The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This product was recommended by Marco Baatjes from Caffeinated Face

I’m not going to lie. I was skeptical about this game at first, but the reviews were good so I gave it a shot. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the best games for Nintendo Switch that gets everything right and has led to the most breathless and open-ended gameplay experience in my opinion. It’s beautiful and vast and immersive in ways that few games have managed before. It’s also surprisingly difficult for an open world game, which might be off-putting for some, but it never feels unfair or punishing. This game can be enjoyed for hours on end and never makes gamers feel bored because there’s always something new to do.

Super Mario Party

This product was recommended by Alice Anderson from How She Golfs

My family loves playing Super Mario Party on our Nintendo Switch. It’s great because there are four of us, so we get to split up into two teams and play against each other. You can choose how long you want the full game to take, 60 minutes being the shortest. It’s set up like a board game with different levels to choose from. My son always chooses Mario as his character and my husband loves being Bowser. My daughter and I usually pick Yoshi and Princess Peach. You get to roll dice and move along the board while completing different mini games along the way. If you want to take a break, there is an option for your kids to play against the computer or they can simply play the fun mini games instead of the full version. This game is an Amazon’s Choice product and has over 19,000 reviews with an average of 5 stars because it’s amazing!

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Nintendo Switch

This product was recommended by Sam O’Brien from Watersportswhiz

No list of best Switch games is complete without a good old Mario game. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a fantastic re-release of an unbeatable kart racer game, oh yes, we’ve come a long way from Kart 64! Adding battle was the biggest, best change they made, instead of driving aimlessly through regular courses hoping you pass someone, they have created battle-specific intense courses. There are 5 different modes in battle: balloon battle, coin runner, renegade roundup, ba-bomb blast, and shine thief. All are great. Our family favorite is Renegade Roundup. Whether you’re playing on your TV or taking the action on the road in handheld mode Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a really amazing gaming experience, as smooth as butter, great music, fun sound effects, totally immersive. After a crazy time in this pandemic, this is the tonic you need in your life right now. You’ll feel like a kid at Christmas playing the most entertaining and chaotic racing series devised by evil geniuses.
