    Go go Switch games!!! ok..

    +1 for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (must have, even if you have MK8 on the wiiu don't care what anyone says!)

    +1 for Zelda Breath of Wild (got to have it just for the enjoyment of getting lost and not having a clue what to do next!)

    +1 for Arms (really cool, just like MK8D for fun factor)

    +1 for Snipperclips (that's one cool ass game! and really frustrating fun.)

    also its never too late for this kind of thread, the wiiu had one within weeks of release!!

    I updated the thread with the new votes.

    Also, everybody who says it's too early, I couldn't think you're more wrong. I figure that this list will help people realize there are more games than Botw and MK8D on the Switch.

    Plus I just wanted to sneak it in there to have an important thread for once.

    Well, there are games for the Switch but that's if you're willing to buy eShop/NeoGeo games from it. IMO, the Switch is extremely bare-bones right now and only around 2018 is when it'll have a decent library of games.

    Can't wait for Mario Odyssey.

    Yeah, that what "Eshop Exclusive" means. But $10 is easy a no brainer buy, with free dlc. GUNVOLT EROKO SHANTAE AND SHOVEL KNIGHT FREE DLC!? :wub:

    Meh. Are 3DS cards cheaper to make?

    Well you tell me, is there reason why 3DS game still $30-$40? :P

    I don't think it has anything to do with the cart production, just the devs don't have a publisher. Azure striker gunvolt striker pack is a compilation game of the first 2 games in the series priced at $15 While the published Cart for 3DS is $30 and published by Yacht club games (Shovel Knight developers) The game also includes a Shovel Knight exclusive amiibo feature where you can fight him. :P

    If they found a publisher for the game, is still the fact the game is $10, is not meant to be a A+ title quality, but a small budget project. There would need to include some extra swag merchandise to compensate buying a $10 game on retail (Much like UNDERTALE Psvita ps4 port has) Comparing both this game and undertale, it much the same situation, both are $10 games, and retail purchase without any goodies for about $30-40 wouldn't do well.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I respect this opinion. Yeah there is some business of not knowing some good games on the system, but most people just look at retail games and get this conclusion, always ignoring the download digital only games. Most people don't consider digital purchases a high quality game when is wrong. I admit some indie titles are... questionable, but most are legit. I did review of blaster master zero and Mighty Gunvolt burst for the switch to show people there is quality indie games out there people has been begging for all these years and when one shows up in their face for very low price with free dlc, hardly no one turns to see it. $10 for a good game that (I suppose is good for few hours or days maybe depends on the person) is better than $60 for a lazy game port or game that didn't even have good development for your money worth.

    It might have the opposite effect. MK8D and BOTW, so far, are ahead of everything else by a good margin.

    +1 for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. This game's beautiful and lots of fun, even if it doesn't break any new grounds. It also has great soundtrack.

    +1 for Breath of the Wild. Let's not kid ourselves, it's a must-have.

    +1 for Mario Kart 8 DX. As far as racing goes, this is top-notch. It's also Switch's best multiplayer (unless ARMS surpasses it, but I don't have it yet, so I wouldn't know).

    Added the new votes. Also, there is no need to give me genres. I'll just find them in google

    I see you have 2+ votes for Snipperclips on your op. I thought I was the only one that had voted on that game so far, unless you put a sneaky one in yourself I'm not bothered, more the better just wandering where the other vote came from? a ghost maybe? a great intuitive game though regardless, deserves many more votes!

    the 3ds one came out years ago at the same time the ps4,xbo1 and wiiu phisical releases were made so its unlikely they make yet another phisical release.
