@Navster I hadn’t considered the Lego games. He loves Spiderman, so I could definitely get him the Lego Marvel game.
@Crocosmia You’re right. He says he likes racing, but what he really likes is crashing into other cars. He got a kick of watching bumpers and doors break off in Dirt 3. I should pull up a video of Sonic & All-Stars Racing for him and see if he likes what he sees.
@mosespippy I had a similar experience with my nephew and Portal Bridge Connector. He’s no good at building levels, but likes to direct me and click the click the button to watch the ways the bridges fail.
@EmuPrime I pulled up Cuphead for him last night, and I gotta say Vinny from Giant Bomb is a saint for playing with his son Max. My nephew (and me too) had a lot more fun when I found a trainer and turned on invincibility.
@AlexLW, @Quartz_Movement I had almost forgotten about Putt-Putt! I grew up on these too. He liked a video I showed him of Putt-Putt, but he has trouble using a mouse in other games and doesn’t like it when people try to help him as he’s struggling.
@Homemade_Pizza He’d probably like Kerbal because he loves seeing the cars fly straight up like rockets.
@VulpesAbsurda Scrolling through my library, the Doom marine caught his eye. I firmly told him no, but a part of me was curious to see how he’d do.
@Gary_of_Nivea He liked Burrito Bison at first, but got bored fast, so a lot of interactivity is definitely a must.
He loved A Hat in Time because of the number of things he could do in the world: jumping into mud and water, going down slides, smacking enemies, collecting gems. He was surprisingly good at the platforming once he got the hang of it. It made me think he’d like stumbling around in Grow.
Hidden Folks might give he trouble since he can’t do precision stuff with a mouse, though. But Minecraft he would totally love, and I had completely forgotten about it.
@CaptainMorton Seeing how much he moves the controller around in the air makes me think he’d love the motion controls on the Switch. He’d have a blast with something like Odyssey.
As for Shovel Knight, he probably wouldn’t like it without invincibility enabled. But he adores pixel graphics.
