Author: Andy Robertson

If you are looking for games you are in the right place. Our parent experts spend hours every day to stay ahead of what children are playing. This means we can highlight the games you need to watch out for as well as the games other parents and guardians are keen for their children to play.

Along with the ways to browse video games on this page, you can also use our tailored search tool. We group games by the experience they offer:
  • Style of Play: How you want to play games together (Split-Screen, Co-operative, Competitive, Online).
  • Game Components: The elements that you play with and the kind of world you are playing in (Dice, 3D, 2D, Cards).
  • Game Genres: Which interactions and game structures you enjoy (Adventuring, Racing, Puzzling, Strategising).
  • Curated Lists: What themes you want to engage with (Trust, Identity, Justice, Hope, Love).
We group games by the equipment and subscriptions you need to play them:
  • Game Platforms: What platforms (PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, PC) you want to play on.
  • Collections: Similar games playable with particular software systems (Roblox, Dreams).
  • Subscriptions: Games you can access via monthly subscriptions (Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation Plus).
  • Franchise: A series of games in a particular franchise (Pikmin, Super Mario, Uncharted).
