Leave it to Nintendo to turn the typically R-rated shooting genre into something the whole family can enjoy. In Splatoon you don’t shoot bullets at enemies, you shoot ink. And instead of focusing on your kill count, the goal is to coat as much of the environment as possible in your team’s color of ink. Blasting your opponents is optional, and finding the right balance of defense and offense is loads of fun. Finally, a shooter for players of all ages.
