Nothing that can soothe your mind like blasting your weapons after a long and tedious day at work/school. These first-person shooters for Nintendo Switch will give you the peace of mind you are longing for! Or an adrenalin surge, whatever you are after. We're not judging.

Nintendo is generally associated with family friendly fun - all bright mushroom kingdoms, rolling hills, and wide-eyed innocence. We would never wish to change that.

But we also love a good first-person shooter. Sometimes, all we want to do is blasting some enemies to bits with guns and rocket launchers. Virtually, of course.

Thankfully, being a fan of Nintendo Switch doesn't mean you have to repress your shooter desires, nor do you have to look elsewhere to get your kinetic kicks. The Switch is home to a whole bunch of brilliant blasters.

And what a wonderful variety of shooters for Switch we have to draw from. There are glossy first person shooters, hardcore shmups, and classic run and gunners. If you like any of the games from the list, head out to the Nintendo Store and grab them!

We've featured a good spread of all these shooter strains in the following top 25 list. Indeed, we haven't been able to include all of the first person shooters on Nintendo Switch we'd like, so do share your favourite examples in the comments section if they don't make an appearance.
