Overall Take

An open world addition to the historic franchise, this is a sprawling game allowing immense freedom in the path the chosen knight takes on his way to save the kingdom (and the titular princess, of course). As an offline game for the Wii U console, the player can choose if they will explore every nook and cranny of the world, crafting potions and food, collecting armor and weapons until they are as powerful as possible, or to charge straight into the castle waving a stick to confront the ancient evil.


In our analysis, the Nintendo Nintendo The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild placed 3rd when we looked at the top 10 products in the category. For the full ranking, see below.

An Overview On Nintendo Switch Games (For All Ages)

When buying a Nintendo Switch video game, there are a few things to take into consideration. First and foremost, be aware of what gaming system you are buying for.

Several different systems have similar-sounding names, such as the Nintendo DS as opposed to the DS Lite or the 3DS, or the Nintendo Wii as opposed to the Nintendo Wii U. They’re similar sounding names, but the games designed for one system are not playable on the others.

Another important consideration is the desired play style. Some gamers enjoy playing competitively against other humans in real time, while others prefer to pit themselves against the computer AI.

Alternately, there are gamers who prefer to play in a non-confrontational way, exploring and creating or cooperating to achieve a common goal. Some people simply love solving puzzles. There are as many play styles as there are personalities.

The Nintendo Switch Game (For All Ages) Buying Guide

  • Set a budget when shopping for games. Many games have extra features, add-ons, posters, figurines, comics, game guides and more. These are tempting and confusing if you don’t have a clear goal in mind. While extras are nice, they are not inherently necessary and can add up quickly
  • Be aware of which games require an internet connection, and which ones do not.
  • The Nintendo Switch Online Membership is a separate, monthly subscription not included in the purchase of any game. Having an internet connection is not enough. Buying a fun new game only to discover that you cannot afford the monthly online membership can be disappointing.
  • Consider what will make the game experience most fulfilling for the person who will be playing. You know your own preferences and needs better than anyone, but if you are purchasing a game as a gift, be aware of the recipient’s play style. Buying a real-time racing game for someone who doesn’t enjoy competition or being ranked may not be received well, and getting a free-form creative game for someone who enjoys high-intensity action may also fall flat.
