- Switch game choice?
Looking for suggestions please
My boys now 8 and 9 have a Switch and I think its time to add a game to their collection as a shared xmas gift (‘want, need, wear, read, play’ and all that)
Mario Kart of course.. well, I do and they play it.
Portal Nights – play individually sometimes
Lego City, co-op but profile differences in save progress makes arguments but they enjoy the game.
Splatoon – struggle a bit grasping the controls and look mechanics and it wasn’t what I expected (one player or online)
Yoshis world but doesn’t get used often – the shared screen co-op causes arguments if one wants one way and the other doesnt
Couple of cheap soccer and fall flat downloads.
Guess they argue a lot…but gaming doesnt increase the frequency of it 😉

My memorable gaming was Gamegear Sonic the Hedgehog, N64 Goldeneye/MarioKArt/Fifa then ‘serious’ gaming on PC FPS (Quake3, MoH, MoHaa, CoD, Hitman etc) so I’ve no idea about platforms gamesPosted 2 months agosteve-gMember
Another vote for Mario Odyssey. It is technically 2 player but not really but is still the best game on the Switch by a mile.
Super Mario Vs Rabbids is decent with a mix of one and two player modes and some difficult levels unlocked at the end that would entertain adults.
Could grab a cheap year old Fifa if that’s not one you have downloaded.
Minecraft is the latest one that my kid is playing, that was only £20 I think.
Luigi’s Mansion 3 is the next one that he is looking forward to getting
Edit: Smash Bros, how did I forget that one.Posted 2 months agomechanicaldopeSubscriber
how do I persuade the missus he won’t turn into a brain dead zombie? 🙂
Kids are entitled to be allowed to switch off and relax for a while?
Also, being up to date with modern technology in whatever form it takes is important. Might be hard to make a direct correlation but I used to get told off by my parents for wasting time playing Doom 2 / Duke Nukeum 3D. However, my mouse speed and accuracy i built up still serves me well as an office drone today!Posted 2 months agoprawnySubscriber
Another vote for Mario odyssey, we got it with the switch a couple of years ago and it’s great. Fun as two player too and there’s a kid mode if they’re not super hot gamers that makes it a bit more fun.
The Mario and sonic Olympic Games are ace, We’ve got a few on the wii and will almost certainly get the next one, it’s great fun when the weather is crap having a family 4 player game.
@senor j we limit our two to two 30min ‘tickets’ per day, they earn more time by being good (mainly trying new foods at the moment) and they lose time for being buggers. Seems to work, they don’t play on it outside of their allotted time and they value it more when they’re on there.
They’ve started eating loads of different foods too 👍🏻Posted 2 months ago
Hollow Knight is a brilliant game. Metroidvania meets a 2D Dark Souls. I can’t wait for the follow up game that they are working on. How about Nintendo Labo? Seems pretty good and the kids could work together building the pieces needed.
Cup Head is a beautiful looking game, hand drawn in a 1930’s cartoon style with a soundtrack to match. It’s co-op but might make the kids cry as it’s insanely hard.Posted 1 month ago
totally forgot about the Labo. We’ve two. the build up process is great but the games after are a bit average. Lots of folded cardboard stashed in the closet.Posted 1 month ago
I downloaded Unravel Two yesterday, beautiful looking game. Look forwards to seeing how they manage to work together.
Hollow knight looks great and like it would keep them entertained for ages too.. hopefully long enough since Halloween that theyre not quite as nervous of ghosts and monsters 😉
I like the puzzle aspect of Luigi’s Mansion as having at least soem mental challenge aspect has to be beneficial.
