    And I'm not against the indies at all - what would give you that impression? Hollow Knight on the Switch has been my gaming experience of the decade almost. :)

    But that's not something I'm expecting to have with a long line of indies, that's lightning in a bottle. What I'm still hoping for is the rejuvenated Starfox, Wave Race, 1080, F-Zero, and a selection of delightful surprises. That's the promise of switch. The indie stuff is supposed to be the icing on the cake, not the whole cake.

    Also let's remember what ultimately happened on every other platform: saturation, where ultimately it's just a handful of developers reaping the rewards and the rest getting scraps. So that's not really a gold standard to aspire to.

    The first year on Switch was fantastic. The best of any console I can remember. However, that's really impacted on year 2. They clearly bought projects forward to make that first year look impressive and have since been relying on ports to fill the void that has created.

    The final third of the year is looking up, though. For me, at least.

    Might not be great if you owned a Wii U but it makes sense for Nintendo to release those games again, they're all brilliant games that a lot of people with a Switch never played.

    There has been new Nintendo games this year, they're just not the games most people on here give a shit about. Kirby and Mario Tennis both came out in the first 6 months with Octopath in July and then you've got Mario Party, Pokemon and Smash in the last 3 months of the year.

    Out of that lot and the Wii U ports the only game for me is Octopath. I'd like more games I'm interested in but there is new stuff coming out.

    And Iím also not saying donít release WiiU remastered snot ports. Again: youíre describing icing on the cake, not cake. And theyíve nearly run out now anyway so what next? A Year 3 drought is OK because theyíve gone back further and remastered GC games? :)

    I'd actually love some remastered GC games, I'd be more interested in those than Wii U stuff. F Zero GX on the Switch would be wonderful.

    Absolutely, still wouldn't say no to some GC ports though.

    Yes! And I've just realised that VC4 is actually out next month (with a demo available on the eShop). And that's not even an indie!

    Just give me Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem and a Mario Golf, I'll be happy with that. I probably wouldn't play anything else for years. :)

    Oh, and throw in a new bloody Advance Wars too while you're at it.

    This. It's really the only dormant Nintendo franchise that I'm truly missing.

    I probably never would have played games like Hollow Knight if it weren't for the Switch. These days I have neither time nor inclination to finish dozens of hours worth of RPG on the couch. So I give zero shits about whether they're old, or indie, or whatever. I can play them, and that's what counts for me.

    More "AAA" games (however you define those) would be nice of course, but Nintendo always take ages to release their games. I've had the last couple of decades to get used to that. It doesn't really bother me anymore.

    (and it's totally fine if that bothers other people more, I can only speak for my experience)

    Like battered and bruised housewives you lot.

    I will throw off the abusive shackles of Nintendo's production policies!

    Meh, there's certainly a drought on the thing, particularly with AAA titles, but I'm still getting plenty of play out of the thing. Especially from Hollow Knight which is the best tenner I've spent all year.

    I think I'm the only person on this forum looking forward to Smash Bros at the end of the year, but that will keep it going for a while. Could definitely do with another Mario Golf game soon though.

    There are lots of games coming, but I know I'll end up getting them on some other platform because I don't wanna pay the portable tax.

    After a year and half, I was kind of hoping it wouldn't be a thing anymore.

    In fairness quite a few of the new releases are the same price on the Switch and other consoles (Overcooked 2 and Salt & Sanctuary from this week at a quick glance) so it looks like it's getting better.

    If they are going to resurrect it, would do Advance Wars or Batallion Wars on the Switch?

    Let's be honest.

    Tiny Metal is fucking shit.

    Excuse my French, but it is.

    I haven't touched my Switch since Mario Odessy released last year.

    I've tried to get back into Zelda but the game annoys me like a posh smug twelve year old at a dinner party.

    So IGN parted ways with the reviewer who ripped off parts of his Dead Cells review... What a strange story that was.
