What are your top 10 Switch games?


Out of curiosity. The lineup as we head further into 2021 is getting pretty nice. Right now my playthrough of Xenoblade X and 2 got sidetracked by NEO the World Ends with You (Great stuff so far by the way, worthy successor to one of the best RPGs ever).

Xenoblade DE
Xenoblade 2
Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity
Edit - Monster Hunter Rise
Super Smash Brothers Ultimate
Super Mario Odyssey

Honorable Mentions/Multiplatform-
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
NEO The World Ends with You

Want to get at some point-
Bravely Default 2
Shin Megami Tensi V
...Maybe the Diamond and Pearl Remakes. Big if.
As for Advance Wars, I may get the originals from the Wii U virtual console for the original sprite graphics.

Maybe Metroid Dread. I was always more of a Zelda person then a Metroid or Mario person to be honest. Would need to get Zero Mission, Fusion and Samus Returns.

Danjin44 Danjin44 I blame you for me grabbing Monster Hunter Rise, Great Ace Attorney and Monster Hunter Stories 2 since you have good taste in series and got me hooked into them.

There are games on Switch that I like as much or more than these listed, but I played them first on other platforms and don't associate them as Switch games - Resident Evil, Dark Souls, Final Fantasy VII-XII, Dragon Quest XI, Witcher 3, Cuphead, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, etc.

While I have played more than 10 unique games on the Switch, i dont think ive finished that many.

In this order, and its pretty close up at the top 3 for me:

1 - Zelda BotW
2 - Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (includes Torna)
3 - Astral Chain
4 - Super Mario Odyssey
5 - Xenoblade Chronicles DE


1. xenoblade 2
2. BOTW (not really a switch game, as it is wii u port, and I had it for wii u first)
3. mario + rabbids
4. hollow knight
5. luigis mansion

Sadly I just cant list more games, because switch have been dissapointment to me.

Many games are wii u ports, that I already have on wii u, and I dont like platformers or mario kart games which are popular on switch.

to me wii u were much better system than switch have so far been
