Best Nintendo Switch Games For Family Fun: Mario Kart 8 Ultimate

Gaming as a family is a great way to bond and spend quality time together. It also gives parents a chance to enjoy game time with their children and make memories that will last a lifetime. Gaming can be a great way to teach kids about teamwork, problem-solving, and competition in a healthy and fun way. And let's not forget, it's also a great way to relieve some stress and have a little fun. So, next time you're looking for a fun way to spend some quality family time, break out the controllers and give family gaming a try with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Nintendo Switch.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - This game easily tops the list because of the competitive fun it delivers... on a long-term basis via kart racing fun. You can play with up to 4-players locally from the same system, and 8 players total via online play. A plus about this game is that it doesn't have a steep learning curve for new kart racers and younger kids. Smart Steering is a feature in this game that allows you to drive and stay on the track a lot easier, so you aren't just hanging up the Joycon.

This game delivers tons of replay value, it doesn't just end at riding on a track with your selected character, it's all about the competition (baby)... so choose one of the many characters (i.e. Baby Mario) and jump into dozens upon dozens of tracks to fun it up with the family (in a variety of modes).

This tops the list because it's great for teaching teamwork, and learning good sportsmanship in terms of when the kids win and... especially when they lose. Not for nothing, but when they lose it will help them in the long run, because... you help them get into the habit of picking themselves up and trying again versus giving up. 

Encouragement to try-try again should be enough to get them back into the kart for fun compared to a participation trophy, because you win some... you lose some. Healthy competition is all fun but the plus is that it unconsciously helps in other areas of life.

Sure you get the online play that allows you to fill in the blanks where other racers are concerned if you don't want to play against the AI, sure it adds to the replay value because it makes the competition virtually endless, but... make family fun the ultimate goal. Game on!

This game is rated... E for Everyone.
