Here’s my collection of Nintendo Switch games, complete with personal ratings for each. To provide some insight, I lean away from shooting games and platformers like Super Mario Brothers. Instead, my preferences align more with story-driven adventures, narrative puzzle games, and intriguing mysteries. This is the perfect list for cozy gamers looking for something new and fun to try.
Overboard: In this thrilling narrative adventure, you play as a cunning actress who has just committed murder on a ship, and you must cleverly manipulate the passengers and crew to escape suspicion and justice. I still haven’t won, but I’m genuinely enjoying replaying this game. 8/10
Tangle Tower: Enter a mysterious mansion on a secluded hilltop and solve a murder like no other. Unravel the twisted relationships of the intriguing inhabitants and decipher perplexing clues to uncover the truth. The music in this game is spectacular. And I beat it in a weekend.
Down in Bermuda: Embark on an enchanting puzzle-solving journey as you guide a shipwrecked aviator through a series of captivating islands filled with mind-bending challenges, magical mysteries, and quirky characters. The only downside, I don’t really like the art so I don’t play it as much. 6/10
Old Man’s Journey: Join an elderly adventurer on an emotional odyssey as he sets out to reconcile with his past. Navigate through breathtaking landscapes by manipulating the terrain, revealing memories, and uncovering his life story. I love the way this game looks, but the game interface is still confusing. 3/10
Lost in Play: Immerse yourself in a whimsical world filled with creative puzzles and interactive toys. Explore this delightful playground, where curiosity and imagination are your best companions. This is my favorite game I’ve played in my entire life thus far. It made me so happy. 10/10
Agent A: Step into the stylish shoes of Agent A, a secret agent on a mission to apprehend the enigmatic enemy spy, Ruby La Rouge. Solve intricate puzzles, explore a mid-century modern world, and outsmart your cunning adversary to save the day. While I don’t love the art, I fully love the premise and the game mechanics. It took a few weeks to beat this one, but I loved every minute of it. 9/10
Jenny LeClue: Dive into a charming, coming-of-age mystery adventure where you play as Jenny, an aspiring young detective determined to uncover the truth behind a series of puzzling events in her seemingly peaceful town. This was one of my favorite games I’ve played. The narration of the characters is phenomenal. 9/10
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: Join Scott Pilgrim and his friends in this retro-inspired beat ’em up game as they battle Ramona Flowers’ seven evil exes to win her heart, all while rocking out to the iconic chiptune soundtrack. This is surprisingly difficult and I usually end the gameplay drenched in sweat. 7/10
Fall Guys: Experience the whimsical chaos of a battle royale game like no other, where jellybean-shaped contestants compete in zany obstacle courses, wild mini-games, and outrageous challenges to become the last Fall Guy standing. A fun way to spend 20-30 minutes. It’s also free. 8/10
