It's mainly shovelware and ports. Nothing to be proud of IMHO.
Quality > Quantity.
Why are you asking? You don't need me to create a list, do you?
I never said it has anything to do with 4k/60fps either.
There is not single best way to play multiplat games. People will have different preferences.
Does that mean no one else can prefer to game that way?
Just because a game is on Switch doesn't mean everyone would rather play it there.
I've never seen anyone try and play hollow knight on a laptop.
I'm not saying ALL people would prefer a laptop either.
At this point, I honestly don't even know what point you're trying to make with these comments about not liking using a laptop.
If not for the terrible port of Mercenaries Saga my Switch would be clean of any purchases since last year / January 2018.
You're trying to argue it's just as convenient/likely /plausible someone is going to lug their Windows tablet or laptop around to play a copy of Hollow Knight outdoors.
I'm sure there are some people who play it on their laptop at home, while in the washroom. Let's hope to god the laptop doesn't fall off their lap .
Just like Steam and the PS4 store, it's loaded up with shovelware and garbage. The Switch has a respectable indie catalog but nobody should be touting the overall number of titles on the store.
Switch is not a system for exclusives only like many of Nintendo's systems in the past, not with this big and varied library. it can very well be a main system for certain types of players. for indie games, I'd say Switch is the lead platform in the market right now.
and it has been available only for a year and half, it will end up with a huge library with titles of all kinds.
That's a LOT of shovelware, geez!
I'm sure there are some people who would rather own and play the game on their PC, including a laptop, than play it on Switch.
I don't understand how it is hard to fathom that there are people out there with different preferences than yourself.
Owning a Windows 10 tablet myself, comparing it to the switch is a bit of a joke.
Just said some people, like myself, feel no draw to purchase or play multiplats on switch.
Different people have different preferences.
Switch, for me, is an exclusives only platform. Doesn't mean it has to be for everyone.
You guys keep half reading my argument, then arguing something different.
Different people have different preferences. When someone says they can't find anything to play on Switch, that doesn't mean there is nothing to play on switch. That is all.
And ports are valuable as any other. The majority of those never appeared on a Nintendo platform in first place.
The indie games and 'ports' finding success on the Switch are 100% core games, and most are well deserved. This is why there is more and more release every week, most are trying to chase after that core market. So his reuse of an old Wii era talking point undermines whatever else he has to say.
People praise the 3DS's library a lot, but Nintendo 1P aside it was pretty poor compared to DS or PSP. Release frequency and genre variety also fell off a cliff. If you didn't like RPGs or MH, there was little to play from 3P after 2013.
A packaged software comparison would also be interesting
I wish someone made a "which of these titles are on the Switch eShop" webquiz.
*Megaman and Megaman X classic collections
Ok ,it was released less than a week before July ended, so it could explain NPD and it may very well sell consistently over the holidays, but It's absence on the eshop chart is the most telling.
I see there's now an attempt to shift the context to 'ports', but it's just a poor argument I think.
Switch is already my favorite console ever.
BOTW, Splatoon 2, Odyssey, Kart 8, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 are some of my personal favorite games, and the best in their franchises. With Smash, the inevitable Animal Crossing, and Pokemon 2019 coming out, I'll have pretty much all I need on a Nintendo console, with everything else just being bonus.
A shame so many of them are practically impossible to find unless you’re specifically looking for them.
Anyone know what’s the comparison to the Wii library?
Edit: Nevermind its in the OP.
Still, Steam has the most games of any platform but how many of those are worth a damn?
There are tons of games released weekly. The problem is it's rare I want to even put one on my wishlist, let alone buy one. It feels the same as going to the Android play store. In other words, I would feel the same if it had a billion games. Theres just so much trash, IMO. Switch store needs strong filters, suggestion algorithms, and curation at this point like the Steam store. Looking forward to Smash this year and maybe Xeno DLC. Mario Party as a rental.
