What's better than playing your favorite game? Being able to play your favorite game anywhere you go! The best ports for Switch offer gamers a way to experience awesome titles without having to switch consoles. Nintendo already had a million-dollar idea with creating a portable home console, and they're even more genius in porting what are already the best games on the market so that players can keep the fun going, whether they're traveling, commuting, or just lounging around in bed.

In the market for some awesome Switch ports? Maybe you're just curious to see which ports are the best. Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (finally) made its way over to the Switch in 2019, and Alien: Isolation is a blast to play with the Joy-Con controller.

If you're looking for some great games to play on the go, look no further than our list of the best ports for the Nintendo Switch. Make sure to vote up your favorites and add any top Switch ports we may have missed.
