These are the best motion control games on the Nintendo Switch. Any time we scoff at the idea of motion controls as a system gimmick, Nintendo turns back around and surprises us with incredible games that use the feature. You can't go wrong with any of these choices, but our favorite is Ring Fit Adventure. Taking advantage of the Joy-Cons in unexpected ways, Ring Fit Adventure is more than just exercise; it's a full-blown, fully realized action-adventure title.

But for those interested in solely fitness, Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm & Exercise is a solid choice that will help you reach your fitness goals. Sync up with the music, and punch to the rhythm of the beat. Even cooler, if you have the first Fitness Boxing game, you can transfer your progress and goals into the new game, so it'll be like you didn't miss a day of your workout. Be sure to grab an extra pair of Joy-Cons so a friend can join in on your workout.
