Forums - Nintendo Discussion - The Switch is worth every penny.

Bought a switch back in may or so. Played the hell out of Mario Kart and Zelda: BoTW. Then repurchased Disgaea for Switch. At that point it felt that the switch was worth the purchase. Within 2-3 months. 

I had been gone for almost 2 months doing training (Army Officer) and came back to Mario Odyssey being released. Dear lord... that game is awesome. I have played it for hours. My 6 year old has too...

Nintendo has outdone themselves. I have never seen a 1st party do what Nintendo has in 2017.

Thank you. My faith in Nintendo is 100% back. It definitely faltered with the WiiU.... but dear god what a comeback.

 

P.S. Mario Odyssey is insanely fun.

Pick up Doom. The game looks a lot better than I was expecting. Plays great too!



I feel the same. The Switch's games are so much better than the Wii U's. It is also much better than most 3DS games as well. However what makes the system to awesome is the wide variety it has already. If I want to play an RPG I can go to Disgaea. If I want a 3D platformer then I go to Mario. If I want a shooter then I go to Splatoon 2. I don't think it matches the diversity of the DS quite yet. It has ways to go but this is a stellar start.

The Switch also feels like a greatest hits system. All the franchises that are coming on the system are based on whatever their most influential game was.. Breath of the Wild is based on the NES game. Mario Odyssey is based on Mario 64. Xenoblade 2 is based on well Xenoblade 1. Kirby is based on Super Star. Debatably the best Mario Kart is on there however that is a port. Splatoon 2 is a sequel to the freshest game on the Wii U. It feels like all these games will be seen as best in their respective series. Even Sonic did this with Sonic Mania!

Honestly I do not think we have seen even 10% of what Nintendo has in store. If Nintendo supports this thing for 6 years or hell even more than that this system will be on par with Nintendo's greatest systems.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

It's actually crazy how many games I have on the Switch yet I'm not comfortable saying definitively it is "worth it". I mean, it probably is, but I find myself stepping away from it a lot of times. Maybe just too many game releases this year, it's made me really indecisive about what I should play first. Plus I have problems with the games I've played on it, indie or otherwise. Great console, though.

I still need to get more games, I still only have Mario Kart. I'm waiting for some good jrpgs before I fire her back up again :)

Oh yes it is, also with the Wii U(for me), only thing is the Switch is gonna(or already is) be a better console than the Wii U.

ya that is how I feel. The switch is already a better purchase after 6 months than the WiiU was lifetime (for me). Zelda was sublime. Disgaea was better than the PS4 version (love the PS4 version at that).  But Mario Oddessy is what sent it to the next level for me.

I've only played BotW and SMO on it and it was worth every penny. Nintendo should have just released a console only version though, I never use the handheld mode and it only makes it more awkward to connect to a different tv.



Feeling the same way. Been able to actually play more games due to the portability, and the graphics in handheld mode are just mind-blowing. Who figured it would be Nintendo that would finally bring out the full potential of those mobile Tegra chips everyone's been hyping up for so long?



They should release a cheaper docked only console I'd never buy this to take on the go I think that aspect is ridiculous imo

I really want mario oddesey and zelda
