My kids usually want to play the current week's game all their friends play at school, usually some bad free mobile game (not rarely I have to uninstall some too shitty ad-infested gambling-for-kids masquerading as game).

Minecraft is something they keep coming back to of course. At least whenever there is a new release. Or when they hear about some fun mod.

My 10 yo just started to learn godot (from Kidscancode tutorials) and he loves it so far (so do I). Tried Scratch with him and his sister ~2 years ago but we all got pretty tired of dragging around boxes to program after a few hours. Human Resource Machine worked for ~8yo (the first few levels at least) but visual programming to actually get work done is not great.

Some old games in emulators have actually worked amazingly well. My kids plus friends got really into original NES Bomberman for a while, and games like SMB1 and SMB3 are as fun for anyone now as they ever were, and Kirby of course.

Magic Kinder on Android.
It's a game-app thing that scratches the gaming itch while having some educational traits

I'm a fan of crash bandicoot.. I just finally finished the N sane trilogy, and it rocked. My little cousin loves playing it with me when he comes over. Hope they're working on a new version.

It is good for kids to play online as it helps them to increase their concentrating power but they should also play outside for their overall growth.
Before selecting the game, It also matters how old your children’s are?
I would suggest you Curious George, Wild Kratts, Daniel Tiger and Peg + Cat! , are good games to play with your kid.

Nowadays, kids prefer to play using iPad or phone. My kid loves to play puzzle games. Anything that he can see from the appstore that catches his attention, he'll surely download it.

I'm sure it's been said somewhere in this thread already but the LEGO games are king for this. They're fun, they're funny, they're easy to pick up and play, AND they're all 100% co-op so you can play them with your kids.

As much as you wouldn't like them playing action shooters or some kill to get better games, they are still exposed to that in school and might wanna try them out someday, so to fill the gap of this need, semi-action shooters with animated graphics would be better to get ahead of them.
Minecraft is really a god of the games for the niche, different mods give the learning curve kids need, but your are already playing it so no no..

Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom  looks great even i liked playing it

I used to have a Gameboy advance, don't ask what happened to it.. probably the same thing that happened with my old gaming systems, just disappeared over the years. Gameboy advance is probably the be gaming system for kids, or any Nintendo gaming console as they more focused on games for younger kids.

You can try playing the game Goosebumps. It's a game that takes after the book series. Has a real scary, eerie feeling to it, but overall great game and a definite for kids.

Mario is a great video game for kids as it doesn't have a lot of violence and it's fun and addicting !

addictive should be a deal-breaking property if you're a remotely sane parent

The best game could be knack. Another option would be the indies games but of course they are games with a little less levels.

I would suggest you the fallowing titles: (you can find them on steam):

Deponia
Edna & Harvey
King's Quest
Memoria
The Raven

They are mostly adventure games, but I think your kids would enjoy them. Bye!
