Alright, updated to Animegaming's post. We have three new members, so welcome Cerebral, coolharry and irstupid.

34 new games, bringing us to a total of 899. So the next piece of shovelware Talonman or Ganoncrotch reports will be title #900.

Sounds pretty salty this? The reason there is 2400 different games on the Switch now is because there are people who buy games other than call of duty and yearly Fifa Shit, if you wanna give grief because this month I'm enjoying just finishing Bertram Fiddle Ep 1, Having filthy tit fun in Senran Beach Ball or the crazy open world Rogue space shooter Everspace I don't really share a love of just buying AAA titles from EA/Ubisoft who's main focus is on how they can sell you a 60e title filled with micro transactions and completely devoid of any innovation or fresh ideas.

To be honest I keep track of my games purchased for myself and copy pasting the Switch purchases onto here was just enjoyable because it fitted the format of this thread, already bought 9 games this month at the cost of around 200e into the eshop, if there's anyone else about who supports the system more than me I would take them having a go at my games purchased (TalonMan) otherwise, I would advise sitting back and being grateful that there are people who spend enough in the eshop to insure many games (both good and bad) get ported to the Switch because there are sugar daddies on the system who'll likely buy and play those titles.

Genuinely as well... a game doesn't have to cost 60e to be great, some of those eshop titles from 5-10e are some of the best pick up and play games which I've enjoyed in years, and AA (or less) titles like HollowKnight, Rocket League and Stardew Valley are probably some of the best of all times.

What's the median amount of 3rd party games from VGC members? 20 games or something like that?

somewhere around the 245 mark I think?

Well, there are 167 members who have posted their 3rd party game lists, so the median would be the 83rd/84th ranked member.  Those members have 14 3rd party games, so that's your median.

median does indeed mean he exact middle number of games. this user probably meant the average, at a glance there is a total of around 4,420 games owned by the 167 members of this thread so.... average is 26.5 games per member, but always remember that's a very small sample size and it's based on the buying habbits of enthusiast gamers who go on a gaming forum.

It wasn't meant to come off as salty, but more tongue in cheek given probably a quarter to a third of the entire list is games that only one or both of you two have bought.  There are definitely a lot of a great little games on the system.  One of the interesting things about compiling this list is seeing those titles emerge in the numbers.

By my count, there are 4397 entries in the database, and 167 members.  So the mean is just over 26 games per member. Though tsogud is going to bring that up when I update the count for July.

The median of the game count is actually 2 as about 550 out of 899 games are owned by only one or two people.  The mode, consequently, is 1.

The median user owns 14 games. 



Small bit of bonus data: I've been doing this for a year already.  Here's the top 20 from July 2018 to June 2019: 

# Title Count
1 Octopath Traveler 45
2 Hollow Knight 42
3 Fortnite 35
4 Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy 34
5 Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle 30
6 Fallout Shelter 23
7 Starlink: Battle for Atlas 23
8 Okami HD 21
9 Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 19
10 Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana 19
11 Dark Souls: Remastered 18
12 Wolfenstein II 18
13 Paladins 17
14 Sonic Mania 17
15 Bayonetta 16
16 Tetris 99 16
17 Diablo III 15
18 Golf Story 15
19 Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 15
20 Steamworld Dig 2 15

Skyrim is one of many games that just missed out, being at 14 for the last year.

Hey I just done a run down through the numbers on the front page and got 4420! being out by 23 I'm pretty damn proud of, I'm off to join a "count the beans" competition.... or remake Rainman

I guess me and Talon being the sole owner of a great number of titles could be for one big reason... between me and Talon we own 1/8th of that 4k games.

Also for anyone considering buying the Senran game this month, the Pinball title, if you're on the fence about buying that for 40e guys.... honestly I might hold off for a discount, especially considering the game has just 2 tables and really only one of those is feature complete, the game is going to be full of DLC in about 6 months and in 12 months there will no doubt be a complete edition of this title, otherwise you're getting about 10ish hours of silly story and pinball without online leaderboards for 40e unless you really just want to support the beautiful Senran series on the Switch I would advise holding off for a discount maybe.

Damn, 6 titles in the top 20 that I don't own.... one of them being the Number 1 contender, I have played the Demo / intro to the game but honestly... it didn't hook me in.

Rabbits / Dark Souls / YsVIII not my thing

Diablo III and Wolfenstein completely are my thing... but given their size and availability on other systems far cheaper... I've been holding off on them, I could definitely see myself getting Wolfenstein on cart if I can find it on offer so as to avoid some of the massive install size that title requires. Even having a 400GB Micro SD card I can't be gifting away 30GB to a title I might not get into right away.
