Wait what? Either Mario Kart or Smash hasn't made the top 3?!

Absolutely shocked that Links Awakening would make it over 1 of those, madness.

Little shocked like you Andy, not all Nintendo games in Top 10 yet only 7 votes was it and Balla & myself have mentioned the WiiU effect all ready to might be only 5 peeps voting on ports.

Meaning quality indies and Celeste can get in.

Links Awakening is great because it's Zelda, was new to me and more of remake, why even though Skyward Sword which Smurf mentioned might be good but it's just a HD remaster, I'd never consider.

Do people not talk about Hollow Knight any more? I still see it mentioned - especially how waiting for Silksong has become something of a Nintendo Direct meme!

That, Celeste and Hades are like the holy trinity of indies and all well-deserve their place - even if Balla is right. Celeste is far too low!

Not played the Switch Fire Emblem, and if I did I would highly doubt it would make my top 10.

So far, Link's Awakening is the only one that for sure wouldn't have made my list (though the rest would be in a different order no doubt).

Really glad Hades, Hollow Knight and Celeste are getting attention though.

Aye, as good as the Nintendo big hitters are (and I'm sure a few will still be in that top 3) when I think of the best games on Switch indie stuff is what I tend to think of first.

Aye, staggered that we're going to have a top 10 without one of those two unless we get a total shock and one of the two obvious games we're all expecting doesn't make it.

As for the results we got, happy to see that! The only one that didn't make my top 10 was Celeste as hard-as-nails platformers aren't as much my jam as some other games on my list, but I've no complaints about it placing. Obviously, delighted to see Hollow Knight, FE:TH and Hades all chart.

Anyone want to predict our top 3? I think it'll be Mario Kart, Odyssey and then BOTW at the top. I think the folks that have voted will rate Mario Kart much more highly than they would rate Smash, which is a travesty. Crying or Very sad

I'll go Smash, BOTW, Odyssey, I reckon 8 being a re-release will cost it.

This list isn’t worth the toilet paper it’s written on if Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe aren’t both on it.

Balladeer should have really used his professional Moderator judgement and his sense of decency when he got those votes for Link’s Awakening and Fire Emblem, and just said ‘bollocks to that, I’m not counting those’. For shame, Balladeer, for shame.

Balla doesn't even have Kart in his Top 25 Switch games, he was never going to do that.

SMASH, BotW then Odyssey at Number 1.

Imagine being salty about Link's Awakening!

Mario Kart 8 is a port of a WiiU game, I think that's a very fair reason for it to not rank. Smash Bros meanwhile I just don't really care about - but I get that others do and it has earned its presumed third place.

Mario Kart 8 not making the list is exactly what you would do if you were deliberately spiting me for not voting, so fair fucks I suppose.

If it was just that ported like Zelda, Zelda II, LttP, OoT or MM via a NSO or even Skyward Sword being just a HD remaster, maybe even BotW being a port (launched on same day that get more of a Switch game) from Wii U like Mario Kart 8 then that be fair point.

Yet this is almost a remake, and no one would be saying any of this in a 3DS vote if OoT 3D placed.

I abstained from voting as I've not played enough. But if the best game on Switch is a Wii-U port, that doesn't negate the list, it just demonstrates how good Mario Kart 8 is. Similarly, Grand Theft Auto 5 is a 360/PS3 game, but it's valid having it in Xbox One/PS4 best of lists - it's where most of the players played it.

Yeah it's personal preference as when I think best PS4 it's God of War etc, Xbox One Sunset Overdrive, then that gen Red Dead Redemption 2 not older games.

I'm in the mind of this is what makes this system or gen great, why Ratchet is like the only good game this current gen so far.

Link's Awakening isn't a port. I can understand someone objecting to it on grounds of it being a remake, if that's what they want to do!

I played Mario Kart 8 on WiiU before Switch. What makes Mario Kart 8 more of a "Switch" game than Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine or Super Mario Galaxy? No one is complaining that those haven't placed!

I'll give my views on remakes, remasters, and ports later I guess - although Mas has already dropped a substantial clue as to my views.  For now, though:

Interface one is interesting one, as we've come from 3DS and/or Wii U but on the Podcast it was something CW actually liked of being simple & clean, compared to his Xbox with a lot more going on.

I've not voted in any of this either. I don't really use my Switch all that much these days, in fact I haven't for over a couple of years now. It's literally just been the machine for MH: Rise, Mario and Pokémon. I'd probably have voted something along the lines of:

1. Hades
2. MK8
3. Mario Odyssey
4. Smash
5. Slay the Spire
6. Hollow Knight
7. FE: Three Houses
8. BOTW
9. Animal Crossing
10. Octopath Traveller?

The top four are the big ones for me, with everything else being interchangeable. I've not really played all that many games on it since Fire Emblem came out so I didn't really feel like voting because I'm not committed to the order of pretty much everything outside the top 4. I felt like submitting four games would be a bit of a cop out.

To me MK8 is 100% a Switch game. The Switch is where I could actually play it either with other people locally or online. Who the fuck outside of us nerds owned a Wii U? Mario Kart is a party game, it's not the same without other people. It might have been born on the Wii U, but the Switch is its spiritual home.

I think the GTA:V comparison gjones made is really apt. I can see how the individual might view MK8 as more a Wii U game because that's where they played it, but for me there's too much time spent playing MK8 on Switch for me to not view it as a Switch game.
