With the release of the Switch OLED and numerous new games for the console, it’s about time you increase your levels of fun with some quality games.

So, if you own a Switch and don’t know what to play, we’ve got the list for you! Here are some games you could play on your Nintendo Switch for a fun day indoors. You might want to get some Nintendo eShop Cards from OffGamers here to cover these games though!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild​

The latest instalment in the Zelda franchise, Breath of the Wild was one of the most anticipated games to be released on the Switch. If you have yet to get your hands on this title, what are you waiting for? You’ll get to experience the world of Hyrule in an open world setting this time, compared to its predecessors.

The premise is similar to previous games - Hyrule is in trouble and you have to save it again. But as it is now an open-world experience, everything changes. There are now destructible environments, all sorts of puzzles to interact with and quests to complete.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons​

A cosy game with a beautiful community surrounding it, Animal Crossing is a great game for those looking to take a break from reality and unplug. It was considered one of the best chill games to play during the pandemic and sold out like hotcakes.

Now that the hype has somewhat subsided, the game is home to a budding and welcoming community. You can find yourself getting drawn into making connections with the various characters that grace your island and have fun decorating the place while carrying out some fun daily activities.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus​

The latest release in the Pokemon universe, Arceus has made a huge impact in the industry as it introduces a completely open world Pokemon experience, the first of its kind in the Pokemon franchise. The game brings a ton of changes and new Pokemon for those who are familiar with the game.

In this world, you are taken back into the past when humans still live in fear of Pokemon. Arceus focuses more on world exploration and understanding each Pokemon, but that doesn’t mean the battles are gone. A revamped battle mechanic is included to make your experience more exciting and immersive.

Bravely Default 2​

A classic JRPG that’s here as a reminder to newer counterparts that the traditional JRPG can be a great game to experience even with all the new contenders and twists to the genre. Bravely Default 2 gets its name from the two actions you are allowed to choose during battle - Brave or Default. Brave allows you to perform multiple actions and Default allows you to save for a later round.

The game itself is visually breathtaking and will leave you wanting to discover more about the world you’ve landed yourself in, as well as the characters on the journey with you. This JRPG encourages you to strategise your battles well in order to survive its battles and defeat evil.

Luigi’s Mansion 3​

If you’re tired of the titular Mario, perhaps you’d enjoy controlling his brother Luigi instead. In another instalment of Luigi’s Mansion, you’ll be exploring a haunted mansion-like hotel as you get split up from your friends - Mario and the gang. You’ll be sucking up ghosts and slamming them back to death, as well as shooting out plungers in order to change scenery.

Luigi will also be accompanied by Gooigi, his green doppelganger that could further aid him in solving puzzles and dealing with enemies. Gooigi provides a co-op spot for players, so you can play this game with someone by your side.


This game is a wonder on every platform it finds itself in, and that’s saying a lot. Hades wasn't named ‘Game of The Year’ for no good reason! It’s one of the most engrossing and interesting games out there that’s definitely worth your money. This is a roguelike dungeon crawler that will set you reeling into oblivion with frustration and glee.

In case you’re new to gaming, let’s give you a short rundown of what Hades entails - you’ll be playing as Zagreus as he fights through waves of enemies to get out of hell. There will also be boss battles with your very own family members and you are guaranteed to die. Mainly because you need to die to progress further in the story.

There you go, folks! Some of the best Nintendo Switch games for you to discover once more this 2022! Do let us know what other games you’re looking to play this year! With the upcoming release of Kirby’s Forgotten Lands, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and potentially Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, this year looks like it's going to be one heck of a year for Switch fans.
