Top 5 Indie Games, Best Of Indies (Nintendo Switch), You Should Not Miss These 5 Indiegames!!
What a year for the switch! On March 3, Nintendo’s hybrid console celebrated its first birthday, and even the most loyal fans would not have dreamed such a success. With “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” and “Super Mario Odyssey,” the Switch had two of the best games ever in its first year, and hardly a month passed without an exclusive, high-end blockbuster.
But almost as important to the success of the Wii-U successor is the amount and quality of indie titles that appeared out of nowhere on the Switch. Partly exclusive titles, partly implementations from other platforms, but all with the advantage of being able to play the games on the go! The indie games are definitely an important component of the Switch’s success story, and we’ve picked out the top 5 for you. The fact that grandiose indies like “Axiom Verge”, “Owlboy” or “SteamWorld Dig 2” did not make it to the top 5 shows that both mass and class are present on the switch. What are your favorite indie games for the Nintendo Switch? Let us know in the comments.
5TH PLACE: ROCKET LEAGUE
Category: Football Frenzy
“Rocket League” is probably one of the biggest indie hits of recent years, and could get on a variety of platforms a huge fan base. So too on the switch. The ludicrous football-meets-cars mix is a terrific party game and absolutely chaotic, which is just as intentional. Although the entry is found quickly, but to really master the game, you have to really hang out.
Rocket League is addictive from the start. Different modes, such as the 1-on-1 duel or the most popular 3-on-3 mode or basketball, as well as local and online multiplayer and of course the ability to compete alone against the computer as well as various training units to provide almost endless fun. Although graphically some cuts were made to the switch, but that was necessary so that the game is always running smoothly, and it does.
You need to bring peace resistance and tolerance for the very idiosyncratic control, because in the beginning the competition literally flies around your ears, while you often seem a little helpless. But those who like to get into a game and its mechanics, get a rivalry for excellence with “Rocket League”.
