With the COVID-19 pandemic reaching a peak, people are staying indoors and finding new ways to entertain themselves and their families. Fortunately, if you own a Nintendo Switch, this is an easy task. Many peoples’ days consist of making some ramen, plugging in their Switch, and settling in for a long day of gaming.

But what are the best games for hours on end of continuous fun? Luckily the Nintendo Switch has a plethora of amazing titles to choose from for hours of non-stop solo gaming or family-friendly fun.

One of these titles is obviously the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The Breath of the Wild is considered by many to be one of the best LoZ titles to date, and consistently makes top 5 lists for best Nintendo Switch titles.

Breath of the Wild is set in a beautiful landscape filled with interesting characters, charming creatures, and ground-breaking game mechanics. This is easily a title that one could get lost in for hours.

Another interesting and lovable title is Luigi’s Mansion 3. Luigi’s Mansion 3 is smartly designed and inescapably charming. Each of the 17 floors of the hotel the game takes place in is designed to make the player think and constantly tweak their gaming style as they attempt to weaken ghosts enough to capture them.

With lovable characters and innovative gameplay, Luigi’s Mansion 3 has more than enough panache to keep someone coming back for more.

If for nothing else, Animal Crossing: New Horizons makes this list for its charisma. New Horizons is a game that somehow manages to convince its audience that doing chores on an island and not getting paid for it is fun.

The art style is adorable, the gameplay is mostly smooth and uninhibited, and the villagers available to live on your island have a wonderful sense of personality. One of the best parts about this game is that it can be enjoyed solo, or with your family and friends.

There are few games in the video game industry that can capture the same bond-breaking energy as Monopoly, but Super Mario Party manages to do so. Super Mario Party takes everything that people loved about the previous titles and improves upon it. The stages are interesting and challenging, and the minigames are numerous and insanely fun.

If you want to spend your time in quarantine with all remaining limbs intact, this game might not be for your family, but no one can say that it isn’t one of the most enjoyable party games on the market.

Finally, what became an instant classic on the Wii returns on the Switch in the form of Just Dance 2019. Although the game doesn’t feature innovative graphics or gameplay, Just Dance 2019 is definitely a Switch title that the entire family can enjoy, with 6 players able to join in at one time.

It features a huge assortment of songs and includes 8 exclusive choreographies that help young children stay active. Just Dance makes this list mostly for its ability to keep the player active and healthy with exercise. It’s important to keep your mind and body healthy whilst in isolation.
