No. 30 45.45%
 
It isn't the only big game this year. 35 53.03%

Smash, Pokemon, Mario Party, Fortnite, and all other ever green Nintendo titles. That's more than Microsoft or Sony. They'll be fine. 20m sold fine.

Seriously? People legitimately think the Let's Go games will be good? The gameplay in those makes me cringe.

Your title says big games, and this is a sales site, so the correct assumption is that Pokémon Go is a big game.

Pokemon Let's Go doesn't count! If it did, it would go against his own thread.

Sales + Critical Acclaim (Or at least above average review scores. And no, average is not 5/10.) Why, should any self respecting Nintendo fan get excited about a game that sells well, but bombs with critics? 

But see ... this is what I don't understand ... WHY don't you make a thread about your own personal disappointment that is worded in a way where you use your personal viewpoint to make a compelling argument? 

Look, I'm very disappointed in this year too. I have only used my Switch for a couple of hours in the ENTIRE YEAR. But this is the 2nd time you've made a thread that seemed like pussyfooting around the main point: your disappointment. Your last thread was about predicting the amount of "big games" or whatever Nintendo would make each year by using an average calculation. The reason you made the thread was very clearly hinted at your personal issues with this year, but you made a thread about how much games Nintendo would be making ... even though that has nothing to do with your disappointment. The two ideas don't connect, what's the point of even making a "prediction" thread when what you're disappointed in is the stuff YOU KNOW is coming out.

And now this thread is about your disappointment, but you connect it to the idea of "big games" ... while simultaneously leaving out a game that will probably be as big as Smash. I'm sorry, but again ... why would you use an idea that has nothing to do with your personal feelings, as the basis to complain about your personal feelings on a matter?  The concepts do not connect.

Here is a huge ass post I made about my disappointment regarding Nintendo. It could have been it's own thread. Do I look like a loser for writing such a big post? Probably, but at least the idea makes sense. It isn't tied to "how much will this sell" or "this is how many BIG games per year nintendo makes". It's self contained and makes sense.

Oddly enough, the amount of 3rd parties will keep me entertained despite the lack of big 1st party games this year (octopath alone should keep me busy for hours). That, and I still have to get many of the big games from last year.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

In terms of sales, I would definitely count Pokémon Let's Go (No wild battles griding,yeah !) in the big releases of this year. But that's not to say we didn't have any good mid-tier titles released this year though (without counting ports).

Kirby Star Allies, Labo, Mario Tennis Aces, Octopath Traveler, Super Mario Party, Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion, Xenoblade 2 Torna the Golden Country.

And we could go on and on with the releases of quality A/Indie games we got ... but nah :P

Weaker year than 2017 ? Of course, but we're still way ahead of the WiiU's typical year.

Same. I'm looking forward to Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 (enjoyed Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 and 2 a lot), Dark Souls Remastered, Okami HD, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, Dragon Ball Fighterz, and Mega Man 11. That's not including Spyro Reignited on my PS4 and Smash Bros Ultimate.



If you dont want a dumbed down pokemon.... or a mostly port like Smash game (Im not a smash fan either).
Yeah Id be dissapointed if I was a switch owner about 2018.



Pokemon Lets Go aren't big games??? I also think the games will turn out to be bad, but you cant deny that it will be a system seller. Too many genwunners and casuals left for that not to happen.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
