3ds had metal gear 3
Super Street fighter 4
Resident evil mercenaries and revelations
All within the first year or so, it by no means had bad 3rd party support.
That said, Nintendo machines are very rarely remembered for their 3rd party offerings, it's normally the first party that sticks in people's heads for generations.
Switch had a few of those too: Rayman Legends and RE Revelations, and both of them enhanced and with more content.
Then there was also Skyrim, Star Dew Valley, Disgaea 5, Golf Story, NBA 2K18, Doom, Rocket League, Fire Emblem Warriors, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, Minecraft, World of Goo, Oxenfree, LA Noire. All in year 1
But then in Year 2: Civilization 6, Wolfenstein, Undertale, Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2, Bastion, Cities: Skylines, Okami HD, Hollow Knight, Ikaruga, Diablo 3, Dead Cells, Into the Breach, Katamari, Warframe, Valkyria Chronicles, Valkyria Chronicles 4, Dark Souls Remastered, Fortnite, South Park Fractured, South Park Stick of Truth.
And this year it's got Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9, X, and 12.
Also, something like 3000 other games.
Anyway, I'd give it to Switch if this is really the best 3DS can offer, and several times over.
Although Switch is not really a handheld, it's a hybrid. It has also been observed that the software and sales of software are more akin to that seen on Home Consoles rather than handhelds. That is why you're seeing the more home-console-like lineup on Switch.
I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
