No wait really, the Nintendo Switch parental controls video is hilarious

I was late to the Switch party, but I found the best video of the lot! Nintendo's video guide to parental settings on the Switch is hilarious for a multitude of reasons and also pretty cute. In it Bowser imposes restrictions on poor ole Bo...   read
