This year might have thrown us a curveball (or seven), but bearing in mind the global situation it’s been a surprisingly great one when it comes to quality video games. Nintendo’s slate might have looked relatively empty back in January, but a regular cadence of surprise announcements ended up delivering a rather impressive lineup on Switch.
And now its time to rank them for Game of the Year 2020! We’ll be putting out our Nintendo Life GOTY 2020 Staff Picks in due course, but first we’re asking you to rate your favourites for our reader-ranked list of the Top 50 Best Switch Games of 2020. The end result will be much like those of 2017, 2018, and 2019: the top 50 Switch games of the year as governed by their User Ratings in our games database.
To rate any Nintendo Switch game released this year, simply start typing the title into the search bar at the top, click the star to bring up a rating of 1-10, and click the score you feel it deserves — job done! If you need a reminder on a particular game, feel free to click the game title and check out our review and screenshots.
We’ll publish the results over the holidays, but in the meantime why not reacquaint yourself with some of the Nintendo gaming highlights of 2020?
Reader-ranked end-of-year list incoming! Thank you for rating your favourites. Feel free to discuss your favourite Switch games of the year below, and we’ll reveal the results at a suitably festive time. If you’re looking wondering about previous years, you can also find the Best Nintendo Switch Games of 2017, 2018, and 2019 in our bountiful catalogue of Switch essentials.
