The Nintendo Switch has been a shock success since it released in 2017. It's easy to forget now, but when the Switch was revealed it had many a doubter, your writer included. Well, thus far we've been proven very wrong, not least of all by Nintendo's versatility.

The Nintendo Switch is the antithesis of the Wii U in almost every way, but none more than in regards to the games. The Wii U was like a desert island - a place isolated from the rest of the world, and not even a pretty one. Third-party games were scarce, especially in the latter years, but the Nintendo Switch couldn't be more different.

Every single week there's a host of games released on the system and, not to sound like a hypocrite, but oftentimes there are far too many. Because there's such a litany of releases each week, a lot of great games just fall through the cracks. As such, it's incredibly easy to miss some of the very best games on the Switch.

Today, we want to spotlight some of those hidden gems: a handful of the best Nintendo Switch titles that you probably haven't played. Of course, all of these are "indie" games, so don't expect to find some mad ramblings about why you should play Arms. And they're cheap to boot; in fact, you could buy half a dozen or more of these for less than something like Splatoon 2. So start uncovering these hidden gems for next to nothing!
