We know have a list of the highest scoring Switch games of the year and while it’s not a definitive list, as some of the games have a smaller number of reviews than some of the bigger ones, it does give an indication of some of the more niche Switch games you may have missed this year.

  1. The House in Fata Morgana – Dreams of the Revenants Edition – 96

  1. I have not played any First Person Shooters on switch other than Alien and OG Doom. Might have to pick up Quake if it is that good of a remaster. New Wolfenstein & Doom, happy they’re here but are graphically demanding games I should play on pc. Quake remaster on switch probably isn’t different than steam version.

  2. I’ve never even heard of the #1 game.

    And it seems weird that in a 2021 list, Metroid Dread and Fez shares the same score… for a lot of reasons.

    1. Yeah, as I mentioned some of the games in the list have high review scores but like 10 reviews. Whereas other big games have lower scores but 50 reviews.
