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!
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.
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!
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!
Those are my favorites! As we try more games, I’ll add my newest “likes” to the list.
