BEST NINTENDO SWITCH GAME
The Nintendo Switch had one of the greatest first years in the history of any gaming console. Here are our nominations for the Best Nintendo Switch Game in 2017. Be sure to cast your vote in our Fans Choice Geekawards!
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
From our review for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: “Our time with the Nintendo Switch’s launch title was beautiful, thrilling, nostalgic, peaceful, thought-provoking, and challenging. What we have here is an amazing base with which the “perfect Zelda” canbe made. Breath of the Wild is the template that offers a way to build a peerless overworld, but needs some substance to fill it.”
Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
The classic party game that everyone loves made its way to the Nintendo Switch in its triumphant first year on the market. Every Switch owner should have this beloved racer.
From our Splatoon 2 Review: “Splatoon’s inventive mechanics are just as sound and as entertaining now as they were before. If you weren’t interested when it debuted on the Wii U, then this Switch sequel is unlikely to change your mind. But, if you were a fan of the original, or just intrigued by it, then Splatoon 2 should be a solid return (or introduction) for you to all of the fun that this colorful franchise offers.”
Super Mario: Odyssey
From our Super Mario: Odyssey Review: “Super Mario Odyssey has big aspirations, and it succeeds in realizing most of them. It doesn’t quite strike the balance in its gameplay that it’s looking for, leaving the platforming element to feel a bit underwhelming. But in reaching back to its roots, injecting healthy doses of exploration and puzzle solving into its design, Super Mario Odyssey takes you on a unique, eclectic journey that no Nintendo fan should miss out on.”
Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is an enormous action RPG that had Switch owners drooling before the console even hit the market. It’s no surprise that the game is on our list for the top Switch games of 2017.
