The Top Ten
1 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Product Image

How the switch can run a game so good and complete smoothly and in hd? Everyone buy this game. PLEASE. It's too good to be ignored. Hunting is fun, Battling is fun, Cutscenes are touching and epic, the world is the best and the most beautiful, soundtrack is perfect... I would give it a 9.38997/10 (Very specific!)

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

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.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild isn't just a Zelda game nor is it just a Nintendo game, it's a experience.You don't have to like Zelda games to have fun with this immersive game.And it's definitely one of the Top Ten Game of all time.

2 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Product Image

I love the story mode it is so immersive (even though I spent so long on the first map and got angry when I realized there was more).

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is one of the best games that I've ever seen. It has amazing graphics and the variety of fighters is vast. Overall, 10/10.

Anyone who knows Super Smash Bros knows that it’s a really popular fighting game. All the smash games are good, but brawl and ultimate are the best because they have the best adventure modes. World of Light took me almost a whole month to finish it. My mom loves challenging games such as Legend of Zelda the best. And World of Light is one of the reasons I have a Switch. Also, it is the best games to play with my friends, we all have a switch and we all have Nintendo Switches. My top 10 favorite characters are right here.
1. Pit
2. Toon Link
3. Kirby
4. Cloud
5. Mario
6. Inkling
7. Pikachu
8. Zelda
9. Marth
10. Link

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for sure earned the Ultimate in the title and is a game for everyone to enjoy. The best Smash Bros game and is one of the essential Nintendo Switch title.

3 Super Mario Odyssey Super Mario Odyssey Product Image

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.

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.

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.

This game is like one of the best Switch games ever. Great story, sidekick is good, the kingdoms have so much excitement and the moons feel rewarding to collect. Seriously this game should get DLC and a sequel in 2019 or 2020 for the Nintendo Switch.

4 Splatoon 2 Splatoon 2 Product Image

Splatoon 2 is an amazing sequel for Splatoon. I also heard Splatoon 3 is coming out soon. Anyways, this game is fun and has so many different modes. It has salmon run, hero (solo) mode, splat zones, turf war, rainmaker, tower control... so many! And the main objective is never killing your enemies. You can ‘splat’ them to help you out but it’s never your focus. I definitely recommend this game to anyone who likes variety and colourful games!

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

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

Great, addicting and fun gameplay. Want a colorful multiplayer? This is it. The characters are cute, the campaign isn't dissappointing. And the multiplayer stands out.

5 Mario Kart 8 Mario Kart 8 Product Image

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!

I cannot wait to play this game when I own a Switch this year. It has got the coolest additional features such as several new characters (Inklings because I love Splatoon) and features more options for Battle Mode.

Like to drive around and get 1# even if I did nothing special only drive

6 Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Product Image

This game is so epic. I've never been a JRPG fan, but this game has completely changed my opinion. I love Rex and Pyra, really strong leads with some outstanding and funny support from Nia, Tora, Poppi and my favourite Zeke. The story is full of twists, deaths, betrayal, joy and sadness, one of my favourites ever. The wolrd of Titans is full of creatures, towns, secrets and some of the best music I've heard in years. A true masterpiece, if you think you don't like JRPG games, you might surprise yourself with this one. Fantastic game

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.

In my opinion, I think this is better than Xenoblade Chronicals 1. Honestly it's a great game, this is once again another masterpiece you should own on your Switch. Story, Gameplay, Music, Characters, Wolrd, Bosses, all brilliant. 10/10

7 Arms Arms Product Image

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

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.

Most fun and creative fighting game I have played

8 Super Mario Maker 2 Super Mario Maker 2 Product Image

You can make Mario levels to fit you style, then play them! Or you can challenge your friends, play other people’s levels... the possibilities for your levels are endless!

Super Mario Maker 2 is an awesome game to play where you can make and play Mario levels, however the Versus Online mode is just bad but everything else is awesome.

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.

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

9 Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Product Image

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a surprisingly fun game that shows you that you really can't judge a book by it's cover and I think everyone should give it a try.

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

This game is amazing if you haven't played it you should

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

10 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.

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

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!

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

The Newcomers

? Among Us Among Us Product Image

Obviously and white the new map it’s even better and deserves to be higher

how is it not number 1

The Contenders
11 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Product Image

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

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

Another version of the game to add to your collection.

This is the coolest game ever

12 Kirby: Star Allies Kirby: Star Allies Product Image

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

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

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

This game is my favorite

17 Sonic Forces Sonic Forces Product Image

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.

You can change the name to sonic forces now

18 Minecraft Minecraft Product Image

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.

It used to be bigger

Common it’s a classic game even though we chose the glow squid (WHY?!?!?!) but it just needs new updates

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

19 Super Mario Party Super Mario Party Product Image

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

Now it's lacking new contest 2 years after the release

Best Mario Party ever. Enough is enough.

It's pretty good but overrated

20 Hollow Knight Hollow Knight Product Image

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

Very good Metroidvania.

21 Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Product Image
22 Celeste Celeste Product Image

Celeste is just an amazing game for the switch, and It will cause you to rage quit but the game is so much fun.

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

God, I love this game so much.

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

23 Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu Product Image

It doesn't even have abilities, lame.

Mediocre

It’s pokemon

24 Pokemon Let's Go Eevee Pokemon Let's Go Eevee Product Image

This game is so amazingly made.

Eevee. Period.

Why is let’s go pikachu higher? The gameplay is basically exactly the same.

I like this game, but I don’t like the idea of that you can’t go back to certain areas.

25 Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition Product Image

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