Forums - Nintendo Discussion - I have no idea what to play next on Switch.

Fire Emblem and Bug Fables are among my favorites not on your list! Immortal is great, I played it on the PS5 but I hear the Switch runs well. Steamworld games if haven't played them elsewhere, Captain Toad if you didn't play it on the Wii U.

Thanks for the replies! I'll watch the trailers of some of your suggestions!

I might check out Trine 4, Darksiders and Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair.

Forgot about Hellblade being on Switch.
I'm not fond of horror games. Does Hellblade fall under that category?
I mean, I really don't like games with jump scares and stuff like that.

Same question for the Bioshok collection?

You have quite an impressive collection of switch games!  One I would recommend, Mario x Rabbids.  Terrific RPG, good replay, and it’s “technically” 3rd party, so it sometimes goes on sale for 19.99-29.99, unlike what you’ll find on most first party Mario games.  Good luck with your search!

No, Hellblade is not a horror game but it's got a very heavy atmosphere. It's literally dark, you can hear screams on the horizon sometimes, on occasions it gets claustrophobic or you don't know what to expect when it puts you in open spaces. 

BioShock 1 and 2 aren't horror games either but they're extraordinarily trippy, and share also the dark and claustrophobic features of Hellblade. Infinite in comparison is more relaxed. 

Edit: So I looked up if Hellblade is a horror game and most people agree it is. So, yeah, better ignore me there lol Thinking about it now, going around without knowing what to expect is horror, precisely. It didn't scare me, though, so that's why I involuntarily thought it wasn't.

No, Hellblade is not really a horror game. It has a dark atmosphere but does not rely on "scares".

Bioshock has more gore and is also quite dark but isn't also more about slow burn "creepiness" than jumps.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I'm the opposite myself, I looooooooooove jump scares =)
Especially if the game builds the tension up to boiling point.

Much like calamity aurprised u, rabbids x mario was surprisingly good to me. Also dragon quest builders qas alot of fun



"Skyrim (incomplete)" - I don't blame you. I bought it not really knowing what to expect, only that people were saying this one was good, I couldn't get into it.
Then Witcher 3 came out, and I was buying it expecting only a marginally better experience, so you can imagine my shocking surprise... It's like playing SNES RPGs for the first time, and getting Lord of the Rings (SNES), Wizardry 5 or Ultima 6 as your reference points, not really liking them, and wondering if this Chrono Trigger game is going to be a similar experience =D

But yeah, I feel stupid now for even thinking Witcher 3 and Skyrim would be anything alike outside of skin deep details.

  • Katamari Damacy
  • Dragon Quest Builders 2

... really, these two games are amazing!

If you got these, then try:

  • Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE
  • Hyrule Warriors
  • Immortals Fenyx Rising
  • Among Us
  • Armello
  • Spiritfarer
  • Child of Light
  • Valkyria Chronicles 4
  • Oxenfree
  • Super Smash Bros Ultimate

That should be enough to keep you occupied a few days.

All of the above, plus Octopath Traveler, and any/all Shantae games



I'd recommend
- 51 Worldwide Games (very good presentation and online mode)
- Billion Road (it's like Momotaro Dentetsu, the famous japanese board game)
- Tricky Towers (skill-based Tetris-like game with different modes)
- Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom (if you liked Wonder Boy - it's just better in every aspect)
- Dragon Quest XI (amazing story and world)
- Octopath Traveler (best music and round-based battle system in a while)
- Blossom Tales (Zelda 3 clone with special humor)

Hmmm what? I merely said what I said because I saw a large portion of the OP's game library comprised of first part AAA games, with only a small selection of third party, supplementary and mostly indie titles. It seemed to me that the OP is ignoring a large portion of the system's current and upcoming library. 

But you had to jump the gun on me, for some reason.

19 of the games on OP's list are third party, compared to 25 Nintendo games...

Yeah, no. You knew exactly what you were doing. 

And yet you ignored the part where I pointed out most of them are 15$ indie games. Angry indeed.
