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.
Yeah, on my way to work, I realized exactly this. If I had just made a thread called "I'm dissappointed in Nintendo this year." it would have been better in a thousand ways.

I'm predicting Pokemon Let's Go will get somewhere in the low 70's, simply because it's a Pokemon game. There are a lot of Nintendo games that score around 77-79 like Arms, Hyrule Warriors, Mario Tennis Aces, and Pokken. Personally, those games aren't for me (at least not at a full $60 price tag), but if I saw those games one someone else's shelf or collection, I'd give them a thumbs up. Let's Go probably won't even reach that level of decency. I mean, it's heavily borrowing mechanics from... *HACK*... a mob... a mob *WRETCH*... oh God a can't even say it. A MOBILE GAME! *vomiting intensifies*
