A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
This game encourages families or teams to work together and earn the most points possible. The game encourages healthy, fun competition among players, and relays the message that strong teamwork is the way to win.
Positive Role Models
Like the TV show on which it's based, families are the star of this game. Players are shown that playing together with other people in real life can be a fun, rewarding, and enjoyable experience.
Ease of Play
The survey questions are designed to be accessible and family-friendly so that anyone can play. There are also three different levels of difficulty, allowing players to tailor the experience based on who's playing. However, the mechanics of the game require players to type in answers quickly. Younger players can still play along in the game but may require the help of others to actually input their answers.
Violence & Scariness
Of the thousands of survey questions in the game, the content in the vast majority of them is appropriate for players of all ages. However, there are some that make references to violence. As examples, one question asks for ways that children might abuse their pet dog, and another poses, "Name an animal that would just love to rip you apart."

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Of the thousands of survey questions in the game, the content in the vast majority of them is appropriate for players of all ages. However, there are some that refer to alcohol and smoking. These questions are very neutral and clinical in context, such as a reference to wine as something one might have in a refrigerator, and a cigar as something associated with Groucho Marx.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Family Feud Decades is a family-friendly video game adaptation of the TV game show Family Feud. In a unique twist, players can go through survey questions from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. The survey questions are meant to be easy for everyone to answer, as the game is simply about having a fun time with fellow players.
Is It Any Good?
Family Feud Decades is one of the few games that actually emphasizes how a family can play together as a team. This particular version of Family Feud is even more appealing for parents and children to play together because players can turn the clock back and answer surveys that were originally asked in the 1970s or 1980s. It opens up the channel of communication for how times have changed over the years, and for parents to share stories of their life when they were their children's age. As a game that is truly accessible to players of any age, Family Feud Decades is sure to be a hit for any family.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
