The Switch is quickly becoming one of Nintendo’s most successful and influential systems ever. There’s something unique about carrying a home-console-quality gaming device everywhere you go. Figuring out what to play, though—that’s getting harder every year, as the roster of first-party and indie games grows deeper and deeper. Thankfully, WIRED has plenty of Nintendo fans with opinions, and we’ve put our heads together to compile a list of the best Switch games. We’ve listed the digital version for most of them here, so make sure you get a spacious MicroSD card to store all your game files. (We recommend this one.)
Updated for February 2020: We added some of the latest releases including Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition, Untitled Goose Game, and Pokémon Sword & Shield.
