    Welcome to Nintendo Switch Retail Games Essentials! This is where you can support your favorite game(s) and recommend them to others. This provides a list to those looking for a new game, or for people who just bought the Switch. Let's have some rules!
    1. Do not vote for unreleased games! These votes will be disregarded, as well as any other votes in the same post. I will also carefully look at the rest of your posts. This is just common sense, hence why it is rule #1!
    2. Separate your games by release medium! This means don't list NEOGEO games with Breath of the Wild. Separate your eShop exclusives from Retail games.
    3. Don't vote for the same game twice! I will try my best to monitor who votes for what games, but I cannot promise I will keep it 100% accurate. Please keep track of your votes, and make sure to let me know if somebody double voted. (I won't take it too hard if you double vote, unless it is recurring)
    4. Stay on-topic! This is supposed to be a list of games that we as a community would recommend. Don't debate whether or not Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a lazy port (Just an example) here, there are other places to do that. If you really want to argue, there is the shoutbox, IRC, or PMs.
    5. You cannot downvote games! If you don't like a game, don't vote for it. It's as simple as that. You can, however, cancel your vote for a game as long as you quote the original vote. (You cannot cancel others' votes.)
    6. Include the full title of the game! Don't vote for a game titling it: "Mario". There is Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. I don't know what you are referring too.

    Simple, right?

    Woah guys! I will add these when I get back from horseback riding

    1. I will not limit the number of submissions in a single post.
    2. What does ACA mean?
     
  15. All those rules just seem kind of unnecessary for something that should be as simple as posting one's opinions.

    Retail
    • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
    • Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
    • Disgaea 5: Complete
    • Puyo Puyo Tetris

    Retail games I've pre-ordered for 2017 - Battle Chasers Nightwar, Binding of Isaac (the European release is coming out on Sept), Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade 2. In 2018, The Last Sphear, Kirby, Yoshi and hopefully others (like, quality third party games).

    eShop
    • Blaster Master Zero
    • FAST Racing NEO (FAST RMX)
    ^ I don't own these eShop games on the Switch but have played BMZ's demo and own FRN on WiiU (retail).
