LEGO Lord of the Rings (360, PS3, PC Wii) Really, any LEGO game is good for the family. With 60 different playable characters, there’s plenty of adventure to be had. Allow me to quote one of my favorite lines from the film, as people are wont to do: “...what about second breakfast?” 2 player local co-op [$39.99-$49.99]

Ninja Crash (XBLIG) It has zombies and cheese and ninjas. And also crashes, I presume. 2 player local co-op [$1]

Skylanders Giants (360, PS3, Wii, Wii U) This is one of the hottest games of the season. It’s also one of the most expensive. You have to buy real life physical toys to unlock characters in the game. It’s worth it to watch kids lose their tiny little minds. 2 player local co-op [$49.99 to $74.99]

Tokyo Jungle (PS3) This crazy game let’s you play as an assortment of different animals, from chickens to saber tooth tigers. Survive against your fellow creatures as you hunt, fight, and mate your way through the streets of a desolated Tokyo. 2 player local co-op [$15]
