It's starting to look pretty nice on the rpg front. And I think it's off to a better start than the 3DS, so that's promising.
I hope they bring Persona 5 to Switch as well. That game deserves to be played by more people. And I'm sure it would sell really well. Especially if it has extra content, like Persona 4: Golden.

I'm curious what your thought process was here?
Should Jrpgfan not have listed the PS4 titles that are also on Switch? I'm asking because you didn't mention that most of the Switch games on the list he quoted are also on PS4.
If he had crossed them out, it would have looked like this:

Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna
Octopath Traveler
Pokemon Let's Go
Pokemon Gen 8
Fire Emblem Three Houses
Grandia Remastered
Shin Megami Tensei 5

If Jrpgfan had done that, or pointed out that "Most of those Switch games are also on PS4", then I would understand your comment.
But the way you replied, it looks like you're either not aware that most of the games on the Switch list were also on PS4, or that you only think the multi-platform aspect should be mentioned for one side of the list, and not the other. Or were you thinking something else?

Valkyria Chronicles: Remastered
Digimon Survive

I was going to say Persona Q2 as well, but then I remembered it's for 3DS.

You’re overthinking it.

He made a list of PS4 games, using it to demonstrate the Switch has a long way to go to match the library on PS4. I informed him that many games on the PS4 list are or will soon be on the Switch list, demonstrating the gap is not as wide as the long list would suggest.

I understand why you pointed out that many of the games are also on Switch. But not why you didn't mention that most of the games on the Switch list were also on PS4.
If your response was because you thought he portrayed the gap as more wide than it really was, why did you make a comment that demonstrated a gap that is more narrow than your comment would suggest? Because that would just prompt someone to inform you of the same thing.

The difference is he kept things consistent on both sides, while you only excluded multiplatform titles from PS4's side of the list.

Also, I would challenge your idea that a multiplatform inclusive list makes the gap look more wide than if the lists were only comprised of exclusives.
I'm pretty sure it's the other way around.
