5) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Nintendo Switch) – Metacritic Score: 84
Bethesda’s hugely popular RPG made its way to yet another platform this month. It is generally the same game that offers hundreds of hours of content but it has been ported excellently to Nintendo’s console. As you’d expect, it often shows its age, but the game’s open world is impressive and a joy to explore. The Switch version also includes all the DLC packs that add even more quests to the game. When docked, this version of Skyrim may not be the best choice, but in handheld mode, it’s unlike any other game on the system.
Skyrim is a stunning game in and of itself, but being able to play it wherever you go takes it to another level. Simply getting such a huge game to run on a portable console is a feat on its own. It was also ported to PlayStation VR this month and it is one of the best games on that platform, too.
