Nintendo has released multiple first-party games that are lacking in content this generation. Let's speculate on why this is happening.
On top of that, Nintendo has released less first party games in general on Switch than they did during the 3DS & Wii U eras Having less games put out and the ones that are put out having less content than is expected is atrocious. If you’re going to release less titles, you’d better make sure each of them are very feature rich right out the gate. None of that “we’ll patch it in later” crap that’s infected many of their titles
And now that devs don't have to make games for 2 separate machines, you'd expect more games & more content at the same time. Nintendo are really milking it.
all of the big three have released less games the past 2 years due to what is going on.
No, Sony has released lot’s of exclusives since the start of 2020.
@Levii_92 - and there are some that have been pushed.
@Levii Nintendo has published more content than Sony so far this year.
Okay well i don't know what are you two smoking .. do i really need to stoop down to that level of naming every exclusive and compare it to Nintendo like a some kid ? Do your research. @septemberindecember Ninty hasn't released squat this year or last year as far as i'm concerned. The only game i bought in 2020 and was remotely interested in for switch was 3d all stars and that was very disappointing how it turned out.
@levii Okay, but it isn't about what you are personally interested in. They've released more games period. Are we talking about releases or our personal taste in games? Because I don't care what your taste in games is.
Why release games with content when you can just release half-assed games and make people pay full price for 1 to 3-year-old games?
Oh you mena like Sony is doing with their corss gen games right?
Sony isnt doing that though. Are you mad about all the quality and quantity Sony are releasing?
Then please tell me by all means what has sony released this year and not counting 3rd party since it's basically those count as multiplatform.
GoW is currently $20 MSRP. It won GOTY 2018. BotW is currently $60 MSRP. It won GOTY in 2017. You are telling me that the GOTY that came out earlier is worth 3 times more?
It's their policy, I dont work at Nintendo nor I make the rules, if they care so much for their products to hardly reduce prices of their own games that's up to them. I get your point and I share it about Nintendo not lowering their prices sucks but that's on Nintendo's phylosophy. But don't say they make half ass games cause they really don't. The do invest some time and work to make it an updated version. Skyward sword is a testament to that.
So like Shadow of the Colossus, Demon's Souls, MediEvil, and FF7? I honestly don't understand your argument, it seems like you are fine with Nintendo doing it but as soon as Sony does anything similar it is the devil.
I don't agree with them on not lowering their prices over time but that's their way to do things so nothing we can do about it since it's their choice in the end. What im argueing with ya is that fact that you and I quote: "Why release games with content when you can just release half-assed games and make people pay full price for 1 to 3-year-old games?" which is not true and you know it or you just refuse to acknowledge it. Nintendo has been getting games this year out and here is to name a few, new wario game this october, new metroid games, No more Heroes 3, Super Mario Golf, a new Super mario Party, Skyward Sword HD. and so on. Yet you claim that Nintendo does not produce content...see how that previous statement from you is plain BS?
Mario Golf: Super Rush is getting additional free content to extend shelf life. It’s probably not the best example for first party Switch games.
AND the prices rarely drop below $60
Its been that way for a few generations now. Start off with the majors e.g zelda & mario, the do the lower tier games like animal crossing, pikmin, mario spinoffs, then finish with the majors …zelda, metroid if we’re lucky.
Well, obviously they can do the bare minimum and sell it at full price and people buy it. So, I guess if they can get away with it why would they spend more money on development. The Nintendo way!
The DS and 3DS are better than the Switch
It's mind boggling, especially after all the promises they made following the wii u era. They were talking about how they learned their lesson and it took them time to adjust to making games in HD, blah blah blah. The switch was supposed to be them getting it right. No more software trickle, no more excuses. Now they have the pandemic to blame, but the sorrys aren't the same without Iwata saying them. What the hell are all those 3DS teams up to?! They pumped hella 3DS games out. There's really no excuse for the slow flow of new games. Once they realized they could monetize their old wii u catalog, its been mostly rereleases one after the other.
Q1 have you heard of Zelda? Q2 have you heard of Zelda the re-released? Q3 we have an old Zelda. Q4 have you heard of Zelda exclusive features on Amibo? Q1 Zelda looks great on OLED Q2 No seriously 30 year old Zelda looks great on OLED, buy it now Q3 Remeber Advanced Wars? Q4 Buy Reggie's book and worship us
Have you all really have not noticed that almost all their games now have a DLC Pass? They done it with BoTW, Hyrule Warriors, AC, Pokemon. You know what those games have in common? They're all bare bone, barely any content. You can talk about the quality of Ninty games but they're milking it this gen hard, and releasing almost nothing in between.
Animal Crossing doesn't have a DLC pass. Also, I don't think any of the games they've released this year and only one game last year (Hyrule warriors) have DLC passes. That's a far cry from most of their games.
Lol at Breath of the Wild having "barely any content". Ummm, did you play it?! Im annoyed with the passes too, but to say theres barely any content is a pretty bold and downright ignorant claim.
If you wanna count 120 shrines of copy pasted content, 4 copy pasted blight fights, and a handful of flashback cutscenes, 60 dollars worth of content then yes I guess there's sooooo much to do. Not only did I play it, but I player nearly 200 hours of it, most of which was just exploring one of the most emptiest, and lifeless world in a game, exploring to see what little interesting things there was to see. And thats all there really is to do in BoTW, see cause it barely has content to play through, not even a story.
Steam deck troll incoming. Are you serious?
