Titanfall 2 is getting some pretty solid backing/reviews...  I'd heard there was some concern it was gonna fail because of delays and such, but so far things are looking good for it.  I can't game much anymore but I'll make myself play some Titanfall 2.

Whelp.  Nice knowing all of you.  I'll be unavailable for the foreseeable future!  :D

Any suggestions on an Xbox One game to get for kids ages 7-10?

My buddy's 6 year old lives and breathes Minecraft.  I'm not 100% sure, but I'm guessing 7-10 year olds are into it too.

Yeah, the kids have that one already.

I guess I should have asked if there are any newish games that have come out in the past six months or are coming out in the next few weeks that people would recommend for that age range.

The last new game we picked up was TFA Lego which for some reason they really never got in to as much as some of the Avengers Lego game.

FIFA and Rocket League seem like kids would like them... it's tough since Xbox mainly caters to teens and older with the million shooter games

Yeah, the kids are always asking me for the first person shooter games with a mature rating.  Not going to happen with 7-9 year olds.

I'll have to check out Rocket League.

My oldest is 6 and he like the Lego games.  Did you pick up the Lego: TFA game yet?

I find the Lego games always fun Matt, and a lot of replay value...  While I don't like it, Battlefront is a fairly tame shooter game.  Titanfall I love and consider it a little less violent too since it's got robots and stuff.  Shooters may be a little too advanced for the youngest though. :(  My gf's kids did ok with them though at that age but that was a long time ago.

Can 7-9 year olds play Rock Band / Guitar Hero?  I've played those a few times and they seem pretty fun.

I've tried a little with my 6 year old, but I think he's a little too young for it.  I bet if I let him play more...he'd be better.  It could be worth it with your kids Dave.

Hell, I bought an X-box one back in July and other than Halo5...I've just been replaying Mass Effect!  :D

Just got Titanfall 2 on WM's Black Friday price and I'm surprised at its rating.  I considered it on par with Battlefront in terms of violence... I wonder if BF has a mature rating too?  Never looked at it or thought about that till now.
