List Rules List contains both current and upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusives.

Nintendo hardcores know that there's one reason you buy Nintendo consoles - the exclusive titles. For all those doubting the newest system, here are all the upcoming and current best Nintendo Switch exclusives, ranked by anticipation and quality. So far, the heavy hitter Switch exclusives are The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, all of which are ranked on the most popular Nintendo Switch games right now.

Some fans are depressed that more exclusives for Switch haven't been announced, asking where franchises like Metroid, F-Zero, and Donkey Kong Country are. However, with Zelda receiving a near perfect score from most gaming outlets, it's probably better than Nintendo is promoting quality over quantity for their newest console.

Rank this list of all Nintendo Switch exclusives by voting up the best games, and also the upcoming Switch exclusives that you are dying to play.
