If there’s a new Zelda game: “Aw, freak yeah! Wahoo!” If there’s a new Mario game: “Wow. Another remake.”

Nintendo switch is BULLSHIT it hasn’t got PS4 style games!

This is just me, but just exactly HOW did 1-2 Switch get onto this list? Yeah okay, it may have sold a lot of copies, but if what I've been hearing is anything to go by, it's only a demo of sorts. And even though I'm glad Super Mario Odyssey got #1 (I mean come on, who doesn't like Mario), to be fair and given its popularity, Zelda should have got it. Even though Zelda isn't my cup of tea and isn't for me. Again, that's just me though and my opinion, which is why I'm glad Super Mario got it. I haven't bought a Switch yet (will be soon), but when I do, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Tennis Aces and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, will be going into my collection. Most likely not all at once, but gradually. Super Mario Odyssey and/or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe though most likely straight up.

Zelda would prob go above Mario kart if the wii u units were counted
Jack Son (2 months ago)
One, some of these are 2nd party games, and two, third party companies historically do NOT sell well on Nintendo systems. Even Wii and DS had trouble selling mainstream games that Sony and Microsoft had.

To be honest I think Splatoon 2 should be in 1-3 place because it have a very good story line of it.Plus the dlc of it is worth the pay of it!Aleast I’m glad it got in the list

MegaLaplace (3 months ago)
Of course I’m one of the owners of all the top 3 games. Of course I would be. But let’s not lie, BoTW > oddessy (how do you even spell that off memory properly)

Xenoblade 2, BotW, Mario, Mario Kart and Kirby.
Adrian Powell (3 months ago)
You can't really compare super mario odyssey and zelda breath of the wild. Both Completely different games. Both amazing. Also donkey Kong tropical freeze is ridiculously hard haha
Eddy War (3 months ago)
I completely agree that Zelda should be on the top. More people did play Zelda than there were sold, my friend plays on my switch
Tom K9H (3 months ago)
BOTW deserves first spot I completely agree with you. However, the Mario franchise is more appealing to casual gamers so....
Max V (3 months ago)
Mario appeals to a bit wider audience in general. You hardly have to be a gamer to enjoy Mario while Zelda is a bit more built with the core gamers in mind. I think both are great!
Ibrahim Sharrocks (3 months ago)
Damn those Mario Odyssey sales suprised me, I even own the game but didnt expect it to get 11 million sales and beat BOTW, especially since Zelda has had about 7 months extra
Hanaa Hanaa (3 months ago)
Just bcuz they r 10 without labo
Suomiya Bao (3 months ago)
Most of the games are sold a lot of copies, but people also sell them immediately after buying. So, this list is not about the best games.
Gone Chaos (3 months ago)
Watch when super smash comes out and it becomes first on the list!
strk (3 months ago)
so rabbits kingdom battle did kinda poorly maybe?
TekSone (3 months ago)
I own all of them except for 1-2 Switch & Labo.

What sort of backwoods savage buys a Switch and NOT Zelda OR Mario? Those should have 100% attachment rates.

Zelda is the series that gets better reviews, Mario is the series that gets more money. That's a good balance.
DatLegoMann (3 months ago)
Don't kill me but... Super Mario Odyssey is NOT 10/10, especially at launch. Hear me out: It was a broken mess of bugs. Most of the game was stupidly easy, but Dark Side and Darker Side use cheap level design and life-starving. You can pay to get past these unfair levels with Amiibo. The whole game can easily be beaten in under three hours. And some of the best moves are locked behind motion controls.
Jordan (3 months ago)
The reason Kirby and 1-2 switch sell so well is kids, which is gonna be the majority of those sales. Zelda however will not appeal to all children, which mario kart and mario odyssey do
Jack Smetana (3 months ago)
Why are you so happy about games selling. Shouldn’t you just play the games and enjoy them instead of caring about how much money Nintendo makes
Fletcher Ng (3 months ago)
melon scope its because it means more games can be made, and you can see how many people enjoy the games they make
DragonFireFeast (3 months ago)
Botw or mario kart probably would've been first if wii u sales were counted too
Cowntsikin (3 months ago)
Remember, BotW also got released on Wii U (that's where I played it for more than 350 hours) and it has sold more than 1M units already last year on that console. So probably, with the Wii U figures added, maybe it sold more than Super Mario Odyssey already.
James Cornwell (3 months ago)
odyssey is a brand new game only playable on switch, it appeals to me and my 5 year old, why are you butthurt over zelda, it’s a great game, the attach rate of the big 3 and soon to be smash is like 50% that is insane, even splatoon 2 is high. i just want a proper mario maker follow up. kart smash and maker are the important ports. my guess they are holding it for next fall.

You say if you haven't played Tropical Freeze, what are you doing with your life? Well, I am waiting until a major price drop. Definitely getting it, Alex. For now, I have other amazing Switch games to play.

Mr. Dream (3 months ago)
I'm happy ARMS did very well. Right at the 2 million units sold. I really do hope Nintendo decides to go back to ARMS and give it some more updates soon right after they give Mario Kart 8 Deluxe some more updates as well.

smash ultimate: 13,4 million sold units

Why can't Nintendo fanboys understand this, Nintendo games are Nintendo systems highest sellers!
Mike Norris (3 months ago)
Why can’t Nintendo just make wii sports for switch
DEAD WOOPER (3 months ago)
I know that Mario Rabbids is over 2 million sold so that’s another really good one

I hope they make a Mario party on the switch I've only played it on the DS the Mario party ds
ShyGuy (3 months ago)
I own the top 3 games and I am going to buy tropical freeze at some point. Aside from minecraft mario kart and Zelda are my most played games out of about 10-15 games
Steel Wing (3 months ago)
Am I the only one who thinks Odyssey deserves number 1 lol. Zelda should still be a close second but...

Hey guys I made up a tip and trick for the jump rope 2.0: when you feel like/know that you will fail, throw your cap to keep you in midair a bit and increases your chances of getting 100 jumps (note:do not throw your cap at the screen as it makes the game harder. Only do it once you get the power moon and want a more challenging experience! Man, this was long XD) Also my channel is coming very soon! I just need to make a draft the start shopping for my new equipment. Man, this is very long XD
CherryEnperry (3 months ago)
I have all of these games except for Aces, because a friend told me it wasn’t worth it
Pitman856 (3 months ago)
I imagine some indies would be top 5 or 3 easily. Sucks that this list is only first party because none of this is really surprising at all

Jabberjay Mellark (3 months ago)
I reckon that 1 2 switch has a high selling unit but a just as high return unit as many regret buying it. Also everyone knew what the top four would be.
Erik Quinn (3 months ago)
Breath of the wild is better and mario is stupid in my oppinion
Pedro Pinheiro (3 months ago)
I'm so happy for xenoblade!
skySPYRO (3 months ago)
SAME imo Zelda #1
Drewsefer89 (3 months ago)
If you include the WiiU sales for BOTW then it takes the #1 spot. After all, BOTW is a WiiU game that’s ported to the Switch.

Arms didn't flop

i have mario tennis, splatoon 2 mario karr 8 deluxs and zelda but only on wii u
Arttu Norrman (3 months ago)
I dont own Zelda BOW. It is still 60€ even if it is used... And if Smash bros ultimate comes before christmas it will be top 3 most sold games on switch soon after its release
Arttu Norrman (3 months ago)
Bugsy the Meme Master Well i am not so much of an Zelda fan. And i love smash bros

It is probably better than Smash. Please get it, it’s a masterpiece

Mario always outsells Zelda. No surprise there.

Gah i want to play splatoon 2 but i feel like it’ll die, being a multiplayer game. And i don’t like purchasing multiplayer games anymore

7:51 Mario fans:What did you SAY!?!??!!
Erik Perez (3 months ago)
I dont care what anyone say the switch is proof that a system doesn't have to be a powerhouse of graphics to be sucessful a great lineup of unique and fun games games is extremely important dont get me wrong i do like the ps4 but i often find myself bored of gritty story driven games i love variety and thats something the switch excells in at least in my eyes

William Hopkins (3 months ago)
I own all of them...
Jere1570 (3 months ago)
How did Mario Rabbids stack up? I understand it's not a "1st Party" title since it's Ubi but I'm curious to know where it would have slotted in here. It was one of my biggest surprises on the switch to date!
Sebastian Bernal (3 months ago)
The only reason I ordered a switch was because of breath of the wild, I really missed the times where I would wake up before my parents did on weekends to play Ocarina.
Lorfarius (3 months ago)
Thank god his pants stayed on.
Beni Woods (3 months ago)
Own half of them, 1 2 switch doesn't appeal to me; tennis and sports in general lack replayability in my opinion; arms seems kind of fun, might check it out when it is on sale; kirby might be too childish for me; lastly from what I heard, it's only gonna be fun after 20 hours of gameplay as of Xenoblade, no thank you...

Breath of the Wild is my switch game of choice. Put in 600 + hours.
Andy1119 (3 months ago)
Really wasn't into Xenoblade chronicles 2.
Odyssey is probably the worst 3D mario game, maybe even just straight up *Mario* game, I have ever played but I am glad most people had fun with it.
B-Rex (3 months ago)
Dude, there have been 20 million Switches sold in total. That means almost half of all Switch users own Breath of the Wild. How is that AT ALL disappointing.
Jack Son (3 months ago)
because in March it had a nearly 100% attach rate worldwide (helped by the fact that in America 3 different versions of the game released, giving it a 100+% attach rate due to collectors/scalpers buying it to collect/resell).
Jem Taylor (3 months ago)
am i the only one watching this that doesn't own a switch

I would say it’s better, but xenoblade has less sales and I’m trying to make a point

I love the fact that 1 million is considered a success where as some games 10 million is a failure. Some Developers waste too much money these days
Jack Son (3 months ago)
wait, that can't be right, because 100 million games over 14 million systems is considered a failure (that what fanboys keep saying about Wii U's 14 million rounded, and 100+ million games)...
mathiasmorqubus (3 months ago)
I don’t have one, two Switch, do I have Kirby.
Semedian (3 months ago)
Does anybody wanna friend me on switch? and play somtime?
Tanooki 64 (3 months ago)
I think that Super Mario Odyssey is the better game, but I am a bit biased as it is Mario and I don’t want to argue with the Zelda community either so, don’t attack me on the replies please.
Jack Son (3 months ago)
It was the bigger system seller, that's why there was an Odyssey bundle last December.

I do like some quality ARMS soundtrack
