Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Well done, Nintendo fans!

Hey guys (and gals)!

I just thought I'd tell you all, Great Job!  You really helped get this Switch party started right.  Now I'm sure that some of you will come in here and say the reason for the success of the Switch is that Nintendo actually made a decent piece of hardware and backed it with good games, but we can't forget to give credit where it's due.  To the consumer.  That's guys, the hardcore Nintendo faithful and the somewhat lukewarm kinda Nintendo faithful have made the Switch a revolution and you should be commended for showing up early, buying the games, supporting the indies and the worthy 3rd party titles, and for doing your part as Switch (and Nintendo) ambassadors.  

Your dedication to Nintendo this generation helped put the Switch on a path that will reward you ten fold.  Already we're seeing Nintendo start to bring out genres and IPs once thought abandoned by the company.  The fact that the Switch is currently enjoying excellent sales with no signs of any slowdown on the horizon suggests that this generation in particular will be a renaissance for a host of different play experiences as the size of the install base and the energy of that install base almost guarantees us many, many more years and holiday seasons with this little hybrid.

So please...take a bow.  Tell us when you purchased your Switch and what dormant genre or IP you most hope gets to see the light of day thanks to this hopefully longer lifespan of the Switch.

Great job, you people who don't engage in gaming talk on the internet.

I bought my Switch on launch day while fully expecting to not buy another retail game until at least September. So I had only Breath of the Wild to go with my Switch despite owning a Wii U.

The dormant IP I want to see the most is Super Mario Bros. - absolutely ridiculous that it still hasn't been announced at this point in the lifecycle. Now I wonder if we will even get to play it before Switch hits 100m.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Yet we still don't have GTA V on the Switch

Everything Rockstar blows, IMHO.  Never liked any of their games, except Max Payne.  Rockstar needs to figure out how to develop a game with good controls.  I'm tired of tank characters.  

Since we're in the era of rehashing and reamkes, can we get a 1000 year door HD remake please? K thx

I kinda have to admit the promise of getting SMT V was really enticing me to get the console early ... but then I got Xenoblade 2 and a year later the absolute beast that is Torna, so all is well now ! (almost ...)

Bought my Switch in May 2017 along with Mario Kart 8, and BotW. Two and a half years later I own over 40 digital Indies and over 30 physical games for the system.

As far as long abandoned IPs go... 

This really does need a sequel!

I mean I also got a Wii U and was rewarded with game droughts and trash like Color Splash so it's not like my patronage makes a difference, but sure I'll take credit. :P
