They do not need games out urgently... do you even keep up with how the Switch is selling? 😂they need to show us more of the confirmed games for 2019 and some unconfirmed ones so that people know what the lineup is for this year/updates on the current lineup. 

That's just an opinion though. Yes it might be selling but its selling based on what it currently has. Wii was flying too then it died in the arse because there was nothing new coming that catered to new buyers.

Personally I am bored of my switch already. When I look at my PS4, every week there seems to be a new game or two coming out. I may not buy it but there is the option to buy it if I am bored. You get the impression something is always happening on the PS4 that meets everyone's tastes. On Nintendo systems we are at the mercy of Nintendo showing us something as generally 3rd party support is lackluster the last few gens.

 

This is what im trying to say. My Switch is gathering dust meanwhile my PS4 is getting hammered all the time. GOW,RDR2, Spiderman and backlog games like HZD to name one in many.

Wait so your saying its possible for Ubisoft to bang out multiple AC And release other games like farcry inbetween but nintendo cant? Why cant nintendo have two teams working on zelda at any time? I refuse to believe Nintendo is a small company than Ubisoft. Nintendo devolopment teams are just slow and outdated. Not used to working on HD LOL, xbox and sony devolopers are learning 4k loads of graphical effects and VR. Lets face it guys nintendo are stuck in 2006. 

 

Why do you think Ubisoft faces a lot of criticism ? For releasing every single year a new iteration of Assassin's Creed, but basically the same game with a few added twists. And for giving the impression that all their open world games are the same. If you wanted to give a more accurate example, take Rockstar. Rockstar has "only" 2000 employees but doesn't have to worry about the hardware. And guess what ? We don't have a RDR, GTA, La Noire or Max Payne every year on every console.

Im not saying every year or anything, but my god why waste the BotW Engine? Its been two years already thats enough time to get something up and running im sure. Also i dont notice when waiting for GTA because you know, the 6000 Triple AAA quality games that release in between. Right now im forcing myself to buy inferior ports like LA Noire and Wolf 2 at a more expensive price just to play my switch, but then i miss the trophies i would normally try and collect.

Lol you are braver than I am. I refuse to buy a game that requires a memory card to play it.  Like fuck charge be an extra $10 I don't care to get a biggest game cart. As a switch owner I have already made that decision I got the system for portability so fit the game on a game cart lol.

That's not exactly true, huge boost in sales Switch recived because launch of Pokemon Lets Go and Smash Bros Ultimate, last month we had NSMBU DX, next month we have Yoshi and next week we are getting Direct with new release dates. Wii died after great fly because it had tons of casuals that left platform after all that motion controls, Wii Sports, Fit...worn off, while on other hand Switch from start is selling to much more core games oriented market.

You are right that that Switch lineup (or for any platform) cant fulfill everyone's taste, but someone can say same thing even for PS4, for isntance, PS4 dont have not much after Days Gone launch, on other hand it seems that Switch will have very packed year when comes to Nintendo games and exclusives and some interesting 3rd party games.

What you're asking for sounds impractical if not impossible. There are at least 2 teams working on assassin's Creed at any given moment and even then they've still started taking gap years. You're not getting a new Zelda or any open world game every 2 years. Also upgrading the dock but not the handheld itself makes no sense. Throwing a ton of tech at the dock before an upgrade for the console itself just makes things harder for the devs. And finally it's called the switch for a reason, making PS4 and xb1 level games that won't run in handheld mode would be dumb. Just because you want a bog standard home console doesn't mean Nintendo should screw over their handheld fans

They do have 2 teams working on Zelda and we're probably going get a top down game sooner rather than later but expecting Nintendo to pump out AAA Zelda's every 2 years is just dumb especially if you expect the same quality as BotW. It would limit creativity and has the potential to impact quality.

Here is just one link showing 31 games which may be interesting and seem to cater to a wide audience

Throw in the sports games and then you have a lot to pick from.

Yes Nintendo have a bit to show, but I do not care for half of it. For me I have never been into animal crossing, yoshi, Pokemon let's go I played on mobile and got bored. Smash is fun but not as fun as MK or KI. This is just my personal taste.

So fro my perspective the Switch is hitting a dry spell compared to my tastes on PS4. The only way to fix that is to A) hire/buy more studios to make the genres the switch lacks, or B) finally find a way to get more mainstream 3rd party support.

That's your own problem though not everyone else's you arguing using your own preference as a basis doesn't paint an accurate picture, before KH3 arrived I hadn't bought a PS4 game in over 3 months it's only now that games are arriving that may interest me and the ones that do are on PC anyway which I'll get on that instead.

I hope we get a top down one soon albw was amazing on 3ds. I dont expect a 3D zelda every year. I just didnt expect them to waste the BotW engine so yeah i did expect something to be coming out after a couple of years. Fuck waiting 6 years again ill just ditch nintendo not worth wasting the money just to play one Zelda game per gen.

It hasn't even been 2 years. Even during the N64 era with way lower production values making Majora's mask in 2 years was pushing it

Dude its not 'pushing it' and its 2 years in march since release, but BotW was ready before than, they just needed it for switch release. If ubisoft can make the absolutely stella Black flag one year after AC3 and odeysey and Origins almost back to back both of which are highly praised then why us it pushing it for nintendo unless they have a problem getting software out? Oh wait that sounds familiar hello 2012,12,14,15,16 and 18. 2017 was a great year for Nintendo but 2018 was meh.
