Thunk ive played a total of about 250 hours on my switch in 2 years so yeah not great. Kids have done about 5 million each though so all good. Right now im more into my super flashy cinematic plot heavy games like Hellblade, Horizon and God of War. Also played alot of No Honour last month cos was free on PSplus and then started Mafia 3. Oh and still got three tomb raider games waiting OG ( not really OG) rise and Shadow whew. Buuuut I have just started Bayonetta and loving and plan to finish Bayo 2 aswell while the Mrs hogs PS4 smashing out Rise of the Tomb Raider.

I play my ps4 and switch about equally for now. My xbox one I usually only play if there's a new game with gold I like or replaying my 360 games via backward compatibility

Just out of curiosity, what type of games on Vita were keeping you so busy for those years?

The Danganronpas, metal gear solid HD collection, wipeout, madden, fifa, odin sphere, Assassin's Creed, super stardust, the final fantasy games that like X, X-2, and World of Final Fantasy, Tales of Hearts, and Trails of Cold Steel I & II. Every once in a while I would dabble in persona. Even minecraft. I already had an entire compound built up on my vita, but I wasn't about to start from scratch, yet again on my Switch. I ended up with like 30-40 hard copies of Vita games after years of picking up random games, mostly for cheap.
And that's not to say they were all good. I couldn't get into Gravity Rush at all, nor did I like Borderlands 2 or Black Ops: Declassified, and Freedom Wars got old very quickly. I have hard copies of all of them, but I don't think I'll ever crack open those cases again. I even got one of those japanese girl fighting games to try (Sengan Kagura I think). The icon was a girl's ass in panties. Super cringe.

To be honest, I think a big part of that was Playstation Plus. Every month I had two games to at least try for no additional cost, so there was always something new to try. Even if I only spent like an hour playign it before I got bored of it, it was still new. But every once in a while there was something like Helldivers or Sine More that I didn't put down for weeks. Besides that I got games like Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Wipeout, Need for Speed, Sly Cooper, and so many more top tier Vita titles for no upfront cost, ready to download whenever I like. Then there was all of the PS1 classics I played my formative gaming years playing that I got mostly when I played PSP and PS3, and even PSP digital games were solid on Vita. To this day there's no portable hockey experience better than NHL 07 for PSP on Vita.

And maybe that's one of my biggest problems. So many of those great indie/third party games that are out/coming to the Switch I've already played and owned on my Vita or PS3 or PS4. I don't feel any need to go back and start many of these games again, and if I did, I certainly don't feel like paying money for a game I already got for "free" on PS+. I'd just break out the Vita instead.

Gotcha, i was always interested in getting a PSP & Vita when they were on the market but for some reason I just never pulled the trigger.

The switch has been totally ruined for me.
1st year I played and beat Zelda and Super Mario Odyssey and had a great time playing it. I had about 100 hours on the switch with these 2 games. Then the great game drought of 2018 came and I didnt turn on my switch between from January 2018 to October of 2018.  Then Super Mario party came out. I go to turn it on and nothing. Tried everything online and couldnt get it to charge or turn on. I sent it to Nintendo, paid $110 to have it fixed. When I get my switch back I lost all my save data, so I will never go back to try and get the few remaining moons in mario odyssey or more shrines in zelda because I would have to start from scratch. I finally fire up Super Mario Party and there are only 4 maps and none of them are fun to me and I don't like the Ally system, so the game doesn't have any replay value for me. My experience with the switch has been very disappointing. I fire up my xbox one all the time for a game of halo (only game I have on xbox one) or to watch netflix.

tldr switch has no replay value for me.



Been playing my PS4 a lot more lately, once Yoshi comes I'll be back on Switch. Will also be playing Switch more once the other big hitters (Zelda, Pokemon, Mario Maker) hit.

I prefer RPGs and their variants pretty much exclusively on consoles. I play 4x games on my PC. One of the reasons I have not bought a nintendo console is such a long time is because good RPGs are few and far between or way late to the party.



A warrior keeps death on the mind from the moment of his first breath to the moment of his last.



I think I last played on mine last summer, when Octopath Traveler came out. Played quite a bit of that for a couple of weeks and then simply haven't returned. I never expected to have a huge Switch collection, but I'm still a bit disappointed in the library besides the obviously awesome 1st party titles which I already own.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Not sure if you meant to quote me but I have plenty to play on my Switch, probably about 40 games or so and dozens that I dont own but am interested in.

Sorry to hear OP. Not all system is for everyone.

And my feelings @potato_hamster

Funny to see so many defensive posts or need to say another platform is less used by someone as if he was attacking the system instead of just saying why he is using it less than he want.
