How we decided on our eShop Selects top three: At the end of each month, the Nintendo Life staff votes for their favorite game from a list of games selected by the editorial team. To be eligible for this list, games must have been released as digital-only Nintendo Switch eShop titles for that particular month and must have been reviewed on Nintendo Life; we select games that qualify based on their ratings.
The staff is then asked to vote for the three games they think should be at the top of the list; 3 points for first choice, 2 points for second choice and 1 point for third choice. These votes are then counted to create a top three list, with the overall winner receiving the top prize for the month.
