Essential Things to Think About When Buying Used Nintendo Switch Video Games

When buying a used Nintendo Switch game, there are a few things that you should consider:

  • Condition: The condition of a video game can strongly affect the performance of the game, so be sure to have confidence in the item’s physical quality before bidding or buying!
  • Rating: Be sure to look at the game's rating before making a purchase—especially if it’s for a child! Some game content may not be suitable for younger audiences. Take a look at the ESRB’s rating guide for more information about video game ratings.
