Top Ten Best Games for the Nintendo Switch

Just vote for your favorite game playable on the new console.

The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Sonic 1 (master system), Alex kid in a miracle world, & smurfs (master system) needs to be on the Nintendo switch

Make me, make me a believer.

It's Zelda, period.

This isn't even a question at the current time. The only other really viable title is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe which, while great, is just a special edition re-release and isn't in the same league. Not only is this the best game of the Switch currently, but it's also probably one of the best games of the year and one of the best Zelda titles ever made.

It's quite possible that this game will be topped in the future with releases like Super Mario Odyssey, Metroid Prime 4, Fire Emblem Switch, and possibly a new DK Country (seeing as how Retro Studios isn't working on either of the new metroids), but until then, Breath of the Wild is head and shoulders above anything else that exists.

3 Splatoon 2

BEST GAME EVER! Its great! The first splatoon was AWESOME and this splatoon introduced new weapons gear and a lot more stuff.

I'm commenting this after it came out and it's my favorite game on the Switch so far - thunderstar1124

It is thebest

4 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

They should've made mario kart 9 not mario kart 8. But who cares GO NINTENDO SWITCH!

Number 4 what this should be higher

5 Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

I never really expected THIS to happen. it's a good game though

y so low?

6 Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Superior to most JRPGs. Seriously good game. Brilliant funny loveable characters, masterpiece music, unique outstanding environments, well written story, loads of monsters and enemies to fight. Never gets boring in my opinion. 10/10

Best JRPG I've ever played. Likeable characters, beautiful world's, engaging story, loads of side missions, challenging monsters and bosses, and the best OST I've ever heard. Should be in the top three easily.

So much better than X was

Why is this not in top 5?

The Contenders

11 Sonic Mania Sonic Mania

Sonic Mania looks fantastic in all aspects. I loved that SEGA let fan game creators make a Sonic game. After this, I feel like they need to make more games with these people in the developer's seat.

12 Project Sonic 2017

This game is going to bring sonic back to good. Along with sonic mania

You can change the name to sonic forces now

This is called sonic forces and is a sequel to generations

Looks a little like generations
