- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
When it was first announced, it was hard to believe Skyrim would run properly (if at all) on Switch. How could Bethesda’s massive open-world RPG run smoothly on a handheld console?
After seeing a demo at PAX West 2017, IGN wrote, “It’s Skyrim. On Switch.” It simply worked, and with this sentiment, skepticism gave way to optimism, worry to excitement.
As with the versions before it, Skyrim on Switch included plenty of bugs — hence its lower position on this list — but to a degree, it didn’t matter; Skyrim was in your pocket. Thanks to the Switch port, what was unthinkable at the time of its release in 2011 became a reality just six years later.
