Best Sports Games Rated General (G) and Younger on Xbox One

When we think of sports things like football, rugby, running and boxing spring to mind. Along with simulated these physical sports, video games extend the sporting genre in different directions.

Some games, like Pyre use the sports setting and aesthetic for a futuristic narrative that spins off into adventure or role play. Others, like Rocket League iterate on traditional sports by adding new elements or combining previously separate disciplines.

There are sports games, like Skate that focus on the rush and thrill of sporting participation, while others like Football Manager stick to simulating a particular sport in minute detail.

Finally, some video games create their own sporting challenge where esports athletes spend hours practising and honing their skills to compete in hugely popular online competition.
