7. PAC-MAN Championship Edition 2
As much as the Nintendo Switch seems like an attempt of Nintendo to win back traditional gamers, Nintendo is likely not about to abandon its goal of turning non-gaming people into game players, which started with the Wii. If that’s the case, Nintendo should get the newest PAC-MAN game on the Switch. Being a reinvention of the classic title, Championship Edition 2 is one part old and one part new in such a way that would be a hit with lapsed or older gamers. The gameplay is simple enough to grasp but fun to master, and the arcade-style play style makes for easily digestible sessions. This design would be perfect for both home and portable modes in a way that would highlight the Switch’s features. With a straightforward construction and lower price point, PAC-MAN Championship Edition 2 stands out as a possible competitor to mobile games like Candy Crush Saga and Color Switch that pulled audiences away from the Wii just in time for them to not support the Wii U. These are the kinds of audiences that will be instrumental in the longevity of the Nintendo Switch in popular culture outside of traditional games. We all saw what happened with the Wii’s impact, and Nintendo could secure that again. PAC-MAN Championship Edition 2 is fantastic to pick up and play and incredibly fun to do so. Plus the Joy-Con controllers and the Switch Pro controller use analog sticks, and that is just simply a better way to play an arcade game like PAC-MAN.
