9 Switch games guaranteed to put you on the naughty list

Turns out there can be too much Christmas cheer, especially during the week before the big day when we’re fed up with the sight of the cute snowman shops hawking since October and motley singing bands lurking around. the streets murdering out loud every song you thought you liked and having the nerve to ask for money to do it. It’s enough for anyone to turn to Alone at home‘s Kevin McCallister for the festive inspiration, setting up red irons and blowtorches to repel anyone who dares get too close.

Sadly, in the real world, his destructive improv style isn’t seen as the ingenious work of a mischievous crook trying to keep himself from harm, so we’ll have to settle for the best thing instead: switching that allow us to either be more than just mean to us or give us the chance to escape for a short time into a world that is more Halloween than Christmas Eve.

Let’s take a look at nine great Switch games to explore your dark side

By design, you are not a character but a relentless predator in Carrion, with each act causing more destruction and bringing you closer and closer to an inevitable freedom that is terrifying and destructive to humanity.
