Best Switch Games: 30 Stellar Nintendo Experiences

From Monster Hunter Rise to Metroid Dread, here are the best Switch games available in 2022.


The Nintendo Switch has an absolutely massive library filled with great games, including a stable of first-party exclusives and robust third-party support. The library has only grown in quality in 2021, which can make it hard to decide which games are worth your time and money. With that in mind, we've rounded up the best Nintendo Switch games--titles that we believe are essential for every Switch owner. The Nintendo Switch's library became even more impressive in 2021 thanks to a wide variety of new exclusives. And 2022 looks to be one of the biggest years for the console yet, with Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Advance Wars, Bayonetta 3, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, and the Breath of the Wild sequel (hopefully) on the horizon.

If you own other consoles, be sure to check out our guides to the best PS5 games, best PS4 games, best Xbox Series X games, and best Xbox One games. While many of the games listed below are suitable for younger folks, we also have a dedicated list of the best Nintendo Switch games for kids, too.
