The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This game is AMAZING! It was actually my first "The Legend Of Zelda" game I've ever played. I've never played a Zelda game and now I really want to play the older games. I'm hyped for the next game to come out, and if you didn't know, Breath Of The Wild 2 will be coming out! I'M SO EXCITED!

This game. Is so. Great. Play it. Now. Honestly if this costed 120 dollars I would still buy it. It's the best game for me. This game got me introduced to Zelda and that's pretty great. I didn't grow up with Zelda but this made me as sure as heck wish that I did.

I agree this game is amazing. I wait a better sequel of this unique game

I have not played the Switch version but I played the Wii u version and its great - MarioBros11

2 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

This is the best game ever in my opinion, it combines a lot of influential characters into one game, while it certainly plays differently from other games, their characters still retain what is unique about them. - LarryLarrington

I hope the last DLC character Is someone good. Hoping for Crash Bandicoot oe Bandana Dee. - B1ueNew

Great, long story mode, beautiful graphics, and great stages and fighters! The only problems I have are the online mode's issues and the controls are sort of hard (I got used to them though). I'll give this game an 8/10! I strongly recommend that you play this game at a party. - Pokemonfan10

It shows an amazing quest it is harder to play so there is difficulty and it has all the Nintendo characters we have come to know and love

3 Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 is way better than the first and has much better weapons. I'm level 17 and I'm a beast. Nobody likes to mess with the Splatoon 2 king.

I'm so happy that this was on the switch in its first year. Splatoon was such a great game that never got to see its potential (because it was on the wii u) but now that its on the switch it has gotten so popular and I'm happy for it - JarJarz

This is amazing.This is my autistic interest.Got it for christmas and enjoy it after the final splat fest.Would recommend

Being a huge fan of the first Splatoon game, I bought this at launch and haven't been able to put it down since. - Atham

4 Super Mario Odyssey

I'm getting this game soon. So far from what I've seen. It is really fun. - B1ueNew

This game was everything I hoped it would be and then some. It reminded me of super mario galaxy, super mario galaxy 2, and super mario 64 while still being original in every way. It is the pinnacle of mario games, and I believe to be the pinnacle of all switch games.

Finally there is a 3D Platformer again! Became so rare this times

Best Nintendo game. Best Nintendo switch game. Best video game. Best video game of all time.

5 Mario Kart 8

The drifting and feel of this game is nearly perfect, the graphics being the best yet in the mario kart series! 200cc takes a bit to get at first but once mastered it is so fun to play competitively online and in time trials! This games just provides so well when it comes to online, even the offline grand prix's and VS Races are really good! This makes me want to strive to go for a world record in Time trials, and in my opinion is the best online game on the switch!

This Is The Game I Always Come Back To, It's A Great Game To Play With Friends And Alone I Also Love The Maps

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

Hands down, best racing game

6 Xenoblade Chronicles 2

I asked Sakurai, No he isn't adding Mythra to smash. We're very upset too. - Nintendo

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

Good, the xenoblade seems like xenoverse but the game is great.
I was talking about how the title seem same. - TriggerTrashKid

The Final Fantasy VII of this generation, and that's a good thing.

7 Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

I hate this game, but the only thing that makes it good is the final boss: a Ridley-like Bowser.

I played this, but I didn’t really like it. I can see why other people like it, but it is boring to me. - MysticalDream

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

This May have been a mistake - Nintendo

8 Arms

Most fun and creative fighting game I have played - Retroman64

Yes! I got to play this game at a preview, can't stress how fun it is

Did you watch the ARMS direct. There is some nice surprises. - ShigeruMiyamoto

It's inventive and fresh! Definitely recommend.

9 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

It's the same game we all know and love, but now we can take it anywhere! Well, there goes my social life again! - Atham

The graphics are a bit downgraded (a bit), but it is the same legendary RPG known as Skyrim. - TriggerTrashKid

Already on the list. - Extractinator04

Time to play Skyrim for the 5th millionth time. - RadioHead03

10 Super Mario Maker 2

This game is just constant fun. It's also the best Mario game I could think of. - OnyxtheOcelot

Absolutely my favorite Switch game. I've put 150 hours into it and I'm still not bored. Plus, future updates will add even more. The amount of content is just incredible.

It's out, and I love it a lot. I wonder if people still play the original? - MarioMaster101

Wait we haven't even released this yet why oh why is it number 44 already. - Nintendo

The Newcomers

? Super Kirby Clash
? Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

The Contenders

11 Sonic Mania

This saved the Sonic franchise from certain DOOM. Enough said.

Definitely deserves higher that number 12 spot. Can we get this to the top ten? PLEASE? - JarJarz

Come on. Bring it up higher! Most Sonic fans own Nintendo systems so it's no surprise that it is the best on Switch and not on XBO or PS4!

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 Kirby: Star Allies

No reason to hate it. Oh, sorry, there are a handful of them. - TriggerTrashKid

This game is my favorite

Its flipping Kirby. Of course it's in the top ten. - MarioBros11

This game is fun

13 Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together!

Snipper clips is the best game of all time on the nintendo switch

This game is the best multiplayer game on the switch - Retroman64

A bit boring after a while... - Marxcute19

14 Minecraft

Hummm I’ve been playing Minecraft java edition for 8 years and I see bedrock edition on switch...

Minecraft. Is. Not. Bad. - TriggerTrashKid

Better than Fortnite. - qToadRagez

It used to be bigger - MarioBros11

15 Puyo Puyo Tetris

This is the best yet!

Should be below Splatoon 2. - TriggerTrashKid

It is... You probably posted this at a time in which it was higher but still. - JarJarz

16 Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

Best Donkey Kong Till Date. - TriggerTrashKid

17 Project Sonic 2017

You can change the name to sonic forces now

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

This is called sonic forces and is a sequel to generations

Looks a little like generations

18 Super Mario Party

It hasn't come out yet, but it still looks awesome, a return to form for the Mario Party franchise.

Best Mario Party ever. Enough is enough. - SuperMario1

Watched a playthrough, looks pretty cool - MarioBros11

19 Yoshi's Crafted World

Oh Yeah! I loved woolly world (despite bad advertising) and this looks even better! Super Excited!

...anticipation... - MarioBros11


WoShi It's a DoUbLe YoShI ExPLoShi

20 Pokken Tournament DX

It was good! Before smash came out... Now just get smash - JarJarz


21 Super Bomberman R

It. Is. Mediocre. - TriggerTrashKid

22 Pokemon Let's Go Eevee

This game is so amazingly made.


... why is pikachu's version so much higher? - qToadRagez


23 Celeste

Bumping this up. Put this to the Top 15 maybe? - SoaPuffball

3rd best Switch game behind Mario and Zelda. Should be way higher

God, I love this game so much. - Atham

Aw, Love It. - TriggerTrashKid

24 Mario Tennis Aces

A good, underrated tennis game that's hated when it's actually good. Sure, online lags, but sometimes it happens in other games. - OnyxtheOcelot

For our next DLC we're adding a coin and a cheep cheep! we're gonna have to stop this soon... - Nintendo

Why play this when you can play tennis in real life? - TriggerTrashKid

Why this be at 50 - Feathers111

25 Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu

Mediocre - TriggerTrashKid

It’s pokemon

26 Pokemon Sword and Shield

Sobble is the best folks

SADLY the galarian ponyta is in shield >:(

Why is it 69th

Sobble Gang Unite!

cool game - louisomahoney

27 Rocket League

You can take it anywhere and it has all the content as it does on the other platforms. It has decreased visuals but that doesn't take away from how fun this game is. - thunderstar1124

Very good and better due to portability - Jiorl

Rock-it League - TriggerTrashKid

28 Fortnite: Battle Royale

Overhated. Why do people make this game underrated and say it's overrated. Yes there are constant 7 year old brats in the game, but I play it and I'm 13. Blame the 7 year olds, not the game itself - OnyxtheOcelot

WHAT!?!?!? WHO PUT THIS ON THE LIST!?!?! whoever did is probably a 7 year old - Swagwarrior

Don't get a switch just to play Fortnite! You can play Fortnite on a computer, Xbox One, PS4, or mobile. Get a switch to play SSBU. SSBU is better.

Fortnite, Fortnite, Let's Go. - TriggerTrashKid

29 Yooka-Laylee

O god how did this game even touch this sort of list? Please get it away now! - JarJarz

On the image it says Xbox One. This list is stupid. - MarioBros11

Oh no! - OnyxtheOcelot

30 Fire Emblem Warriors

This thing is severely underrated, not really as underrated as pm sticker star, but I don't know why people hate this so much. care to explain? - SoaPuffball

This game is awesome and deserves to be higher - firebreathingyoshi

31 NES Nintendo Switch Online
32 Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

34 Hollow Knight


Speeeld it's wonge. But I don't care this game is AMAZING - JarJarz

35 Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled
36 SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy
37 Dead Cells

This may not be the best game on the switch but it's got to be on this list somewhere. Awesome platforming side scroller with very good action! - Jshores

38 Attack on Titan 2
39 Dragon Quest X
40 Stardew Valley

This is the best version to have it on because you can take it anywhere and play it on your T.V. if you want.

This is TOP 10 MATERIAL! - TriggerTrashKid

41 Civilization VI

My dad owns Civilization V - MarioBros11

Pretty nice - TriggerTrashKid
