TOP PS4 Kids Games

9. Gang Beasts

Gang Beasts is by far one of the funniest local multiplayer games available on the PS4. It’s a local multiplayer party game where you play simple blobby characters, competing to be the last one standing in a series of increasingly hazardous slapstick minigames. Although it is a lot of laughs - games can quickly get competitive, and the super simple controls are easy to pick up, but hard to master. 

8. Sonic Mania

If you played a lot of Sonic as a kid, then Sonic mania is the ideal way to share those memories with your kids. This colourful, musical platformer is one of the best Sonic games to come to console in a long time - probably because it stays so true to the original series. Like classic Sonic, the super simple controls are a gateway into deep, satisfying, sometimes infuriating platforming. 

7. Crash Bandicoot N-Sane trilogy

If you’re buying games for your kids, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with Crash Bandicoot yourself. These classic Playstation blockbusters have been remastered and released together - and it’s just as silly, loud and zany as ever. With three crazy games in one, there’s a lot of bang for your buck. It’s still easy to pick up, but hard to master. Your kids will love it as much as you did. 

6. Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

Although the catchy name of this game is clearly drawing a comparison to a certain Call of Duty series, don’t worry - this game is very family-friendly. It’s an online multiplayer shooter with a surprisingly meaty (veggie?) variety of single-player content, packaged with a bright, cartoony art style you’ll be familiar with if you played the first game. It’s actually pretty delightful to play, and very easy to get started with. 

5. Spyro: Reignited Trilogy

Remasters continue to be fantastic games to buy your kids because they love them for all the same reasons we loved them when we were growing up. Spyro is console platforming at it’s finest, and this remaster has improved every jump, every glide and every charge while keeping that signature Spyro attitude. Spyro: Reignited is, of course, also three games in one - meaning it’s got hours and hours of engrossing single-player fun to enjoy. 

4. Overcooked 2

Few games in recent memory are more delightful to play than Overcooked, and the sequel is even better. This cutesy cooking game has you control small chibi characters as they run back and forth cooking increasingly tricky recipes in increasingly wacky kitchens. Local co-op is the ideal way to play, and bumping into each other is bound to cause some rifts in the room. With timed missions, the busy kitchen quickly gets chaotic - and hilarious. 

3. Ratchet & Clank

It might follow the same story as the original, but Ratchet and Clank for PS4 is a totally different game. With silly jokes that wink and nod to all ages, a large roster of insane weapons to clear levels with and some tricky puzzle platforming thrown in, this game truly is the apex of all the games in this series that came before it. One of the best and most accessible games on the console. 

2. Little Big Planet 3

Who doesn’t love Sackboy? Simply one of the most pleasant platforming series out there, LittleBigPlanet is a masterwork of game design. While the Adventure Mode itself offers plenty of satisfying gameplay and the inimitable vocal talents of Stephen Fry as narrator, the co-op multiplayer and creation modes are where this game really comes alive, with hours of endless fun to be had. They’ll be thinking of level building ideas in their sleep. 

1. Minecraft

Minecraft is the biggest kids phenomenon since Pokémon. Beneath the blocky simplistic graphics, Minecraft offers engaging gameplay centred around the reward of creativity and hard work. In Adventure, there’s a focus on combat, and you’ll craft defences and fortresses to protect your creations from monsters. Multiplayer encourages you to build and survive together and makes the world more vibrant and alive. If you’re looking for a project you can play together, look no further.
