Looking for Games for Kids to Play on the PS4?

My husband has a PS4 and my kids try to take over it all the time. Since the system was originally purchased for my husband to use, we didn’t have many games for the kids to play.

We did some searching around and found a few games that the kids can play.  It was cool to see that some of these games were the same as the games featured on my online games list. Overall, Playstation has a pretty big selection of kids games for the PS4 so let’s go through some of my favorites!

 

Lego Marvel Super Heroes

I think the Lego team has created a game for every kid. The Marvel Super Heroes edition is a staple at my house. It has a multiplayer option which is obviously important if you have multiple kids in your home. Each mission unlocks a different superhero with a different special power. My kids like it because it has a multiplayer option which is obviously important if you have multiple kids in your home.

Each mission unlocks a different superhero with a different special power. First, you play the mission with the characters provided and once you complete the mission you can go back and play it in Free Play Mode which allows you to use any character that you have unlocked.

Some of the tasks require a special skill which allows you to play each mission multiple times through and discover new things each time. My kids like it because the characters make lots of jokes throughout the gameplay so it never gets old!

Lego also has games featuring the characters from The Lego Movie, Jurassic World, Marvel Avengers, and MANY MORE

Unravel

This is a truly beautiful game all around. From the story line to the imagery used, kids and adults alike can appreciate the love put into this game.

You follow the main character Yamy, a yarn doll made of a single thread of yarn, on a mission to get back to the little old lady who dropped him from her basket.

The story is told without any words which helps you appreciate the art that much more. You are welcomed by scenery from Northern Scandinavia.

The gameplay itself is physics based. You use Yamy’s yarn/body to swing from trees and solve small yet sometimes challenging puzzles in an effort to meet your goal.

Minecraft

Yes, Minecraft is available on the PS4! My kids surprise me with how much they learn from this game. They know all of the combinations to make/spawn rare objects in the game, they build elaborate buildings and homes and then they rig them to explode when an uninvited visitor (mostly villagers) stop by.

This game is packed with different boards and mods that can be downloaded (some for free) to expand the fun your child has in the game. If you don’t know about Minecraft, head over to my short description of it here >>>>Best Kids Games Online.

Kids can even play online with kids from around the world. They can talk to one another in the battle mode and build together in the regular game mode!

Pac-Man Championship

If you like 1980’s gameplay but want high def and 3D graphics, you have come to the right place. This game features all of the things that we loved about the original Pac-Man fun and mixes it with today’s game style.

You know how to play right, eat all of the dots and move on to the next stage! This game is sure to get the attention of every adult and child in the room. Try it out!

  • The Lego games are fun for kids. Rocket league is a good game for kids to play. Ps now also offers a variety of arcade games for children. Great post!

    • Hi, Shannon! LEGO has tons of games out right now. I like that whatever you child is interested in, they probably have something for them. We just bought Terreria si I think that will be added next!

  • Nice picks for kids games. The Unravel game looks good, it seems unique which is great as it will keep kids attention. I don’t play many video games but I enjoy watching them played and theat game looks like it would be fun just to watch whats going on while someone else plays.

    • Hi! You are right about that! The story line of Unravel is so good you don’t have to be the one playing in order to enjoy it. I think that is the reason that adults and kids all like it.

  • Hi, thank you very much for this sharing.
    Some of them are classics choices.

    However, may I ask question, do these games need parental control? If so, is there any way to make sure we can activate it in the device? I am not very familiar with PS (you know…gen X), but this is something that my kids and nephew would love to have.

    Thanks

    • Hi! The games themselves are made for kids so there is no harsh language and there is no inappropriate content. The PS4 console itself does allow you to set parental controls. We have all of these games in our home and we have never had any problems. Give them a try!

      Thanks for your comment!

  • Great games for kids like us! I know what you would think – that I am not a kid! Yes, maybe I am not but I love playing with my kid so all these titles sound great too me! Pacman championships it would be my first choice definitely! I will give them all a try!
    Best wishes,
    Rebecca!

    • Hi Rebecca! My 6 year old is still upset that he can’t beat my Pac Man high score. HAHA It still amazes me how many different versions of this game you can find now. I thought the only variation was Mrs. Pac Man…I was wrong.

  • My nephew recently got a PS4 for this birthday and I was considering which games to get for him. He loves action heroes especially the Hulk.

    Lego Marvel Super Heroes would be perfect. The multiplayer mode is ideal because there’s no doubt that his sister will want to play as well when she sees him enjoying the game. Thanks for recommending.

    • Hello, Cheryl! No problem. I’m sure your nephew and niece will love Marvel Super Heroes. They would also enjoy Marvel’s Avengers. That is pretty similar but it has different missions to expand the fun!

      Thanks for your comment and please come back soon!
