If you need to ask a question like that, then why did you buy it in the first place? You don't have to buy something because its popular. It's okay to wait or not buy that product at all. If you are buying the console only for traditional Nintendo games, then you either wait until enough of them are on the console to buy it or you play the one Nintendo game that is out and then wait for more to come out.

I love my Switch, but I never tell people to buy one. I always say, its nice but it needs more games. With that said, I think there are plenty of games on it now, but I know for the traditional consumer they will want more diverse games and thats fine. Next year or holiday this year, there will be plenty of compelling non-traditional Nintendo games on the Switch so I would be more incline to recommend it to anyone.

For me, what I love about my Switch is playing traditional games in handheld mode. I didn't think that feature would be so compelling to me. I am not really the biggest fan of mobile games, but I love that feature on the Switch. When Hurricane Irma put my power out I was able to game on my Switch and I loved it. Mind you, I couldnt game for very long on it because I had no power, but being able to play Splatoon 2 for a few hours really helped me take my mind off things.

Why enjoy the many available games and look forward to the new releases when you can whine on the internet about it.

Lon3wolf179d ago

I don't own a Switch or intend to, but I came in to post the same thing.

G3ng4r179d ago

That's what I say. About whine on the internet. Monthly nintendo releases, 3rd party, indies and frequent 3rd party announcements are barely even qualified as games. I bought a tiny snowboard!

G3ng4r179d ago

Imagine having to play all of that on a train, that would SUCK.

ALMGNOON178d ago

"many" ?? what other good exclusives does it have other than Mario Kart and Zelda ??

Kun_ADR178d ago


Currently it has Splatoon 2, Arms, and the recent Mario+Rabbid (which has 85 score on metacritic) and Pokken Tournament. Next month it will have Fire Emblem Warriors and Mario O. I say that is plenty of games beside Mario Kart and BOTW.

Download the OCTOPATH TRAVELER demo

sd11179d ago

Is there a demo? Not looked as i didn't realise there was one.

jjb1981179d ago

It's awesome, I can't wait for the full release. I've put 3 hours into the demo already. The music and the 2D HD, as they call it, is pretty cool looking.

roadkillers179d ago

March: Binding of Isaac, Zelda
April: Mario Kart
June: Arms
July: Splatoon 2
August: Mario + rabbids, Sonic Mania
September: Fifa, Mario Oddy, Pokken,
October: Fire Emblem
November: Skyrim, LA Noir

Only listed the games I give a shit about. If you cant find something here, no taste

slate91178d ago

Dont forget about odyssey. Previews are comparing it to mario 64

nitus10178d ago

Skyrim - played it to death. 😀
Binding of Isaac (old game), Mario Kart, Arms, Splatoon, Mario + rabbids, Sonic Mania, Fifa, Mario Oddy, Pokken, Fire Emblem (old game), LA Noir (old game) - not interested
Zelda Breath of the Wild - Like to play it but not going to buy the Switch for one game when I have a massive backlog of AAA, third party and Indi games.

blady_man178d ago

Kyizen178d ago

Kingdom Battle is truly excellent, Splatton 2 is a blast, MK8 is the funnest game In the world. And super Mario Odyssey drops next month. Xenoblade chronicles 2 in December and loads of other brilliant games.

How about the stop being a pessimist whiney baby and play some games.

whiteblue179d ago (Edited 179d ago )

Loads of games is a bit too much lol

EddieNX 179d ago (Edited 179d ago )

It's not at all. There's tons of stuff already on the Switch and an amazing line up of games.

Majin-vegeta179d ago

and what if none of those are his preferrences?

SuperRaccoon179d ago

Then he should have done some more research before he bought it.

ShottyatLaw179d ago

Then he should have looked at the game library before purchasing?

Pookandpie179d ago (Edited 179d ago )

Then he's absurdly picky. There's platformers, racing games, action-adventure titles galore, RPGs titles coming by end of year plus Disgaea 5, roguelikes, fighting games, beat 'em ups, a few shooting games with more on the way, turn based strategy, puzzle, even games like Harvest Moon (and Story of Seasons), Farming Simulator, various sports games, etc, all on the way.

If you can't find at least a few games to be interested in, that sounds like his problem, because it's certainly not that of the platform's. If he didn't do basic research in what a platform offers, then that's no one's problem but his, and the list of games keeps looking better all the time.

EddieNX 179d ago

Exactly what pookndpie said. There's a wide variety of games so if none of them are his taste, he has bad taste.

Big_Game_Hunters179d ago

Well he is a self proclaimed "Nintendo Lover" So you would imagine those games fall under his preference somewhere.

Cupofjoe178d ago

Then y did he buy it cuz someone said its cool

I know it might not be to everone taste, but i would love a cod or battlefield on it so i could play it on the go!!!

addictedtochaos179d ago

Now? Fast RMX, Mario Kart 8, Mario + Rabbids, Disgaea 5, Splatoon 2, if soccer is your thing then FIFA launches next week. Fire Emblem Warriors and Mario Odyssey are in a few weeks, followed by Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Doom is sometime this year. Dragonball just launched, and more games on the way.

Thatguy-310179d ago

"A Nintendo lovers plea for more things to do on the Switch." That statement is kinda ironic seeing how the switch is a Nintendo lovers dream console. If one is a Nintendo fan then the switch is a platform that they'll love since a lot of the titles that have graced the system so far are what the fans love the most. To top it off they have a lot of titles in the future that are meant to please the dedicated fanbase.

SurgicalMenace179d ago

Most are titles already experienced. Tbh Once you experience Zelda, you either paper weight it or convince yourself that it's worth it to repurchase games you own on other consoles, seriously. Mario, Kart, Smash, wash and repeat. Xenoblade, of course, but that's all in the near future to play. I understand where he is coming from.

Cyro179d ago

I understand that too but why would you buy a Switch without proper research?

Sirk7x178d ago

I'm playing Steamworld Dig 2 right now in handheld mode and it's great.

gbsrnctaln179d ago
