The top item of the list for anyone who doesn't already own one has to be the Nintendo Switch OLED. The revised system released in October 2021 and vastly improved the screen, kickstand, speakers and dock. The Cubed3 Nintendo Switch OLED review highlights that gamers playing in handheld mode will appreciate the differences in comparison to the older Nintendo Switch models but those playing it in docked mode will still have a very capable system.
