The Xbox One is on the top of a lot of kids’ Christmas list this year. But, the newest and shiniest Xbox on the block doesn’t need to be the only game in town. The Xbox 360 has a very strong lineup of games and it will be available at very reasonable prices now. The following is a list of Xbox 360 games that are worth a look this holiday season.
It’s getting to the point now where I am convinced that the President plays Minecraft. This game is available on every non-Nintendo, non-Sony device on the market. Every where you go you will find school ages kids talking about Minecraft and what they have built.
If, somehow, you have missed out on it so far all you need to know: It is a Digital LEGO building game. Players are encouraged to explore and discover combinations of different materials as they find them. This game is everything that you make of it. Kids who love to express themselves creatively will fall in love with this game.
LEGO branded games have been the surprise hit of this console generation and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes looks like it is one of the best. It is lower priced than other games on the market ($50) and is loaded with super heroes. Your child favorite is all but guaranteed to be playable. This is an excellent gift for the Marvel fan on your list!
Rayman is a game mascot that was left forgotten by gamers for years until he was resurrected by Ubisoft with the surprise hit Rayman Origins.
Rayman Legends improves on virtually every aspect of its predecessor. The hand drawn art and animations are a joy to look at and the use of licensed music makes this game a treat.
It is on the challenging side, so you should make sure you know your child’s skill level before you buy it. But, this is an excellent gift for children who love platforming games.
Just Dance 2014 (Requires Kinect)
Ubisoft, the company responsible for the Just Dance franchise, looks like they will be cranking out these titles until the end of time. This is great news for fans of the dance game genre.
Just Dance is an annual release that includes updated song lists and dance routines. Anyone who enjoys dancing like a crazy person in front of their friends is in for a treat here. Just don’t be ashamed to dance in front of your kids… it’s our job to embarrass them!
Ducktales for the NES is considered one of the best platform games ever made. It was incredibly challenging, but it was one of the first games to allow players to tackle challenges in any order.
Anyone with fond memories of the cartoon will want to take a look here. The developers managed to secure the entire original cast of the series so it will be nonstop nostalgia the whole way through!
