It’s time to get silly with adventures

So your kiddos are old enough to know that their controllers aren’t actually plugged while you were letting them pretend to play. Now what? You probably don’t want them playing your Overwatch game just so you can hear your heart audibly break when they plummet your score, so it’s time to get them some fun PlayStation 4 games of their own! Heck, even if you don’t have children these games are still pretty fun for adults!

Crash Bandicoot N. Trilogy

We all remember what it was like to rip the plastic off of our brand new Crash Bandicoot game for the original PlayStation. After school we all spent hours on end beating the levels, looking for the secret floors and trying to collect all of the gem shards. Well now for as low as $ 33.49 delicious Wumpa fruits you can have the entire trilogy to pass down the legacy of defeating Dr. Neo Cortex before he can take over the world. Get your kids collecting all of those delicious Wumpa fruit to gain lives and spin their way to the top! You can even make it a family adventure and show them all the neat tricks you remember!

LEGO Worlds

Any of the LEGO games are perfect for all ages. The stories and objectives are easy enough for your children to follow along to, and fun enough for you to want to plug in your own controller to play with them. That means this game isn’t just a perfect reward system for your child to earn time playing for their good grades, it’s also a great bonding experience. It’s hard to beat the price of $ 14.98 for a game that will go on and on like this one. Boost your child’s creativity by having them build their own world from the ground up with LEGO Worlds!

Just Dance

Just Dance is perfect for getting some quiet time for yourself because the kids are entertained and know that they’re actually up and moving too. For $ 40.99 on Amazon you can find this wonderful title, full of the best music to get up and groove to. Not just that, but all of the fun and whacky rave style graphics are sure to get this party bumping. The multiplayer option makes this game great for when they have friends over as well.

Rayman Legends

This side-scrolling platform game is sure to grab the attention of anyone. Much like Sonic your goal is to get to the finish line on the other side of the map, but instead of collecting coins you are saving fury friends from impending doom. For $ 23.99 on Amazon you can be the proud owner of Rayman Legends, which is the best Rayman game to date. Not only have they upped their gameplay and graphics, but not much can get you more pumped than running from bad guys to the tune of Black Betty by Ram Jam.

Overcooked will always be on my list of some of the funnest family games to play when you’re looking for time to kill on game night. With only 3 control buttons this is a game that is super easy to get the hang of. Although the levels do get increasingly hard (even for a group of adults) the amount of fun you’ll have will triumph over any defeat. You can get this 4 player game for $ 19.99 on Amazon, and the fun won’t stop there. Although only 4 people can control characters on the screen, a 4th (or even 5th) person is always handy for calling out the orders from the top of the screen to help the process go by easier.

For $ 34.99 you can add Minecraft to your PlayStation library as fun for the whole family. Although it’s a single player game there is a multiple save option available so everyone can have their own world to create. If your kids are old enough to creatively build their own world, but not quite old enough to battle the Enderman and zombies you can always set the mode to “Peaceful” so that they’ll be left alone to build. Minecraft might be low on the graphics scale, but the creators seem to always be adding new content like donkeys, horses, and botanical magic. Get the creative juices flowing!
