Top Rated Nintendo Switch games

This page lists the top rated Nintendo Switch games split across a few categories. You can see the "All-time" top rated games, new games released in the last 30 days, and games released in the current year. This is to create some diversity in the lists, so you don't always see the same games at the top.

Ratings are calculated from the reviews we store from our carefully selected review partners. Games need to have at least 3 review scores to be included in these lists.

Check out our Top Rated - by month page to see the top games for each month since the Switch launched.
