Video Games for 11-12 Year Old Boys

In researching the hottest video games for boys, I looked at the score for each one on metacritic, a website which gives a score out of 100 for video games based on a weighted average of at least four respected critics. I have chosen to only present video games with a metascore of 75 and above. In addition to this, the games shown on this page all have at least an average four star rating at Amazon.

These best selling video games displayed on this page have all been given the E or E10+ rating by the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) and contain content that may be suitable for 10 years of age and up. So these games will be ideally suited to your 11 or 12 year old boy.
