I've been debating buying a Pro Controller since I bought my Switch. In your opinion is it really worth the money?

I have had my Switch for over a year now. The Joycons were defective out of the box and I had to send them in for a free replacement. Ever since then I have not had any issues with them. I mostly play my Switch docked and used the Joycon cradle that came with the system. Occasionally I play it in portable mode when I just want to unwind and don't want to be bothered switching my HDMI cables. I have never taken my Switch outside and have no immediate plans to do so.

The reasons why I am hesitant to buy it is because A) It's expensive. B) I don't have anyone to play local multiplayer with. C) I am trying to avoid clutter in my living space.

Here are the games I have:

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe- Finished NSMBU. Still playing New Super Luigi U casually.

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild- Defeated Ganon and completed all main quests. Only finished about 40 shrines. Not sure if I will go back to this.

Bayonetta 2- Finished Bayonetta. Have not started Bayonetta 2. Playing with this Joycon controller was not great.

Super Mario Odyssey- Beat Bowser. Got maybe 250 or so Moons. Lots more Moons to collect, may return to this someday.

Super Mario 3D All Stars- Have not opened. The only game I haven't played in the collection is Sunshine. Might play it in 2022.

Ace Attorney HD Trilogy- Barely started. Will probably only play in portable mode.

Here are the Switch games I plan on buying in the future:

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The Word Ends With You Final Remix

Super Mario 3D World

Do any of these games benefit from the Pro Controller?
