Sonic still has to go fast in Sonic Frontiers, though this time around the blue hedgehog finds himself in a much more open world. This world is filled with short puzzles that require clever thinking, skillful gameplay, or a combination of both. Although a single-player experience, Sonic Frontiers benefits from multiple people trying to beat time trials and solve puzzles.

While the apocalypse setting may seem dark, Stray’s focus on a cat’s adventure through troubled environments is ultimately charming. Much of the gameplay involves trial and error puzzle action, although there is occasionally an intense chase sequence where an adult may have to take over!

Stray is a short game and is therefore ideal for short but sweet Thanksgiving evenings. It’s also included in PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium subscriptions, making it easy to access.

Worship of the Lamb

A game about a cult might not feel “family friendly,” but aside from some fantasy violence, Cult of the Lamb is actually a wholesome village sim crossed with a roguelike dungeon crawler. I can imagine an older player navigating the dungeon experience and then letting the younger player design the village.

Lego Brick Tales

Players can get creative with the solutions they build, which takes creativity, while puzzles can often require careful thought. It’s also a relaxing experience, which makes Bricktales ideal for unwinding after an exciting day of celebrations.
