Fun game for kids of all ages

This is a fun alternative to shooting games. My 6 year old has been playing Splatoon 2 since his 5th birthday. It's great hand eye coordination and a lot of fun colors and paint splatter. I fully recommend. There is some reading, but it's not really required for the plot. You can also turn off people's comments in the opening square bc someone will occasionally try to be funny and draw a penis 😐, but it's 100% easy to switch off. Even my 3 year old loves it, but yet skills aren't up to par lol. We all love this game!
