It's hard to remember so many low quality forgettable games, and ports. And 2020 wasn't the only year where I forgot about stuff.

Yet you remembered all 4 Wii U ports, a toy and an expansion in 2018......

Because I happen to own most of those 2018 things. So it was a matter of looking directly to my left as I typed it off. Also, the Labo Bomb has been my screensaver on my PC ever since I used it for a sig here.

So ports/remasters were worthwhile titles to own in 2018 but in 2020 they are "low quality and forgettable".

And you also couldn't remember the toy announced a few days ago.

I didn't say that the ports were low quality and forgettable. I said it was hard to remember so many low quality, forgettable games and ports. If I said there were ripe, green watermelons, and people, would you think I meant that green ripe people existed? Jesus Fuck. Learn to read.

Sure, I forgot the RC car game, but I also thought Ring Fit came out in 2020, and added it to my list under the 2020 section, until somebody corrected me on it.

I would prefer to use all the relevant data. At the very least anything surpassing a million copies sold should be included in the comparison.

Yeah I agree, do you think making such a thread would be fun? Comparing each years software releases lifetime sales?

Yeah it would be a cool thread. I'll make it or you can. If enough people respond, you can get nifty badge on the site!

You didnt say they were forgettable, yet you forgot to add them to the list so which is it?

Where they forgettable titles or did you deliberately choose to exclude ports in this years list while including them in the 2018 list?

My dude, I also forgot about Star Allies in 2018, and 1-2 Switch in 2017. Check the post history. Edit: And Fitness Boxing in 2018.

Nice false dichotomy. Any more rigged questions? Having something be forgettable, because it doesn't stand out, and forgetting something that's very important because there are too many things to remember are two different things. For Example: You can forget your important house keys, while leaving the house, because you were trying to keep track of 15 other things. Or you can forget you owned a bunch of toothpicks because they don't stand out.

Sure, you forgot a game or two each year but in 2020 (the year you are arguing is worse than other years) you missed like half the lineup. I hope you can see how that comes off like someone pushing an agenda.

If you're going to have an accurate comparison than either include everuthing or have a specific criteria (like only new games or only games that sell x amount, etc).

If you include all the ports/remasters in one year than include all of them in other years.

If you include a game based around a toy/accessory in one year than include games based around a toy/accessory in other years.

If you include 3rd party games published by Nintendo in one year than include all 3rd party games published by Nintendo in other years.

I just want consistently when it comes to making year by year comparisons.

Out of the 9 games I forgot 7 of them are games I never bought, or don't plan on ever buying. I would have forgotten a couple more games from 2018, that I didn't buy too. But they were part of xPhenom08x's list, which I was building on.

Edit: I forgot, that I forgot NSMBU as well. So to update, I forgot 9 games in total, 7 of which I didn't buy.

So, I've been watching this from a bit of a distance, and...

THANKYOU! I've been trying to tell them that they completely missed the context of your OP. You started this thread by basically asking, what new games were coming out this year, and then pointing out that it wasn't much. Of course anyone with half a brain should understand what you meant by that. But they insisted on using ports of old games to drive their narrative.

It's the same type of idiocy as the following discussion...

Teenager 1: I can't find a girlfriend. Nobody likes me.

Teenager 2: The old, one legged, lunch lady in the cafeteria likes you. You should date her! I'm serious!

Teenager 1: How dense are you? I obviously meant, nobody *MY AGE* likes me.

It's like they can't even read between the lines. Every damned thing has to be spelled out for them, and spoon fed to them.

Edit: And now I'm going to take a few days' break from this thread. I've been on here all day. Partly because I wanted to stand my ground on a topic I felt was important. Partly because I was waiting for the rumoured PS5 price reveal/blowout, and absolutely did not want to miss the thread that ensued. We only get threads like that once every seven years after all! Anywho, I'm exhausted, and Persona 5 really needs to be finished up.

I honestly think the pandemic has messed up Nintendo's plans for the year. Hopefully next year will be more like last year.

Anyway, Zelda's 35th anniversary is next year. I wonder what they'll do to celebrate it. Maybe show a trailer for the sequel along with a remaster of Skyward Sword?
