The release of the Nintendo Switch marked the beginning of a new generation for Nintendo. After Wii U's warm reception, many began to wonder if the company could survive on the console market today. However, it has rejected all expectations through the hybrid console / hand console. Along with Switch's launch, Zelda's Legend has been praised: "Breath of the Wild," giving him the killer application needed to quickly climb to the top of the console to dramatically increase Nintendo's revenue.
In the launch year, there was a lack of amazing games coming from huge first-party games such as Mario and Splatoon, to the dearest Indians like Owlboy and Celeste. There are also extraordinary games from third parties such as Octopath Traveler and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. The library seems to be expanding and improving with every consecutive launch.

These include games that have received a score of 8 or more on GameSpot since launching the console, as well as new game reviews and review updates to older games that have been ported to the Switch.
