Another good one from Nintendo Switch! The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is a randomly generated action-shooter that features rogue-like elements and heavy RPG. In this game, all you need to do is to follow Isaac on his journey to find bizarre treasures that change his form and give him supernatural powers for fighting off droves of mysterious creatures. As a player, you need to discover these secrets and fight the Isaac way to safety.
This thing…sucks. Launching with barely any games, gimmicky, overpriced compared to considerably better console, this probably spells the beginning of the end for Nintendo in the console market. The graphics are mediocre and the controls are absolutely abysmal. We sold ours after a day, fortunately for more than we paid because of Nintendos false scarcity that they’ve created. Don’t be duped into buying this joke. You’ll regret it.
Everybody with a Switch knows about Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, but there are many great games for the system beyond Nintendo’s core classics. With success comes support, and the Switch has already seen far more support from both the major third-party publishers and independent developers than the Wii U saw after its launch. The Switch’s digital eShop is full of games that you can download, and the Switch racks at most retailers already outnumber the Wii U offerings still on display. If you need help cutting through the clutter, let us point you towards the best of the best. Here are the 15 games you most need to play for the Nintendo Switch, along with 18 other honorable mentions that are all worth a download.
Along with Yoshi, Luigi, and Peach, Mario joins forces with the Rabbids (who started life in Rayman and went on to star in their own series) to solve puzzles and and fight enemies in a world that combines elements from both franchises.
I realize this is still early in the consoles life cycle but so far besides Zelda there is almost no reason to own one. No apps like Netflix, Youtube, or even a Web Browser and only a handful of games. If Zelda alone doesn’t sell you on the console you might as well wait.
So you’re one of the lucky gamers to get your hands on a Nintendo Switch. Like any other new gaming setup, you’ll probably want to grab some accessories to go along with it. Whether it’s a case, controller, or stand, you’ll find that just the right addition can make your Switch setup more complete.

That said, you might have to do a little homework in order to find a console you can place under the Christmas tree. Here are your best options for buying a Switch.
Tight turns and big jumps in Fast RMX channel the best moments of F-Zero and the Wipeout series. This 60 frames-per-second racing game bundles all of the courses offered as DLC on the Wii U version plus six new tracks. Once you wrap your head around Fast RMX’s energy transfer system, where you have to quickly swap to the same matching color of a boost pad in order to get a burst of speed, you’ll have everything you take out your competitors online and in local matches.
BD&A offers a snap-on folio that covers the display when not in use and gives the Switch a few more options when in its kickstand mode for portable gameplay. If you plan to travel a lot with your Switch, this $24 accessory is perfect for keeping it safe.
A gentle farming role-playing game that begins with someone chucking in their corporate cubicle job to run away to the country and live off the land. Stardew Valley is unquestionably the best value indie game on Switch: a full farming year lasts 20 hours and you can continue playing it pretty much indefinitely. Beware: during quiet moments at work, you may find yourself hiding in the toilets in order to harvest virtual strawberries.
Nobody imagined Mario and Rayman’s Raving Rabbids would make such a wonderful match. We especially didn’t expect the pairing to translate into a deep, compelling and unbelievably charming strategy title.
With the Nintendo Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, you will be able to hit the road and play anytime, anywhere. The game gives you an opportunity to race with your friends or battle them in a revised battle mode on new and returning battle courses. Ideally, you will be able to play locally in up to 4-palyer multiplayer.
Ubisoft’s Rabbids come toe-to-toe with Mario, Luigi, Peach and Yoshi in this turn-based title. Take a team of three through the Mushroom Kingdom and beat back the Rabbid invasion. This game takes familiar faces, mixes in some Rabbid-flavoured chaos and wraps it all up in XCOM-style gameplay that’ll have even hardened gamers hooked. Balance weapons, tactics, special abilities and status effects. Earn coins and skill orbs to upgrade your kit and build an unbeatable team.
What are the best games on Nintendo Switch? That’s a big question for any platform, and a very fun one to answer. During the process of putting together this list of Switch games, we took the following criteria into account: 1) How much fun we had at home and on the go with these games, 2) We weighed elements like longevity/staying power, influence, and innovation, 3) We opted for new games or ports with added content over games that were straight ports.

We’ve highlighted our picks of the best Nintendo Switch bundles below. Just be aware that they don’t really offer much of a discount over buying the items separately. We’ll steer you clear of console bundles that actively charge you more than the regular combined RRP (not cool, guys!).
The Nintendo Switch is the hottest console out right now, and it’s not showing any signs of slowing down. Nintendo’s hybrid machine is home to such hits as Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Splatoon 2, all of which you can enjoy on your big TV or take on the go. And with a diverse library that includes indies like Stardew Valley and Rocket League and mature AAA romps like Doom and Bayonetta, you’ll have no trouble finding something that suits your tastes.
Another home classic now given a new lease of life on Switch is LA Noire. It’s unusual to see 18-rated games on Nintendo consoles but it’s exciting that the Switch is building up a more mature library.
You get a pair with the console, but you might want to buy more to allow extra players to get involved in games like Mario Kart 8, FIFA 18 and many more. Or maybe you just fancy some different colors for your own use.
This is a nice add to my video game collection. I am enjoying the different modes this console can be played in and have taken on a trip already. The Switch is very comfortable and makes for a great gaming experience on the go.
The second Dynasty Warriors-inspired collaboration between Tecmo Koei and Nintendo, Fire Emblem Warriors adds some key elements that make it a better game than its predecessor, Hyrule Warriors. From the weapons triangle to class-based powers and weaknesses to the ability to issue units combat orders right from the map, Fire Emblem’s core-franchise strategy elements make for a much more engaging action game. Here’s hoping it will get the same great post-launch support and flesh out the limited character roster to bring more of our favorites across. – Peer Schneider
