This might be a dumb question, but because I'm not a gamer, I'll ask:

Are pre-owned games fine to use on your own switch? Would the game start and be played on my daughter's switch like it was the first time the game is played? I'm assuming yes because anything customized or game history would be stored on the memory card and not the cartridge, right?

Yeah, pretty sure saves are stored locally, not on the cart.

Switch games unless someone modded them somehow, will have game saves on the switch itself. Always double check used games, but honestly i havent seen any modded switch games sold yet. If it was the 3DS or handhelds like that or older, then it's saved on the cartridge. You can buy modded 3DS and older Nintendo handhelds that carry a huge library of games lol
