Switch Games That You Need To Play
The Nintendo Switch continues to win over people’s hearts with every passing year since its launch. After the middling reception of the Wii U, many were concerned about how the company could possibly manage against industry giants like Sony and Microsoft in the increasingly competitive games market. However, Nintendo succeeded against all odds with the Switch’s intuitive and innovative design. Capable of transitioning from a portable to a living room console at will, the promise of the Switch is one that has captured the imaginations of game playing public.
Alongside the Switch’s release was the universally praised The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, giving it the killer app it needed to quickly rise to the top of console sales charts and dramatically increase Nintendo’s revenue. But in the years since its launch, there has been no shortage of amazing games. We’ve got big first-party games like Mario and Fire Emblem. On the other hand, there are indie darlings like Dead Cells, Celeste, Darkwood, and Iconoclasts. Recently, we got Creature in the Well, a charming crossover between character action games and pinball.
Another strong aspect of the Switch is its third-party support. You’ve got games like Mortal Kombat 11 and Octopath Traveler. Of course, there’s plenty of ports too, such as Assassin’s Creed III and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Regardless of where you look, the library only seems to be expanding and improving with every consecutive year.

This includes games that have received a score of 8 or higher on GameSpot since the console’s release, as well as reviews for new games and updates to reviews of older games that were ported to Switch.
