Let’s take a quick look at some of the top games for kids, teens, and adults on the spectrum. Each of these games are played by my Aspie friends.

Thanks guys! You know who you are. 😉

If you are looking for something new and fun to play, these are some of my top picks. If you have some recommendations, be sure to let me know what they are in the comments below!


The official Minecraft trailer.

This colorful world of blocks and exploding enemies can be enjoyable and challenging for people of all ages. With the ability to build and explore, different modes, and tons of add-ons, it makes for endless fun and creativity.

Portal 2

Portal 2 is a puzzle strategy game where you must escape different rooms while listening to a rather insulting and sassy robotic AI.

Once you beat the game, it doesn’t offer much in the way of replay-ability, but it can be incredibly hilarious to play with someone who has never played it before. 

My awesome British friend recorded this funny co-op gameplay video. FYI – He swears a bit, in case you’re sensitive to that.


A Runescape 3 (2018 version) Review

This popular free MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role playing game) that has been around since 2001.

The game has come a long way since it’s first release. It now has much better graphics, better game play, and all kinds of quests and lands to explore to make for countless hours of entertainment.

Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO in 2018

This free mobile game was released in 2016 and it took the world by storm. After the original popularity wore off, the game still has a large worldwide player base.

This year, the game has been picking up steam again with the addition of new features, such as the ability to add friends, exchange gifts, new Alolan and lucky Pokémon, real life events, and new research quests.

Yu-gi-oh Duel Links

In this free-to-play collectible strategy card game, you can play against others or play against the computer.

The game is so popular, the best players compete in a World Championship game.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X

A gameplay video of Microsoft Flight Simulator X.

If you always wanted to fly a plane or a helicopter, this game may be just what you’ve been looking for. 

With amazing graphics, a variety of air craft to choose from, world wide locations with 24,000 airports, different roles, realistic controls, and the ability to control what settings you fly in, this game will keep you flying the skies for hours. 

Hand Simulator 

For teens and adults looking for a laugh, this game is awesome. It is intended to be frustrating, but at the same time it’s absolutely hilarious!

You can try to handle different weapons, milk a cow, spin a fidget spinner, go fishing, take part in a Mexican duel, and more.

The frustrating part of the game is trying to learn how to control your hands with awkward controls. A version of this game is also available for free on Android and iOS.

Due to the large amount of profanity in all of the gameplay videos I found, I am not including one for this game.

  1. How about Undertale? Not only is it a fun game, play it pacifist & you learn many ways to make new friends. It’s like a fun lesson on how to be social!
