The Best Kids' Video Games of the Decade (2010–2019)
It's hard to imagine how far gaming has come in the past 10 years. With the rise of livestreaming, esports, and VR, the video game landscape in 2019 is very different from what it was in 2010.

Each of the games on this list defined its genre and created a lasting impact that influenced many of the games that followed. While some have complicated legacies (we're looking at you, Fortnite!), all of these picks have inspired a new generation of gamers.
