If you prefer nostalgic family fun to bloody-thirsty shoot 'em ups, the Nintendo Switch is the games console for you. It more than makes up for its lack of 4K graphics with an awesome selection of games including huge hits like Mario Kart.   

The standard Nintendo Switch costs $300 and doubles as a portable console. Slot the tablet-sized screen into the controller, and you can take Super Smash Bros, Donkey Kong and Animal Crossing wherever you go.

The handheld Nintendo Switch Lite is cheaper, at $200. It's purely for gaming on the go – it can't be used to play games on your TV and doesn't come with a dock. The Lite has a slightly smaller screen, too (5.5in, compared to the Switch's 6.2in display). 

The new Switch (OLED model), which launched in early October, is the priciest at $350. The extra spend gets you an upgraded 7-inch OLED display, enhanced audio and twice as much internal storage as the standard Switch.
