Nostalgia for the New Generation: Retro Games Kids Will Love

Interested in playing some of your childhood games with your little one? Some retro games may still be appealing to kids today, while others would look too basic. Here’s a list of a few games that kids from future generations are likely to embrace.

When it comes to kids, you won’t necessarily appreciate the idea of an intense shooter, but Splatoon 2 is slightly different. It’s cool, colorful, and features some cute and funny monsters. It’s childish, but it’s also fast-paced and can keep your little one entertained for hours. Moreover, it’s safe and fun, rather than aggressive and bloody like Fortnite or Call of Duty series.

Super Mario 3D World

Super Mario 3D World is the type of game that will never go out of fashion. It’s colorful, and intense and gives you plenty of choices. Controls are fairly intuitive and the better your kid gets, the more they’ll discover. It’s designed with cooperative play in mind, so you can also play this game with your kid and spend some quality time together.

Similar to many Mario games, Rayman Legends will most likely stick around forever. It’s not just fun, but it’ll also boost your little one’s creativity. It’s an inventive game that requires a bit of brain, but it does everything in a funny and exciting manner. Besides, there’s cooperative play as well. It has a good difficulty curve, yet your kid may still ask you for help every now and then.




If your baby seems to get quickly bored with traditional Lego, perhaps it’s time to bring in the next generation in terms of gaming and that’s Minecraft. Believe it or not, Minecraft is also used as a training tool in some schools. It will keep your little one hooked in, but it will also trigger their creativity. Plus, it’s simple, colorful, and easy to play, also available in many ROMs online.

Rocket League


Rocket League is not just for kids, but it could be an excellent time killer for grownups as well. You can probably find plenty of online ROMs. At the beginning, the game is great for kids, but with time, it gets more complicated. Besides, your kid should be able to read or you’ll need to help out. It offers split screen multiplayer gaming as well.





You can’t go wrong with Snipperclips, especially since it’s also cooperative on the same screen, ideal for sharing with your kid. It’s intense and very fast paced and it requires teamwork. You two will end up giving each other instructions and laughing whenever something goes wrong. And yes, there are plenty of things that could go wrong, but in a fun manner.




Spelunky is the type of game that takes cartoon violence and makes it fun and sweet. It’s an adventure you can undergo with your little one. It’s split in more chapters or parts and it’s easily accessible, regardless of your little one’s gaming experience. It’s one of the few games out there where failing won’t put you off. How cool is that?
