Metacritic recently shared the worst rated game of 2020 for the Nintendo Switch (it was Tiny Racer, in case you’re wondering), and now it’s revealed the top 50 highest-scoring Metacritic titles – according to critic scores – for the same platform.

The Nintendo Switch game of the year, according to Metacritic, goes to the indie-hit Hades by Supergiant games. Ori and the Will of the Wisps received the same score (93). And the highest-rated Switch exclusive of 2020, unsurprisingly goes to Animal Crossing: New Horizons by Nintendo.

These games were followed by titles like Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition and further down the list were titles like Super Mario 3D All-Stars, No More Heroes, Among Us, Spiritfarer and Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition. Here’s the full list:
