Best LEGO Xbox One Game: 'LEGO: The Incredibles'
In the Xbox One game "LEGO: The Incredibles," kids play as a LEGO-built member of the Parr family from Disney/Pixar's The Incredibles and The Incredibles 2. The characters engage in battle, solve puzzles and unlock new characters. The combat is mild — there is no gore, defeated characters' LEGO pieces just fall apart. Recommended for ages 6 and older.

Best Xbox One Game for Little Kids: 'Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2'
"Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2" is an Xbox One shooter game that pits plants against zombies, but the cartoonish characters and silly-looking weapons make this game pretty benign as far as violence goes. The game does allow online play against other players, so parents should monitor that carefully. Recommended for ages 6 and up. ($29; amazon.com)
Best Dance Game: 'Just Dance 2019'
"Just Dance 2109" is the latest in a series of hit video games for Xbox One. Players download a free app on their smartphone to hold in their hand as a sensor while the game plays and they imitate dance moves. At the end of the dance, the player will be scored with information from the sensor. The game features hit Top 40 songs and is personalized to record playing information and make game suggestions. This package comes with a free month of Just Dance Unlimited, which gives kids access to over 400 additional songs. Recommended for ages 8 and older. ($40; amazon.com)shop it now
Best Minecraft Game for Xbox One: 'Minecraft Master Edition'
"Minecraft" is definitely one of the most popular video games for kids right now, and this "Master Edition" comes with the base game and 1,000 minecoins, which are in-game currency that lets the player buy fun add-ons. "Minecraft" has a "Create" mode that allows players to build nearly anything they can imagine and an "Adventure" mode that allows for hero vs. villain gaming. The game itself has nothing inappropriate, but online multi-gamer capabilities call for extra parental monitoring. Recommended for ages 8 and older. ($30; amazon.com)shop it now

This Xbox One game is a first-person shooter game that ties in elements from Star Wars films like Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

Best Sports Video Game: 'FIFA 19'
This is the latest installment in a long-running series of "FIFA" soccer video games.

Best Video Game for Tweens: 'Skylanders: Imaginators'

Best Action Game for Xbox One: 'Sea of Thieves'
"Sea of Thieves" is a pirate-themed Xbox One simulation game that relies on multiple players to band together and sail on treasure hunting adventures that involve a lot of looting and battle. The violence isn't gory, but the weapons are realistic and the multiplayer online-play isn't moderated, so there may be inappropriate commentary from other players. Recommended for ages 12 and older. ($60; amazon.com)shop it now
Best Video Game for Big Kids: 'Fortnite'
This Xbox One game is an action game where players battle in single-player mode using strategy. It's the most violent game on the list, but the scenes aren't gory. This original version of "Fortnite" is followed up by "Fortnite: Battle Royale," which is a free mobile game where up to 100 online players are pitted against one another. The original "Fortnite" is a great introduction and doesn't rely on online, multiplayer gaming. Recommended for ages 12 and older. ($60; walmart.com)shop it now
