OK so mama 315 plays lots of games on her tablet, and is constantly complaining loudly about the various paywalls she runs into. She plays typical, simple mom games - mahjong, crosswords, God forbid, slot machines...

But I know there are switch games out that with a little effort can be learned. I'd say Mario Kart is a great game to jump in with. I'm thinking also Pokémon Let's Go because she really liked Go on her phone. Kirby was an absolute breeze...

She'll play a single game forever, I just have to find one that she will genuinely like and have an easy time getting into (minimal menus and forced options). Obviously she's not gonna be mastering super meat boy or anything soon, but what are some mom (big kid) friendly games out for the switch that you can think of?

I was thinking of Mario Party but I dunno how much she'd get into that. The random and changing nature of the games might be too much for her.

I wish so much animal crossing was coming for Xmas! If I can get her into the switch by then I'll buy her a copy without second thought.

What about Puyo Puyo Tetris or Soldnam? Puzzle games seem Mom friendly. Or that Wheel of Fortune/Jeopardy pack, if she likes game shows?

I was thinking tetris 99 maybe. Idk how well she'd do with puyo puyo... Only because I personally suck at it haha.

Yeah she may like that game show pack. I'll check that out too. I think there's a monopoly game?

I'm wondering about good and simple indies. I'd try stardew but not as a first game, that one can get overwhelming I think. Trying to think of lrg stuff but coming up blank.

Wouldn't Tetris 99 be throwing her to the wolves?

Also what about any of the NES/SNES titles?

Cooking Mama: Cookstar would be a good choice: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2019/0 ... s_revealed

It's supposed to release at some point this year, but the date hasn't been confirmed yet (and it might be pushed back into 2020, like Animal Crossing). And maybe Yoshi's Crafted World if she enjoyed Kirby?

harvest moon/stardew vally seem to be a good choice as a lot of players who play these type of games are female.

All good suggestions. I think she may like some of the retro stuff. If they had the TMNT games I'd do it in a heartbeat. But I hate that I need to pay for a sub.

Cooking mama would be great, I'll keep that on my radar.

I considered stardew, I think if I can get her into gaming with something a little easier that'd be next. The inventory management might be a bit much for someone really inexperienced. It's gonna be a matter of getting her into something, after that I think it'd be like domino's.

I think I'm gonna go for it. If she doesn't like it, oh well, I tried haha. I have zero idea what else to get her.
