These games are recommended 

Switch Only

Splatoon 3(not for me I don't like to bully kids online but good for other)

Ahh anyone have user data on the average age of the players.  You just described the stigma all video games had not too long ago and the stigma Nintendo has carried even more recently ... video games are for kids

I'd invite you to play some Splatoon and see who bullies who.  Perhaps it is just me but in most of the games I have played online the kids have better eyes and better reaction times than the adults and if it weren't (in many cases) for the better strategy employed by the adults then the kids would wipe the floor with them.

EDIT: moved my 2 cents out of the quote box

If it released on another platform, dead or not, then by it's very definition, it's not exclusive.

I take it you don't know what "for all intents and purposes" means.

For all intents and purposes, I disagreed with your assertions.

BotW (cross gen but Switch is the main version)
Smash
Odyssey
Mario + Rabbids
Splatoon 2
Mario Maker 2

Those would be my must have exclusives.

Basically he means it's Nintendo exclusive (only on Nintendo devices), and the U is (and mostly always was) dead so he's kind of right. For any practical logic talking about an exclusive library of games that gives value to the library, it's a Switch exclusive, for a technical precision (which is not so useful in this case), it isn't.

You are twisting things around to fit a narrative.

The success/lack of success of the WiiU is absolutely irrelevant to a ported game being a Switch exclusive.

If it released on WiiU... It's absolutely 100% not a Switch exclusive.

Pem, it's a question of practicality. We're not at school the point of OP is to talk about must haves on Switch that you can't find elsewhere unless you're one of 10M individuals who bought a U and most like upgraded to a Switch.

No twisting at all just a drop of common sense.

By the way it's not a dig I think you're great, but let's keep our logic grounded, I am in that position.



EBWOP: @Pemalite, just to keep things into perspective, regarding BotW:
Total sales for the Switch version reached 22.28 million by March 2021. It has sold 1.67 million copies on the Wii U.



Daemon X Machina if you like mecha and anime. Great game.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

I tried that with my girlfriend when she questioned my sexual exclusivity,I explained that I started preparing to have sex with her sister way before meeting her and having commenced foreplay it seemed unwise to pull out and while there was some overlap, we have had way more sex.

Now  while her decision to exclude other people and instead have sex together may or may not have lead to an outcome where the sex ended up involving just the two of us, it is  still evidence of our sexual exclusivity, also me knocking back the advances from the supermodel Horizon is another demonstration of just how exclusive our sex life was, but after all that mansplaining all I got was this reply .

No. You are shifting the goal post and twisting definitions.

And you are right, the Op is talking about must-have games that can't be found "elsewhere". - Thus if it's on WiiU, it can be found elsewhere, that's being logical and literal.

The amount of people who bought a WiiU is thus irrelevant to that end.
Even if only a single WiiU console ever sold, if those games can be bought on it, then those games are not exclusive to the Switch.

Again, sales are irrelevant.

The amount of sales doesn't exclude a game from being exclusive to a platform.

If Breath of the Wild sold a SINGLE copy on PC... And 100 million copies on Switch, it's still not exclusive, sales are irrelevant, the actual release scope is relevant.

Same goes for games that only sold in specific regions...

So for example if a game on SNES only sold in Japan, but was re-released ONLY on Switch, it's still not exclusive to the Switch.

And Breath of the Wild is actually a good example, I completed that game on WiiU as the WiiU was the cheapest way to play the game on release when accounting for console+game purchase.
Obviously have a copy on Switch as well now, but unlikely to ever replay it.

But still. Breath of the Wild is not Switch exclusive, I even own the physical games to prove it.
