You may have heard, but just in case you haven’t, we’re running our very first GoNintendo Awards this year! We’ll be revealing our list of categories and winners on Saturday, December 31st, 2022, but we need a little input from you first!

While I’ve been talking with staff about the winners in various categories, there’s one that is completely fueled by you guys. The only votes related to this category will be ones that come from readers, so it’s up to you to make the pick!

Dear readers, we’re looking to see what you believe to be the best Switch game of the year for 2022? The only thing we ask is that you nominate a game that released on Switch in 2022. Yes, that include ports that originally came out years ago. If they arrived on Switch in 2022, they count!

You can reply with your choice (and explanation, if you so choose) in the comments below. We’ll be tabulating the votes before we share our GoNintendo Game Awards on Dec. 31st, 2022, and the game that gets mentioned the most by you guys will get the GN Player’s Choice Award. You can also share your answer on Twitter if you’d rather that take route. No matter where you comment, your vote counts!

Thanks for your participation, gang. We’ll all find out the winner together this weekend!

I played a lot of games on my Switch but I think the only one that was released on 2022 it was TNMT: Shredder Revenge so it has to be my pick XD, but I really wanted to play Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Bayonetta 3

Bayonetta 3 is my choice (very honorable mentions also to Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, Nier Automata, Xenoblade Chronicles X and Kirby and the Forgotten Realms).

Xenoblade Chronicles 3. It's only natural I give more support to my Operation Rainfall roots, but also, because it's a damn fine game, a damn fine JRPG and is easily the biggest Nintendo game this year. I'd be honored to vote for it to win here. Thank you Xenoblade, for giving me yet another progressive forwardization in RPGs.
