Seriously Nintendo magic is unlike anything else, so let me set the scene.
My missus agrees to look after her best mates kid for a few hours (he's 6/7) so he's around ours, the second he gets here he pulls out his Switch and he's giddy to talk to me about it and to show me Fortnite. I don't see him often but he knows me as the Nintendo person lol.
So he goes to show me Fortnite but it needs an update so he shows me MK8D while we wait, he's only got those games but he loves them both. He gets bored of Mario Kart and moves onto Fortnite so I try and show an interest but I just don't get the game and it bores me to tears. After a while he's had enough so he asks what games I've got, so I throw my Switch in the dock and he's blown away by all my game icons, considering he's only got two especially. He's doing the typical what's that, what's this and he's saying he can only play the Mario games due to his age when he asks to play Mario + Rabbids. I decided against showing him a tough SRPG in M+R so I run and get Odyssey instead.
His face when it booted up was a picture, he was blown away and glued to the seat. When he caught the frog he was basically screaming and just giddy! I'm helping with speech only and refusing to do anything for him and he gets to the first boss, he's adamant it's too hard for him but he did it after a few tries (first boss is 2 hits), in the next kingdom when he saw the Odyssey and the Trex I thought he was going to explode, he was giddy as anything! He explored and with direction he made it to the boss and this one gave him trouble, he was visibly getting frustrated, especially after he hit it twice and it didn't die (typical 3 hit boss this time) but he was also getting 2/3 hits on most tries so I refused to do it for him, I told him I knew he could do it. I left the room and I could hear him shouting "I've hit her twice, I need one more hit" so I snuck to the door and watched, he got the final hit and seriously I thought he was going to cry lmao, he was so happy with himself! Jumping around the room and super chuffed lol. He finds the final moon he needs and goes to the sand kingdom.
He explored and messed around but we were running out of time and he wanted to try another boss so I took over and rushed to the rabbit boss. This time I gave no direction and said he had to figure it out himself, he beat it on his second try. Once again he was ecstatic. After that it was time to go and the sneak tried to leave his Switch and take mine 😂😂😂😂, he was just messing though.
I dunno I just found this process super Nintendo Magic, maybe it's because I remember these emotions as a kid, hell I had similar moments of pure joy playing Odyssey myself but witnessing this kid fall in love with Odyssey was awesome. There is nothing like Nintendo.
