Switch Games - Ranked by SONM

Post by OrangeRakoon » Wed May 17, 2017 8:08 pm

It's still early days for the Switch with not too many games released, so I thought this might be fun. For every Switch game that you have played (and consider played enough to give an opinion on), rate it in this thread. This post will be updated collating all the ratings and averaging them, giving us a list of Switch games from best to worst.

The rating system

Positive - 1.5 points
Middling - 1 point
Negative - 0.5 points

We're keeping it simple with only three possible ratings to give to each game. Where you draw the line between them is up to you, but the distinction between positive and negative at least is obvious. Middling is your best bet if you have mixed feelings about a game, or liked it but wouldn't go out your way to praise it or recommend it to others.

By scoring between 0.5 and 1.5 for each game it allows for some easy comparison to the number of people who have rated it along with an average score. If a game has a total score above the number of ratings it has received then the reception is positive, and below is negative.

The rankings are ordered by average score, rounded to a single decimal point, but in instances where the average score is tied those with more ratings will place higher. If everything is tied they are ranked alphabetically.

That's it - post your ratings and add more each time you play a new Switch game!

Rankings

Sure, sounds like a fun idea. Though I would've chosen a higher multiple just so we'll end up with nicer numbers, but that's just me.
  • 1 2 Switch -- 1.0
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild -- 1.5
  • Snipperclips -- 1.5
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe -- 1.5
Only game I've not had great fun with is 1 2 Switch, which is the weakest tie-in game Nintendo have done in a long time (possibly ever?).

And yes, I've avoided 1 2 Switch from hearing similar things said by lots of people

Nice idea OR! I've currently only got 3 games.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild -- 1.5
  • 1-2-Switch -- 1.0
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe -- 1.5
I generally enjoyed 1-2-Switch, but don't often have a second person to play it with. It's also only fun in short bursts.
Ever since joining the original ONM I've been a huge Nintendo fan (specifically Zelda) and am looking forward to some great discussions. I was previously known as Lego Master

Updated to here

I think the list ordered by total score might be interesting as a combination of reception + popularity. Also considering removing games from the rankings until they have at least 2 or 3 ratings?

When I watched the trailer on the Switch I thought if I had just watched that on my psvr I would be really ill right now, I have not been on it since October last year

If it's that bad I'll happily take it off your richard ;)

Rankings updated. Games with one rating only are still included but are greyed out.

Updated, 15 games ranked now!

I've not heard much about Wonder Boy, but visually it looks great. Disappointing to see a negative reaction to it :(

Not to count them, but what would they be out of interest?

I have played
Binding of Isaac Afterbirth which I thought was good but not enough to make me cough up the money, I have played Puyo Puyo Tetris and liked it but its cheaper on PS4 so if I was going to go for it Id go for that as I know the switch is portable but its not something I really want to take out of my house. I have played the Switch Lego city a little but I have it on the Wii U so wont be grabbing it as it just doesnt seem worth diving for it again.

I have to admit a lot of the games if there on multiple systems im going to go for them on the cheapest, mostly want to play things on my switch I cant get elsewere. I know I grabbed Mario Kart 8 but I mostly want to stay away from re-release stuff as well.

I'm now 17 hours in and 30% complete with Lego City Undercover, so I'm pretty confident in rating it. The Lego Star Wars games that started this style of Lego games were great games, and Undercover is even better - it's the best Lego game I've played. The GTA comparisons are obvious, but it also harkens back to my days spent playing Lego Island.

Lego City Undercover - 1.5

It just felt like a slogfest of stabbing enemy after enemy and there is barely any decent platforming involved. The levels feel a bit empty and it could also do with some checkpoints. But the art style and animation look great though.

Resurrecting this as we've had a few big releases since it was last updated - and sorry barriboy for the long delay in getting your scores in!

I've also added these ratings myself:

Splatoon 2 - 1.5
Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star - 1.0
Namco Museum - 1.5

I've slightly jigged how the list is decided too, by now only comparing rounded average scores. It makes for a more sensible list, rather than Fast RMX being at the top thanks to only having two positive votes. It's also now very simply colour coded - I might expand that into more of a gradient.

So, anyone got their scores to add? It'll be interesting to see how Arms and Splatoon 2 compare.
