The next game in The Harried Mom’s Family Friendly Video Games Review series is Skylanders SWAP Force from Activision. When this game arrived at the house Tyler aka The Hubs (@DadandMarried) got excited and quickly volunteered to try this game out with our son. I’m always happy to have The Hubs help this gal out with a guest post and today I’m sharing his review and thoughts on the game with you, take it away Tyler….
I grew up with the first video games ever. I can remember being in a hotel in California on vacation in the mid 70s playing Pong with my brother. I saved up my paper route money for months to buy the very first Atari — it was $189, and that’s in 1978 money! I also spent hours playing Pac-Man at my local 7-11, and think back fondly on such forgotten games as Moon Cresta, Wizard of Wor and Mr. Do.
You name it, I’ve played games on practically every gaming platform ever created – Atari, ColecoVision, Nintendo, Genesis, Dreamcast, PlayStation, Wii, X-Box. So naturally, I wasn’t surprised when my son wanted to start playing video games. In the two years he’s been gaming, his favorite by far is the Skylanders series. So when my better half, AKA The Harried Mom, scored us the brand new Skylanders SWAP Force to review, I graciously volunteered to take valuable time out of my busy day to try the game out with our son. Ok, I’ll admit it, I love playing Skylanders as well!
