Back in the day, we used to play with action figures and models of popular cartoon shows like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or buy merchandise of famous Disney movies and set them up in our room and play with them. But now all kids love to play video games. Hand them a controller for PC or gaming device and they are the happiest beings alive.
Listed below are our top 5 online games for such children:
Marvel Super Hero Squad Online
Marvel Super Hero Squad Online is a superhero game with action-filled fights, which are made to look non-violent. This massively multiplayer online browser game is intended for children of various groups and fans of Marvel studios. To keep things interesting, humorous effects – such as burping and farting – have been added. The positive thing about this game is that the open chat system can be controlled by parents.
You have a list of superheroes to choose from and each superhero has their own special powers and fighting tactics. As you clear levels, more powers will be unlocked enabling you to go on an adventure to the places portrayed in the cartoon series as well.
Adventure Quest Worlds
Being a browser-based, child-friendly game, Adventure Quest Worlds is a gaming platform with a variety of play options and server types. The screen can be adjusted to the player’s liking as well. You can play it for free or purchase the premium server by paying a monthly fee and get unlimited access to this exciting game. As the name suggests, the player goes on an adventure and has to fight enemies and explore different realms in the game world, called Lore. At the moment, there are 7 realms to explore. To go on the next adventure, you must clear the first one. Everything is controlled by the Mouse, from movement to fighting methods.
Arcane Legends is an addictive game giving you a complete Massively Multiplayer Online experience. The antagonists are Goblins that burn down villages and terrorize the general public, and you have to restore peace back in the city by fighting against them and defeating them. From a common man, you evolve into a real hero by the end of the game. The graphics and animations are amazing along with the sound effects and emphasis on small details make the experience even more worthwhile.
The player takes the role of a child wizard who has just got selected to join the Wizard Academy. This is pretty obvious that Wizard101 was created on the grounds of a similar but popular novel and movie, the Harry Potter series. But this game, although a mimic of the original, is able to pull it all together, hands down. The production values are quite high and different from the rest of the Asian MMO games that do not have voice overs and poor graphics. The players can choose which magic element they want to master from a list of seven elements; Fire, Ice, Storm, Life, Myth, Death and Balance.
Guild Wars 2
Guild Wars 2, the next World of Warcraft? This Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game is not like other MMO games with poor story and character development and monotonous game tactics. It takes the MMPORG genre to a whole new level. It is a combative game and can be played by children of various ages.
Apart from these superhit games, go for the good old game of Mario to lighten up your mood. It does not require deep thinking or mental involvement. It provides joy and helps to relieve stress with its simple game moves and levels. Play it on Xbox, Nintendo or PC by simply logging onto Friv and Juegos Friv.
