Yeah, this is it. Nintendo doesn't really has any competition to make truly outstanding games anymore, Mario Odyssey and BOTW needed to be good just because Wii U failed miserably, and having killer apps for Switch at launch was the key to succeed. I don't think it's a coincidence that most of their games after 2017-2018 have been a bit forgettable or "corporate" like people here are saying, they just don't need to put lots of effort in a single game yet. Seems like this is already changing with Metroid 5 finally happening after 19 years, and the ambitious BOTW sequel officially slated for next year.

Idk about you guys, but I wouldn't count them "out" yet. They're clearly capable of doing comebacks when expectations are on the floor, so i'll just be optimistic, i'm sure they'll blow us again like they always do.
Excatly, as I said before
They need to reel it back in

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

I agree, some series like the Mario & Luigi, DK, Mario vs. DK games are all missing this Gen and not on the Switch..
Well for the M&L games, AlphaDream soon went bankrupt so no more of that i guess.
The thing is Wii U had some great titles to
I gotta disagree with Dinoh and you

For now, I'm confident that BOTW2 release will determine if they're still able to make a crack in the gaming landscape. Metroid 5 isn't being made by Nintendo themselves, so I don't think it's fair to label it as what's Nintendo capable of.

I won't say that's gonna determine it fully but don't get me wrong, its gonna be an important factor
However they have to remember other games need the same beauty as others

That's the thing though, Zelda is one of the highest budget franchises Nintendo currently has, the other ones being Mario, Super Smash Bros and Pokemon (Actually belongs to GF and The Pokemon Company, so I can't really judge them with this). You could say Animal Crossing counts as "high budget" as well, but it doesn't really looks like one.

If in some alternate universe one of these franchises didn't lived up to expectations, this is where we'll be worried, the rest of them will get better or worse over time.

Well if we look at it in a more statistical and marketing view, Zelda has become less popular over the last decade.
Only the SUPER fans are going pay attention to every little detail in BOTW2.
What about an average gamer
They would want a good that's fun, addicting, heartwarming, etc
However, the exterme Nintendo fans are gonna buy every Zelda game and they're gonna be the most judgemental

In that case, Mario should be the golden standard to judge them in an accurate manner. After all, MK8 Deluxe is still the highest selling game in Switch, and Odyssey was extremely well received at release, while also pulling some big numbers. Now, about Mario spinoffs...

Geez, they're being handled really badly these days, with some infamous names like Camelot and Intelligent Systems... Let alone M&L sudden death, and there's still no sequel in sight.
