Hollow Knight
Celeste
Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Breath of the Wild is really good.  I hear they just came out with Witcher 3 on Switch.  Idk how the port will be but that was an amazing game on PC and I highly recommend it.

Definitely seconding BotW and Hollow Knight. Currently working through second playthroughs of both. Also really like Super Mario Odyssey, Okami HD, and Enter the Gungeon. Untitled Goose Game is a lot of fun as well.

I have had a switch for a while, and I've thoroughly beat the heck out of my small collection of games. I'm sure there are still dungeons I could clear our on Zelda, but aside from that I've run dry...until today. I found they had really good sales and I downloaded 2 old HD remastered games: Turok: Dinosaur Hunter & Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. Then I also downloaded Worms W.M.D. Nothing is as numerous as playing a worms game.

Aside from those I have Zelda, Mario Odyssey, smash bros, and Lego city undercover.

I really want Metroid! They need to finish that sucker!

I'd be happy to play smash bros or worms with anyone.

I've had a Nintendo Switch for a little over a year. Since then, I have acquired a number of casual games like Uno, Puyo Puyo Tetris and Desktop Bowling. I also have some of the more popular games Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros Ultimate. I just recently acquired the collection of games including Pac-Man.

Over christmas I have been playing Jackbox. It's a collection of fun different general knowledge, comedy etc games which participants answer using their phone. If you have multiple players, I'd suggest that people check this game out if they haven't already

Maybe I’m stuck in the past, but I love all the remasters. Crash N. Sane Trilogy and Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled. The Spyro Reignited Trilogy. I’m also a huge fan of the Yugioh game that’s exclusive to Switch, Legacy of the Duelist. I admittedly haven’t played a ton though for the Switch. *shrug*
But Smash seems like a blast.

Are my top 5 in no particular order.

I've been thinking about getting Animal Crossing but I've never played an Animal Crossing game, and I don't know if it is for me, unless I go buy it.

It's a big price to pay if I'm not going to make use of it...

So far, I’m LOVING “Bayonetta 2,” “Astral Chain,” and “Smash Ultimate.” But then again, I’ve been a major Bayo fan for a while now. =)

I've got to add to my list Animal Crossing: New Horizons (seems to be on a lot of peoples lists) and Hollow Knight (I know HK isn't a switch exclusive, but it's what I own it on).

I can’t reccomend Three Houses enough. While it might not be the best looking game on the Switch, it’s one of the best Fire Emblem games in a long time. The difficulty is overall easier than usual which makes it great for beginners. The story and lore is pretty interesting, and the music is great. The gameplay is also very customizable. Unlike most Fire Emblem games, where characters have pre-defined roles, a lot of your characters start out as blank slates you mold over time. While there are optimal paths, meme builds can also viable, to the point that one character who is design to be a mage’s best build is actually an axe-fighter. Later on they added Maddening mode, which provides a tough but (usually) fair challenge. I sunk tons of time into this game and I’m still playing it. One thing the game isn’t too clear about though is class progression. For whatever reason, a lot of the ultimate classes aren’t worth it. The biggest example is the “upgrade” to Swordmaster, which actually slows you down and makes you hit weaker, and it can’t even use the special attack Swordmaster gives you. Cavaliers are also a trap on pretty much everyone but Byleth and Dimitri. If you want mobility, go for a flying class. Overall it’s a 9/10 masterpiece that can easily give you over 300 hours. If you only want to play it once though, choose Dimitri.
The Wonderful 101 Remastered comes out today. If you didn’t play it on the Wii-U, it’s very good. It’s also cheaper than it was on the Wii-U, so you have no excuse to skip it this time!

I must say, as a pretty faithful Fire Emblem fan who has recently gotten to play Three Houses, it’s kind of let me down. Granted, I’m not super far in the game yet. I’m on maybe chapter 6 on Claude’s route (just encountered the first monster). But overall, the characters aren’t as enjoyable as I’ve found those in other games to be, and the choice of house didn’t feel like that big of a choice if you can just recruit characters from other houses. I guess you were just picking your lord? And I assume the plot deviates? It just seems like Fates handled the choice thing much better, and the characters were likable, and I’d even say the difficulty was more approachable. Plus I love the idea of child characters, and Three Houses took that away. While it does add a lot of mechanics through battalions and exploring the monastery and such, these elements simply aren’t fun for me, as I’m constantly finding myself wanting to skip weekend segments when they pop up while also knowing that I’ll pay in the next chapters to come for not utilizing them. It’s not a bad game by any means, but it’s not what I was expecting with a new Fire Emblem game personally. It’s almost as if the combat component of the game has taken a backseat to the school stuff, and the plot right now is pretty meandering. I’m really hoping things change and pick up in the second half of the game.

I’m really hoping things change and pick up in the second half of the game.
I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree. I liked the school segments since it felt like almost everything I did had some meaningful impact, but I can see how some could find it tedious.
Fates and Three Houses handle the choice differently, and I’ll admit it wasn’t clearly advertised. With Fates you were playing different games, while with Three Houses the routes are mostly the same gameplay wise, and you instead choose your cast. Edelgard has the most unique route, but even then you’re playing the same maps except maybe you start at a different location or maybe there’s fire. The plots do differ as much as they can, with some focusing more on the actual conflict going on while others focus more on the lore of the world.
Personally I wasn’t a big fan of Fates. I really value the plot and characters in Fire Emblem and I feel Fates was lacking in that aspect. I also don’t like how the child units were handled in that game. I’m fine with them existing so long as they have a legitimate reason to like in Genealogy or Awakening. If they’re just thrown in I’d rather not have them.
To not derail the thread completely, I also reccomend the Gunvolt games. They’re kind of like the Mighty Number 9 of Megaman X except actually good. Luminous Avenger iX is the best, but despite seeming like a standalone spin-off, certain lategame plottwists that are supposed to have a big impact won’t unless you played Gunvolt 1 and 2, which are available on the Switch as the Azure Striker Pack. If you have a Shovel Knight amiibo, you can even scan it in Gunvolt 2 to unlock a fight against him.

Smash ultimate, breath of the wild, Mario odyssey. Those are the three games that you absolutely need to call yourself a switch owner. Some other good ones are Mario Kart, the nes and snes online games, and Luigi’s mansion.

Hello Everyone I love my Nintendo Switch and I could spend a ton of hours playing it. My favorite game so far is Super Smash bros on there? My friends and I  play it quite a bit and we always have such a good time when we are playing. We get good laughs out of it when one of us gets flown off the map lol. :laughing

Katamari Damacy: Reroll is a great port of a classic. Ion Fury is a great old school style shooter on the same engine as the Duke Dukem games, and in that vein I can't wait for Dusk on Switch.

Since Epic took over Psyonix, you can now play rocket league online without needing NSO. Yeah the game is a bit pricey, but now it's worth the price more than ever. It even syncs progress across devices!

Just make sure to set the graphics to performance because then it plays in (mostly) 60fps, and the difference isn't too noticeable.

I'm not a salesperson, I swear! :laughing

+1 for Katamari Reroll.

Haven't really played much lately since even playing games feel like a chore these days. My library includes voez, Disgaea 4, DQ11, and DQ Builders. I'm waiting for Rune Factory 5 to drop and debating whether to get Sakuna.

Sadly, the most recent Nintendo thing I have is a 3DS, but I'm enjoying what is offered by its version of Smash 4, particularly as my main, one Cloud Strife. I'm also collecting Pokèmon games compatible and setting them up with all the starters while I wait until I've the money for a Switch that I may up to Pokèmon Let's Go, Gen 8, the new coming Sinnoh stuff and Smash Ultimate, complete with the One Winged Angel himself, Sephiroth.

I'm currently playing Immortals: Fenyx Rising, and I have to say it is one heck of a great game and runs very well on Switch.

If you like Zelda: Breath of the Wild, then you will like this game. They clearly reskinned that game and introduced Greek Mythology! The game is surprisingly funny and engaging to play. They don't spare the details either. If you don't know much about the old gods, they were morally horrible, and it makes for funny banter between Zeus and Prometheus. That banter is interspersed throughout the game as you adventure along.

There is plenty of adventuring, collecting, fighting, light puzzle solving, and humor. Enjoy!

I haven't gotten to play that many yet, but so far Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey are at the top.

So this has changed a lot. (I never actually got to play Mario Odyssey, I was going on what I’d seen of the game).
Now that I’ve played several Switch games I’d have to say that Metroid: Dread is my favorite and close behind it is Monster Hunter:Rise.
