Earning five stars and our recommended award in our updated Nintendo Switch review, we praised this console for its fun, versatility and sheer inventiveness. The Switch functions excellently as both a home console as well as a handheld portable, simply needing to be lifted out of its dock for on-the-go play. It’s also ready for co-op fresh out the box, with its innovative joy-con controllers being usable individually as well as in concert.

Also helping the Switch stand out is its excellent library of both exclusive and ported games, which includes the likes of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Bayonetta 3, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild, Splatoon 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection, Metroid Dread, Pokémon Sword and Shield, and many, many more.

One of the best among them, of course, is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a high-octane racing game that is fun for both casuals and hardened gamers alike. Featuring 32 tracks both new and old, this game can tickle the SNES gamer’s nostalgia at one turn, while offering something bold and next-gen at the next. Regularly updated with DLC and boasting a competitive online scene, there’s no real limit to how much fun you can wring out of this title.
