    The thread you've been waiting for is here! Nintendo may have had a successful year with the Nintendo 3DS, but the true star of the show in 2017 was the newly released Nintendo Switch. From revolutionary takes on old classics, to brand new IPs, Nintendo has had many critically acclaimed games in 2017, and now its time for you to pick your favorite to win game of the year!

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    Odyssey for me. Zelda was mediocre imo. No idea why people are creaming their pants over it. It was far from what people have been making it out to be. I want it to go back to linear. Miss the actual difficulty progression and such. Open world was neat once. But please no more open world "any dungeon" bs thanks

    BOTW is the GOTY for WiiU imo. Mario Odyssey is for Switch.

    Zelda deserves to win. Mario 2nd.
    Xenoblade is my personel favourit.
    The list is a little bit odd. Many medicore games like Bomberman, Has been heroes, snake pass and 1-2-switch, but there are many great games missing like e.g. Steamworld Dig 2. Also there is Sonic forces instead of sonic Mania.

    You're right, if the choice was between BotW, Just Dance 2018, and Generic Indie #3134, then BotW takes the cake.

    PS: IMHO SMO should win, but due to infinite bias my vote goes to Xenoblade 2.

    For as heavily flawed as BotW was, I'd still call it the Switch's game of the year. They screwed up a lot of the aspects of basic combat and any semblance of balancing in the game, but I did very much enjoy the layout of the world they built, as well as the mechanics they gave for players to explore it.

    Voez is a preatty good game. I see people doesn't voted it, but I don't really know why. I've enjoyed more Sonic Forces and Voez than Z:BOTW and SMO tbh.

    This will be a close one.
    I haven't played any Switch game but I liked BotW on Wii U.

    Oh the irony if Breath of the Wild wins on Gbatemp.

    Can't really give my opinion since I haven't played anything from this year.

    I thought Xbox was supposed to be next.
    Looks like Breath of the Wild has overtaken Odyssey.

    I don't consider titles which are available already on Wii U as best games of Switch, despite a greatness of BotW & MK8 their place in a predecessor's top list. And out of all what left my Switch's GOTY is Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Also it's sad that there's no Disgaea 5: Complete in the poll.
