Now’s the time to be stuck on your Nintendo Switch, especially with its graphically intensive titles like “Super Mario 3D World” and “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt”. Last month, Nintendo also announced an array of new titles set to be unveiled in 2021, including Mario Golf Super Rush and Monster Hunter Rise. However, after you put down those controllers, make sure you remember to clean them! According to a recent study, gaming consoles have more germs than the average toy or other household items. Next time you use your game console, remember to prioritize cleaning both your gaming console and controllers.
Here are Nintendo Switch games that are a must-play in 2021.

Breath of the Wild is widely known as the best Nintendo Switch game in 2021 and among the best video games in history. The game gives a new direction to the Legend of Zelda series, incorporating the franchise’s trends and other open-world fantasies. It’s also hard to resist its crafty puzzles, a continent packed with live-in towns and monsters to fight.
- Super Mario Odyssey
Whether you grew to play the 80s arcade games or 3D video games, Mario played a huge role in defining what a video game should look like. The Super Mario Odyssey continues keeping this classic game alive, pushing the series further with new powers to ensure the game remains fresh and exciting to play.
