Get these Nintendo Switch games FIRST

– I get a lot of stupid
questions Tweeted to me, DM’d to me, emailed to me, for example, “Should I buy a Nintendo Switch?” One of the most frequent
questions that I get is, “I’m going to buy a Nintendo Switch, “so what game should I get?” Now this isn’t a stupid question, but I do have a million
videos ranking the best games, for all different types of interests. But I guess I don’t
have a definitive guide. Something that I could send
to these people straight away, so that’s what we’re doing today. This video is sponsored by nobody, just Wulff Den Apparel, hah. If you wanna support the channel, we wanna make you look good. We designed everything from the ground up to avoid these other cheap,
novelty merch companies. We want you to want to wear this stuff. Check it out in the link and
description, all right here. Instead of a linear list
of games we’re going to break down the best Switch
games into three tiers, the first tier being the
absolutely must have games. Granted you should be able to tell at a pretty quick glance what games are for you and what games aren’t. Some games might be phenomenal, but they’re not for everybody. The tier structure is meant for you to consider in order of the tiers. Once you’ve considered all of
the games in the first tier and combed through it for the
ones you actually wanna play, then consider the second tier, and so on. We’re gonna try our best to
focus on single player games. If you want a game to play with friends or you want some party
games at your disposal, I have a whole video on
that so check that out. We’re also gonna try our
best to stay away from ports, but in some instances the Nintendo Switch is the best way to play certain games, so sometimes it’s unavoidable. The first tier consists
of the heavy hitters. You’ve got Mario, you’ve got Zelda, and in the future we’ll most definitely be adding Pokemon Let’s Go, and Super Smash Brothers Ultimate. What all of these have in common is that they’re Nintendo Switch
first party titles. Now one of you is saying,
“But Bub Zelda came out “on the Wii-” you shut up. These are all games that have
a very low chance of not being among one of your favorite
games on the console. You should know about all of these by now, but Breath of the Wild is
an incredibly fun sandbox, you could easily dump
hundreds of hours into. But hey, open world games
aren’t for everybody, so there’s also Mario Odyssey, which is literally for everybody. Unless you have a blood lust
and you think it’s for Sally’s, in which case you probably
have deeper issues. What’s the matter, your daddy never let you get sprinkles on your ice cream? Oh no daddy, well same difference. In my opinion it’s the best
3D Mario game ever created, and it’s certainly my
favorite game on the Switch. Everybody has played a
Mario game at least once, so you know what you’re getting with this. Pokemon Let’s Go isn’t out
at the time of this recording but it’s a remake of Pokemon Yellow, which is a favorite of my generation and it integrates some elements
from the Go mobile game. Which is somewhat of a
controversial decision, but hey, I don’t think it’s up for debate that it will probably
be one of the best games on the platform, more on that here. There’s also Super
Smash Brothers Ultimate. There has been a Smash Brothers game on every single Nintendo 3D console, and that game has always been in the top ten games of that console. Hell, I would even say top five. Not only will it be a
great multiplayer game, but I’m certain there will be
a ton to do by yourself too. More on that game here. Now if you’re serious about
your Nintendo Switch purchase you should probably
get all of these games. You will play them and you
will enjoy your time with them. If you are more of a casual, and hey nothing wrong with that, our time on this earth is limited, you should be able to tell
which ones you’d be into. And you know what, let’s
add Fortnite to tier one. Not because it’s the best game ever, but because it’s good and free, and there’s no reason not to play it. Over on tier two we have all of the games that you have to play, after you’ve already had your fun with everything in tier one. So right off the bat we have Celeste, which is so far my
favorite game of the year. It’s a very fast paced platformer. Like Super Meat Boy but
with a mid-air dash. The level design is brilliant. In the same vein there’s
also Hollow Knight, which admittedly I haven’t played yet. But a lot of people have been sending it to me and it looks really good, and eventually I’ll get to playing it. Right up there with those I
would also toss in Splatoon 2. It’s main stich is it’s a
multiplayer, which is good, but there is a massive
single player component. That has gotten a lot better
if you wanna shell out the extra money for the
recent Octo expansion. Splatoon is Nintendo’s
version of a shooter. The main objective is to cover the entire map with your ink color, but you can still dunk
on people in the process. Just don’t be that guy who only does that. By the way, if you have this game we’ll be streaming it on Sunday with some supporters and
viewers, so more on that later. I’d also toss in Sonic Mania Plus. The Plus expansion just came out, and adds two more characters
and a whole new Encore Mode that makes any two combinations of characters play like Sonic and Tails, and has you rotate between
them as you lose lives. Once you’re out of
characters it’s game over. It adds a ton of variety to the gameplay, and really revitalizes the game for me. I was super-stoked to be playing it again, on top of the fact that it’s one of the best 2D Sonic games ever made. It only took them what, 23
years to get it right again? Recently I’ve heard a lot of talk of this here Octopath Traveler. Full disclosure, I am not an RPG guy. I am not a turn based guy
and I am not a JRPG guy, so this game seems like my ultimate hell. But the internet has been ablaze over this game for the past week, so if you’re into JRPGs this
might be worth checking out, and that’s about all I gotta say about it. In the same vein we’ll toss
in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. A big fat JRPG that you could easily spend over a hundred hours in. Again, it sounds like my hell, but hey, maybe you’re a masochist? The last game in tier
two is Stardew Valley. This is a port of a game that’s
been out for a little bit, but it has been unanimously decided that the Switch version of
the game is the best version. Stardew Valley is a game that you are meant to sink into your couch with. Maybe unwind in a park, play
on a long car ride or a flight. It’s a chill game and
being able to take it with you makes it 10 times better. It’s a rehashing of the
old Harvest Moon games, since those haven’t been
doing the job too well. I’m gonna blast through tier three, since there should be a
ton of games in this tier. And just because I don’t mention it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve
the third tier treatment. Also third tier doesn’t
mean that it’s a bad game. If it were a bad game I wouldn’t be suggesting for you to buy it. It’s just in order of importance. Shovel Knight Treasure Trove
is another 2D retro style side scroller I think
everybody should play, because I think it’s great. If you’re sick of Minecraft
but like a good RPG, then Dragon Quest Builders
might be right up your alley. Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, hello. I’m sorry, sorry. Has been brought over form the Wii U, but it’s still a phenomenally unique mix of puzzle and adventure and it’s only $40. Look, we tried our best
to stay away from ports, and we tried our best to stay
away from multiplayer games, but Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is so
good it transcends all that. It doesn’t make for a phenomenal
single player experience, but you should have at
least one multiplayer game that anybody can just pick up and play and everybody knows that
Mario Kart 8, is that game. And Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Dammit this game. (laughter) Fuck Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. This has been a very long winded way of answering the simple question, what game should I get? I hope this has answered that for you. I will also leave it in
a nice convenient chart, right here on screen, right now. Screenshot it for anybody who
asks you something like that. Print it out and stick it on your wall. Cross off the ones you have,
put cute little stickers on it. So what do you guys think about this list? Is there anything on here that you haven’t played yet but
you wanna check out? Is there anything that
I should have included? Leave it in the comments below. App me on Twitter and all the
other social media garbage. Like Instagram, we need
more followers on Instagram so we can get the whole swipe
up to link to other stuff. Just help us out a little bit, go over to Instagram, we
got fun stuff over there. As always, Amazon links to
everything that we talked about will be in the description below. That helps support our channel. Along with the Wulff Den Apparel, which also helps support the channel. That link is also in the description, if you wanna look like a whole snack. And don’t forget we got

weekend, it’s hot down here. (arcade video game music)

  1. I agree with most of your opinions BUT I DRAW THE F*CKING LINE! WHEN U PUT FORTNITE IN FRONT OF MARIO KART!

  2. I think DragonBall xenoverse 2 (which u didn’t mention) should be in tier 2. Just because it’s a good game and has good quality. It’s not the best in the world but it’s a really good game for people who like the dragon ball franchise. I grew up watching dragon ball, dragon ball z, and dragon ball gt. Now I watch super. It’s awesome. Plus there’s new characters.

  3. 2 Reasons why I don't install Fortnite on my Switch

    1.: I have a PC which can handle Fortnite
    2.: I don't like Fortnite (it doesn't make fun for me)
