You should definitely add Octopath Traveler to your list, but if you start with Xenoblade, don’t be shy with the expansion. It’s a pretty good addition to main game once you complete it.

I hadn't heard of it until today, but I'll definitely check it out. Liking the aesthetic from the screenshots.

You should probably listen to some tracks from the soundtrack too. This is incredible stuff.

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle

But to correct someone else in this thread: It is not a RPG, it is a turn based strategy game, the gameplay is more or less exactly like X-Com

Sonic mania
crash team racing
Yoshi crafted world(when it releases ) if you go by metacritic If its good or bad?

I imagine there's a good chance you've played Okami. If not, then I can't recommend it enough. Very similar to the 3D Zelda games. Beautiful HD graphics, involving story, lots to do, good integration of some touch screen controls.

I'd like to underline the recommendations for Octopath, Xenoblade and Captain Toad but one of the great things about Switch is that you don't have to pay full price to get an amazing gaming experience. Of the shorter games that came over from PC do try Inside, Abzu and Gris which are wonderful little contained experiences that don't cost the earth and merit replaying. The best approach is to come up with a longlist of things you want to play and just wait for them to be on offer, since discounts have been rather common on Switch.

Also, shoutout to Diablo 3 which eats up the hours on Switch and is a very polished port.

FPS? while it's a TPS, try Splatoon 2

As for RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, obviously. Also, give Golf Story a shot, really worth it. The Grandia I and II remasters and the Final Fantasy remasters might be interesting if you missed them before. Edit: How could I only forget Octopath Traveler? Get it! Right Now!

I don't know what other consoles you own, so not sure if I should suggest some multiplat titles which didn't make it to PC.

If RTS includes Tower Defense games, there are a couple of them on the Switch, most notably Aegis Defenders and PixelJunk Monsters 2. Also, there's Constructor Plus and Swords and Soldiers I and II (only played the first one on my Wii U, not bad at all, but totally moronic plot) as interesting RTS titles. Valkyria Chronicles 1 and 4 may be very interesting for you too, as they blend RTS, Turn-based Tactics and RPG into one

Oh, and on a general note, look at the link in my signature. It hasn't been updated for a while now (really need to find some time for that!), but might give you some pointers.

You have already Smash Bros and Zelda, other few must have Switch games are Splatoon 2, Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart.
If you love 2D platformers, buy DKTF and NSMBU DX.

For you, like many others have said, Xenoblade and Octopath traveller. To play with your son i would recommend Mario party, kart and odyssey. Just about anything Mario really.



In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

These games should keep you entertained and fill a lot of genre holes.
Zelda BOTW
Mario Odyssey
Mario Kart 8
Octopath Traveller
Smash Brother Ultimate
Splatoon 2

Apart from the obvious recommendations (Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Splatoon), the two South Park games available are insanely fun/funny and are always on sale. Also:

-Doom and Wolfenstein were ridiculously good, considering the limitations of the hardware
-Do you like beat em ups? There's Raging Justice, Double Dragon 1 and 2, River City Ransom (Nintendo Switch Online), Capcom's Beat Em Up Bundle
-Civilization VI is insanely fun, once you wrap your head around it.
-Dark Souls is frustrating as hell, but it's a great game and it's so cool being able to take the game with you, anywhere.
-Golf Story.
-If you liked the old SCUMM games of old (Maniac Mansion, Full Throttle, Monkey Island), Thimbleweed Park is a must!
-Hollow Knight! A game that every Switch owner should try!
