The facts are against you Nintendoomers on this one. Animal Crossing is one of the most worthwhile games released in video game history. Not to mention an HD remaster of the most celebrated 3D Mario game, a new remastered version of Nintendo’s most critically praised RPG. This is demonstrated by some of the highest sales Nintendo has ever seen.
Your complaints have nothing to do with you being a gamer. Nearly all of the 30 million people who bought Switch are also gamers. Dismissing that with a “because I’m a gamer!” isn’t an argument that makes you right, it makes you pretentious.
I doubt those 30 million people who got a Switch past year are only playing AC and a Mario collection. The point of buying a hardware is the cumulative library as well as future releases.
2020 Nintendo's release schedule was very dry, basically Animal Crossing, Paper Mario and a bunch of remasters. As you seem unable to see value in anything that don't resort in high sales then we can talk about sales: AC and evergreen 2017-2019 games hard carried Switch last year. If you don't believe just look at software sales and see a bunch of 2017-2019 games outselling everything released on Switch last year not named Animal Crossing or Mario All Stars
Not particularly relevant when evergreen sales making up large parts of Nintendo's sales is completely normal. The existence of evergeen software doesn't mean all newer software is dry.
Let's take a look at 2020 software sales of 2020 releases to test your hypothesis.
Animal Crossing - 31.18 million
Hyrule Warrior - 3.5 million
Pikmin Deluxe - 1.94 million
Mare Kart Home Circuit - 1.08 million
Mario 3D Allstars - 8.32 million
Paper Mario - 3.05 million
Xenoblade DE - 1.48 million
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon - 1.26 million
Clubhouse Games - 2.62 million
A total of 54.43 million games sold. Looks like your hypothesis failed the test, since it's not a very dry year afterall. Animal Crossing has been the most significant release on Nintendo Switch since 2017.
Not only was this the highest selling year for first party software released in that particular year on the Switch, but perhaps among the highest in Nintendo's history. Additionally, Animal Crossing is the first killer app released on Switch since 2017.
