The holidays are quickly approaching and every child will have a wish list. The question is will your gifts be a snore or a score? Well I am here with the help of Best Buy to make sure that your gift hits the mark and is definitely a score! Luckily, I have a little experience thanks to Best Buy hooking me up with the Nintendo Switch.
What sets the Nintendo Switch apart from the other gaming consoles out there? Portability, the Nintendo Switch allows you to play on your TV, outside with the included screen, or as a handheld game system. As a parent this is incredible, it means that I no longer have to purchase a home game system and a portable game system. Which also means that there is no more purchasing duplicate games for each system. When it’s time to hit the road simply grab the Nintendo Switch from the TV docking station, slide the controllers on and head out the door. You wont even lose your place in the game! Playing with two players, not a problem, just pop out the kickstand and both players can keep playing on the go.
Since we know you can play anywhere with the Nintendo Switch, the real question that parents like me want to know is- Since I am only having to buy games for one system, will I save money? With games starting at $4.99, you can definitely save money and if you are an old school gamer like me you can even find some of your childhood go to games. Like: Fatal Fury 2, Samurai Showdown, Double Dragon 4, Ultra Street Fighter 2 and more. So when the kids are out you can have parents game night! It’s OK if you are not interested in throw back games, Nintendo Switch offers a variety of recent releases and exclusive game titles.
