Best Xbox 360 Games

While most of the attention has shifted to the 360's newest sibling, the Xbox One, gamers can still download Xbox 360 games through Xbox Live. But it's important when you're looking for Xbox games for kids to use some caution -- a lot of mature titles are inappropriate for the youngest gamers. The best games will have age-appropriate themes, such as those that follow the story of a favorite movie or allow kids to play virtual sports. Whether your kid is into action-adventure, puzzlers, or strategy games, we've got you covered with this list of our favorite Xbox 360 games. If you're looking for games for the newest system from Microsoft, check out our list of Xbox One Games for Kids.
