The (All Too) Usual
Suspects
 

If you ask for suggestions of video games for your children to play there's often a strong response on social media - all the more so if you are a non-gamer. Although these suggestions are often helpful, they circulate the same small pool of popular games, often at the expense of less familiar titles.

We've created this list of popular family video game suggestions so you can find them in one place. Also, it lets us offer you suggestions that avoid these usual suspects in favour of something a bit more off-piste and adventurous.
 
This list includes 90 games from the last 33 years, with 6,769 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to avoid the popular games.
