2019 has been quite a year, especially for video games.  From new indie titles to massive triple-A series, it’s been a blast looking at all the latest releases.

But of all those video games, which ones are the best for your kids?  Here’s a list of the top video games I recommend, out of all the ones I looked at in 2019.  These are the ones your young one can play, with no worries for you as a parent.

In no particular order . . .

CROSSNIQ+
I fell in love with this 90s-style puzzle game back when it first released, and I still highly recommend it.  Its mechanic of creating cross-shapes out of blocks looks easy, but there’s plenty of challenge and fun involved.  For family game nights, there’s a versus mode where players can duke it out for CROSSNIQ+ supremacy.  It’s a great game for all-ages, and the puzzle-lovers in your family will be hooked.

Reverie
Here’s a title that just entered onto the Switch this year, and which I really enjoyed.  This Zelda-style adventure on a New Zealand island is a fun retro throwback, with plenty of fun to be had.  Playing as a boy visiting his grandparents, you soon find yourself thrown into a dangerous quest, seeking to stop spirits who want to destroy the island.  The game is full of E-rated charm, with entertaining characters, fun secrets, and friendly combat.  A great opportunity for you and your kids to go exploring together.

UglyDolls: An Imperfect Adventure
This is one I wasn’t expecting to praise.  As the first movie tie-in game in quite a while, I expected this imperfect adventure to be an imperfect failure.  But its colorful graphics and thoughtful, but simple, gameplay won me over.  This is definitely a title more for younger kids than the other two, but I still think it’s worth checking out.
