This poll is now closed.
I'm here to find the general consensus on what is the best Switch game released every month! I’m going to be doing this for both current months and eventually months of years past.

Our current winners board looks like this:

March 2017: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
April 2017: Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
February 2018: Bayonetta 2
March 2018: Kirby: Star Allies
April 2018: South Park: The Fractured But Whole
February 2019: Tetris 99
March 2019: Yoshi’s Crafted World
April 2019: Dragon's Dogma
May 2019: Resident Evil 4

For this thread we have many different types of games! Which one do you like best?

Of course, I only had room for nine games in the poll, and there were a ton of games released that month! If your favorite switch game from that month isn't on the list, tell us about it! Maybe there is a hidden gem I don't know about among all the smaller titles.

So, before we get started, here are some trailers to get you familiar with the titles in the poll, in case you haven't seen them before:

Would the person who voted for other please list what game they are voting for? I can't count it toward the tally if you don't actually tell me what it is.

No one remembers to do this and so most of the 'other' votes end up in the trash.

Disgaea 5 is awesome, I had such a great time with that game.
Yeah... Sorry.

This was a tough month, I didn't pick up anything back then for Switch (busy doing my 2nd playthrough of BotW, and playing sessions of Mario Kart 8D which came out at very end of April).

But if I had to have picked something, it likely would have been Disgaea 5.

Thumper, Minecraft and Disgaea 5 are all great, but I'll give the edge to Thumper for just being so much fun to play.

Disgaea 5 for me, but even I thought the game wasn't anything for me to write to the missus about.

Then again, I'm kind of not that into SRPGs nowadays and I haven't gotten far in it yet. Besides, I'm kind of more excited for 4 Complete+...which I've never played, but I heard plenty of praise for it.

I thought this was in June 2017...?

Nah, both the Nintendo website and my personal spreadsheet I've been updating since launch says the release date was May 11th, 2017.

Of course, I'm going by the NA release, so if you aren't in America your release date might be different.

Okay. Shoot.

I remember buying it back in June 2017. Thanks for the clarification.

As for the game itself, it's...pretty lacking as a rhythm game (and this is a huge Dark Witch fan here talking). I'd still rather play this over Dark Witch 3 on 3DS, though.

bump to get some more exposure in. I will be posting my next poll sometime this weekend so this one doesn't have long to go.

Not that there is much anyone can do to stop Disgaea from winning at this point, but you never know!
