1. Xenoblade 2 (and Torna DLC)
2. Mario Kart 8 DX
3. Breath of the Wild
4. Mario Odyssey
5. Smash Bros. Ultimate

Bit generic, I guess - but I don't think many will have XC2 at the top!

Really difficult to narrow it down to 5, games I've loved like into the breach, oxenfree, west of loathing etc narrowly missing out.

What are yours?
I deliberately didn't list mine as I've only had the Switch a matter of weeks. I originally bought it for Skyrim and Warframe and although it's mighty impressive that they run so well on a handheld, I find the aiming in both too tough. So I wouldn't include them. In all honesty I was ready to return it for a refund. I'm not into the Nintendo exclusives. I tried to make an exception for MK8 but it's not for me and hence why I have it up for sale in the classifieds.

Then I discovered the Indie games. I've never even considered touching these on any other platform but they seem ideally made for a handheld. I haven't played a 2d platformer for example since Rainbow Islands on the Spectrum 48. I got Dead Cells and love it even though it's really hard (I haven't managed to defeat a boss or elite yet). Got Celeste and it's the same. Great platformer but really tough.

So my top 5 would be

1. Dead Cells
2. Celeste
3. Steamworld Heist

But that's it so can't make a top 5 yet.

My main motivation for this thread was to get some ideas for other games. I've just rented Octopath Traveler based on a mention on this thread but haven't tried it enough to comment yet.
