If you’re looking for a teen-rated gift for a loved one, or you’re a teen yourself looking to give something new a try (and your parents won’t let you play mature-rated games… at least openly), take a look at these tried-and-tested ideas.
Note: This collection features games that achieve a “Teen” ESRB rating in the United States, and while it should correspond to a “Teen” rating in most other markets, it may differ per region.
While the good stuff tends to reside in the mature-rating bracket, there’s still tons of great fun to be had with generally more wholesome, age-appropriate stuff. Final Fantasy XV is a great example of a teen-friendly story with plenty of drama and suspense, while games like Overwatch continue to be fast-paced co-op competitive fun.
