Video games have certainly come a long way since the days of Pong. No longer confined to a single platform, gamers now have entire worlds to explore. For many people, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the reason they purchased a Nintendo Switch in the first place. Not only do you get to see Link, Zelda, and Ganon on a next-generation console, but the vast world of Hyrule already feels familiar, and there are so many places to explore and learn more about the mythos of this franchise. There are plenty of great open-world Switch games, but these are widely considered the best of the bunch.
Most open-world games encourage you to explore and reward you for venturing out of the plot to see what the developers have to offer. Sure, you may be able to complete the main story in 30-40 hours, but you could potentially play and live in these worlds infinitely.
So is Breath of the Wild better than The Witcher 3? What about Skyrim? And does Xenoblade Chronicles 2 also deserve a top spot? Vote up all your favorite open-world Switch games that make you want to explore every inch to see what you can find.
