#NintendoSwitch #BestSwitchGames #BestSwitchGamesEver


  1. I love the eyewitness cat DVD you got up there. Those where soo cool to watch as a kid from the library

  2. Probably my favorite game that is not on this list is Shin Megami Tensei 5.

  3. Surely forgetting Dragon Quest X1 was a mistake.

  4. The Switch Fire Emblem games are way overhyped. They are uninspired cash grabs and have been for a while.

  5. I’d have probably added Skyrim to this list if it were mine

  6. I’ve actually been enjoying this the last couple days. Of course, I think I’ve caught almost all the Pokémon in the terrarium, so it’s time to play the story.

  7. very good list, but unfortunately there is no astral chain and luigi mansion 3. But it is understandable, everyone has their own version

  8. Your wrong I have 145 hours into mario kart not 40

  9. I can vouch Tetris effect is worth it 100 percent but it goes on sale often don't buy it full price

  10. One of worst lists ever… How can u not include DQ11 , octopath travelers, Astral chain and many more

  11. Dead Cells is fricking awesome. 105 hours on that game and I have all the DLC. Brilliant game.

  12. My problem is I’m afraid of spending $40-$60 just to play something once and never again

  13. People like lists. People like lists that are ranked. They like to be able to argue in the comments whether your #10 is better than your #8. I don’t know who you think you’re pleasing by randomizing your list. Nobody is thinking , “wow let’s check YouTube for the top Switch games in no particular order.”

  14. No three houses on a best 31 games is crazy!

  15. No TIRANGLE STRATEGY?? One of the best polished and story-driven tactical games of all time???

  16. You forgot to include Astral Chain and Nier:Automata 😭😭😭

  17. I think Bomb Rush Cyberfunk and Sea of Stars for sure to be on thid list. Don't sleep on the new developers!

  18. Idk why I thought you were ESO. Thanks for the list. Love your skills

  19. Idk how Luigi mansion wasn’t mentioned let alone it being near the top in my opinion.

  20. Take a shot every time this guy says “frankly” or “to be frank” and you’ll have alcohol poisoning by the end of the video

  21. Astral Chain, FE three houses, triangle strategy, octopath 2, star ocean 2, links awakening remake. So many unbelivably good games on this console man….

  22. Thank you for this list. Now I'm convinced not to get a Switch.

  23. Yeah dudes, Xenoblade in there but not Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and no Octopath? Right…

  24. Doom… "It is absolutely not for children"……..My kids, -Dad, that is our favorite game!

  25. By now the Switch has such a good library NL really should be doing a Top 50 or even Top 100 ranked list. Make it 2 hours long and I’d still watch it. Also get some shoot ‘em ups in there, the genre has had a massive resurgence recently and a huge number of great ‘shmups’ are available on Nintendo’s hybrid console.

  26. Sad that fire emblem three houses didn’t make the list :/

  27. i watched this entire video with 1.5x playback speed and it seemed normal.

  28. ^ Which Zelda game is the most popular? I am new to the Switch.

  29. Going to have lots and lots of fun with Paper Mario

  30. There's not a lot of lists I agree for NSW here on yt, but yours definitely yes! Nier should be on this list as well.

  31. Hheeellllooooo stupid I mean lovely people

  32. Solid list…I would add TMNT: Shredders Revenge, Octopath Traveler, Dragon Quest XI, Mario Maker 2

  33. Worst console ive ever bought. Old games remade, shooters on 30fps. Has a few pearls but generally its shit

  34. when the best switch games are older gen games from other consoles. thats sad

  35. I would like to remind you that you still havent done a game boy color video

  36. Man splatoon 3 would be my all time favorite game if it wasn’t notorious for crashing mid game and pikman was that type of game I picked up played for ten minutes and never touched it again😂

  37. Most nintendo games these days have unhealthy looking colors compared to a Miyazaki film (princess mononoko, howls castel)
    :^/ they are going the way of xbox and ps…

    Niiiiice game choices dude…

  38. Getting my switch soon this video is just in time
