Video games have come a long way from the original Atari and the NES, and us huddled around them in the basement making the 8 bit characters. Even the portable games have come a long way from our Tetris to the portable Nintendo Switch, which takes the games on the road including multi-player games.
The newest game for the Switch is Super Mario Maker 2, the sequel to Super Mario Maker – a game that allows you to create your own levels, and much more. You can break the rules as you use a wide range of parts, tools, and customization options to create the side scrolling Super Mario courses of your dreams alone or together by passing a Joy Con controller to a partner.
This game not only fun for kids as they learn how to play and beat the new levels, but the customization of the courses to get to Princess Peach adds a new layer of fun to the game.
