I mean I specifically want Switch games that my daughter might be interested in but I’m guessing other parents of DiS or members of DiS who are buying games for other people’s kids might find a more general thread more useful.
We have Animal Crossing but she’s got pretty bored of it now there’s not much to do aside (I guess) from get money.
I bought her Harry Potter Lego which she was good with apart from needing my help sometimes. And she actually enjoyed playing my Abzu game a bit but I’m not sure it really held her attention to a huge degree.
My 5 year old loves the Lego Movie Videogame and Lego Incredibles but not sure if that’s too simplistic for 8 year olds. We just play hide and seek in the open world mostly, maybe 8 year olds would enjoy doing the actual missions.
Minecraft? My friend’s kid is 8 and loves it, think he just plays it on the easiest setting so he can just build without having to worry about mining, really impressed at how mad some of the stuff he has built looks, think it’s actually a game that helps nurture creativity unlike most games i played growing up!
