I finally added an OLED switch to my stable of systems. Bought it during this particular week of the 14th - 20th and picked it up on the 24th. So I had a pretty good thanksgiving playing some games against my kids (on their switches). Curious to see what the BF numbers will be when VGC reports them next week (or later this week).

Bought an Switch OLED as well. Been wanting a Switch for a while. To Switch gamers, any recommendations? Enjoying Octopath Traveler atm but not sure how long that will last.

Got to say, the Switch does feel a bit outdated. Loading times are atrocious compared to PS5. Love the handheld aspect though.

My personal top ten recommendations are: Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Luigis Mansion 3, Metroid Dread, Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Astral Chain, Monster Hunter Rise, Dragon Quest XI S and Mario + Rabbids. I'm currently playing SMT V and that's a fantastic game as well.

Hopefully this helps!

Thanks, appreciate the recommendations. Are any of them pretty easy to get into? I tend to like games that are fun right away and not those that get fun 4-5 hours in (with a few exceptions).

If you want suggestions then you're asking the right person. Hold onto your butts.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 takes a while to get into, but once you do you'll really love it. It's my most played Switch game.

Dragon Quest XI S also takes a bit of time. If you don't want to spend the money you can play a 10 hour demo from the eshop. If you like it then the save transfers over. If not, no foul.

Astral Chain doesn't take long to get into, but it has a pretty complex battle system so there are quite a few tutorials.

Everything else on the list I feel are perfectly pick up and enjoyable. Especially Super Mario Odyssey.

Hard to have an SSD in a portable device.

iplay1up256d ago

Smash Bros Ultimate, MK8, Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, Metroid Dread. All easy to pick up and play.

barom56d ago

Thanks everyone! Will be on the lookout for these games.

Just picked up mine at Best Buy today. Loving it so far.

Switch closing in on 100 million units sold.

NeoGamer23257d ago

Switch is going for sure. Not long before it puts PS4 in its driver's mirror. Then it is going after the biggest sellers of all time. Has a good possibility it will pass PS2.

Rhythmattic56d ago

So did a phone that is still made.

DefenderOfDoom257d ago

Is this a rumor ? Funny that VG Chartz articles are always listed at N4g as rumor. . But really good to see all consoles selling a lot.

n1kki657d ago

It's because they don't cite any sources for their data.

CrimsonWing6957d ago

Google why you should trust VGchartz as far as you can throw them.

darthv7257d ago

All sales related articles that are generalized and not specifically from a platform/mfg source is considered a rumor. That has always been the case.

Eonjay57d ago

Its a rumor because the numbers are estimations. The method they use to create these guesses is not public knowledge and has been disproven by everyone, most famously by Microsoft themselves who stated that the had more 360 sales than Microsoft had actually shipped. They were off by millions when Microsoft actually reported numbers. So now its just whatever. For Sony and Nintendo, they do report numbers so VGChartz can issue corrections.

barom57d ago

Yeah they're a best guess at best and shouldn't be taken seriously. Their numbers been off by significant amount many times. They attempt to correct it whenever they get real numbers but that's about the only time they get it right.

I think this sales show us how short is the supply of consoles. It also smash that marketing "news" about which console sold more....

Orchard57d ago

That article referred to black Friday… the article above is for Nov 14-20. Nothing is smashed.

darkrider57d ago (Edited 57d ago )

Don't be in denial. The other news about games sold it also funny. The top 10 games sold. I see a racer on top but it's from Nintendo... Isn't that from black Friday...

darthv7257d ago

reading comprehension is not one of rider's strong points. Everyone else can see this relates to the week before BF.

Orchard57d ago (Edited 57d ago )

@darkrider Dang you are right, the President moved Thanksgiving and I didn't even realize! /s 😂

Perhaps you should read articles, or at least the title, before commenting? Now you look silly.

"The other news about games sold it also funny"

You mean the article that covers PHYSICAL sales in the UK only... a country that doesn't really celebrate Thanksgiving... so a very small segment of the market? 😂

But I do apologize for letting little things like facts get in the way of your point.

@darthv72 Yeah... apparently it is not his strongest suite.

At this rate the switch could break 100 mil by the end of the year. These aren’t even Black Friday nor cyber Monday sales figures.
