I'm considering getting a Switch almost entirely to play all of the indie games I've missed out on for years in a portable way. Help me make a list of the best ones available:

Cave Story
The Binding of Isaac
VVVVVV
Undertale
Celeste
Shovel Knight

What else?

Stardew Valley

Is this good to play on the Switch? Seems more conducive for PC

I played it on both and enjoyed it as much on both.

I've only played it unmodded, though, so I'm not sure how much that'd add to the experience.

Seconding basically every single thing mentioned, though I was less impressed with The Messenger than most people were and I never played Golf Story

Battle Chef Brigade is a pretty good one
Downwell is almost perfect and only like three bucks
Wargroove just came out and is basically Advance Wars but with fantasy theming

I guess Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon counts as indie

No one played Slime-San and thats a shame. My second favorite switch indie after Hollow Knight - I even got the collectors edition from limited run games. If you want to play a difficult platformer similar to super meat boy you should check it out

Crypt of the Necrodancer

This is another one that I assumed would play optimally on the PC with a keyboard, no?

If you have a tendency to fat-finger on a d-pad, then it would be better on PC. Switch has an exclusive playable character though

This isn't out on Switch yet but keep an eye out for Lethal League Blaze

I think many of those physical releases are through Limited Run though, meaning you'll have to buy them secondhand and probably for a super inflated price
