Even if its third-party catalog still leaves much to be desired, the Switch is enjoying some of the strongest AAA outside support on a Nintendo system since the SNES days. Sure, many taxing, major third-party releases like Red Dead Redemption 2 are not making it over to the system, but a steady stream of last-gen ports and new releases are keeping many of us busy, and we have even enjoyed some exclusive third-party love like Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, which is the best-selling third-party game on Switch. What is your favorite AAA third-party Switch game?
I personally have to give the nod to Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package. As I said when I reviewed the game, I had spent ages hoping for a do-as-you-please crime sim to make it onto Switch, and romping through the chaos-ridden streets of Steelport ended up being just as fun on the go as it was on home consoles years earlier. Beyond Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package, I’ll also shout out Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, one of the only kart racers around that gives Mario Kart 8 Deluxe a run for its money.
