For starters most of these games you can buy for all the popular consoles such as: Xbox, Play Station, and PC. One important concept when buying games is to make sure you buy the right game for the right console. I once bought a xbox game for somebody with a play station haha….ya it didn’t work and we had to return it for the correct gaming console. So learn from my mistakes!
Below is our list of the hottest teen games. I actually got the inside school from my little brother who 16 and is in the know!
Hottest Video Games of 2017:
- Call of Duty WWII
- Destiny 2
