In 2017, Nintendo took the gaming world by storm with its new console: The Switch. Aptly named, this handheld/console hybrid sold like hotcakes, and in the years since its release, that popularity hasn’t waned a bit. We (and millions of people around the world) love the Nintendo Switch for its great game library and portability, which makes it perhaps the best console for those looking to get their game on this summer. If you haven’t yet jumped on the Switch train, there’s never been a better time to buy.

As you probably know already, the Nintendo Switch is a hybrid gaming system that combines the elements of both a traditional TV-connected console and a handheld gaming device. After decades of offering separate consoles and handhelds, Nintendo combined the two into one device, and the gambit paid off: The Switch has seen massive success, and it’s the perfect fit for the modern world of mobile technology.

It’s easy to see why the Switch is such a good gaming system for summer, too. Sometimes, you want to stay inside and bask in the coolness of your air conditioning while you chill on the couch with some video games. The Switch can do that when it’s docked and hooked up to your TV. On the other hand, you’re probably out and about more during the summer than you are during colder seasons, especially with vacations and other summer trips taking up more of your time. The Switch can go along with you on all of those adventures, as the gaming system itself is the handheld device. Slide on the Joy-Con controllers and you’ve got a bona fide handheld gaming device that you can take outside, over to a friend’s house, on your next road trip, or wherever.

Of course, any gaming system is only as good as its library, and the Switch is no slouch here. Since its 2017 release, Nintendo has built up an impressive catalog of titles for its hybrid console, with the best Switch games covering a dizzying array of genres from action and RPGs to shooters and platformers. There have also been a couple of variants of the Switch to hit the market, including the Nintendo Switch Lite, which is a cheaper handheld-only alternative to the standard console, and the newer Nintendo Switch OLED, which adds some noteworthy upgrades like the namesake OLED display and improved audio.

Whichever model you pick up, you really can’t go wrong with the Nintendo Switch if you’re looking for the perfect gaming console to get this summer. Better still, GameStop currently has all three models in stock, including some professionally refurbished units that let you save some cash.
