When the Nintendo Switch was launched earlier in the year, it was suggested that the console did not offer enough games. This is far from the truth since we are reaching the end of 2017.

Stardew Valley is a game that will slip on you and never let go. The game is a breeding simulator (which may not seem immediately convincing) but it has been a huge hit on other platforms.

3. Thumper ($ 20)
Thumper is like few other games you have played before. At its heart, it's a rhythm game but with a significant difference.

His great sense of humor adds to the experience.
6. Snake Pass ($ 20)
One of the first games to reach the eShop, Snake Pass continues to be a title worthy of interest. It's a bit of a platform game, except you're a snake, so you can not jump.
Instead, the action is focused on exploring and mastering how to move like a snake. A form of "jump" is implemented by lifting the head of your snake. It takes a little while to get used to it, but it's a stylish way to give you the impression of mimicking the movements of a snake. Cute and full of collectibles, it's a pretty big game with some interesting puzzles that will require you to think outside the box. It's rather special.

2017 has really been the year of the Rocket League. Having won countless awards and honors, it is a must on any platform.

8. Oceanhorn – Uncharted Sea Monster ($ 15)
Originally the answer from Zelda, Oceanhorn – Monster from Uncharted Seas made its way to the Nintendo Switch. Embracing a more traditional look for the genre, it's a 3D action RPG that has a young boy trying to find his missing father. Mystery and intrigue are key elements of the game, with many puzzles and satisfying battles against different monsters.

9. Worms W.M.D ($ 30)
This is the most expensive offer here, but if you loved Worms games in the past, you will greatly appreciate this latest offer for the Switch. A strategy game, your team of worms take turns using unusual weapons to annihilate your opponents. It's deliciously offbeat and preserves the silly atmosphere of the franchise's early games. Worms W.M.D offers a decent campaign as well as crafting options, but his greatest strengths lie in his nostalgic moments and his multiplayer.
Beside the additions of buildings and vehicles, the favorite weapons of familiar fans such as Holy Hand grenade and Ninja Rope are a welcome return. It's a sometimes frantic but always fun experience.
