Random Select has a great article on encouraging non-gamers to try video games! I love playing games as a way to relax and I like playing games with family and friends!

My mom has watched me play games a few times. The last time she watched me when I was playing The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD on the Wii U and I was fighting the Kalle Demos boss. She saw me moving the Wii U GamePad while I tried to cut down the vines hanging from the ceiling to bring the boss down. She found it really funny that I had to move my arms around and that sometimes I would miss! She seemed to enjoy me playing especially since I looked funny waving the Wii U GamePad around like crazy trying to cut down vines!

If I wanted her to try playing a game, I would go with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe or Just Dance 2018 which are both on my Nintendo Switch. My mom loves cars so she would enjoy a racing game and we both love to dance so a dancing game would be fun to play together.
