We are buying DS10 and DD8 an XBox 1 for Christmas as a joint present. DS has asked for the Fifa game, which comes with the XBox, but I am struggling to find a game for DD to buy in addition.

She likes princesses but is not opposed to fighting games. I wondered if anyone could recommend a game please?

Minecraft? My daughter is 10 and loves it. She plays it with her friend who is 8.

Minecraft, Roblox, skylanders and terraria are the biggest games in this house. Personally, I like the lego range of games - lego star wars etc. For princesses you could try Disney infinity.

Op we have also got the xbox one it was £199 special offer on amazon and tesco - i reckon it will go down again on black friday.

the bundle we got includes three games.

Dance Central Spotlight, Kinect Sports Rivals, and Zoo Tycoon

In addition we have got dd ( 9) Disney infinity starter set, which is star wars, ( have read its a great game) Disney infinity Inside Out play set
( game again has been highly rated) some Disney infinity figures, the toy box expansion games. I believe from what I have read, the toy box part of Disney infinity is the best part as you can create your own world like minecraft. As DI is now cancelled by Disney I thought I would get enough of it - to keep her going for a while....

in addition, we have got the minecraft game.

I am also going to hang back on some DI stuff for Easter. I hope the whole lot will keep her going for a year! shock

I think Disney infinity and Lego Star Wars (and the other Lego games) are good ones for the 2 of them to play together.

My daughters (10&7) love Minecraft! They also do a minecraft story mode but they prefer the original, they like the Lego marvel game too. They love (are addicted to!!) playing roblox but you have to buy that online not an actual game that I'm aware of. They hated Disney infinity so I haven't tried the Lego dimensions but that does look a lot better. They like just dance and just sing too which are great for the whole family to play but if I'm honestly it's predominately minecraft they play.

If you want a driving game forza is great, did 9 loves it. Also if she likes Harry Potter the Harry Potter Lego game is great.
