Watch these Super Mario Odyssey highlights from players (including a nap with a puppy)

Super Mario Odyssey has been out for a weekend, and Nintendo Switch just recently got built-in support for sharing videos to Twitter and other social networks - you can do the math. Players around the world are sharing their favorite moments from their journeys with Mario and Cappy, and they're a ton of fun to watch, whether you're looking for new stuff to do in-game or just want to see Mario take a nap with a puppy.

Beware that several of these player-made highlights could be considered mild spoilers, since so much of Odyssey's appeal lies in its many pleasant surprises. I've tried to steer clear of anything that's really secret, so I wouldn't worry about it too much unless you want to start the game 100-percent fresh.

First things first: I promised you Mario napping with a puppy, and I intend to deliver on that promise.
