You can be a kid. Or you can be a squid. You can't be both at once, though: That'd be an abomination against nature. But whatever form you take in this dazzlingly fun team shooting game -- hominid or cephalopod -- you can be assured that you'll have a good time. When you're a kid, you get to fire an ink gun indiscriminately at public property. When you're a squid, you get to cut through runnels of ink with the ease of a dolphin swimming in a lagoon. Totally win-win.
Best of all, you can be crummy at shooting games but still prove valuable to your team in Splatoon. Are you incapable of drawing a neon-colored bead on your fast-moving opponent? That's OK. Shoot the floor. That's all that's required of you.
