The sentence you highlighted clearly states why the games would get ignored, so it's not rocket science for AAA publishers to figure out what they would have to improve.

Given what your response was, you are either convinced that there is no money to be made on Switch or you hope that you don't have to give a clear answer to that question.

Please stop trying to make it sound like I'm saying that there's no money to be made on Switch. I'm saying that the claim about "3rd parties hating Nintendo" is ridiculous. As I said initially, if there's money to be made, 3rd parties will come as we've seen with e.g. Activision (Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, Spyro: Reignited Trilogy), Bandai Namco (Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, Digimon Survive, Dragon Ball FighterZ), Capcom (Mega Man 11, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy), Epic (Fortnite), Sega (Sonic Mania, Team Sonic Racing, Puyo Puyo Tetris), Square Enix (Octopath Traveler, Dragon Quest XI S), Take-Two (Civilization VI), Ubisoft (Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Just Dance), and Warner (Scribblenauts Showdown, Lego City Undercover).

You claim that Switch owners ignore the 3rd party "loot box riddled" AAA titles but still complain that publishers aren't bringing them to Switch. You're basically calling 3rd parties biased against Nintendo for not wanting to change their business model regarding AAA titles. That's entitlement in its purest form.

I think he was more suggesting that companies like EA who are focused on Live services shit like Anthem have spent a great deal of the last 5 years trying to convince gamers that what we want to be playing is online social interaction always online ever changing type games with no single player element whatsoever, so then the Switch rolls around with Mario Ody and Breath of the Wild which are basically 2 massive middle fingers to the idea that a massive single player game can't be amazing and isn't exactly what millions of gamers are willing to throw money at, there was a time when the attach rate of breath of the wild was greater than 1:1 because while people couldn't get the system to play it... everyone wanted what is one of the best and biggest single player games of all times.

It would be better for companies like EA to keep their fans away from systems where options other than always online yearly purchased trash was in the minority alongside games which came out 2 years ago and are still pumping out great gameplay all this time, heck even in terms of online shooters, if you bought Splatoon 2 around Switch launch you could still be playing that game today and enjoying new free map and weapon packs which have been steadily dropping into the game over the last 24 months, it completely goes against a call of duty or battlefield where you could buy the game two years ago but if you didn't buy the season pass you would be completely outta the loop in terms of what type of game people have today.... if the servers for online were still even up given that when a sequel appears often those older titles are shut down and forgotten.
