Nintendo Switch is the ultimate family gaming console. It has the flexibility to take anywhere your family goes, and the versatility to go from individual play to interactive or competitive play. Also, the selection of games continues to excite us with each new release. Their newest game, Pokemon Scarlet / Pokemon Violet comes out this month and Best Buy is giving away a copy of the double pack version of the game, a Nintendo prize pack, and a Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Edition Switch OLED, for one amazing ultimate Nintendo prize.
Do you have a favourite Nintendo memory?
Families have been enjoying Nintendo gaming for decades. My favourite Nintendo memory is from when my children were young playing Mario Kart with my father-in-law Dan. The fun started with selecting a driver, “Granpa, I want to be Bowser; you got to be him last time!” which to an outsider may have seemed confrontational but the atmosphere was total fun and laughs.
Pokemon too has been thrilling adults and children since 1996. What started as a very successful video game for the Game Boy quickly evolved into anime, trading cards, manga, and tons of related toys and other merchandise. Few on this planet have not experience Pokemon in one way or another. This contest will certainly create lasting memories for someone in Canada. The prize includes a Nintendo Switch console on which they will play countless games at home, at friends’ homes, and on road trips. One of those games will be the new Pokemon Scarlet / Pokemon Violet that’s also included in this prize. And the winner will also enjoy a collection of Nintendo Pokemon merchandise. It’s pretty much a perfect Pokemon prize!

When I played Resident Evil 2 on N64 it was the first horror game experience. Needless to say I got hooked from there on out.

My favourite Nintendo memory is playing super mario with my sister. We had a big age gap and playing super mario (and sometimes donkey kong country) were some of the only times we got along when we were younger. We even play together now as adults and it remains some of my best childhood memories.
Playing Skyward Sword on Wii literally replaced my upper body work outs for a time. I remember being so sore I thought my arm would fall off at one point. lol
Favorite Nintendo moment is blowing out the candles in Phantom Hourglass. I just really like that additional immersion detail.
My first console was the N64 with Ocarina of Time. I was blown away by the story, gameplay and amount of side questing. To this day I still love both system and game.

Playing Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, and Donkey Kong 64 with my sibling. Fun togethery times beating baddies!
My favourite Nintendo memory is playing Raving Rabbids in Wii with my boys when they were small. It was fun to see them get so excited when they were able to beat a level or make the rabbids do something silly.
Super Mario Bros on gameboy
Idk it was engaging
I haven’t been this excited for a Pokemon game since hey you pikachu! please pick me!
Playing super mario bros 3 with my younger brother. Still do every Christmas.
