This list has no strict rules except for one – where possible to avoid remasters. I’ve also tried to keep the list specifically to one entry per genre where possible. So that there is a variety of options for people with all tastes and interests.
#10Super Mario Odyssey
Join Mario on a huge, globe-Join Mario on a huge, globe-trotting 3D adventure and use his awesome new abilities to gather Moons to power up your airship, the Odyssey, and save Princess Peach from Bowser’s wedding plans!
#9Katamari Damacy Reroll
An exception to the rule of no remasters has to be broken for Katamari Damacy ReRoll. This is a piece of art that needs to be experienced by every Switch owner. When the King of all Cosmos destroys the universe in a drunken haze, it comes down to you, the Price to put everything back together again. How do you do that, I hear you ask? By rolling up the entire cosmos to make back up the sky.
If you only play one JRPG on the Switch, let it be Xenoblade Chronicles definitive edition. Yes, I know it’s technically a remaster too, but its an important addition to your library. Xenoblade Chronicles is easily one of the finest games ever created, and if you don’t believe me, take a look at some lets plays or some walkthroughs. You will not be disappointed.
While Stardew Valley can be played on many platforms, on Switch is where it shines. It’s perfect for pottering around the house and then slipping it into the dock. Or take it on communities where you can get lost in your own little farming world where you can do nothing at all or focus on restoring buildings and delving into mines.
#6The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was not what most people were expecting. For a series that is so linear in its narrative and progress the last thing that long term fans were expecting was an open sandbox experience. This allows the player to approach Breath of the Wild in a whole new way, which is any way they want. If you wanted, you could march straight out to contend with Gannon straight away. Or you can lurk in forests to try and find the master sword and everything in between. It is as limited as your imagination is.
#5Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
If you own a Nintendo Switch and you don’t own Mario Kart 8 what are your reasons? This is a wonderful kart racing experience one that stands up to all of the series additions so far. Race solo or connect with friends the choices are you! You can also participate in online tournaments to test your skills against other players.
Pokemon finally makes its long-anticipated arrival on the Nintendo Switch. First, with Pokemon Let’s Go! A warm-hearted and gentle introduction for new and old players alike to experience Pokemon for the first time on Nintendo Switch. Pokemon Sword and Sheild offer an experience unprecedented in Pokemon history. A feature-rich experience, from its world’s descriptions, visuals, to the Pokemon you encounter in the wild. The world feels real and vibrant, with little touches throughout so that you know that the love and care you expect from this 20-year-old franchise is right here. From online battles with other trainers to the upcoming expansions arriving in Summer and Winter of 2020. There has never been a better time to step into the world of Pokemon.
#3Captain Toads Treasure Tracker
First debuting in Super Mario World 3D World, Captain Toad was an optional character for people who could find and help guide Toad through some puzzles. This is a full-fledged installment for Captain Toad where you are whisked away to a charming world. While it may look a little child like there is a lot to love about it and a lot to complete in this sweet and generous installment.
#2Super Smash Bros Ultimate
Could you really call this a top 10 list without Super Smash Brothers being at the top spots? The legendary battle brawler comes to Switch, a series that needs no introduction. Regardless if you are new to the series or a veteran in the Smash scene. There is no doubt what so ever that there is a lot of life to be found when you find your character.
#1Animal Crossing: New Horizon
Easily one of the games that took the world by storm during what has been an insane 2020 was Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Friends, family, lovers, and friends came together in a way that we haven’t seen in years. Building and creating their own islands. It has brought people together from all across the globe to an experience that otherwise with the global pandemic that struck the world would never have been able to accomplish otherwise.
