  • He's taking on a Lynel! Oh, he's low. You almost got him. Get him!

  • Get him riding his back. Yes! You did it!

  • And look, this time, we have it recorded.

  • Oh boy. Oh yeah.

  • [Life in Japan Theme Song]

  • Today we are going to talk about our favorite Nintendo switch games of all time.

  • Multiplayer and single games. Here we go.

  • Would you guys say this is your favorite of all time?

  • Maybe. No. Multiplayer - that means 4 players.

  • You guys all play together?

  • Look at this. One of my favorites.

  • One of them.

  • Minecraft isn't just one of our kids favorite multiplayer games, it's the most selling game of all time, so it's fitting that we'd start this video with Minecraft.

  • Oh, Anna, is that the house that you made? Yeah, its a moon.

  • You can play Minecraft on a number of different systems, and our kids most like the creative world where they can build whatever they like.

  • Wow! This is my huge house.

  • This is my huge house.

  • So here's the elevator, the red and the green so I get to go up.

  • And, there is nothing right there and this is my room.

  • Very cool.

  • And up here is my storage room.

  • Your storage room. So whatever you want to store you have to carry up that ladder?

  • This is Minecraft.

  • Sarah you have a magical bridge that just...goes and meets your feet as you go, huh?

  • I'm going to go meet you Joshua.

  • Ok, what's Joshua, Mr A Game. Oh you are going to some lava parkour?

  • Yeah. That's some intense parkour! Ahhh!

  • Oh my goodness dude. Hi Joshua!

  • Hi! Jump!

  • So with Minecraft out of the way, what other games do we like on the Switch?

  • Over the holidays we played a game called Overcooked 2 and had a blast.

  • Essentially you've got to work together as a team to successfully run a restaurant kitchen.

  • Ok, we need just the shrimp.

  • I need just a shrimp.

  • And the fish. Just the fish and shrimp Fish! Shrimp!

  • The gameplay is fun and intense and if there's any communication problems between you and others, it will certainly be an issue in succeeding in this game.

  • I need a fish!

  • Fish!

  • I put it! What is that? That's not a fish.

  • That's a shrimp.

  • We need a fish! You need a shrimp.

  • Oh yeah I do.

  • We need a fish.

  • Ahhh, I'm going to die!

  • You have to work together to complete dishes and deliver as many as possible before the time runs out.

  • Some chefs even put their lives on the line to do it.

  • Oh no! Man down. I'm dead. I'm dead.

  • Times up. How did you do? Except for getting run over by a car.

  • Oh, not good. We should do it again.

  • If dangerous cooking doesn't float your boat, then you might really get into Animal Crossing New Horizons.

  • This is probably one of the most relaxing and innocent games you can find, and our kids enjoy it.

  • Essentially you move your little animal character to an island and begin to develop it with the neighbors while you live there.

  • Skip, skip, skip.

  • Good morning everybody. Now on forest time and it's 9:00.

  • The seasons in the game change along with the real seasons, and the game really develops as you progress.

  • They say money doesn't grow on trees, but in Animal Crossing, it does.

  • Oh! Money tree.

  • How much is it?

  • 10,000?

  • You can even build your own house and style it however you like.

  • Look at me guys. I'm a princess. Look at the Reutter kids!

  • I'm going to get angry at you. My house is not cute.

  • Look how beautiful this is. There's cupcakes. There's cupcakes.

  • You can really see each kids' personality in the way they decorate their rooms.

  • Joshua's all Mario room was quite the sight.

  • Oh, you've got a cool racetrack.

  • And a cool Mario room.

  • Oh, look at Anna's house.

  • Look at all my collection. You she has a kotatsu.

  • Yeah, I have a kotatsu.

  • This is from Airi, our best friend.

  • Can you turn on.. Oh, that is so Sarah.

  • There's a shower is on. You need to turn off the shower.

  • What is the shower doing on?

  • If you've ever wondered what life would be like on a remote Japanese island, then this game will give you a pretty good idea.

  • You even pay your bills at the ATM machine at the local store, just like you do at a real convenience store in Japan.

  • I'm going to do some exercise guys.

  • Exercise.

  • And nothing is more Japanese than some warmups before any activity.

  • Wait, let me do it. Let me do something.

  • Now our family's a big family so not everyone gets a lot of time to play single player games,

  • But here are some of our favorites.

  • Super Mario Odyssey!

  • No Nintendo system would be complete without a Mario game of some sort to go along with it,

  • and Super Mario Odyssey is one of the best additions to the franchise.

  • This really is an odyssey where you, as Mario, travel to distant lands

  • collecting power moons all in order to save Princess Peach from a forced marriage with Bowser.

  • The family has thoroughly enjoyed playing through this Mario game.

  • You need to run, jump and parkour your way to victory throughout the stages.

  • It's probably my favorite Super Mario game to date.

  • He's gonna blast off.

  • So, mommy has a game too, Momma-chan.

  • What's your game? Skyforce - wait, what's it called?

  • Skyforce.

  • I love this game.

  • And she's good.

  • When Ruth gets a couple of minutes, she'll fire up Skyforce and let it rip.

  • You might not guess it, but she can really tear it up in Skyforce.

  • In each level you try to destroy as many enemies as possible while saving as many people as possible.

  • It usually takes a number of tries on any level before you can perfect your attack.

  • When you've passed one level, you're rewarded with more difficult challenges and levels.

  • Throughout the game you level up your airplane until it is a lean, mean fighting machine ready to take on the most difficult of assaults.

  • What do you think of mommy's sky force skills?

  • You're trying to get all the people.

  • No, I'm trying to get "untouched" but I already lost that.

  • Here comes the boss. Lookout, look at that gun!

  • I'm in critical condition.

  • You won't die yet. Mommy's trying her best to stay alive.

  • Maybe? Oh! OH!

  • As we make our way to our favorite games of all time on the Switch, we need to give an honorable mention to Smash Brothers.

  • Anyone who has played Smash Brothers knows they in for an epic battle

  • involving pretty much every character in the Nintendo universe and beyond.

  • I imagine if we had a family of all boys, this would probably be our favorite game.

  • As it is, Joshua loves the chance to get the upper hand on his older sisters, but it's not always so easy.

  • Hey, come here guys.

  • That was a big hit for you Becca.

  • YES! What??

  • Your little brother took you out.

  • Whoa, Anna!

  • Nooooo!

  • Joshua! The youngest won!

  • You can't see the pose that Joshua just did.

  • It was like this.

  • Can I do one more? You want to do one more?

  • Ok, one more.

  • There are usually multiple rounds of Smash Brothers played, as everyone wants a shot at victory.

  • I'm the princess.

  • Where am I? Oh I'm just...

  • Oh wow Sarah. You're so good! I love this girl.

  • So the higher your damage, the farther you fly when you get hit.

  • Oh no, please Momma! Oh, OH!

  • The next round came down to Becca and Joshua. Who will win?

  • I'm good.

  • Yes, got you!

  • Yes! Whoa!!

  • This time Becca won. Oh my goodness.

  • Oh, that's a good sport Joshua. Way to go.

  • But the award for our favorite multiplayer Switch game goes to Mario Kart.

  • This game is even older than the Switch, but it continues to be a game we come back to time and time again.

  • If you've ever played Mario Kart,

  • you know it's essentially a mix of Smash Brothers and real racing,

  • with great tracks and fun character specials.

  • The races can really challenge you to become a better racer,

  • but sometimes there's just nothing you can do when the game isn't going your way.

  • Daddy is in 1st!

  • I am in 5th.

  • I am in 3rd.

  • I am, I am 4th.

  • My golden mushroom. Hey, hey, hey!

  • It's not done yet. Oh someone is trying to chomp. I am.

  • Come on something better than a green shell.

  • I gotta line this up. Oh no! Go, go, go... ohhh!

  • All in all, it makes for a fun family time that everyone can get in on.

  • Ohhhh!

  • Oh that's last. Good start for me.

  • Me too. Yeah.

  • Oh! This is my shortcut.

  • Bye! I'm in first.

  • I'm in 1st.

  • Oh no, please Josh, please. What have you done?

  • No I didn't, Daddy [did it].

  • Oh, I ran into the wall.

  • Go Becca, go! Go Anna, go!

  • Go Becca, go!

  • Oh my goodness. Things were so freaking close.

  • Joshua, good finish.

  • Now, instead of racing, imagine you're golfing in the Mario universe, and that's Mario Golf.

  • While it's too early to tell if this will be one of our long-term favorites, we have had a blast playing this multiplayer with friends.

  • Whoa. Not if I want to stay on the green. Not if he was trying on playing it safe.
