Splatoon 2! I spent over 1000 hours on iy

If BotW hadn't been so good Splatoon2 would have easily taken it for me.  Love that game and can't wait for 3.  I've gotten to play that one with several of the users here and had a blast.

I really think, in light of the lack of parity in this poll, that a followup should happen that removes BotW. I'm sure non-Nintendo fans on this site wouldn't appreciate back-to-back Nintendo themed polls, but it would certainly be fun to see which title would be the true runner up.



Xenoblade chronicles 2, bear in mind Mario kart 8 and Zelda are also on wiiU so they are not switch exclusives. I might have chosen Zelda otherwise.

It was BOTW until smash came out!

I played games for over 30 years now, and I still don't get what's so special about smash, it actually makes no sense to see characters from different universes fighting each other, more so when most those characters are not fighters themselves.

I played smash first with gamecube, never got into it, tried it on wiiU again, still don't see the appeal. Nowhere near Soulcalibur or even tekken, dead or alive.

I wish I could really get into it, because apparently it should be amazing, I just cant see what's so special.

With that said I would never put a fighter on top of best games list, fighters lack story, content, open world. I see fighters just as I see fifa games, you get some characters and you fight, same thing over and over and over, somehow they still managed to make it fun with soulcalibur.

For the same reason I would also never put an online only game on top of any list, because you need to pay for a subscription and you need to pay for internet, so that's 50 for subscription + 400 for internet + 60 for the game = 510 dollars to play the online game per year, no game should be on top of any list at those prices when stuff like witcher 3, Zelda and Xenoblade have a hundred hours or more of gameplay for 60 dollars.



Not to be a downer but botw and its not even close. Its been a criticism of mine that the switch really lacks in games with a large scope. Paeticularly open world games. And not ps360 remakes. I want new AAA games. I really wish we could get a kid icarus w botw scope or a cover based 3ps star fox like ghost recon wild lands. But my bad for getting off topic. Botw was amazing I kinda hope the new one is the same hyrule w new quests and old school dungeons.

As great as the Switch is, I still feel at this point in its life it hasn't delivered quite as many diamond-tier games as, say, systems like the N64, Wii, SNES, Xbox 360.

Still, given it's only three years old, it still has a chance to pass those systems by the end of its run, so long as its upcoming schedule isn't as barren as it currently looks.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I'd say:

1. Zelda BotW

2. Xenoblade 2

3. Smash Bros 

4. Mario Odyssey

5. Then there's sort of a dropoff but I'd say either Diablo 3 or Ori

Easily Mario Odyssey I think

Oh please, I know you can see that most people don't feel the same as you about crossovers. Sure it doesn't make sense from a narrative standpoint, but the game isn't cannon so that doesn't matter. It makes sense because that's what people want. Seeing beloved characters that don't all necessarily fit in with each other together is just cool. Plus the gameplay is really unique. Not hard to get even if you don't like the game.

I put Splatoon 2 as my number 1, so screw your self made rules about what games should count as games.



Of the ones listed in the poll, the only ones I truly like are Xenoblade 2, Bread and Three Houses. Most of Nintendo's offerings on Switch have been 'fine' for me, but that's it, nothing spectacular. The stuff that makes the machine a little special comes from third parties, and that's cool.



Breath of the Wild, followed by Odyssey and Octopath: Traveller. I honestly haven't played that many, but these are standouts for me.
