Who doesn’t partake in a Steam Sale summer? I mean as a gaming dad I remember the Steam sales being much more lucrative than today, but it’s still a great chance to pick up some hidden gems.
That being said, I won’t be adding to my backlog, but rather consider games that my kids might want. Or better yet, get some games that we will both enjoy and talk about. Some ones I have in mind are City Skylines (for the Sim City aspect), oldies like Age of Empires or even dabble in some Civilization.
Yes, those examples mentioned are some pretty hard games for any kid under 10, but it’s more about learning mechanics, introducing math, strategy and decision-making, while having a bit of fun.. and no nuking foes with Gandhi.
