10 Nintendo Switch Game Recommendations
- Animal Crossing : New Horizons
I have been a fan of the Animal Crossing series for my whole life. The new Nintendo Switch game, released in March of 2020, had everything there was to love about the original GameCube with some fresh additions. With the ability to play single player, multiplayer, and online multiplayer, this game is versatile, relaxing, and fun.
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
You can never go wrong with a good Mario game. Mario Kart 8 fills the void that Diddy Kong Racing for the Nintendo 64 left in my heart. The graphics are great and allow you to play split screen without getting a headache.
- Super Mario Party
This game is incredibly addicting! I love pulling it up when the family is all together for the holiday season. You can play the core board game style game, or you can play the mini games you have unlocked. Personally I prefer to play the mini games. The friendly competition is always a lot of fun and good for some laughs.
- Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 : The Black Order
There is an Ultimate Alliance game on the Playstation 2 that I used to play with my siblings growing up. That game was my primary introduction to the Marvel world, so this game was nostalgic for me. You get to choose your team of heroes to go through the storyline, either single player or multiplayer. It is a typical fighting / adventure game that is easy to get the hang of and fast-paced fun.
- Donkey Kong Country : Tropical Freeze
Another adventure style game, Donkey Kong Country is great if you are looking for a game to play with your siblings when you have some free time. It is a relaxing, simple, and uplifting game with cute visuals.
- Golf With Your Friends
This golf game can be played single player, multiplayer, or online multiplayer. I prefer the online version since each player can take their shots at the same time and keep the game moving. The game is a lot of fun, but there are some levels that are infuriating to navigate (though it makes for some good laughs when you are playing with others.) You get to customize your ball with different colors and hats, which is a cute touch.
- Mexican Train Dominoes Gold
Dominoes reminds me of the Uno card game, so I absolutely love this game that is currently only $2 on the online shop. You have the ability to adjust the difficulty and amount of computers you play against, so as you get better you can adjust it accordingly to keep it challenging.
- Tricky Doors
This fun puzzle game is completely free. Tricky Doors is reminiscent of these old computer and phone games where you have to follow the clues to complete the puzzle. It is a lot of fun to play and the controls are easy to master.
- Super Mario 64
You need the online expansion pack to play this game, but it is a ton of fun. I had a Nintendo 64 when I was a kid, so this game is truly a blast from the past. I miss when games like this were popular— level-based games with a lighthearted story.
- Just Dance 2022
I never though I would play a Just Dance game, but I am glad that I did. This multiplayer game makes it easy and fun to exercise and work on your rhythm with your family and friends. There is also an affordable subscription service to unlock a large collection of songs which I found to be well worth the money.
