Hi all, I'm a new member here looking for a game to play with my 12 year old boy and possibly my 9 year old girl. I don't game much anymore but was once a huge fan of Everquest and I also love Skyrim. My boy loves skyrim as well. We are considering Elder Scrolls Elswer but I thought I'd ask some of you gaming experts as I'm way out of touch with current games. Are there any games we should look into?
I have two current high powered gaming PC's an old 10 year old gaming PC (still ticking) as well as an XBOX1. Any help greatly appreicated.
how about something like Portal Knights
? There's been a couple of very solid recommendations so far, but I'm not so sure most of those are very suitable for a 9-year old. Portal Knights
is built with co-op in mind, is definitely aimed at a younger crowd and will scratch that RPG itch. If either you or your kids have an artistic side there's a bit of Minecraft
in there too. The art style is or isn't to your taste, but I think the game looks very attractive and your kids will love it for sure.
It's a well-rounded package available on all platforms and it even supports couch co-op, which is excellent fun if you want to get together in the living room and enjoy the game as a family. I played through this with my girlfriend and we enjoyed it very much!
If you are going the action RPG route I would go with Torchlight 2
. It has the friendliest art style and I'm pretty sure that if there's blood at all you can turn it off completely. It's a game in the vein of Diablo
, so I'm sure you know exactly what you are getting into with this one. It's good, mindless fun with a great campaign and a fun endgame that will keep you busy for a while. I think a console version is available as well.
Lastly, I quite like the look of Dragon Quest Builders 2
(which also supports couch co-op) but I haven't played this one myself. It ticks a lot of the same boxes that Portal Knights
does, but this one places a bigger emphasis on building and improving the town that you are trying to protect from monsters, hence the 'builders' in the title.
I hope any of these recommendations will be of use to you.
