Hottest Switch games from 2022 that gamers actually want this holiday season
I’ve been covering all things Nintendo Switch for four years now including reviews for Switch games. This year, there’s been an abundance of amazing Switch titles that are all worth looking at. Since many of the best Switch games are steeply discounted right now for Cyber Monday it’s the perfect time to pick some up. I made sure to post the best discounts for each game I found as well.
I’ve personally reviewed or at least played all of the games on this list and can vouge for them being amazing. Some aren’t perfect, but I’ll go into that in their descriptions. If you need help figuring you whether to buy from the eShop or from a physical store, we can help in our physical vs digital Switch games guide.
So many games released this year for Nintendo Switch and it can be hard to wade through which ones are actually worth your time. In my opinion, these are the very best Switch games to have launched in 2022. Some of them certainly have flaws, but they are still really fun to play and are the hottest titles that gamers will want this year.
If you’re not sure what to get then I recommend grabbing Pokémon Scarlet or Violet. These just released on November 18 and they’ve been so popular that they already broke records by selling an insane 10 million copies in just the first three days. I won’t lie to you, they perform horribly with lag and choppy frame rate. However, they offer the best plot of any Pokémon games, provide the first open-world Pokémon adventure, and of course have that super fun catching and collecting mechanic at their center.
