Added 1 Third Party game (D)

Also, one of the 3rd Party games that I listed as (P) in my original list was Resident Evil Revelations Collection. Instead of 1 (P), should that have been 1 (P) & 1 (D) since there is a game card for Revelations and a digital code for Revelations 2? I didn't think of it at the time.

Yes, RER 1 and 2 are two separate games despite being sold as a collection. There's only one game on the card, the other one is obtained through a download code. The two games are also split on the digital side as there is no Collection to buy on the eShop.

An example of a true collection (at least I hope so) is the upcoming Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy where none of the games is sold individually. Such a collection would count as either one physical or one digital game, depending on how people buy the collection.

In general though, this nitpickery is first and foremost only important for your own personal stats, because in the grand scheme of things it's not going to have any notable impact. A dozen of incorrect data entries won't have a real influence when the sample size has grown to over 1,000 total games.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I don't think anyone is ignoring the fact that Nintendo licensed some of its IP to Ubisoft and Koei Tecmo for those games.  But it doesn't change the fact that they were created,  developed and published by third parties.   Now, that being said, I'm arguing a real world definition.  The "Switch Gamers Club" is your concept, and you are free to use a personal definition that is not in wide use if you so choose.   Which is why I listed those games per your rules.    

Nintendo obviously had creative input in all of those games. M+R and the like aren't like Rayman Legends with Mario and Luigi costumes for Rayman and Globox.

In the real world there will be no third party publisher who considers M+R and the like as third party games, i.e. any sort of indicator how well third party games sell on Switch.

You didn't answer whose game Project X-Zone is.

Because it wasn't relevant to a question of what constitutes a first or third party game.

And in the real world, I would expect Ubisoft, as a third party developer/publisher, considers M+R to be a third party game given they both developed and published it.  There is no shortage of other sources that agree.

More like because it's tricky and you know it. Project X-Zone's relevance to the argument is that IP collaborations aren't clean-cut affairs of whose game it is, because all involved companies have a stake in it and nothing can happen without everyone's consent.

M+R sales numbers are reported by Ubisoft, Mario & Sonic is reported by Sega, Hyrule/Fire Emblem Warriors by Koei-Tecmo, Pokken Tournament by Bandai-Namco. What's the common link between all of those collaborations? Everyone knows that the Nintendo IP is the main draw of the product. Nevermind that the line between first party and third party is very blurred to begin with, because Nintendo is the publisher of all aforementioned games in at least one region.

So when the question is what makes more sense for a first party + third party collaboration, categorize it as either a first party or third party game, the logical answer is first party. The games may be developed by third parties, but they are effectively first party games because they have just as low of a chance to be ported to a non-Nintendo console as any plain first party game.

Christ. You're one of those "must always be right, must always win" people, aren't you?

Fine, whatever. You win. You're the best.
