If you have children, lots of things are more fun done with them than without them. Particularly, their first times doing anything – riding a bike, kicking a ball, eating an ice cream. The reaction of a child is so all encompassing, so engrossing, that it reminds you what it was once like to be one yourself – and so your enjoyment of whatever you are doing is enhanced.
There are some things you almost can’t do without a child – like going to the cinema to see a children’s film, or playing games online. Obviously, you can do any of these things if you want to: but having a child gives you a great excuse to do them, and as noted the enjoyment of that child enhances your own enjoyment too.
You have to be careful which online action games you choose to play with a child. Doom is not suitable; Resident Evil is not suitable; in fact any game where blood and guts are the staple diet of the visuals is probably too much. Plenty of online action games carry 18 certification for these reasons – a habit that stems back to the late 1980s, when carnage filled arcades like the legendary Splatter House started making parents question what their children were being exposed to inside those big beeping boxes.
Ben 10 Games
Ben 10 games provide a great way to enjoy action games with a child, without fear of anything untoward spoiling the fun. That’s because Ben 10 is itself a program aimed squarely at kids – so the content of the online action game will be perfectly acceptable for any child who likes the program.
As a general rule, playing online action games with kids is a matter of choosing the right source. There are hundreds of online games based on cartoons and cartoon characters – which means you can be sure of choosing titles suitable for everyone playing no matter what their ages are.
Cartoons most suited to online action games have action in themselves. So for the best online action games you need to head to cartoons like Ben 10 or the Power Puff Girls, where the cartoon action your children already know from the TV show is simply transposed to the computer screen.
Playing Ben 10 games online can be done in two basic ways – you either download the game you want to play with your child, or you stream it. Downloading is potentially safer, because you then know what is being played, and you don’t get any nasty surprises about the amount of data your contracts are sucking up for online gaming.
If you play with a child, it is probably better to play on a PC or laptop anyway, where the larger screen size means two people can enjoy the same game without any trouble. The smaller screen of a handheld device really only works if the games you play are being played as multiplayer over two or more devices. Check your service provider for data details.
