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

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.

10 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.
