Here are 6 video games that tweens will love and teens should enjoy also. However, this year, instead of recommending more mature games for teens, which they will just buy for themselves, I think they would love to get some great gaming gear as a holiday gift.

In TriForce Heroes, 3 players take on the role of individual Link characters and team up to work cooperatively, to solve puzzles and battle bosses in dungeons.

The LEGO DIMENSIONS Starter Pack has everything you need to set out on epic mash-up adventures filled with iconic worlds and unlikely allies as you’ve never seen them before.

There’s a whole multiverse of puzzles to solve, and challenges and enemies to face, and when you’re ready for more, collect level, team & fun packs to expand your collection. Use whatever minifigure with whichever vehicle or gadget – go ahead… break the rules!
