I can't believe there's not a thread about this yet.

I remember when Switch was unveiled many people thought it was going to fail miserably. After all, it was just launching with BotW (which was also coming for Wii U), and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (which was also on Wii U). The launch was a little shaky hardwarewise. There were reports of drifting joycons, hairline fractures on the back of the console, and docks scratching screens. 2017 delivered a fantastic lineup of games including Odyssey, Xenoblade 2, and the surprisingly good Mario X Rabbids. 2018 was a bit of a slow year in terms of quality games, but then 2019 dropped a massive amount of good games on us to make up for it. 2020 was also a slow year in terms of quality games from Nintendo, but definitely not in terms of quality 3rd party releases. 2021 has an absolutely stacked year of 3rd party releases for Switch including Bravely Default II, No More Heroes III, Ryza 2, Monster Hunter Rise, Monster Hunter Stories 2, SMTV, Rune Factory 5, and Disgaea 6. Japanese 3rd party studios have come out of the woodwork to support Switch and it shows! With it's portability Switch has become the premier console for Indie games. Many Indie games launch on just PC and Switch simultaneously, because that is where the money is at right now. When Switch launched many called it underpowered, but ports like Witcher 3, and Doom proved those naysayers wrong!

I bought nearly every Wii U game I could think was worth getting and still only wound up with 13 Wii U games. I did the same for Switch and am well over 100 games.

Anyway, what do you think of the consoles first four years? What are your favorite games on the system?
