Bought Doom and WWE 2K18. Last two 3rd party games I'll be buying. I can get a better portable expereince via Remote Play on Vita. So I will be continuing to play 3rd party on PlayStation, even when I am intending to play around the house or on the go.

Nintendo has knocked it out of the park with the 1st party titles I have played, in both docked and portable mode. So I will continue to enjoy Switch for what it is good at.

3rd parties are actually pretty good on the switch. Dragonball Xenoverse 2 will probably sell a million by years end. Resident Evil has sold nearly 300k probably more by now, Fifa has been a success, Bethesda is pleased with the sales they got for Skyrim and Doom. Stardew Valley is a million seller. Fast Rmx has sold over 500k. There are a lot of success stories on the Switch. Just because they aren't lighting up the charts doesn't mean they aren't selling. Lets not forget that Capcom brags about USF2 every investor meeting about how big of a hit it is and it isn't on any chart.



Games are fun.

aside from that I own:

1, I Am Setsuna
2. Disgaea 5 Complete
3. Skyrim
4. USF2
5. Street Fighter Anniversary
6. Fate/Extella
7. Xenoverse 2
8. Doom
9. LA Noire
10. Sonic Mania
11. Sonic Forces
12. Nights Of Azure 2
13. NBA 2K18
14. Resident Evil Revelations Collection

10, most of them being indie titles, but Disgaea 5 Complete, Rocket League and Super Bomberman R are more in the A/AA category.

And while Disgaea is the physical version, all other games are digital versions, plus some demos - and I still have some free space on the Switch without using an SD card.

Edit: How could I forget to mention my physical copy of Just Dance 2018???

None, I got Splatoon 2 and XC2. Haven't played either in MONTHS. Poor dusty switch....



OP, you've forgot the "zero" option in your poll. Haven't bought any since I play them on PS4 and Vita.

And yes, Switch versions generally don't get much attention since most people would get those games on Playstation or Xbox.

Those aren't 3rd party games.

That is not necessarily true in a lot of cases. There have been a number of indie developers that have touted the Switch version of their game either being the best selling or comparable to other releases. Beyond that games in the Lego series, Rayman Legends, Sonic Forces, L.A Noire have sold on par with (at least with Xbox) or in some cases more than their PS4/XOne counterparts. On the other hand, sports games underperform on Switch, and full priced late ports in most cases also sell less than their Xbox/PS counterparts. I think the big issue with third-parties and the Switch largely has to do with the powergap; the Switch is essence is a portable console with mobile components, whereas its stationary counterparts have fairly PC-like architectures with similar enough specifications. Porting a game to Switch, which in some cases is not feasible at all, requires a lot more effort and resources.

This is slightly off topic, but I am surprised you own a Switch. I would have thought you would be the last person on the planet to purchase one. I am curious as to what game tipped you over into purchasing one?



I own over 90. Switch is my primary gaming platform, so naturally that is where I buy most of my games.
