This year’s top trends in software and video games for kids included online gaming and "tech toys," such as guitars that plug into home computers, to enhance the software experience. To help us evaluate these exciting games, 10 "experts" - kids ages 8 to 14 - participated in a Game Design Boot Camp. We helped them to define what they liked and disliked, and to consider how character, setting, design and rules affected their game-playing experience. The following winners emerged from the perspectives of kids who play as well as the researchers who evaluate new technology. We hope your family enjoys these top picks as much as we did!
