Nonviolent Games for PS4

Playing on Sony's PS4 is loads of fun, especially with virtual reality headsets producing a more immersive experience. Unfortunately, this immersion can also come at a price, as some of the games on the popular system can be full of violent content that not all families want to see or want their kids to play. Fortunately, plenty of other releases feature nonviolent, family-friendly play for everyone from kids to teens. Looking for games that are safe for your kids? Below is a list of titles that parents and their children can watch and enjoy without worrying about offensive or troubling content popping up. If you're interested in other games for family game night, check out our Family Video Games list.
