Super Smash Bros. UltimateRated E10+
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate feels like a museum designed to celebrate itself. The game boasts every playable character in the series’ history plus a couple new ones for over 65 characters in its roster.

Red Dead Redemption 2Rated M
Red Dead Redemption 2 is an open-world, narrative-driven experience. It’s a prequel set 12 years before the first game. There will be several different versions of the game: Standard, Special, and Ultimate and PlayStation gamers will receive exclusive bonus content not offered on Xbox. The first game featured a multiplayer mode, and this could be the key to keeping players hooked on the game in a similar vein as GTA V. With intense violence, strong language, nudity, strong sexual content, and use of drugs, you decide if he should play.

The addictive online multiplayer mode is what is drawing so many players into the community. Parents should know that the game is rated for mature audiences with adult content, nudity, drug use and extreme graphic violence, which is not appropriate for 13 year old boys, but they are going to want to play it.
Battlefield VRated M
Set during WWII, there are a ton of changes to make Battlefield V the deepest and most immersive in the series. First, Grand Operations is the successor of the Operations game mode in the original Battlefield. The weapons will feature more predictable behavior so you can learn them easily. You can build structures, fortify, and even destroy buildings. Subclasses will be added, player progression will be much deeper, and there will even be a battle royale mode. The game contains intense violence, blood and gore, and strong language and is only intended for mature players.

It’s a no-brainer purchase for Switch owners and fun for all ages.
God of WarRated M
God of War is a nonstop whirlwind of emotions and bloody action. It’s a masterful composition of exceptional interlocking parts. Its design pays off in unexpected ways in both the gameplay and storyline. Kratos has been thoughtfully reimagined. Most notably, there are a couple stellar boss fights that do a fantastic job of showcasing Kratos’s God-level strength. We expected great action from God of War and it delivers that handily, but we didn’t expect it to be a thrilling journey in which every aspect complements the others to form a masterpiece that is by far the most stirring and memorable game in the series. Its world is vibrant and thoughtfully constructed and packed to the brim with secrets to uncover. The game is centered around a tale that revolutionizes a one-note character into one of gaming’s greats. It’s a must-have for PS4 owners.

The presentation is solid yet again with dynamic crowds, play-by-play commentary and amazingly rendered stadiums that capture the essence of their real-world counterparts. An authentic UEFA Champions League mode will be featured this year. Although improvements have been made to the gameplay, it still doesn’t accurately capture the subtleties of the game. Nevertheless, it’s still a fun multiplayer game and I’d love playing a pickup game any day.
Overwatch: Game of the Year EditionRated T
While he may want to play M-rated shooters, Overwatch is our favorite first person shooter for 13 year old boys.
