Metacritic, which most of you will know as the main gaming review aggregator, has produced a feature breaking down each console over 2017. The two top titles for the year were The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. Here’s what the site had to say about the overall state Nintendo Switch in 2017:
“It was quite a launch year for Nintendo’s newest console. The Xbox One and PS4 each have just one game scoring above 95 in their four-year histories. In less than 10 months, the Switch already has two such games, and they both rank among the 20 highest-scoring games released for any platform in Metacritic’s history.
In fact, the Switch had four games scoring 90 or higher this year, more than the PS4 and XB1 combined. In all, there were 97 positively reviewed games to choose from in 2017, so if you managed to get your hands on a Switch console, there was no shortage of quality content to choose from.”
- The highest rated Switch game of 2017 was The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with a Metascore of 97
