With the recent release of the Xbox One, there has not been a better time to pick up some Xbox 360 games. Most online stores now have very large reductions in original price and picking up some of these games for your child can save you a large amount of money while still getting some great titles. Depending on the child’s age, many of these games will still be hugely entertaining for them. However it is more likely that the older the child is, the more likely they are to want the most up-to-date titles. Nevertheless, series of games such as Lego Lord of the Rings can be great fun for both children and adults. If the kid is slightly older, consider looking at some of the all-time greats which have been released over the last several years. Games like Fallout 3, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and Red Dead Redemption have won a number of awards and despite being aging titles they are still considered some of the best titles out there and would be well worth a discount purchase. As with all shopping, research a little, shop around and find the best deals and you can still make the most out of your Xbox 360 without having to spend £400+ on the next generation and games.
