It was clearly not gonna be a crap game, but one would expect critics to treat laziness a little more harshly. This is basically a 3DS Pokémon game rendered in HD and being sold at full price... never mind the lack of content and it being a gen 1 remake. It's just a fucking lazy game, and there shouldn't be an excuse for it, but once again the critics (and even the general audience) show that if it's on the Switch, it doesn't matter.

After all, this is the same audience that's paying $20 yearly to play P2P online and defending it.

Never have I been happier to be wrong!

Octopath Traveler
Torna The Golden Country
Poke'Mon Let's Go
Smash Ultimate

That's a good year for Switch exclusives. Add in things like Disgaea, Ys VIII, and Wii U ports and there was plenty of games on Switch for 2018.

I gotta play Torna sometime. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was a lot of fun imo. Also enjoyed Octopath Traveler. Can't wait for Smash Bros Ultimate and Let's Go!

I know this is a joke, but anyways Ill let you people know that breath of the wild is my game of gen, while mario odyssey is second.



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.

Good choices.  For me it is Breath of the Wild, with God of War at a close second.

Funny how glancing at various forums, there's a healthy amount of gamers disappointed the games didn't get lower scores. So odd

I agree. I'm personally fine with the scores it's getting so far.

Or you're just on a negative bias roll. Relax, your true next Pokémon Gen is coming next year. 

Biased towards what or whom? This game looks to be devoid of content (less content than than the $40 3ds games), with many essential things like wild battles, held items, and abilties stripped out. Graphics look like an upressed 3DS game.

 

And they are pandering to genwunners yet again (return to the worst region ugh). so hard that they couldnt even be bothered to include evos to gen 1 mons from future gens.

Feeling good at my 82 predication. Why are people so dissapointed it didn’t get a lower score. It looks like one of the more fun spin off Pokemon games they’ve made. Yes it’s not as deep as the core franchise games but that’s like saying you don’t like mystery dingeon because its different from the core franchise. You can enjoy both without comparing the two. It’s not like they came out and was like this is it, the next gen Pokémon games have arrived... I think some of the fans are being a bit closed minded.



I had it at 75, but I am pleasantly surprised that it's not! Another good game for the Switch. Let's gooo.
