Update: Thanks to everyone who has participated so far! We'll be publishing the full top 50 tomorrow, but there's still time to rate your favourite games of 2020 beforehand.
We've tinkered around behind the scenes and the not-very-shortlist below now only includes 2020 games we've reviewed on Nintendo Life. If you want to scroll through every single page, that should now be a little easier (although we'd still highly recommend using the search bar at the top of the list to find and rate the games you've played!).
It is still entirely possible to rate any 2020 game we haven't reviewed on the site (and there are plenty of those) via they're individual game page — they'll still be counted in the final ranking. To find something that's not on the list below, click the magnifying glass 'Search' icon in the top right corner of this page (top left on desktop), start typing the name of the game and click the result you want. Then look for the Game Rating box and score it out of 10.
We'll see you tomorrow for the results! In the meantime, keep an eye out for our Nintendo Life Staff Picks of 2020 later today...
This year might have thrown us a curveball (or seven), but bearing in mind the global situation it's been a surprisingly great one when it comes to quality video games. Nintendo's slate might have looked relatively empty back in January, but a regular cadence of surprise announcements ended up delivering a rather impressive lineup on Switch.
And now its time to rank them for Game of the Year 2020! We'll be putting out our Nintendo Life GOTY 2020 Staff Picks in due course, but first we're asking you to rate your favourites for our reader-ranked list of the Top 50 Best Switch Games of 2020. The end result will be much like those of 2017, 2018, and 2019: the top 50 Switch games of the year as governed by their User Ratings in our games database.
To rate any Nintendo Switch game released this year, simply start typing the title into the search bar at the top, click the star to bring up a rating of 1-10, and click the score you feel it deserves — job done! If you need a reminder on a particular game, feel free to click the game title and check out our review and screenshots.
We'll publish the results over the holidays, but in the meantime why not reacquaint yourself with some of the Nintendo gaming highlights of 2020?
Reader-ranked end-of-year list incoming! Thank you for rating your favourites. Feel free to discuss your favourite Switch games of the year below, and we'll reveal the results at a suitably festive time. If you're looking wondering about previous years, you can also find the Best Nintendo Switch Games of 2017, 2018, and 2019 in our bountiful catalogue of Switch essentials.
