Seems like on the quartely report over 40% of the revenue on SW were from third parties, which is quite high on Nintendo platform.

So that means that 60% of their revenue came from a dozen or so games vs hundreds if not over a thousand third party games. Like seriously list third party games that have sold over a million copies on Switch. There's Mincraft, Skyrim, Octopath Traveller... and that's it according to VGChartz. Now I know they don't count digital sales, but in honestly there can't be more than what? 6-8 games?

In all seriousness, the only growth I'm seeing in third party sales in the Switch is in small indie titles, and while that's a great thing, no one is going out and buying Switch to play Golf Story the same way they're buying a Switch to play Smash Bros.

Even if this is nit-picking, you left out a couple of titles that this site does clearly lists as million sellers.

According to VGChartz:
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (1.11m)
Fifa 18 (1.10m)

There was also a report recently that 20 Switch titles sold over a million copies each in just the 9 month period of April-December 2018, and that 8 of those were 3rd Party games.

This made me curious how many Xbox One 3rd party games were million sellers in less than its first 2 years on the market (November 2013 - September 2015) and came up with this general list:

Grand Theft Auto V
Call of Duty Advanced Warfare
Assassin's Creed Unity
Destiny
Fifa 16
Titanfall
Call of Duty:  Ghosts
Fifa 15
Battlefield 4
Mortal Kombat X
NBA 2K15
The Witcher 3:  The Wild Hunt
Watch Dogs
Madden NFL 15
Batman: Arkham Knight
Middle Earth:  Shadow of Mordor
The Elder Scrolls Online:  Tamriel Unlimited 
Fifa 14
Battlefield:  Hardline
Lego Marvel Super Heroes
Diablo III
Rise of the Tomb Raider

That's 22 titles assuming all 22 games sold over a million units during the comparative time frame (first 22 months), including the games that released in the cut-off month of September 2015.
