Best Nintendo Switch Games #7 – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Developer: Bethesda

Synopsis: Dragons have returned to the land of Skyrim, just as a brewing conflict between two factions comes to a head. While they fight to realize their vision of Skyrim, you, the Dragonborn, are summoned by the Greybeards to hone the power of your Dragon shouts so that you might battle the coming threat. Will you immediately vanquish the dragons, join the war, or just traipse across the snowy wilderness, digging through caves and fraternizing with vampires? It’s up to you–your story is your own.

Why it’s one of the best Nintendo Switch games: Skyrim’s popularity, so many years after its release, is a testament to the breadth and depth of the world Bethesda created. Even as its graphics become increasingly outdated, we still love to revisit Skyrim on any console we can, though never before has the game been portable. Picking up the adventure of the Dragonborn and taking it anywhere allows for busy adults to embrace the journey once again or even for the first time. Whether you haven’t yet seen the story of the Dragonborn through or just want a few hours to wander solitary snowscapes, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim remains an incredible and worthy journey.
