Suitable video games for children

My grandson has friends who play some inappropriate games but of course he wants to play them too. His parents resisted until last week and downloaded a game popular with some of his school friends. They quickly realised that there is a lot of killing and some not very nice language.

Can anyone recommend games, challenging but fun for an 8year old? I looked at Minecraft, but it seems it's possible for children to go other servers and to see comments from unknown persons, possibly adults.

Any recommendations please in time for Christmas?

obviously it depends on what game console your grandson has but this site is good to check the suitability of games.
