How many of Nintendo Switch's 'best-selling indie games of 2020' did you play?


Nintendo rounded up 16 of the year's top-sellers

Nintendo highlighted the best-selling indie games of 2020 on Nintendo Switch, and not to guilt-trip you or anything, but I'm curious: how many of these did you manage to play? Anything slip by? Any to-dos?

Here's the list of games, in order of appearance:

  • Hades
  • Streets of Rage 4
  • Spiritfarer
  • Moving Out
  • Ori and the Will of the Wisps
  • Carrion
  • What the Golf?
  • Shantae and the Seven Sirens
  • Super Mega Baseball 3
  • Superliminal
  • The Jackbox Party Pack 7
  • Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin
  • Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition
  • CrossCode
  • Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2
  • Neon Abyss

We could get into which of these games are truly "indie" in spirit, but they're all keepers.

I left Spiritfarer hanging somewhere in the middle of the story, and I still feel bad about it. (Don't worry, I'm planning to return.) Of the stuff I haven't checked out yet but am open to playing, the mind-bending puzzles of Superliminal and the soothing ARPG vibes of CrossCode are speaking to me the most.

Otherwise, there's a little bit of everything on this list – Castlevania-style platforming, calm rice farming, party-game hijinks, a goofy sports game and a comparatively serious one, and the untouchable Hades.

I'm a little surprised to see A Short Hike and Manifold Garden miss the cutoff. Anything else?
