Id be more of a critic and say that there are but a few really worthy games. Especially for the start.

1.Splatoon 2
2.Mario Kart
3.Mario Odyssey

Well recommend? I only have
  • Azure striker gunvolt striker pack
  • Puyo Puyo Tetris
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 2
  • Sonic mania
  • ultra Street Fighter 2
  • Shovel Knight
  • Blaster Master Zero
  • Mighty Gunvolt Burst
And one other I prefer not to name cause I don't recommend it.

Other than that, out of Ultra street fighter 2 I do recommend it. You better saving your money for this. Ultra Street Fighter 2 is a overpriced disappointment for what is worth and only for nostalgia of old and new. Street Fighter 30 anniversary is worth the $40 even if some of the games are just revisions, it does feature more to the player.




Honestly some of the games I am trying to secure myself but haven't due to pricing.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe $60 (Port)
Arms $60 (doesn't seem complete or maybe worth it)
Splatoon 2 (just not sure about this one personally)
Most of the other games I probably will ignore due
  • Pricing between switch adding $10 compared to other systems
  • Games requiring a SD card to even play (regardless of buying retail cart or downloading from eshop)
  • Ports not offering something extra (In conjunction with next line)
  • Ports costing more (in conjunction with previous line)
Of course is just personal to be honest. If mario Kart 8 deluxe was $40, I would have bought it already, quite frankly i don't like the idea of all these "3RD PARTY" companies shoveling ports on to switch that they probably could have made for wii u the whole time. Resident Evil Revelations was on WII U, why not the second one? Most of the games just look like it could have been on wii u anyway, most of the switch games doesn't even look like is much improved compared to the wii u game, with the only difference being maybe the better FPS and higher resolution.:glare:

Wonderboy The Dragons Trap is one of the best "metroidvanias" and action platformer on the system. I quoted metroidvania since while it is open for you to explore it's a pretty small world.

These are the only games that are worth it, in my opinion:
  1. Breath of the Wild (if you don't have a Wii U)
  2. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (if you don't have a Wii U)
  3. Splatoon 2 (if you plan on paying for online play)
  4. Super Mario Odyssey (if you're okay with updating past 3.0.0)

My only switch game is Mario odyssey. This Is the only game I care about. Zelda and Mario Kart I already have on the Wii u. In 2018 I will get 2 more games. The new Kirby and Yoshi games. I also like the game blaster master zero but I also already have it on the 3ds.

Just to add to the Tally. Xenoblade Chronicles 2.. Puyo Puyo Tetris if you're into that type of game. Doom for shooters. Spla2n is alright. Just picked it up today In a buy 2 get 1 free. Blaster Master Zero for a nice retro game. Gunvolt if you're big into Megaman style games.

If you're buying new games like XC2 and Mario Odyssey, there's no reason to get a 3.0.0 Switch if you plan on using those games with it.
