Kyle from Switchtactics notes; "By my count, there are now over 700 titles either released on or bound for the Nintendo Switch."
too much support, too much game, too little time, but with portability it allows you to make a little time wherever you are
so all I see is meh meh meh Octotraveler meh meh meh meh Metroid Prime 4 meh meh meh.. Weak Library. The switch may not even catch up to the xbox with this library.
Seriously? It has something in basically every genre right now. Like platformers? Mario Odyssey is among the top, currently, but there's also Azure Striker Gunvolt 1+2, Mighty Gunvolt Burst, Blaster Master Zero, Shovel Knight, Shantae. Like action-adventure games? Zelda: Breath of the Wild is your go-to and is one of the best games made this year (which says something among the blockbusters that came out in 2017). Racing? MK8D, Fast RMX, with Redout on the way. Like RPGs? Skyrim, Xenoblade 2, I Am Setsuna, Nine Parchments Lost Sphear (on the way), Octopath Traveler (on the way). Like beat 'em ups? Fire Emblem Warriors, Bayonetta 1, 2, 3 (on the way). Shooters? Doom, Splatoon 2, Resident Evil Revelations, Metroid Prime 4 (on the way). Like strategy games? Disgaea 5, Mario + Rabbids, Worms, and more. This isn't withstanding ones popular ports like Stardew Valley, plenty of rogue likes (Binding of Isaac, etc.), and lots more. There's basically a little bit of everything on the platform and it's just the first year. Hell, I found myself picking up plenty of games I already had on Steam/PS4 simply because having them portable is a massive boon.
True its lacking third party supports, thankfully it has the most desired exclusives of any console this gen.
Mario and Zelda are already out. And Bayonetta 3 is disappointing. It shouldn't be on this system. I have a Switch since launch, it doesn't belong on this platform. Third party games shouldn't even exist on this platform as far as I'm concerned unless it's a quirky game or rpg exclusive.
650 of them are indies
Sony and Microsoft better up their game. Ninty's back with a vengeance!
As someone who owns both a PS4 and a Switch, I really am happy to see this competition. It will benefit all of us as consumers.
Behold! Common sense! Let its glorious light be cast upon your blind, unworthy eyes, N4G haters!
Your spot on. I'm a xbox one x and switch owner and have less time than ever to game so struggling to fit games in as it is now but great to see Nintendo getting some support for the switch for me I loved the with it just lacked 3rd party support its now getting that and will only make the industry stronger imo. If Microsoft up the 1st party games to and sony already has a Stella lineup the industry could be as big as it was with the 360 ps3 and wii
You mean Xbox because Sony it’s doing just fine.
So much games ;) Surpassing Xbox 1 in no time
Gods damn it! That's a lot of games!
600+ are old indie ports
You do know if you subtract those from other systems the total will be lower too
The problem is they have been out for a long time already and I have played a good number of them. Also some of them don't play as well, like the recent Slain: Back From Hell being on 30fps same with DOOM etc. It's great it's getting support, but let's not act like it's 700+ brand new games...
Facts. They have no place here. The way many of the zealots here were pimping games like resogun, they'd better be thanking the gods for Indies. As if it wasn't for them some of these fanboys wouldn't have had jack shit to play for like almost 2 years.
Do I smell salt in you reply?
Why would I be salty? I own a switch, I know exactly what that store includes.
The switch is shaping up to be one of my all time favourites .
My wallet isn't ready.
I love the Switch! And love the games I have for it, but of those 700 titles about 95% are Indies. Which is of course not a bad thing but not the reason I bought the Switch.
That was certainly reason why we had a PS2 for almost 2 years. Let's not act like your favorite box came roaring out the gate. After having even some of their own fans calling it t the Indie station, you would think that sony fans would steer clear or trying to bring up indies on someone else's platform or minimize them in anyway. Not to mention show a lot more respect than some are here. They saved their ass for a couple years after all. It's funny how brand new some of these fans get once they get a little bit of momentum going after praising, defending; and playing indie games for almost 2 years. Those Indies bough time for you guys to get to this point where you're now finger blasting one another over exclusives all of a sudden. Where's Grimlock, I mean ucforce to come teach and tell some of you about respect when we need 'em? No, I don't think most people by their system for indies for indies. That certainly isn't why I owned a playstation 4 early on. Then again I've never seen a problem with them either and don't really care to separate them. That's for Fanboy/girls and their talking points, not for gamers. A game is a game. And as long as I'm having fun with it, that's all that matters.
Please, it's not as if in the first year there weren't many, many AAA 3rd party titles available for the PS4, in November/December 2013 alone there were 13 AAA titles, that's 2 months after release, the Switch doesn't have that many after what?, 10 months? Like I said, I love the Switch, but I didn't buy it for Indies and 3rd party titles I can also play on my PS4 Pro. I always said I didn't care about trophies but the Switch made me realise that I rather like going up a level on the PS4. It's also the place where most of my friends are so multiplayer games are being played there as well. I bought the Switch for Nintendo and 3rd party exclusives, nothing more, nothing less, don't act like my opinion doesn't count, and you talk about respect, ha!
'Please, it's not as if in the first year there weren't many, many AAA 3rd party titles available for the PS4' Which is why I waited until Bloodborne was released until I bought a ps4, I can play 3rd party games on my pc. The exclusives for ps4 were dire until then, and then it took off. Not such a problem for the Switch.
Only like 6 are triple A's
I don't know about that, but it's absolute fact that we know at least one of them is Game of the Year!😉
Not an exclusive, but true
not an exclusive? He's talking about breath of the wild...
Which is also on the Wii U....
Pay no attention to the haters behind that curtain. They're just being obtuse. Not exactly sure if it's deliberate though given some of the shit that you'll see and read here. Aenea25m ago Which is also on the Wii U.... Just like most of what rhe ps4 had was also on the ps3, 360 and even Wii U. Hell, one of the games quite a few here were felating and getting moist over (wirh some even calling it their GOTY) was a f*****ng ps3 game as well. Yet many here were ecstatic over persona 5 and proudly flauntung it as an exclusive. So gtfo here with your selective bullshit aenea. What's funny is that most of the minority not drinking the yoshida yum yum juice can probably recall not seeing your sony worshipping ass as eager (or even around) to fact check or point out the finer details at any tiime then.. The fact if the matter is that sony (and many of their fans) rode indies, remasters and ports like a "working girl" would a sailor on shore leave for quite a bit there. Then again, we did have world beaters like killzone and kna...😆😂 🤣. Ahhh man, I couldn't even finish that sentence with a straight face and without cracking up. Anyway, it happens. Let's not act brand new and like history didn't happen though. The same way some of you conveniently choose to forget, some of us can't help but remember.
It's cool for switch gamers, but come on. You crappy Nintendo fanboys were clowning systems with this type of library, and now it's all "wow! So many games!" I mean 30 of them are neo geo re releases for goodness sakes.
those tears sure taste good, I guess you're bored with your remasters? excuse me while I go to the bowl and play some games LOL
Vita has 1521 games right now.
Knushwood Butt, no one cares about the Vita. Not even Sony.
Shovelware again nintendo? Dont let what happened to the ds happen again
Glad I've Switched last month, Odyssey is a masterpiece, Mario Kart 8 is awesome, can't wait for more to come and especially looking forward to the crescendo that is Pokemon.
What is the ratio breakdown of garbage, old games, and ports vs new exciting games? iPhone and Android have millions of apps/games does not make them all good. Hopefully the marketplace doesn't turn into a dumping cash grab store like all the others.
