Mother’s day is coming up, and in honor of it, we’re going to celebrate moms in gaming! None of us would be where we are today without our mothers. And if there is anything video game and action adventure have taught us, much like real life, we owe a lot to our mothers. So here are our top 5 picks of the awesome moms in video games starting with number 5 and then ending with 1.
#5 Pokemon Mom
The mothers in Pokemon are much like you; they want you to be the very best. They’re willing to let their ten-year-old child go off on their own adventure to capture stray animals. They travel to battle within stadiums far and wide, hurrying them to the door to make their dreams come true! Come to think of it, they could either be known as one of the coolest moms in the video game world or the most irresponsible. Either way, your pokemon mom is there to support you in your endeavors. They’re your financial advisor in Pokemon Silver and Gold and, if you visit your mother from Pokemon Red and Blue, she’ll remark about how much she missed your character and how proud she is of you.
#4. Clementine, The Walking Dead Game
In Season 2 of The Walking Dead Game, Clementine becomes one of the caretakers of baby AJ, whose biological mother dies. By Season 3, she’s already playing the surrogate mother role to AJ. And she doesn’t just serve as AJ’s mother. By Season 4, she admits to feeling like a mother for the entire group. Clementine goes to dangerous lengths to protect AJ and seek out medical attention for him. Her motherly instincts eventually drive her to become the lead caretaker for the group through their adventures. Mothers are our first teachers of what is right and what is wrong. They remind us of what being human means and consists of. It not only means taking care of each other and being mindful, but also never giving up in the face of the harsh realities that life brings upon us. No one personifies that more than Clementine.
#3 Ness’s Mother in Mother Series: Mother 2 EarthBound
Ness’s mother ensures that he eats, has a warm bed to sleep in, and equips him with what he needs. When he leaves his mother’s house, he is empowered with full strength. Moreover, she is an integral component in saving the world! When Ness gets homesick, his mother comforts him on the phone. Without her support, Ness risks losing in battle with little strength. A theory amongst avid gamers suggests that she may be Ana from the first Mother game, who carries the same weapon and has the same hair color. Overall, Ness’s mother embodies a strong woman who cares for her child and supports him in his endeavors.
#2. Sophitia, Soul Calibur Series
Sophitia is the mother of Patroklos and Pyrrha. She is an Athenian who fights on behalf of the Greek God, Hephaestus, to regain Soul Edge. Sophitia wants nothing more than to keep her children safe from the corrupting force of the Soul Edge sword. However, her daughter Pyrrha, drawn to its power, became influenced by the blade’s evil energy to the point where she could no longer survive without it. This dark sword, the cause of all her suffering, was now the only way her children could go on. Sophitia faces a strenuous moral decision, however, she chooses to stop any righteous warrior who comes to destroy the blade. You might think she’s selfish to put her children before the fate of the world, but when you’re a mother, your children ARE your world. Sophitia is a tragic hero, but as far as mothers go, she’s one of the most badass in video games.
#1. The Boss in Metal Gear Universe
The Boss, known as “The Mother of Special Forces,” is the mother of the Revolver Ocelot. Some mothers show their love by supporting them, some by disciplining them, some by challenging them, pushing them towards greatness. They share a common theme: When you’re child walks out the door to face the world, you want to make sure that they are stronger, smarter, and capable of tackling the challenges that face them. The Boss does that and more. Even after her death, she continues to have a massive presence in the game. For these reasons, The Boss tops her competitors as the coolest mom in video games!

Get a game that the whole family can play together like Just Dance or Mario Party. Your mom will appreciate a game that brings the family together for a night of fun. It may be such a hit you’ll be inspired to start a regular family game night. Gaming is a fun group activity that’s always a great way to bond as a family.
Show your mom how much you appreciate her by taking her down memory lane with a classic board game she loved as a kid. Find out what her game of choice was, maybe Monopoly or Clue, order it online and voila. Sharing the experience she had as a child with her children is a thoughtful gift she’ll cherish forever.
If you aren’t sure what to get Mom this year get her a gift card to her preferred gaming system’s store. This way you don’t have to worry about getting a game she already has or might not like.

Mother’s day is just around the corner, which means that moms all across the country are anticipating the classic gifts: chocolate, flowers, and burnt breakfast in bed. More than that, they’re looking forward to spending some quality time with their families. Who could ask for more?
Kids love the day just as much as you do. They get to celebrate their favorite person in the world, after all. To help kick things off, we’ve compiled some of our favorite activities to celebrate the day with your kids.
1. Arts and Crafts
There’s a lot of fun DIY arts and crafts projects that you can make with your kids. You can paint, bake, or even go on a bug safari. Break out the construction paper and get them to make mother’s day cards or paper mache flowers for you (or other family members).
2. Video Games
Video games are a fun and engaging way to play with your children. There are so many options of consoles and games that are built for group play, and really foster a fun environment. There can be some serious quality time snuggled up on the couch while playing a game.
Our recent favorite is the newly launched Nintendo Switch. It is a great choice for family bonding activities. The console features a broad variety of games and is sure to have something for everyone — including mom. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a great game to play with the whole family with its fun multiplayer options.
3. Day Trip
You don’t have to spend a fortune on a vacation. Take a day trip to a local art or history museum. Or, find a nice park, pack a lunch, and have a picnic. Just don’t feed the ducks! Bread makes them sick.
4. Board Games
Board games are making a serious comeback. Break out the games & snacks, and have an all day game-a-thon with classics like Clue, Life, or that one where you get pied in the face. They’re board games, not bored games, so feel free to get a little silly with it.
Mother’s day is a great time to share some memories with your kids. Watch some old home movies or share pictures of your childhood. Take a trip down memory lane and blow their minds with the fact that you were a kid once, too. They’re sure to get a thrill out of the pre-smartphone era.
