Best Games on Google Stadia

Google Stadia is a cloud-based gaming service that lets users stream their games from anywhere -- including a mobile device. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Google announced that anyone with a Gmail account would be able to get Stadia Pro, their premium offering, for free for two months. The subscription service (which usually goes for $9.99 per month) has nine games included, which means those games are free during this time too. So check out these reviews and see which Stadia game is best for your kids. They can even get access to games they might find on other systems, like Final Fantasy XV, NBA 2K20, Just Dance 2020, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. For more games on the go, visit our list of the Best Nintendo Switch Games for Kids.
