    Evening all,

    Does anyone have any suggestions for xbox live games for kids?

    They are all under 9 and I have recently signed them up for live but dont have any kids games (they like the idea of being able to talk and play with other kids around the world etc!)

    Cheers!

    I'd be careful with that, there are a lot of idiots on Xbox live. Who swear quite a lot.

    Yea I did think of that but apparently you can put it on family settings which apparently cut some of that out.

    Thats why I am looking at specific kids games as they are less likely to have fools on (maybe.......)

    I've never tried them, but do the family settings actually do much? If they stop me meeting up with foul mouthed kids I might play around with them!

    I guess for the content within a game they will work, ie take out blood and gore etc, but I imagine for xbox live they are as good as the 'Recreation', 'Pro' and 'Underground' system, ie completely ineffective.

    To be honest this is why I got live for them (they love the game and wanted to play it online). Having now tried to play it on live it turns out there isnt actually much they can do............ Probably should have checked before spending £80!!

    Quite a few members have kids. Maybe some of them could play online with your little 'uns.

    I don't know which members have children, I know Alun does, maybe you could ask him.
