- Stardew Valley
As with Undertale and Shovel Knight, Stardew Valley feels at home on Switch. However, its compatibility with Nintendo’s hybrid console extends beyond feeling; it’s a practical pairing.
Stardew Valley is highly enjoyable in short bursts, and Switch’s portability enables that type of play. Five minutes of free time before work? Check the in-game TV. Half an hour for lunch? Tend to your crops. Time to kill on your commute home? Talk to some villagers, mine resources, go fishing. It’s a rare game that can be equally enjoyable for five minutes or five hours.
