With Christmas now only two months away, it’s the time of year when a lot of parents start shopping for video games. And, if you’re one of them, you probably have some of the same thoughts that I do, “Hey kid – I remember when your Christmas wish list had an awful lot of $20 items on it. What’s up with these expensive games?”
I like, however, that this list includes a variety of prices. I prefer to buy video games from Amazon when possible, as I find that I often save a few dollars per game (and sometimes even more) than buying them at one of the big box stores. Also, it’s nice that I then don’t have to try to find someone to unlock a game case for me.
My children are aged 6 – 11 (two boys and a girl), and I’m compiling their list together. (Mostly because I don’t honestly know that I have the patience to have each of them tell me their top ten favorite games. Making choices isn’t the forte of more then one of my children, so it would be painful.) No game went onto the list unless at least two of the children agreed, though most of them all three of the kids agreed on.
Their top ten favorite Wii games that they own (Listed in no particular order. Almost all of the games are rated E, with one or two at E10+. The only one rated T is noted next to the game.):
2. World of Zoo
3. Toy Story 3
4. Rabbids Go Home (We actually enjoy all of the different Rabbids games)
9. Super Smash Brothers Brawl (This is rated T for Teen, though I’m not exactly sure why. I think it’s just because they fight with weapons, but there is no blood or graphic violence that I’ve noticed. This is one of the few Teen games the kids have, and it’s just because they have loved the other Super Smash Brothers games and having seen those, I thought this would be fine.)
10. Carnival Games
Check out next week when I quiz them on their top ten favorite Nintendo DS games.
