Topic: What are your top 10 favourite Nintendo Switch games?

Posts 21 to 40 of 62


Tough question as there are a lot if brilliant games on the Switch. But here are ten games that I truly enjoy (without any particular order):

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Super Mario Odyssey
Dark Souls
Diablo III
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Octopath Traveler
Splatoon 2
The Elders Scrolls V: Skyrim

Friend code: SW-3941-9887-2293


I have way too many Switch games for a Top 10, so I’ll just do a Top 18 from best to worst. Why only 18? My backlog includes 12 more games I haven’t played enough to evaluate.
1. Smash Ultimate: No explanation required.
2. Hollow Knight: Coming into this, I was expecting pure frustration. I did achieve this, but trying to get 100% is so fun, would recommend to those new to Metroidvanias.
3. Breath of the Wild: It’s Zelda, no explanation required.
4. Super Mario Odyssey: Great open world Mario, but still feel 64 DS is just a tad better, but that is most likely nostalgia.
5. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: A mashup I never thought would be good. Great game for those new to tactics games.
6. Super Mario Party: The cars are gone and the party is back.
7. Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove: Don’t have anything to say that hasn’t already been said.
8. Runbow: Lots of fun multiplayer content, but lacking a little in single player.
9. Sonic Mania: Amazing game, it’s just a little too frustrating at points.
10. Astro Bears Party: Stupid multiplayer fun.
11. Mario Tennis Aces: The best sports game I’ve ever played.
12. Rayman Legends: Another great game, but some levels are very frustrating to get all the Teensies.
13. Worms W.M.D: Controls aren’t the best, but it’s still a good Worms game.
14: One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3: Definitely not a bad game, just very niche and can be tedious at points.
15. Slime-San: Great game, super frustrating.
16. Blaster Master Zero: Very good game, just a bit short.
17. Rocket League: No reason for being so low, just doesn’t get much playtime
18. Splatoon 2: Same as RL.

Please notify me if you want to add me on Switch before sending a request. It makes my life easier.

1. Super Mario Odyssey
2. Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Well, the Switch has two titles of interest to me to call its own now. I suppose that's something... I guess. Honorable mentions go to Okami HD and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Both great games that I can not credit to the Switch since they are just ports.

These are the tops out of about 50 games I actually own - I'm dead certain Civ 6 would be here but I haven't bought it (it's on my Christmakuh list). Also, I'm not concerned about exclusivity since the Switch is my only modern console.

(Order is random. These are all amazing games.)

2. Skyrim
3. Darkest Dungeon
4. Dragon Quest Builders
6. Splatoon 2
7. R-Type Dimensions
8. Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
9. Bayonetta 2
10. Stardew Valley

Honorable mention to Dead Cells, Hollow Knight, FAST RMX and Hand of Fate 2.

I don't actually own 10 games for Switch, so a top 5 will have to do. I do enjoy all of them though so this list isn't definitive by any means (except the top 2).

1. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate
2. Super Smash Bros Ultimate
3. Puyo Puyo Tetris
4. Dragon Quest Builders
5. Super Mario Party

Mario Maker 2: JN2-5GV-VTF
Latest Level: The Mario Repair Shop 361-D5D-1CG


This list tends to fluctuate depending on which game I’m into at the moment, but currently:

1) Warframe (this one will probably stay solid for a while)
2) Xenoblade Chronicles 2
3) Splatoon 2
4) Zelda
5) Smash (will probably up, I’m just slowly getting into it)
6) Diablo3
7) Paladins
8) Starlink
9) Odyssey
10) Immortal Redneck

Wishlist: Ys and Octopath Traveler, but I gotta knock out some backlog first.

I've got over 200 Switch games and there's so many that I love so just picking ten is almost impossible. Here's a very rough list but there's a lot of very worthy games that I haven't listed. I've tried to focus on games that either launched around the same time on Switch to other platforms (same year) or were significantly improved on the Switch, rather than ports.
1. Celeste
2. Splatoon 2
3. Xenoblade Chronicles 2
4. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
5. Just Shapes & Beats
6. Deemo
7. Battle Chef Brigade
8. Golf Story
10. Iconoclasts


Switch Friend Code: SW-4616-9069-4695 | 3DS Friend Code: 3652-0548-9579 | Nintendo Network ID: Ben_AV


1. Super Smash Brothers Ultimate
2. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
3. Super Mario Odyssey
4. Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu
6. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (w/ Golden Country DLC)
7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
8. Bayonetta
9. Mutant Mudds Collection
10. Snipperclips

If Xenoblade Chronicles 2 didn't have such a performance gap between handheld and docked mode, the game probably would be my favorite Switch game especially with the Golden Country DLC included. I just haven't been able to get into the game like I've wanted to or should've had its performance quality been on level with other Nintendo Switch titles from Nintendo.

Favorite Game: Metroid Prime Hunters


1. Super Mario Odyssey
2. Xenoblade Chronicles 2
3. TES V: Skyrim
4. Bayonetta series
5. Diablo III
6. Minecraft
7. Doom
8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
9. Axiom Verge
10. Ikaruga

It's becoming difficult to pick just ten. I still haven't played Dead Cells, SSMBU, Hollow Knight, etc.

@Grisinblue Convince me on Dandara. I've been tempted before as I like the look of it, but reviews have put me off (I forget why specifically).

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.
