It’s no secret that Nintendo’s Switch is doing well. In fact, it’s currently well on its way to being one of the most successful consoles in history. One of the reasons behind this success can be laid at the feet of a certain Italian plumber. As Nintendo’s mascot, Mario-branded games always do well in terms of sales. Is it little wonder that the folks behind the scenes have pushed out so many Mario games on a single console. Longtime Mario fans have their choice between an impressive number of games, and the following are the top Mario games for the Switch.

7. The Original Donkey Kong
The game that started it all. The Original Donkey Kong allowed players to take control of a then-nameless plumber to save a then-nameless damsel in distress. It’s the one game on this list that predates Bowser, Yoshi, or any of the other Mario mainstays. Personally, I’m a bit too young to have experienced it when it first came out in 1981. Playing it on the Switch, however, is fairly straightforward, a bit too straightforward. Most people will argue the game is a bit on the basic side, which is fine because many of the other games on this list wouldn’t exist if not for this one.
