Nintendo Parental Controls

Your kids want video games.

You’re cool with it, too. But maybe you don’t want the little ones playing “Fortnite,” “PUBG” or anything where they’ll be shooting someone, seeing lots of gore or being freaked out by creepy homicidal teddy bears. (Anyone else as terrified by “Five Nights at Freddy’s” as we are?)

So get the parental controls on your gaming console worked out and check out these video games — a few are very new and a few are newish — that you can feel good about picking up for your kids.
