Best Online Games For Kids 10 And Up

best online games for kids 10 and up

The games I liked when I was 10 are different from the games my kids like today. Over 50 kids aged 10 and older listed their favorite 10 online games. This is what they chose…

Quick Jump To Survey Results

The best online games for kids 10 and up was a survey in which over 50 kids took part in. The survey participants were made up of my kids, nieces, nephews and all of their friends. While it’s not the most exhaustive survey it did provide an interesting in-site.

How I Got The Top 10

I asked all the kids to list their 10 favorite online games. Most kids had a PlayStation or Xbox but only 11 had a Nintendo Switch, hence the reason the Nintendo games ranked lower. Also, the Switch players all liked other Nintendo games but the two listed were picked more consistently so they made the cut before other Nintendo titles.

Interestingly enough, a lot of kids liked and played games that were meant for older audiences. See my “Video Games Rating” article here. There were a few mentions like GTA 5, PUBG and even Mortal Kombat 11! All of these mentions came from kids younger than the recommended age rating of the video game. I’ll look at this more in-depth in a later article.

And Here’s The Survey Results

One – Fortnite

Do I need to say anymore? Fortnite is the insanely popular battle royal game that has grown exponentially since its first inception back in 2017. Featuring online multiplayer with 100 player lobbies, Fortnite is a Third-Person Shooter where the last person/team standing wins. It incorporates building mechanics with fast-paced comic-styled shooting and is rated PEGI 12. Fortnite is free to play, but players can purchase cosmetics in-game

You can download this game for free on your selected device.


Two – Minecraft

A sandbox-style game, Minecraft lets players (local and online) explore, traverse, destroy and create almost anything they want inside a 3D generated world. Freedom of creation, limited only by the player’s imagination, is the real magic behind Minecraft. This is one of the main reasons kids and adults love the game so much. Minecraft is suitable for all ages.


Three – Rocket League

Rocket League is a hectic mash-up between small racing cars and oversized soccer balls. Created by Psyonix, players team up online in two opposing teams of four playing a game of futuristic soccer using their Rocket cars to maneuver the ball. The team who scores the most goals in the allotted time frame wins the game.

Four – Apex Legends

Apex Legends is a first-person online battle royal shooter. It has game lobbies of 60 players and is free to download and play like Fortnite. Apex Legends first launched in early 2019 and quickly rose to prominence with its sleek and mostly bug-free gameplay. It was also the first battle royal to have teams of three with characters that had unique in-game abilities.

This game is rated PEGI 16, but was still listed by a lot of kids younger than that.

Five – Human Fall Flat

This is a gem among indie games. Human Fall Flat uses unique (and hard to control) in-game physics which makes its exploration and puzzle-solving a difficult yet hilarious adventure. Play solo or with friends to complete seemingly simple dreamscapes where the objective is to get out alive.

Seven – Lego Worlds

Lego Worlds is the first Lego game that really endeavors to give its players the ultimate freedom with their Lego creations. Think Minecraft meets Lego, in this 3d sandbox adventure game that’s limited only by a player’s imagination.
