Home | Best PS3 Move Family Games

The Family Gamer Awards FGA suggests ideal Xbox 360 PS3 Move Games for different family age-groups: Infants, Juniors, Students, Workers, Parents and Seniors.

These awards complement PEGI's age-appropriate ratings by suggesting games each age group will enjoy. Rather than warning families about which games are inappropriate, we suggest which games each age group will get the most out of.

The games awarded for infants for example, not only contain appropriate content for 3 year olds but are also easy enough for them to play and enjoy.

Here we list the PS3 Move games that have been recomended for families in the Family Gamer Awards.

PS3 Move Games for Infants (3 to 6 yrs)
The best games for toddlers, very-young children and pre-school kids from 3 to 6 years old. These games work with the basics of play and should easily engage the super young players in our families. Simple and easy controls and bright colours engage young players in some educational and informative games.

Just Dance 4
Buy:
UK US
Just Dance 4: Just Dance 4 not only adds new dances and choreography but also brings that in four player style to the PS3 and 360. Add to this the Wii U version that enables a fifth player to take charge of the choreography with the puppet master mode and you have the most all-age-friendly of family games.

LittleBigPlanet Karting
Buy:
UK US
LittleBigPlanet Karting: This builds on ModNation Racers by injecting not only LittleBigPlanet's style and swagger but also its more open world of course creation and sharing. Although not quite as tight as MarioKart it will appeal to both junior and teen kart fans.

Epic Mickey 2
Buy:
UK US
Epic Mickey 2: Although a PEGI 3 the layered story and platforming difficulty fits this better to a 7+ Junior and Teen audience. Similar to the Lego games and adding in co-operative play to the original, it's interesting that this works as well on PS3 Move, Wii, 360 or WiiU. More than novel controls, or beautifully drawn story scenes, it's the ability to choose to befriend or fight enemies that makes this particularly interesting for families to play.

The best games for secondary, high-school, teenagers, adolescent kids and young-adults aged from 12 to 17 years old. These games provide thrilling experiences that major on brash, loud protagonists and aim to connect with the teens in our families.

Child of Eden

Child of Eden: The combination of music movement and shooting creates an experience perfect for teen and student players. Whether on the more recent PS3 Move release or breakthrough 360 Kinect version, Child of Eden is a rare combination of motion controls and hardcore gameplay.

Tumble
Buy:
UK US
Tumble: The accuracy and depth perception of the Move control makes this Jenga stacking puzzle game perfect for students. Multiplayer alone is worth the price of entrance, as players take it in turns to stack blocks and earn points.

Sports Champions
Buy:
UK US
Sports Champions: The PlayStation 3's Wii-Sports type game. But with the Move control's accuracy and depth perception this is one for student gamers. Table tennis and archery stand out in multiplayer contests, but it's honing skills in the single player that offers the best value here.

PS3 Move Games for Workers (18 and over)
The best games for those with full time jobs, workers, 9-to-5-ers, employed hard-core gamers 18 years and over. These games provide more of a challenge in both dexterity and problem solving. They are often more about strong single player experiences that hard working hard core gamers. Although these are often longer experiences that are also ideal to switch off and chill out after a long day at the office.
PS3 Move Games for Parents
The best games for parents, mums, dads, carers, aunties and uncles. These games connect with the gamer on a more mature level. Story driven and often open ended, the experiences here provide space to play with complex issues and engage in moral dilemmas. Either that or to escape the grind of the work/home balance.

Heavy Rain
Buy:
UK US
Heavy Rain: For parents wanting to engage in something a little more emotionally taxing this is perfect. A branching story that generates real moments of emotion and decision. At only nine hours long it's also ideal for time strapped mums and dads. Move controls add novelty if you have them, but are by no means essential.

PS3 Move Games for Grandparents
The best games for grandparents, older, senior, grown-up, mature, retired and wiser people. These games provide a slightly slower, although no less challenging experience. Time and consideration are of the essence as our most senior gamers enjoy interacting with other players and perfecting their approach.

Unfinished Swan
Buy:
UK US
Unfinished Swan: This unusual first person puzzle adventure on the PS3, not only looks fascinating but has simple Move controls and a mature story to engage grandparent gamers looking for something to play on the PlayStation.

Tiger Woods 11
Buy:
UK US
Tiger Woods 11: We tried to avoid this, looking to the PS3 Move version or John Daly for competition, but the Wii is still the definitive golf game. With MotionPlus support and a first person view this year, it is about as realistic (and as difficult) a golf game as you could want.

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.

What sort of gamer are you?

Our columnists each focus on a particular perspective and fall into one of the following types of gamers:
