  2. Uchiha Aniq on March 14, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Is ninja storm 4 worth it? Or little nightmares 2



  3. The Lemony Bard on March 14, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    0:40 12,021? Is that a Kurzgesagt reference in a Nintendo Life video I see?



  4. Geekpool Corps on March 14, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Nobody tried to bei like Pikmin…. Overlord one and two would like a word.



  5. DumbStar on March 14, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Scott Pilgrim!



  6. Dark Glass on March 14, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    PSVITA still untouchable by the looks of it



  7. Jonathan Schroeder on March 14, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Nintendo of America needs to relocate to Portland



  8. Unforgivable Games on March 14, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    lol i broke my copy of 3d world just in time so it come out in the switch good timeng



  9. The Guardian of BFN on March 14, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    pvz bfn is an great game and it will be better at the switch so buy pvz bfn 😘



  10. Varok Saurfang on March 14, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    2020-2021 implies that encompasses 2 whole years 🙄 how about waiting til 2021 is over first to make this review?



  11. Ace Streamline on March 14, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    Astral Chain is the bomb.



  12. Tyrone Jr on March 14, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Are any of these gonna be free?



  13. Austin Baker on March 14, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    If this is the best the switch has to offer other than Pokémon I can’t get excited about it.



  14. Josh _ on March 14, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Isn’t it sad how the top 21 games on switch at the 4th year aren’t Nintendo games? Shows how weak the switch IP line up. Probably one of the worst yet.



  15. Vance Jones on March 14, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Bravely Default 2?



  16. ChrisSoCalm on March 14, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    I finally got a switch. I grew up on Nintendo but I haven’t played Nintendo in a long time. Glad to be back



  17. Saulo Silva on March 14, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Ok I would already buy the switch, but we dont have games to play for real, do we? haha

    Its a fckn Nintendo Box, play Nintendo cause theres nothing else to do haha good thing I got a good PC



  18. K M on March 14, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Renaissance: where are my How I Met Your Mother fans?



  19. Adam Wesley Stewart on March 14, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    NO TAXI CHAOS??????? Lol jk



  20. trust your force on March 14, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    I instantly perked up when I heard Philistine.



  21. ewan4n8 on March 14, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Duuuuuuuude 12,021 of the human era, i love you



  22. Tonka343 on March 14, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Year-old ports from other consoles (which are still amazing) being on these lists are so sad, we need more good new games andddd a switch pro (hyrule warriors calamity has horrible frame rate and like pokemon sword, looks flat). Switch needs to up their games and system if they want to catch up to the amazing games of the 3DS or catch up to other consoles! (Idk if this means anything, but my switch is V1)



  23. J B on March 14, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Without a doubt the best AC? Nah. The interactions with the animals aren’t as good and honestly that’s more the point for me.



  24. Oversaturated Shrimp on March 14, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    All these ports, but not Jet Set Radio Future 🥲



  25. stan jones on March 14, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Glad to see pikmin getting some love



  26. Josh _ on March 14, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Just a paid Nintendo hype man promoting the product of who pays his bills.



  27. P D on March 14, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Those games are all crap



  28. Maurice Jones on March 14, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Half you nerds want even born too be Nintendo fan girls



  29. paolo on March 14, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    No xenoblade Chronicles 2???



  30. Mahaan on March 14, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    00:40, it’s not really the day after the sixty first day is it, though? It’s the (31+28+1) day after the 60th day.



  31. Kris Q on March 14, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Is it sad that I bought Mario 3D world and I haven’t even played Bowsers fury yet?



  32. PawnSt0rm on March 14, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Xenoblade Chronicles X is probably the best xenoblade game. And it was botw before botw.



  33. T Bartja on March 14, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    I know it’s not for everyONE, but Wonderful 101 is an incredible game that definitely makes the top of my 2020 list 🙂



  34. Shizane on March 14, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    400th comment 👍🏽



  35. John Patrick Gasulas on March 14, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    That’s a lot of games that you love to death



  36. K. Irvin on March 14, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    No Scott Pilgrim???



  37. Ken on March 14, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Dude’s name is Mah-rio. I know accents are accents but names are names too, for instance mispronounce Gloucestershire or Worcestershire in front of an English person and see what happens



  38. Average Records on March 15, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Immortals Fenyx Rising didn’t make that list?

    If you had to recommend 1 game between Rhe Messenger & Cyber Ninja which would it be? I’m looking to add 1 of them to my collection. Thanks in advance



  42. Corina Adrianna on March 15, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Ugh okay I bought animal crossing and I sadly don’t like it /:



  43. Darragh on March 15, 2021 at 12:04 am

    What smooth brains out there find Warriors games complicated



  44. Peter L on March 15, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Can we get a top switch games of all time video?



  45. Unforgivable Games on March 15, 2021 at 12:08 am

    also thank you im trading in my old games can’t wait to get 3d world or something else lol

    Edit: browsers furry it is



  46. Damien Ross on March 15, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Oceanhorn 2 was a good game too



  47. CatDaddyLurk on March 15, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Just here to see which games I’m going to emulate on my PC



  48. Iván Joaquín Rodríguez on March 15, 2021 at 12:10 am

    The inclusion of Origami King immediately turned this list worthless. There are countless of games on Switch better crafted than that Paper Mario, unfortunately



  49. ilikevideojunk on March 15, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Trash list



  50. Lagranarob - on March 15, 2021 at 12:13 am

    I dont get it, why would you pay 300 dollars to play play station 2 games in the switch. Graphics are trash. At this point Nintendo fans are the equivalent of Apply users, pay more for an inferior system.
