Its hard finding Playstation 3 games for boys and teenage boys that they’ll actually play. Gaming console if its Call of Duty or Battlefield 3 but these games are crazy violent and as parent we want to find games that are challenging and fun but don’t give Post Traumatic Stress from playing…
I have been making list of “best video games for…” since 2005 and update often. I am part of busy homeschooling community and talk to lots of kids and they make it a point to bring up the latest video games with me. I am very big on play value- games that cost you 60 bucks shouldn’t be collecting dust on shelf after a day or two.
To be honest PlayStation has very few few QUALITY games for younger kids. I have a list of games Best PlayStation 3 Games for Kids: PS3 Games for Boys and Girls so please check out as well.
Best PlayStation 3 Games for Boys
Updated Sept. 2013
SSX is WAY more fun than it sounds- its a a vdeio game that features you and ream mates as a snowboarder. Boys LOVE this game. This is tops in my books because it os one of the few non-viloent video games that boys actually like to play.
Puppeteer – Playstation 3. VERY excited to see this game finally come out. There hasnt been and exciting new PS3 game concet out in a long time and this one is a reall keepr. It is a bit dark and twisted but both and girls will love it. Adults also enjoy.
is silly fun for both girls and boys and one of the Love this game- I think its one of best PlayStation 3 game franchises. Great for boys AND girls. Also good for family nights.
Rocksmith I have mentioned in other video game post and I think its a great concept.You can plug in a real electric guitar and home you skills while you play. Excellent game and of of the best PS3 games for boys that has come out this year.
If you don’t have electric guitar you can by the more expensive Rocksmith Guitar Bundle which comes with a working electric guitar. If he liked Rockband he will LOVE Rocksmith.
Batman: Arkham City is dark and teen rated. This is not the Batman of Adam West days- much more The Dark Knight, I do not recommend for younger boys but 12 and up will love it. The graphics and story line are excellent. The gameplay is well thought out and this will likely be rated as one of the best games released this year. Also consider the earlier version where Joker takes over the Asylum… Batman Arkham Asylum
Spider-man: The Edge of Time deserves a mention while on a Super Hero kick. This is also rated T for Teen and for kids 12+ years old.
Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 features popular comic book characters- Go to battle with 50 of Capcom and Marvel heroes and villains . Boys 8+ will enjoy this game as well as teenagers.
A very good superheroes game for PS3 is Marvel Ultimate Alliance (PS3) This is a 1 or more player game and has great graphics and good gameplay. How can you go wrong with Spider-man and friends? This game is also good for younger kids (Boys 8-12) Solid bet for and one of my picks for best PlayStation 3 Games for boys.
More Best PS3 Games for Boys
A great choice if you are buying a PS3 game for boy is Lego Star Wars: Complete Saga Familiar characters, not too violent and challenging enough for most ages. Also can play up to 4 players and is a co-operative game.
Another PS3 game from the Lego series to take a look at is LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7
A solid bet is Lego Batman if you are looking for a good PS3 game for boys. It is surprising well made and game play is excellent. I also enjoyed watching the fun :-)
