Hollow Knight. Its beautiful and engaging, I'd recommend it to anyone.

Wait, there are people that don't have a backlog the size of the wall surrounding Nancy Pelosi's house? How is this possible?

Haha I do have a backlog, but of games that I've lost interest in and don't really want to return to. 



"If new things are so great, where have they been the whole time?"

Thanks for all the responses! I may go with Hollow Knight. I love metroid-vania games so this sounds like it'd be right up my alley.

Some games that I really like that I don't think were only your list

Axiom Verge - I like this better than the last few Metroids I've played. Extremely fun.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 - A must play for anyone who likes tactical RPG type games.

Katamari Damacy Reroll- Haven't gotten the Switch version yet, but the PS2 version is one of my top 10 games of all time.

Any Final Fantasy - They are all good and highly recommended if you haven't played them before.



IMO, try looking at some of the indie games. There are SO many gems among them that IMO are more creatively rewarding than the higher production big studio games... which, unfortunately, seem to only mainly do well at replicating experiences we've had since the PS2 era. Occasionally you get something special like Breath of the Wild, which goes far beyond simple replication of experience, but those sorts of games are rare.

But if you are looking for a proven experience and don't care about outdated graphics, something like Final Fantasy 7 would be far more rewarding than some of the more recent RPGs - which, IMO, lack the good storytelling and artistry of the game (yes, there is a lot of artistic merit behind those outdated 32-bit graphics and advanced midi sounds). But that's just me, I'm a fan of the classics and the cutting edge in creativity.

But, whatever your preference, there is an abundance of choice on the Switch now.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Vakkyria Chronicles 4. 85+ hours of my life! Loved every moment of it.
