Looking for games your kids can play within the Xbox Games Pass library? Let's take a look at the best kids games available on Xbox Games Pass, including classic games like Banjo-Kazooie or more explorative and immersive titles like LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, which combines the entire sage into one downloadable package.

Sometimes it can be tough finding the right game to either play with your kids or leave them to their own devices playing, but thankfully there are tons of options available on Xbox Games Pass. Some of the best games on the platform for kids are from the LEGO series with numerous versions available for play. In addition to Star Wars, fans can pick up LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures and take on the role of Indiana Jones and his allies in this detailed game honoring the film franchise. Other games like Sea of Thieves might be more to an older kid's liking as it lets them take command of a pirate ship as they cruise across the open world ocean to steal booty and sink ships that cross their path! All the titles on this list are kid-friendly in the sense that they're fairly easy to play and don't have gratuitous violence.

Vote up the fun Xbox Games Pass kids games you think other parents would want their children playing!
