In two months, I am getting a 4K HD TV for my birthday at December. So I want to know which 4K HD TV do you guys recommend for PS4 and possibly Switch.

For the best picture, OLED is the way to go, hands down. The one caveat to that is this. When I was looking into tvs when I bought mine (Sony Bravia 75" X900E) was they had some minor burn in issues, especially if you were to play a game with a stationary HUD for several hours at a time. I cannot speak to if that problem has been fixed, but that was one of the things that held me back. Also, I wanted the bigger screen, and the X900E still had a fantastic picture, so I opted for it instead.
If it makes any difference, I have had my tv almost 2 years now, it gets used for on average several hours a day, and it still looks as beautiful as the day I opened the box. Never had an issue.
Size only matters depending on how far you're going to be sitting when playing games on it. If it's a TV for your bedroom and you're going to be sitting close to it, then anything between 28" and 43" inches will work just fine for you. If the TV is for a living room and you're planning to sit away at a considerable distance, then a bigger screen is what you need. Just something to have in mind because there's little point in having a 65-80" TV if you're going to be sitting right close to it. You're not going to be able to enjoy it at its fullest.
As others commented above, OLED screens look so much better. I think these are the way to go. Unfortunately, I cannot give price references for them because the ones I saw when I was researching for a new TV were priced locally between $2,100-2,400 for a 65" OLED LG TV. So, yeah, no thanks. xP
Also, do proper research on the brands and be sure to give others a try as well. Not all "big name" brands are worth it in my opinion. Have an LG TV that has been more of a headache than anything. Recently bought an AIWA 50" 4K LED TV for $385 and I've been pretty pleased with it so far. Doubt you can find this brand in the US at the moment but similarly priced brands that I've heard from there are TCL and maybe Hisense. You could probably find something similar to what I got for $200-250. If you're on a budget, they may help you save money in the long run. In my case, I went for AIWA because I've owned other AIWA products in the past and I've never had any problems with them. So, despite their cheaper price, they do deliver in the long run.
Best of luck!
Whatever you get, if you plan to keep it for long, 5-8yrs. Buy extra insurance for it. It's not much but will save you the headaches later on. I've had my TV for over 15yrs now and not one issue though. Sony is pretty much the best in quality still and then Samsung. Cant really go wrong with them. Then you got LG and Vizio isnt bad. I personally think QLED is the best to go for for now, maybe a few years till OLED gets way cheaper and perfected.
