The best games you can get if you only have an eShop gift card

Readers of Vooks will long know that we love to share our thoughts and opinions on a variety of topics. We have reviews all the time, we also have bargain guides so you can save money on upcoming games, but we also share deals on our Twitterfor those who are instantly hot and need to be watched ASAP.

We also like to offer guides, from our detailed and still very useful Switch MEGA buyer’s guide to the roundup of the best free-to-start games on Switch and sometimes we like to shake our magic 8-ball and see what we can predict. The trend towards all of these is that we want to help you get the most out of your Switch, whether you’ve had your console since launch day, or are about to pick one up.

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

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

One final note: these games are the highest price you’ll pay, but new games are added to the eShop’s sales page every week, some only discounted by 10%, others over 50%. Make sure to keep an eye on our weekly sales round so you get the best possible price because sometimes waiting a week can save you a good amount of coins.

So there you have it, a wide selection of games in every gift shop price range, covering many genres. The list could of course be infinitely longer, but we chose to pick the games that, for whatever reason, impressed us the most.
