The Nintendo Switch has been out and about for a little over two years now! We’ve played a lot of games – old, new, indie, and more. All have been great, but here are a few that stick out in my mind. Of course, the games listed below are games I’ve played the most of.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
This game was breathtaking (no pun intended). While I’ll admit it’s not my favorite Zelda game, it’s definitely high on the list between the music (which could be soothing or intense), the graphics and open world, and the game play itself. Kris and I put a lot of hours into this game and tried to squeeze out all we could from this game before beating the main story. This is the kind of game where I wish I could turn it on for the first time again and be totally amazed and not being able to wait to see what happens next.
This is another amazing game. The graphics and music are top notch – higher than top notch. The characters are all loveable and while, I would like more character banter and development, Kris and I have a wonderful time filling in the blanks and imagining what they would all do and say on their journey together. Still, we’ve been playing this game since it came out in July 2018 and still haven’t beaten it. We’ve been taking our time and enjoying every moment of it.
Super Mario Party
I wouldn’t say this is my favorite Mario Party game, but it’s a good Mario Party game. Would I like more boards? Yes. Would I like them to be bigger and longer? Yes. Is it like Star Rush or Top 100? Yes and no. They added elements from those games and mixed them with old elements we love and it worked beautifully. Are there any vehicles? No cars, no moving together, but there is a raft… but that’s mode’s actually fun, so I can’t complain. Overall, Super Mario Party is a game we’ve played over and over again. It was definitely refreshing to get this game.
Super Smash Brothers Ultimate
While I haven’t played this one as much as I would have liked, I’ve been enjoying what I have been playing of it. Smash is a good that’s fun alone or with friends, even though it’s better with friends. World of Light is an amazing story mode and the roster is overflowing. This game was certainly made with love and I’m so happy to have the chance to own and play it.
I had to put this game on the list. Even though you don’t do much, I’ve played this game quite often and have put a lot of hours into it. It’s a mindless, relaxing game. It’s good to put on, especially if you don’t know what to play. Someday I will actually beat the game… Pokemon Quest is grinding at its finest.
