Top Ten Xbox Games for Family Fun

I will admit, I’ve been a been Amish when it has come to gaming systems and my kids, in part because I still had visions of what video games looked like when I was a kid. (Which was a long time ago). However, we recently got to try the Xbox 360 with Kinect system and I have changed my tune. The “sit on the sofa with a joystick and a glazed stare” games are a thing of the past. Xbox 360 with Kinect offers a host of games that get kids moving.  Rather than being an isolating activity, many games are great as a fun family activity.  Here are some of the best games for family time.
