The best games to get when you only have an eShop Gift Card

Long time readers of Vooks will know that we like to provide our thoughts and opinions on a variety of topics. We have reviews happening all the time, we also do bargain guides so you can save money on up and coming games, but we also share deals on our Twitter, for those that are instant hot and should be looked at asap.

We also like to offer up guides, from our detailed and still very helpful Switch MEGA buyer’s guide to the the collection of the Best Free-to-Start games on Switch and heck, sometimes we like to shake our magic 8-ball and see what we can predict. The trend to all of these, is that we want to help you get the most out of your Switch, regardless if you have had your console since launch day, or just about to pick one up.

With the Nintendo eShop Gift Cards, you can provide someone with a pre-set amount of money, to spend on anything they would like and they occasionally get discounts, like 10 or 15% off. In Australia the cards come in denominations of $15, $30 and $60, so we scoured the eShop and came up with a collection of games, that you can get for each card.

There is nothing stopping you from getting or giving a $30 card and picking up two games from the first group, and we won’t judge if you do. What this list is for however is that if you do get a gift card, these are the games that are priced at or below the card amounts, regardless of sale status, that you can get and we think you will enjoy.

One final note, these games prices are the most you will pay, but each week new games are added to the sales page of the eShop, some may only get a 10% discount, some could get more than 50%. Be sure to keep an eye on our weekly sales roundup, so you can get the best possible price, because sometimes waiting a week, could save you a good amount of coin.

So there you have it, a wide selection of games in each gift shop price bracket, that cover a lot of genres. The list could be infinitely longer of course, but we opted to choose the games that made the biggest impression on us, for whatever reason.

Are there games that you would have added to the list, be sure to let us know in the comments.

What's your reaction?
Oh wow!
