Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Switch owners, how many 3rd party games do you have? (no Indies)


How many 3rd party games do you have?

Zero 29 33.72%
One or Two 26 30.23%
Three or Four 8 9.30%
Five or Six 6 6.98%
Seven or more 17 19.77%

50 % of my current library is 3rd party (Skyrim,RBI 2017). With Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Doom next on my list that number will hold true for a while.

"Games are a trigger for adults to again become primitive, primal, as a way of thinking and remembering. An adult is a child who has more ethics and morals, that's all. When I am a child, creating, I am not creating a game. I am in the game. The game is not for children, it is for me. It is for an adult who still has a character of a child."

About 15 off the top of my head. Seems like some third parties are reaping the rewards for supporting the Switch from the beginning.

Why counting out the indies ? Budget size and methods of distribution doesn’t make them less 3rd party than a AAA game.


L.A Noire
Dragonball z

If he doesn't count certain games it might make the poll more in line with what he might like, as a non switch owner I'm not sure why he would care about this info


If you are interested op there is a thread where users post all the third party games they buy, read through that and pick which ones count in your head based on whatever weird metric you think certain money doesn't"count"

Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games?

None currently, cause I don't have the cash or time to spare outside my regular paradox game sessions. Hell haven't got oddesey yet. But I AM 90% sure I'll buy valkyria chronicles 4 on the switch.

Skyrim, Mario x Rabbids, and Sonic Mania....Does Minecraft still count as Indie? :P
