The Top Ten Best Games for the Nintendo Switch

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

A game with a huge overworld with huge potential for future Zelda titles, a reworked story, amazing soundtrack, rpg style elements and those Devine beasts. It was a huge step forward not only for the Zelda but for Nintendo generally - Thiseas

Breath of the wild is one my list to get! Once I get enough money ir wait till my birthday role around, this is what I'll get!

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!

super smash bros can not even stand up to legend of zelda or the kings of Nintendo

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

I love the crossover element in this game. It just makes me smile to see all of my favorite video game characters in one game just dueling it out.

After Luigi's mansion 3, this is my second favorite nintendo game.

I'm horrible at smash but me and my pal played this and I was kirby he was cloud! I knocked him off the edge once and I was 25 points more then him (He was at 80, I was at 105) but for a berginner, I rocked!

This game takes me away from the stress of life. I can relax and enjoy when I play this game.

Super Mario Odyssey

The best Mario game ever released today. You can explore for example, a city, a beach, a Japanese temple and the moon. Plenty of collectibles too. - Thiseas

This game has been so much fun and I played it over 60 hours already!

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

This game made me feel every emotion: Plenty of joy, Logan of rage, a twinge of fear, and even a tearful moment at the end of a long journey. Breath of the Wild had me addicted for hours, but Super Mario Odyssey is fun every time I play it. Whether speed running, popping balloons, racing Koopas, punching bosses, finding every moon, or even just enjoying these amazingly designed kingdoms, Super Mario Odyssey is pure fun the whole way through. 10/10.

Splatoon 2

Well, I tried the splatoon 2 special 2020 demo and They gave me free switch online trial. I'm not good at it and U need real online so after a week passed my trial was over so yeah I'm not good at it but it looks awesome

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

Mario Kart 8

I love this game! Me and my family played it for over 110 hours which is over 4 days or something which it is really fun buy it if you have a switch and somebody to play with!

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!

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.


This game is one of the most unique fighting games I have ever seen.

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

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

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

Super Mario Maker 2

I highly recommend this one. It even allows you to play as Link.

Super Mario Maker 2 looks amazing. New items. I wasnt a huge fan of mario maker original but u can make cat mario so yes

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.

The Newcomers

? Overwatch
? Ringfit Adventure

One of the best excersise games with actual challenge and depth. - Thiseas

The Contenders

Sonic Mania

When the fans make better games than modern SEGA. Great soundtrack of course, good extras and good levels overall - Thiseas

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

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.

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

Colorful, cute, and solid gameplay. 10/10!

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

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

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

It's now called Sonic Forces and is mediocre to bad. - Thiseas

Pokken Tournament DX

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


Super Bomberman R

It. Is. Mediocre. - TriggerTrashKid


Its fun. Creative is pretty good and awesome and lovible. I think u might as well get it on PC oor something cos u need a microsoft account and swithc online.

Minecraft. Is. Not. Bad. - TriggerTrashKid

Better than Fortnite. - qToadRagez

It used to be bigger - MarioBros11

Pokemon Let's Go Eevee

This game is so amazingly made.


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



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

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

My first switch game. I love it so much! Fun tropical freeze it's so great! I love Donkey Kong County!

Best Donkey Kong Till Date. - TriggerTrashKid

Pokemon Sword and Shield

YES! I want this so super badly cos I hear UMBREON is in this and umbreon is my favorite pokemon EVER

A new, fun take on the Pokemon series. I still wish they had the full Pokedex though.

Sobble is the best folks

SADLY the galarian ponyta is in shield >:(

Why is it 69th

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

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

Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu

I like this game - LiamCoasterFan

Mediocre - TriggerTrashKid

It’s pokemon

Rocket League

Great game with plenty of cosmetics, depth on Mechanisms and good soundtrack by Monstercat - Thiseas

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

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

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

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

Hollow Knight

Very good Metroidvania. - Thiseas


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

NES Nintendo Switch Online
Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana
Layers of Fear: Legacy
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

SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy
Attack on Titan 2
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

Civilization VI

My dad owns Civilization V - MarioBros11

Pretty nice - TriggerTrashKid

Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition

Why is it in last place? It's really good! - myusernameisthis

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition
Mortal Kombat 11
L.A. Noire
Dragon Quest X
Doom (2016)

This one rocks - TriggerTrashKid

Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura

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

Fast RMX

To be honest, I haven't played this, but the graphics look beautiful and the gameplay looks solid.

This is a really good game.
