Summary (IA Generated)

Sarah Tew/CNET I got swept up in the preorder madness for an Xbox Series X on Sept.

From the NES and GameBoy to the Switch, a majority of Nintendo‘s homegrown games manage to appeal to children and adults.

But, for me, it’s the huge cast of core Nintendo game characters that really drive the multigenerational appeal.

I grew up playing games with Mario and Luigi, Donkey Kong and Link, and now my kids are playing all-new games with those same characters.

Kirby Star Allies is one of many great family games for the Switch.

Opening up Nintendo’s eShop to look for games with my kids has resulted in the occasional uncomfortable question or two.

Still, there’s no denying that Nintendo has a larger selection of titles geared towards families and kids.

The Switch’s dock is connected to the one large TV we own.

That means there are occasional conflicts with my kids wanting to game while my wife and I want to watch a movie or whatever.

It’s this capability — to switch between a docked console and mobile gaming device — that is tough to beat for family use.

Accessories like HyperX‘s ChargePlay Clutch that protect, charge and support the Switch help make mobile play better.

Sarah Tew/CNET Disciplining my kids has never been easier.

This is probably going to sound terrible, but a perk of the Switch’s mobility is that it makes it incredibly easy for me to take it away from the kids.

A big part of that, again, is the characters and their games.

Nintendo’s Switch Online service and its collection of retro titles brought all the feels rushing back.

The service, which is $20 yearly for one person or $35 for a family subscription, is required for online multiplayer games and voice chat, also includes a ton of classic titles from the original NES and SNES.

The Switch Online service includes access to a lot of classic NES and SNES games.

Really, though, it’s just nice to be able to introduce my kids to the original games.

No system is perfect or offers everything, of course, but between the games, the design and the online service, the Switch is just an unbeatable combo for my family.

Am I missing something about the new consoles that make them better for an entire family of gamers?.
