It may be relatively geriatric in gaming terms but the Nintendo Switch is still going great guns with some excellent releases this year refreshing what was already a top-tier library of games.
With some of these newer releases (and a few evergreen titles) in mind, I was perusing some of the best deals on top titles and have come to the conclusion that the theory that Switch games never go on sale is nonsense. Even new releases like the incredible Mario Wonder are cut price in the build-up to Black Friday. Here's my top picks for 5-star prices on 5-star games.
