Nonviolent Video Games
Violence doesn't have to be part of video games for kids. In fact, there are plenty of games where you won't have to pick up a weapon or intentionally cause harm to another person or thing. Instead, these games focus more on exploration, personal growth, or storytelling. Below, we've compiled a group of games where violence isn't the focus of the on-screen action. Kids can have fun learning, dancing, solving puzzles, playing sports, and more. If you're interested in games that specifically avoid violence for certain consoles, check out our Nonviolent Games for PS4 list or our Nonviolent Games for Xbox One list.
