Forums - Nintendo Discussion - New Nintendo Switch Trailer Celebrates Over 1,000 Games For System

I'm glad Switch has a watch list feature as with the sheer amount of below average games, the good games and the games I need to remember to buy tend to get lost.

Indeed, it's a mystery. Why does an ad targeted at people who don't own a Switch yet highlight the games that have sold the most Switch consoles so far?

An even bigger mystery: Why would a thread title a trailer as if it's a "celebration" of the over 1000 games on a system when the trailer barely mentions it and actually doesn't focus on it at all? 

Or yet another mystery: Why does every commercial have to show the same 5 games?

You probably have a very specific taste, then?

Mostly Turn-Based RPGs and Strategy RPGs.

Switch has excellent and good entries in these genres. Disaea 5 Complete, Octopath Traveler, Battlechasers Nightwar, Labyrinth of Refrain for instance.

All too low-budget for my tastes.

Hmm, as this genre is very niche: do you play anything at all? I think only Persona has a higher budget, so only persona?

EDIT: Too be precise, octopath traveler is here the one with higher budget obviously. This game shows off a lot of work, which means money that was poured into the project.

That creates an even bigger mystery: Why was that article titled that then? 

I mean sure, I guess the phrase "something for everyone" is neat ... the trailer really didn't showcase the library as a whole, though?

It's titled as such due to the youtube video having "With over a thousand games on Nintendo Switch, there’s a game for every gathering. Visit Nintendo.com to learn more!" in the description



There aren't more or less crap titles in the Switch library compared to either PS4 or Xbox One. The ratio is probably the same (within lifecycle).

It is however easy to say that there many crap titles (80% crap is just blatantly wrong). If you took the time to check out half the library, there would be more than enough good games to choose from. It's just about what you're willing to pay for.

I have over 110 games now, and a good majority of those games are good. Perhaps I should not have gotten Bomberman R, but nothing else I think in my collection is bad. Mediocre at worst.

As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Therefore Rol says that you need glasses.



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