While we may not all be athletic, sports is something that everyone can enjoy, whether it's actually actively participating or spectating. But sports-themed video games let us play whenever we want and have fun doing it. The Switch didn't start with many sports titles in its library, but it's steadily growing over time.

We like all of these sports games, but which one should you get? Naturally, it depends on which sports you like, but if you want something that many different people can pick up and learn quickly, Mario Tennis Aces is it. It's not only tremendously fun, but also lets up to four people play at a time. Be sure to grab it with the tennis racket accessory for your Nintendo Switch if you really want to turn it up a notch.

And if you want to actually burn some calories while you're playing video games, then make sure to get Ring Fit Adventure. It has a ton of different exercises to do, and believe me, you do work up a sweat playing, so it does work and costs less than a year of a gym membership!
