Tuesday} this week.

All of the games included are ones that we own and that they play with regularly.  They tried to put on games that were on their own wish list, but I wouldn’t allow that.  I like for this list to consist only of the games that at least two of the three children have played (and continue to play with) and would feel comfortable recommending to friends.

This year, I didn’t break it up by game system.  Instead, I just wanted their top ten current favorites without worrying about what games system it belonged to.

My Kids’ Video Game Recommendations

my kids' favorite games for 20121. New Super Mario Brothers (Wii)

2. Skylanders Giants (Wii/PS3/XBox360/3DS/Wii U) – They also really like the original Skylanders game.  They just mentioned the Giants version specifically because it is their newest game.  (That link is for the set if you already own the Skylanders games.  If you don’t already have the original Skylanders game, you’ll need the whole Skylanders Giants Starter Set.)

3. Just Dance 4 (Wii/PS3/XBox360/Wii U) – See, I’m not the only one who loves it in this house.

4. Super Scribblenauts (DS)

5. Mario Kart 7 (3DS)

6. Pokemon White and Pokemon Black (DS)

7. Horses 3D (3DS) – My review of Horses 3D

8. Cooking Mama 2: Dinner with Friends (DS)

9. Funky Barn 3D (3DS) – My review of Funky Barn 3D

10. Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games (Wii/3DS)
