Hollow knight has a frekin 98
Quest Mode (1 month ago)
Yeah. It wasn't out when I made this video, but if I ever update this list, it'll be at or near the top. Thanks for watching!
Nathaniel Jones (2 months ago)
are you a meme
wannabalpinist (2 months ago)
Wow. No Hollow knight!?
Quest Mode (1 month ago)
It would have been on the list, but Hollow Knight hadn't been released on Switch at the time I posted this video.
Paul Branwhite (2 months ago)
Celeste is surely worthy of number 1 spot. Along with that for me is Thumper, Fast RMX, Rive, Nine Parchments, Guns Gore and Canolli, infact their is quite a few.
Conner Roth (2 months ago)
3 interesting ones. Enter the gungeuion, rocket league, and shovel Knight

What about hollow knight? :<
Mr. Hater (1 month ago)
+Quest Mode i wonder who's on top then 🤔 Edit: also what about undertale?
Quest Mode (1 month ago)
Hollow Knight wasn't out for Switch when I posted this video. If I ever do an update, it'll be near the top of the list!

Metacritic is a FRAUD, a very big LIE.

For a man who only has 1.4k subscribers, you are very professional with your presentation. I expect you to grow as a channel if you keep at it. Who knows, maybe you'll get lucky and IGN rips off one of your vids, haha!

enter the gungeon isn't as in depth as everyone makes it seem
Stuart Dalrymple (3 months ago)
Enter the Gungeon looks friggin amazing. I need a Switch!
The Ultimate Gaming Hero (4 months ago)
Too bad Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack isn't on here.... Or aby game from Inti Creates they're my favorite Indie Developer
Ry Ž (4 months ago)
I have 160 hours into Stardew on PC, it will be the first game I buy (along with BotW) when I get a Switch. Truly an amazing, relaxing game
Isaac Reyes (4 months ago)
Whats the game on the thumbnail
Quest Mode (4 months ago)
That's Enter the Gungeon.
mitchilin (4 months ago)
awful music man. please
Quest Mode (4 months ago)
Thanks for the feedback! I happen to like it, but it's good to hear what people don't like.
Super Duperest (5 months ago)
Bring Outland to switch!! What a gem!
An MLG Person (3 months ago)
Yeah Celeste is definetly one of the best 2d platformer game so happy I bought it.
An MLG Person (4 months ago)
That's fine if you thought the game was alright we all have different opinions after all. I've also seen Outland and it’s pretty decent and innovative.
Super Duperest (5 months ago)
Vegeta The Savage Meh, it's ALRIGHT, played it, beat it... Didn't find it as innovative or fun as they say. Started getting bored halfway through. We need a sequel to Outland. Now that game was the very definition of innovative.
Caleb McCoy (5 months ago)
How is it possible to fuck up "Celeste" more than you did there
Angel Sierra (5 months ago)
i have already rocket league and starew valley on pc but aggh i would like to try them on the switch
elijah rowlett (5 months ago)
I might sound like a broken record, but this channel deserves way more subs
AnimeAddictsAnonymous 05 (4 months ago)
Continue saying that as much as possible it meeds tp be known. I just recently got into Indies, but outside of channels like Snoman Gaming and Switch Up, I couldn’t find many good indies. So finding a channel like this has helped a lot.
Quest Mode (5 months ago)
Thank you for saying so! I hope to get a lot more, but in the meantime, I'll keep posting new content so stay tuned!

10:19 number one game is what ?😅😅😂
Benadryl Thundercrotch (5 months ago)
I'll never understand how nicalis has the balls to charge so much for cave story, when it's not only 14 years old but also still completely free on pc (not steam)
Wavy Vaporizers (5 months ago)
I want celeste but I'm holding out until that physical copy appears
Wizoop (6 months ago)
That moment everyone is talking about Celeste and I've never played it before
Wizoop (6 months ago)
I love the character design and humour in enter the gungeon it fits perfectly the main enemy names are gundead🤦‍♂️
Wizoop (6 months ago)
AHH enter the gungeon great game I recommend you play it👍🏼
Nepu-Tech USA (6 months ago)
I don't care what anyone says, Steam World Dig 2 is the best Indy game on Switch I actually had more fun with it than with Mario Odyssey. After watching the video I'm glad is no3. but it's still no1 in my heart :D
Quest Mode (5 months ago)
I actually agree with you. I had more fun with SteamWorld Dig than just about any other game on Switch. For me, it's a toss up between Steamworld Dig and Celeste.
Saturn Productions (6 months ago)
Also in Rocket League there is Batman DLC where u can use the Tumbler which is cool and good
Saturn Productions (6 months ago)
Shovel Knight is great, and I'm hyped for stick fight switch too
Daniel Guillaumes (6 months ago)
No Isaac, dislike
Quest Mode (6 months ago)
Don't blame me. Blame Metecritic!
Nik Naython (6 months ago)
I actually really don't like Cave Story that much, I was disappointing by it. Also, I would totally get Steam world Dig 2, but the artstyle ruins it for me.
Quest Mode (6 months ago)
That's too bad. Steamworld Dig 2 is so good!
Ricardo Carreon (6 months ago)
Honorable mentions: Golf Story, IMPLOSION, Crypt of the Necrodancer, The Escapists 2.
Quest Mode (6 months ago)
I've been curious to try out Crypt of the Necrodancer!
Game Queen (6 months ago)
Haven't played Celeste yet. Ill wait till its cheaper. Looks like another Super Meat boy type indie platformer. Small avatar, wall bouncing, tight controlled platformer... I can wait.
Kirbonic Pikmin (30 days ago)
Bridget Cru not sure if itll drop beneath the already incredibly low price of 20... Not to mention its a lot more than just tight platforming
The Epic Mattinator (4 months ago)
You should get it! It's really good! But be warned that the c-sides are EVIL
pk sonic (7 months ago)
Bro your such a good utuber how u have less then 500 subs only! Ur awesome keep up the good work!
Quest Mode (6 months ago)
I guess I've got to start somewhere. Thanks for watching!
Fernando 04 (7 months ago)
In my opinion shovel knight ia the best
Trestres 23 (1 month ago)
+Fernando 04 Nah, he's right. You're a bitch. Accept it
Fernando 04 (4 months ago)
Marreta for me is easy but if you play it for the first time is dificult
Marreta (4 months ago)
I want to buy Shovel Knight on switch to play on the go, but I fear the controls and small screen of the mobile setup would make the game harder than it already is.
Fernando 04 (6 months ago)
Is only my opinion , ok?
Fernando 04 fuck you enter the gungeon is best bitch
Jeffrey Niemann (7 months ago)
I'd have Golf Story on this list.
James Keith Tampus (7 months ago)
where is guacamele?
Quest Mode (6 months ago)
Unfortunately, Guacamelee is not on Switch yet. Hopefully the sequel will be.
Game Queen (7 months ago)
Furi should be a must have on Switch also. It's not gonna be on a list based on metacritic tho cause it's so hard lol. Great soundtrack, awesome action, bosses are varied, and it's stylish as hell. Thumper is another great game too.
Alexandre Chevrier (5 months ago)
Great soundtrack is an understatement. It's absolutely beautiful: check out A Picture In Motion, Make This Right, My Only Chance, A Monster... It's difficult, sure, but I feel like the music really helps you to be at your absolute best to overcome the challenge. It's also quite different from most games, as a boss rush/bullet hell arena type... The story is a bit mysterious and not very explicit, but it's solid. I first got it on PC for around 5€, loved it, and bought it again on the switch a couple months later at full price (well, it's only 20€ and it includes a small DLC). In this game, you really get much better: I don't remember exactly how long it took me to first beat it on PC, but it must've been something like 15 hours for the normal mode. Then I came back to it on switch, completed normal in 2-3 hours, and took on the real challenge that is hard mode; that was another 20 hours or so. It looks almost as good as the PC/PS4 versions (but it's not about how advanced the graphics are anyway, it's aesthetic as fuck) and runs almost perfectly, I only had a few frame drops during the most intense moments where bullets rain from everywhere. Well, that's when you need the most stable framerate, but it never caused me to lose unfairly, it's not a significant problem at all. It might even have been patched since then. Overall, I'd recommend it to absolutely everyone, even if you don't like challenging games. Normal mode can be tackled by everyone who enjoys the game, even if they're not very skilled; as I said, you constantly improve.
Inside Out NYHC (6 months ago)
Furi is incredible! A must have for the system!
Quest Mode (6 months ago)
I've heard good things, but haven't checked it out yet. I will soon!
Inside Out NYHC (7 months ago)
Great to the point breakdown of some really great games.
Quest Mode (6 months ago)
Programmatic (7 months ago)
"Clelste" is my favorite platformer.
Celeste is better than Odyssey imo. That's saying something
Quest Mode well not anymore you gave my comment a heart
Quest Mode (6 months ago)
I actually agree wholeheartedly.
Raub Nation (7 months ago)
Well done video. I've been wanting to play "Night in the woods" for awhile now, think I'll pick it up this weekend.
Raub Nation (7 months ago)
Quest Mode no prob. Take a sub fam
Quest Mode (7 months ago)
Yeah, Night in the Woods is great for adventure fans. Very surprising story, but barely any puzzles. That said I know some people like it for the lack of puzzles. Thanks for watching!
Kyle Conley (7 months ago)
Great commentary on the games. More than I see on most videos like this.
The Fiddler (7 months ago)
Wow. Enter the gungeon is on the bottom list? i just bought it 15min. ago. i should have bought steam world dig 2 since i already celeste.
Quest Mode (7 months ago)
Enter the Gungeon is still a fantastic game, but yes, you should definitely buy Steamworld Dig 2. It's one of the best games I played in 2017.
Connor Q (7 months ago)
Celeste is my second favorite game behind BOTW
Nepu-Tech USA (6 months ago)
Try Steam World Dig 2 I liked it more than Mario Odyssey
Seín2000 (7 months ago)
I'm interested in: Enter the dungeon,Axiom Verge,night in the woods,Stardew Valley,steamworld 2 Wait... I don't like indies what's happening to me!!! Why I'm so interested!?!? I always watch indie by far should I buy and play my first Indie? Should I give them a chance!?
Quest Mode (6 months ago)
Give them a chance! I think the best one to start with would be Steamworld Dig 2. Such a good game!
Deric Gregory (7 months ago)
I've put 120 hours into Stardew Valley with no end in sight. I highly recommend it. It's almost like SNES Zelda combined with Harvest Moon.
2Spooky4Tim (7 months ago)
I knew Celeste would be on here.
Simple Buddy (7 months ago)

what would you recommend celeste, super meat boy or shovel knight?
Quest Mode (5 months ago)
I totally agree! I'm so glad to see other people enjoying it so much.
Orpheus (7 months ago)
Shovel Knight is on sale on the European e-shop.
BradShreds (7 months ago)
Celeste is so good that I may pick it up for the switch just for the portability. I’ve already played it on steam and it’s one of those instant timeless classics.
TheLegendaryJF (7 months ago)
Shovel Knight, not the other two.
Quest Mode (8 months ago)
Shovel knight took me a little while to get into, but once I did it quickly became one of my favorite platforming games. I highly recommend it.

Long live Playstation Vita! I love that Steamworld Dig 2 came out on Vita, and I hope you love Celeste as much as I did. Such a great game!
Hylian OnSwitch (8 months ago)
I’m currently playing SteamWorld Heist on Switch & PS4 and since the PS4 version also comes with the vita version I’m also playing in on the vita haha I’m gonna start Celeste soon :D

Thank you!
It's okay. Oh and your video is pretty well made! I can see it took somewhat a while. Keep up the good work!
Quest Mode (8 months ago)
Thanks for pointing this out. Thankfully, the Switch port of Night in the Woods is faithful to the PS4, PC and Xbox versions of the game.

Thanks for watching!
Bob Frendt (8 months ago)
This is making me think I need to get a switch. Look what you're doing to me!
LoL ReplayBaby (3 months ago)
Bob Frendt you can play all of this games on steam so paying 300$ for console isnt worth it. Consider that you most likely find those game cheaper on steam...
Quest Mode (8 months ago)
The Switch is awesome! Especially if you travel, or have any moments when you could play a portable system.
Souper Gaming (8 months ago)
Great list and input! I personally would rank shovel knight higher, but I like how you went off the metacritic score! 😁
Quest Mode (8 months ago)
Thanks! I'm going to see how this video performs. If it does well, I might make more lists based on Meteoritic ratings.
sunny (9 months ago)
awesome list .
Quest Mode (8 months ago)
Thanks for watching! There's more to come for sure.
