Must Have Video Game Series: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

If you didn’t know already, my family loves to game! We game together pretty much every single night. It is our family time before bed. Sometimes this includes board games, but it is usually video games. We rotate who chooses the game for the night, and we just added a new one in to the mix. I was thrilled to see Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze show up at our door because I have always loved the Donkey Kong games. I couldn’t wait to share it with my daughters.

Mama’s Geeky Must Have Video Games Series: Go Vacation for Nintendo Switch

We are a family of gamers and one of our favorite consoles is the Nintendo Switch. We are always looking for new games to play on it as a family. When a complimentary copy of Go Vacation arrived, we were all immediately excited. Just by looking at the case we could tell that this was going to be a TON of fun! We popped it in and have been playing it almost every day since. We even took it on our recent vacation to Walt Disney World to pass the time in the hotel.

Mama’s Geeky Must Have Video Games Series: Scribblenauts Showdown | #Scribblenauts #ReadySetParty

We are a gaming family. I mean, we have basically every gaming console ever made (yes I have the original NES still – although it is in the attic and not set up – but that is another story). When we first heard about Scribblenauts Showdown, we knew it was likely be an instant hit with our family. We love battling it out with each other and are constantly playing games like Mario Kart, 1, 2, Switch, and Bomberman. All four of us have some competitiveness about us, so this game was right up our alley! Luckily for us, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment gave us a copy to check it out the day it came out – and we fell in love right away!

Mama’s Geeky’s Must Have Video Games Series: Cuphead | #CupHead #XBOX

I don’t want to say we went out and bought an XBOX One X solely so that we could play Cuphead, but I will say that it was a huge part of the reason why. My husband and I had been waiting for this game since it was announced. The fact that it is totally hand painted is super fun and old school – and we just love it! Was this game well worth the cost on an XBOX One X? I say yes!

Mama’s Geeky’s Must Have Video Games Series: Super Mario Odyssey | #PlayNintendo #SuperMarioOdyssey

One game that I have been looking forward to since it was announced is Super Mario Odyssey. Knowing that it was coming out was one of the deciding factors on us getting the Nintendo Switch when we did. From the early trailers for this game, we could tell it would be fun for the whole family and an instant hit – and we were right! The game play and use of controllers is phenomenal – not to mention the story line. This game quickly became one of our favorites and I highly recommend it for any Nintendo fan!

Must Have Video Games Series: South Park: The Fractured But Whole | #SouthPark #UbiStars

I have been a fan of South Park for years and years. I was a young teenager when I started watching it and it is kind of something I grew up watching. I remember when the movie came out and my friends and I went to see it in theaters – ten times! I don’t watch it religiously anymore, but I will watch an episode here and there. I enjoyed the first UbiSoft South Park game, The Stick of Truth, so I was really excited to receive a copy of The Fractured But Whole.

Mama’s Geeky’s Must Have Video Games Series: Just Dance 2018 | #VideoGames #UbiStars

It is no secret that the Smith family is a family of gamers. Yes, we are a busy bunch with lots of extracurricular activities like basketball and volunteering – but we always make time for gaming. Something you may not know about my daughters is that this is their third  and fourth year of dance classes. It is something they look forward to every year. So when they can combine their passion for dance, and their love of video games, they are two happy girls. That is where Just Dance 2018 comes in.

Top 10 Wii U Games For Kids (And Parents!)

You probably already know that the Smiths are a family of gamers. We own pretty much every console out there, and use them on a daily basis. My girls are 5 and 7 years old and their personal favorite is the Wii U. If we allowed them to play it all day, every day, they totally would. In fact there probably (definitely) have been days like that – don’t judge. I sat them down and asked them to pick out their favorite Wii U games to play so that I could share them with you. They narrowed them down to 10 and I have to say, I love all the games they chose too!
