Official Nerds Gone Rogue Endorsement #1

Often on Nerds Gone Rogue, we receive the question, “What are the best indie games to play on the Nintendo Switch?” On Episode 152, we decided to have a real discussion on the subject. Matthew brought nearly 70 indie games playable on Nintendo’s wonderful console and both Corey and Moose participated in the discussion to narrow down our 20 favorites. Below you’ll find our 20 favorites and US pricing (as of July 8, 2019) as well as 6 honorable mentions and the games that were also brought to the conversation.
