There are a ton of awesome games for PS4 that your kids will absolutely love. Now it's up to you to choose the one that's right for your particular child. If you just can't decide, you might want to go with Minecraft. Just about every kid in the world loves it, so it's kind of a no-brainer. It's also perfect if you've got just one kid or another who wants something to play with friends and siblings.

For just one kid, something like the Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a good idea, giving them some classic fun platforming. You can also purchase some PlayStation Store digital currency, which is perfect for buying any digital game if you're having difficulty finding physical copies in stores. Then, when you're ready to upgrade to the next-gen console, you can find lots of great PS5 games for kids as well.
