The Family That Plays Together, Stays Together

For years, family game nights have been a great opportunity for parents and kids to spend some fun, quality time together. If your kids would rather play video games over board games you might want to check out Xbox's new Family Game Night.

The latest Xbox 360 gaming community, Family Game Night, will spotlight a new family friendly game every Tuesday on And just because the kids happen to be away at college doesn't mean they can't get in on the family gathering also. With Xbox Live, you can play UNO with Johnny in Philly, trade piƱatas with Susie in San Diego or challenge Grandpa in Great Falls with Project Gotham Racing 3!

Of course you don't need an Xbox to play video games with your kids. The Nintendo Wii has some of the best family fun titles and second generation systems like the PS2 and GameCube still have some of the greatest games ever created. So why not take a look at your kids game collection and pick your own night for a Family Game Night.
