"Best of" Lists
Best Video Games for Teens
If you have a teen gamer on your hands, this list is for you. We've compiled some of the best options on the market for the 12-and-older set, from classic RPGs and adventure sims to turn-based strategy games and brainteasers loaded with learning. Be forewarned: We know that content for older gamers can sometimes push the edge of what parents are comfortable with. These top-rated titles aren't as mature as Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto, but some still contain edgy content some kids may not be ready to handle. Be prepared to discuss how sex and violence are depicted in these popular picks.
