The Nintendo Switch has quickly become Nintendo’s most successful console to date. This handheld console can serve both as a console you can use while in bed, or connect it to your television for some chill gaming sessions with your buddies. The thing that makes The Nintendo Switch so successful is its collection of games, and we’re here to list down the best of them!
1. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
Nintendo made it a priority to return to Super Mario 3D World, but managed to give us one of the most creative levels in the history of the franchise.
Bowser’s Fury is the star of this remaster. It expands on the systems already created in Super Mario Odyssey, and brings in a bunch of new things that you can experiment with. Bowser’s Fury is by far one of the best levels in all of the Super Mario games combined.
Not to mention, 3D World still stands out as one of the most fun Mario experiences even on its own.
2. Luigi’s Mansion 3
Luigi is a character that deserves all the love he can get. Luigi’s Mansion 3 makes sure he takes the spotlight with charm!
Luigi’s Mansion 3 is a fantastic mash up of both of the previous games, and it also brings in more of a Ghostbusters feel than ever before. This is a hilarious game, with the jokes and comedic timing being absolutely spectacular.
If you’re looking to relax and laugh your way through a game, give Luigi’s Mansion 3 a try.
3. Monster Hunter Rise
The long awaited sequel to Monster Hunter World, Capcom have once again outdone themselves.
Monster Hunter Rise doesn’t just expand on World’s game design, but adds new things for players to do, more monsters to catch and a lot more variety in traversal. You have rideable mounts in the game now, along with pets and partners that you can have go monster hunting with you!
It’s a fun game and deserves acknowledgement, especially since it was a time exclusive for the Nintendo Switch.
4. Mario Kart 8
There has never been a racing game more fun than Mario Kart, and there never will be.
Mario Kart 8 is the largest step in the series’ evolution, and this game is smoother than better. The karts feel so fun to drive, the tracks are more varied in locations and balanced in design, not to mention the abilities are so much more fun to use!
Mario Kart 8 needs to be played with a group of people!
A difficult roguelite is a easy to find, Hades on the other hand is a masterpiece.
Escaping from hell isn’t very simple, as you have to keep dying and mastering the gameplay to finally become the victor. Hades puts you in the shoes of the prince of hell, whose sole purpose is to escape the gauntlet.
Fight, die and level your way out of Hades’ lair for ultimate freedom!
6. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
There has never been a gaming experience more relaxing than Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
These have always been cute games, but New Horizons makes sure you invest thousands of hours into your town. This game is so addictive due to its adorable art style, super cute cast of characters and well-made gameplay loop.
New Horizons pushes you to expand your horizon, and play it as much as possible.
7. Metroid Dread
Seamus’ return was expected for a while, but Metroid Dread managed to exceed expectations.
Metroid Dread brings the franchise back to its 2D platformer roots, but it ensures that the series moves forward with new gameplay additions and mechanics. Not to mention, a whole new story featuring Seamus is always a win win for all gamers!
The best part about Metroid Dread is that it feels like a classic game, yet it is more modern than most games being released in 2022!
8. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
The ultimate fighting experience, Super Smash Bros has been a mainline franchise for Nintendo since its conception in the N64 era.
Smash Bros Ultimate brings in a HUGE roster to the mix, while expanding on its selection of combos and stages as well. There are more stages here than in any other Smash Bros. game, whereas all of the characters in its roster are well balanced and ready to be played.
This is one for that weekend get together, plug your Nintendo Switch in and have the Smash Bros party!
9. Super Mario Odyssey
If Mario 64 set the benchmark for what the series would become moving forward, Super Mario Odyssey is the game that goes on to perfect that formula.
Super Mario Odyssey is by far the best game in the history of Mario as a character. It brings in so much to do, and offers you creative ways to do it all. There is a constant set of things to do in this game, and you will never run out of fun to be had.
If you ever get bored of running around and collecting moons, then you can just focus on playing the story!
10. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild left such a mark on the open world genre that every game aspires to be it now.
Breath of the Wild brought Link back from redundancy into the spotlight, giving you full control of the character and the map of Hyrule. There are an infinite number of ways in which you can do things in Breath of the Wild, and the options to change your strategies never run out.
The game has fantastic enemy design, lots of exploration, fun combat and some of the best bosses in Zelda history!
