He's using Labo as an example to support the OP

Ah, since he only used the single word it was hard to infer which way he meant it, and since Labo is generally viewed as pure evil by a lot of forumgoers, I guessed he meant it the other way.

Actually ... I guess I don't entirely know for sure either. I just assumed he meant it to support OP. Would be funny if my correction was wrong

While there are some good ones, most third party games on Switch are of poor quality.

I wouldn't go as far as say most are poor quality, just that most aren't the type of games that get huge sales. Up to this point the 3rd party lineup consists mostly of indies, niche Japanese titles & late ports/remasters. These arent poor quality, just not typically huge sellers.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

I meant in relation to Nintendo's games, I mean what third party games on Switch are on the level of Breath of the Wild or Mario Odyssey? Heck, there are few I'd even consider in the same league as Splatoon 2 or Xenoblade 2.



Nintendo fans playing the victim on this site? Lmao you can't make this stuff up folks.

Not true

I never bought a single Metroid, Pikmin, F-Zero or Animal Crossing.


Those are bottom tier games for me.

Historically my nintendo x 3rd party ratio is about 70-30, switch is a bit different however because Im buying more games these days and nintendo games are finite. Nintendo has built a real trust with me, Im happy to pay $80 on a whim if its a nintendo handled game because I know it will be a quality product and most importantly; enjoyable. I get burnt time and time again by 3rd party devs due to things like: incomplete testing, a difference in mainstream/personal taste, lazy developing, industry trends (clones) and as a Nintendo gamer, shit ports with no soul and lacking basic features. That said, there are so many 3rd party gems these days but nintendo is just the safer bet for me.

Agree, it's only fine when Sony fans do it



The good ol' "to combat your baseless generalization I will baselessly generalize you" tactic. Classic.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

The thing is that Nintendo games are actually not universally loved. If they were, Nintendo consoles would have been consistently selling like Sony consoles over the last few generations. Instead, they've had a pretty rough ride until the Switch came along and that's probably due to the improved third party support this time around. They need that, or they need a gimmick like the Wii was or the portability that the Switch offers. Their own games just aren't enough, no matter if their fans gobble them up or not, and I believe that this is true for the other two big players as well. This isn't the eighties where Nintendo seemed to be the only viable choice because there wasn't really anyone else doing what they were doing. People have options now and you have to deliver a complete package.
