Super Mario Odyssey
Mario has had some of the best family-friendly games for years now, and that’s no different with the Nintendo Switch. Super Mario Odyssey may just be the best game of the system for younger audiences, as it provides them with a rich, imaginative world to explore and have fun in.
Super Mario Odyssey sets Mario on a quest to stop Bowser’s wedding with Peach, and he’s got a new friend named Cappy along for the ride. By throwing Cappy, Mario can capture and take control of different objects and characters in the world, allowing for a ton of variation to gameplay. Odyssey also manages to find that sweet spot of difficulty, providing a challenge with its platforming and puzzling, but never feeling unfair or punishing. The penalty for death is a measly 10 coins, and younger audiences won’t be frustrated with their adventure. Super Mario Odyssey is a joy to play for anyone of any age, but it’s bound to directly appeal to younger gamers just hopping on with the Switch.
