Due to the hardware constraints of the Nintendo Switch, the console cannot support some more graphically intensive games that appear on PC, PS5, or Xbox Series X. The Japanese gaming company has created a fix for this with Nintendo Switch Cloud Streaming, which has you play games streamed from the cloud rather than downloading them locally to your device. Since you're streaming, they don't take up any room on your microSD card. Here are all of the games currently available via cloud streaming.

Control Ultimate Edition

Head in the clouds

It's pretty awesome that we're able to play these more graphically intensive games on the Nintendo Switch Cloud without having to purchase a more expensive console. If you're only going to play one game, I highly recommend making it Control Ultimate Edition. This game is so filled with mystery, supernatural powers, and creepy baddies that you'll seriously get pulled in.

If you're looking for something a bit more lighthearted, check out Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. It's a crazy adventure starring your familiar heroes in a brand new story that works beautifully while feeling distinctly different from the movies.

Lastly, you'll definitely want to play Kingdom Hearts - HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMix. The plot is absolute lunacy, but you'll be so drawn in with all of the upbeat humor and close friendships that you won't mind. Plus, you'll get to travel to Disney worlds and interact with some of your very favorite characters.
