Monster Hunter Rise could easily be the best Nintendo Switch game not made by Nintendo. We shot it big, maybe, but it’s hard to find anything else at its level. Since launch, Monster Hunter Rise has gotten even bigger and better, with more monsters to catch and gear to build. With the Sunbreak expansion coming out next year, there has never been a better time to start playing.

Metroid Dread | Nintendo Switch —

Despite the title, Metroid Dread isn’t that scary (and it’s already discounted for Black Friday, although it’s just launched). Yes, it has a few almost invincible foes to hunt you down, but it’s more thriller than horror. Metroid Dread is the fifth installment in the main Metroid 2D series, something fans have been waiting for for a decade. Against all odds, it’s also a great game. Dread has all the elements of the previous Metroids, plus a few new ones, and refines some historical edges. Furthermore, it is beautiful to see, whether you play it on a TV or on the OLED screen of the new Nintendo Switch model.

Pokémon Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl | Nintendo Switch –

Pokémon is back – again! This time, Game Freak has brought the fifth generation of Pokémon games back to life, which had made its Nintendo DS debut more than 15 years ago. Top-notch material for a remake and great timing, at a time when nostalgia for those times is stronger than ever. The new art style and new mechanics added to the game are exciting, which – if you add that the two titles just came out on November 19th – makes Diamond Shining and Pearl Shining great choices for a gift.


Halo Infinite | Xbox, PC —

Halo Infinite is another great game coming out in December after a very long wait and some significant postponements. As evidenced by the multiplayer beta now underway, it looks like it was worth it: Halo Infinite runs smoothly, has nice graphics, and loads of powerful weapons – which is always a good thing. big more. We will have to check how the campaign will be but we will find out very soon, on December 8th, just in time to end up in the shopping cart for Christmas.
