Since launching back in 2017, Switch’s success has arguably been down to its chameleon-like ability to suit any gamer’s preferred style of play. You can play it where you want and how you want. The ability to crack off the Joy-Con for impromptu multiplayer sessions on the TV (or on-the-go) makes it the go-to console for gaming sessions with friends. Everyone loves a bit of couch co-op, right?

However, while it’s easy to focus on the console’s local multiplayer potential, its portability also lends itself perfectly to engrossing single-player experiences, and in the list below we’ve collected together the very best single player games on Switch.

In order to qualify for this list, the games have to single-player only, which means no co-op or competitive modes, online or otherwise. Check out our reader-ranked Best Switch Games article for the top 50 Switch games ever if you just want the best Switch games, period; here, we’re focusing on games you can only play on your lonesome. Or with a pal watching over your shoulder, perhaps.
