1Games for young children to play on PS4

Blaze and the Monster Machines: Axle City Racers

If you have a three or four year old in your family, you might be thinking about introducing them to video games.

It’s a good age to start playing games with your kids, providing they’ve shown an interest. Even getting a youngster used to using a controller can be tricky, so it’s important to choose the right game; something with simple controls and easy-to-follow instructions. And it’s important that you have patience with them! Allow them to play at their own pace, and allow them to make mistakes. After all, it’s how we all learn. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter if they’re not reaching the end of the level, or if they’re not completing objectives to begin with. Simply let them have fun, and get used to taking control of their on-screen character.

Knowing what games to play with your young children, however, can be tricky. Once upon a time, video games were seen as a children’s toy, but now the medium is the biggest entertainment industry in the world, with the core audience being adults. That doesn’t mean there’s no longer games for young children out there, though.

In fact, there are probably more children’s games than ever, and many of them are suitable for 3 to 4 year olds. Not all children’s games are made equal, though, so hopefully we can help you pick out some of the best. Click on through to see our picks of the best PS4 games for 3 to 4 year olds.
