Why you should buy a Nintendo Switch!


ooooh I have been oozing to write this post!

I am a casual gamer, nothing too hardcore, but that being said I have always invested in consoles. Nintendo DS, Gameboy’s, Xbox’s from the orignal all up to the One. Never a Playstation though, ew why would you??

But anyway, I recently sold my Xbox one as I had been drawn back into the world of Nintendo. I thoroughly enjoyed my Xbox, with games such as Borderlands, Bio Shock, Fallout, Far cry, Skyrim and of course Halo being significant games in my life. (still havent fully recovered from the end of Far cry 3), but they take time to complete. They also take a lot of commitment, you have to invest a good few hours to make any progress, and I definitely don’t have the attention span for that anymore.

So I bought a switch and haven’t looked back since. I only have two games currently, Mario Kart and the Super Mario bros (which I suck at) but that’s all I need. Mario Kart is just the absolute BEST. Mario Kart Tournaments have been endured vigorously and its such a good game that you can pick up and put down.


The switch is such a handy console, it can be a hand-held whenever necessary and has two small remotes which work so comfortably in your hand.

Not only that but can we discuss the fact, Animal crossing is coming in April and I am overflowing with all levels of nostalgia all ready!!!

What I love most about the switch, and really Nintendo itself, is that there are games for all ages, that everyone can get involved in and they haven’t changed Mario too much. When they released Call Of Duty on the Xbox and PS, every game they would make it bigger and better and well actually worse, but Nintendo have learnt from the mistakes of their rivals and kept Mario how we all love him.

I would highly recommend a switch to anyone who loves gaming and just generally having a laugh. You don’t need to be hardcore gamer to play and everyone else can get involved too!

If you have a switch, can you recommend any games? What are your thoughts on the Nintendo Console?

Lots of love,

    I must admit I don’t know all that much about the Switch, but whenever I read reviews or posts about it it’s always positive. Glad you’re enjoying it! Eyeing up any new games yet..? Or are you going to be grabbing Animal Crossing when it comes out in April?
    PS. Fell behind on blogs when I was in hospital so I’ve been making my way back through what I’ve missed. Did you announce the winner for your giveaway? Huge congrats to whoever won! 🙂

    If you get ANY game out on Switch right now, it’s got to be Breath of the Wild. 10/10 amazing.
