How many of Nintendo Switch's 'best-selling indie games of 2020' did you play?

I got Streets of Rage 4, that's it.

Nintendo rounded up 16 of the year's top-sellers



Nintendo highlighted the best-selling indie games of 2020 on Nintendo Switch, and not to guilt-trip you or anything, but I'm curious: how many of these did you manage to play? Anything slip by? Any to-dos?

Here's the list of games, in order of appearance:
  1. Hades
  2. Streets of Rage 4
  3. Spiritfarer
  4. Moving Out
  5. Ori and the Will of the Wisps
  6. Carrion
  7. What the Golf?
  8. Shantae and the Seven Sirens
  9. Super Mega Baseball 3
  10. Superliminal
  11. The Jackbox Party Pack 7
  12. Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin
  13. Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition
  14. CrossCode
  15. Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2
  16. Neon Abyss

We could get into which of these games are truly "indie" in spirit, but they're all keepers.

I left Spiritfarer hanging somewhere in the middle of the story, and I still feel bad about it. (Don't worry, I'm planning to return.) Of the stuff I haven't checked out yet but am open to playing, the mind-bending puzzles of Superliminal and the soothing ARPG vibes of CrossCode are speaking to me the most.

Otherwise, there's a little bit of everything on this list – Castlevania-style platforming, calm rice farming, party-game hijinks, a goofy sports game and a comparatively serious one, and the untouchable Hades.

I'm a little surprised to see A Short Hike and Manifold Garden miss the cutoff. Anything else?

I can play Streets of Rage on Xbox gamepass, so maybe I will download it on that.
