Best Xbox Series X/S Games for Kids

Microsoft unveiled two systems in November 2020: the Xbox Series X, and the smaller Series S. While both can play the latest titles, the Series S was designed to be all-digital -- without a disc drive -- while the Series X was designed to be the most powerful game console ever made. Both benefited from Microsoft's dedication to backwards compatibility, meaning any game bought for any Microsoft console can be played on either machine. Below, we've gathered the best titles for the Series X and S, so you can always see the standouts. If you're into older Xbox games, check out Best Xbox One Games for Kids, or look for other systems, such as Best PS5 Games for Kids and Best Nintendo Switch Games for Kids.
