Skyrim is one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time. Initially releasing on the bigger consoles and PC, Skyrim recently made it to Nintendo Switch. Skyrim gives complete freedom to players to be whatever they want to be. What this means is that you can either be a silent assassin, an emperor or queen, a magician, and a lot more. Skyrim puts you in a land that is infested with dragons and it is up to you whether you want to save the land or go your own way.

Unlike previous Super Mario games where everyone's favorite plumber was only limited to a being a plumber, in Super Mario Odyssey, Mario takes up multiple roles to fulfill his objectives. Joining Mario's epic adventure is his new friend Cappy. Cappy grants new moves to Mario such as cap throw, cap jump, and cap capture, making the adventure even more fun.

Bayonetta 2

Enter a world of hack 'n' slash action-packed adventure in Bayonetta 2. Previously a Wii U exclusive, the protagonist of Bayonetta 2 is a witch with some brutal combat moves and moments. The game looks stunning, but is locked to 720P resolution, which may look quite blurry when the game is played on a television. Nonetheless, the higher frame rates make the hacking and slashing action a lot more enjoyable.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Separating itself from other Metroidvania games, Hollow Knight presents itself in a world that is distinctively designed. The game is quite challenging and sometimes reminds us of those seemingly impossible bosses from Dark Souls. Nevertheless, Hollow Knight is one of the most beautiful action/adventure games one can play on the Switch.

Dark Souls: Remastered

There isn't much to say about Dark Souls. The game is a test of your patience, will, and perseverance to push on and overcome hard to beat bosses, only to stand face-to-face with another impossibly hard to beat boss. To come out victorious in a boss battle, players have to take a methodical approach to how they take on each encounter. But, the feeling one gets after beating one of those difficult bosses is truly unmatched. If your loved one loves to take on difficult challenges, hand them Dark Souls.

Pokémon Sword and Shield
