About the Family Gamer Awards

Families are made up of all ages. So our Best Family Game Awards are organised by age groups - infants, juniors, students, workers, parents and seniors. Whether you have XBox 360, PS3, Wii, DS lite and PSP, we have a game to suite you and your family.

Game People is proud to sponsor the Family Gamer Age awards - the only game awards for specific age groups. Out of the hundreds of games that come through our door each month, these few games stood head and shoulders above the rest.

We gather the best family games each season - Spring (May), Summer (August), Autumn (November) and Winter (February). Then we pick our tips for the season's ideal games for each age-group and let our readers vote on to decide which is the overall winner for the year.
