Editor's Notes

April 01, 2019:

Fun games on the Xbox One don't have to aggressive shoot-em-ups. In fact, some titles such as Overcooked! are decidedly non-violent and sure to entertain plays of all ages. Just Dance is great for keeping the whole family active, and there's nothing like a daily dance competition to increase moods and help kids burn off energy while adults burn calories. Stardew Valley and Super Lucky's Tale are similarly suitable for small children, and they're still fun for the adults around. In fact, be wary of Stardew Valley's ability to suck away hours and hours of your free time, as many users report a "just one more day" feeling to be quite common come in-game midnight. Anything by Lego is guaranteed to be great fun, and by the nature of Lego imagery, even the often-somber Star Wars film becomes lighthearted and low-stress to navigate. Rare Replay gives you the chance to revisit some wildly entertaining old-school classics and share them with friends and family, and Rayman Legends is a fast-paced (albeit sometimes rather difficult) 2D platformer than many parents and kids report enjoying together. Plants vs. Zombies is a collection of relative hilarity -- just look at the premise -- and you'll be enthralled for many hours as you delve into the huge variety of gameplay modes. But few family-friendly video games are as popular today as Rocket League, which has spawned a massive international community nearly on a par with those of Fortnite or Minecraft.
