    "Minecraft remains one of the games kids will play for hours on end or watch videos about (also for hours on end). I think for most adults it loses its appeal after about 30 minutes, but the kids have really built a community around it so it does have its strengths in keeping them occupied and entertained. There are some areas where other people can ruin the experience, so while it can be a safe family game, it does require a minimal amount of monitoring. There are worse ways you could spend your time."

    "This game may be a little difficult for younger kids but it is a lot of fun. It is one of the best games I have played in a long time."

 DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that The Game of Life was originally a checkered board game which taught children the importance of living an ethical life? Originally called The Checkered Game of Life, the board game was created by Milton Bradley in 1860. The game's rules were fairly simple, with players navigating on a board which resembled a checkerboard, trying to land on spaces which symbolizes virtuous traits such as Perseverance and Honesty, all the while avoiding negative traits like Idleness and Crime. Another interesting thing to note is that a six-sided top called a teetotum instead of dice, due to it being associated with gambling during that period.

It comes without a doubt that board games were the staple of family game nights back in the day. But with the emergence of video games, consoles eventually took over the pastime, with family games for PS4, Xbox, and PCs being made available to the general public. At the same time, even games that aren't considered as "family-friendly" are being played by families. Said games usually belong to the MOBA, MMORPG, and FPS genre, although other genres may be played as well. Knowing these, it's no surprise that games have brought plenty of families closer together, thanks to their shared interests and hobbies.

    "Carving your way through a level in Broforce is full of carnage, as explosions rock the screen and you tear through the scenery. Though inventive, some of the boss fights halt that fun, and the way co-op deals with lives is too unforgiving, but it’s always throwing out something new, whether it’s a different looking environment to blow up, a new type of enemy to blow up or another new bro to add to the team and blow things up with."

Yooka-Laylee has beautiful landscape visuals, a fantastic soundtrack, and fast-paced action. I think the game is enjoyable but it doesn't really draw you into the action as the characters and stories are too simplistic and predictable. It is too bad because otherwise, this would be a great game."
