Best Nintendo Switch games Get ready for Nintendo Switch, round two. When the Nintendo Switch Online service launched in September, it marked a new stage for the house of Mario, which had proved its resurgence with the runaway success of its half-portable, half-home console.

These were some of the ingredients chosen by video game developers in the late '90s to mid 2000s to create awesome virtual experiences based on our favorite extreme — excuse me, XTREME — sports, and we couldn't have enough.Chaining endless combos in THPS 2, busting crazy, over-the-top tricks in SSX, or racing friends down the slopes in 1080 Snowboarding – that was the heyday of extreme sports games.
