I have just always assumed they were a thing based on I don't know what, but it seems not, so I've been wondering how common they really are?
Edit: I figured I might add that I'm a woman, hence the curiosity
Hi - somewhat clueless dad here looking for some advice.
My teen is having a really rough time - diagnosed with mild ASD and ADHD in the last few months, he's never really had IRL friends and is suffering badly from depression and negative thoughts. One of the few things that he really enjoys - and that we enjoy together - is playing games on the Switch.
We've played through a number of games together - Most of the Mario titles, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, and Cuphead, among others. It's a small portion of the day where we can just kind of hang out and it's like therapy for him. I'm not good at any of them - he is amazingly good (he's S-ranked Cuphead multiple times on his own). But even for 20 minutes a day, the time we share working through game levels really seems to help his mood, and it's been great for our relationship.
I'm looking for more recommendations for games like these that we can play - where we can play at the same time, but which aren't competing with one another (a la Smash Bros). Extra points for games with enough sophistication in the design and gameplay to keep a young gaming enthusiast interested - while also forgiving enough for a clueless dad to stay in the mix.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
EDIT: Wow! Wow! Thank you all for so many kind and thoughtful responses. Gonna start with Stardew Valley!
