Got a Switch, must play games? I prefer RPGs, Metroidvania, Soulslike, action/adventure. Anything with a bit of a challenge.

Here's a list of things I'm thinking of getting:

Celeste
Astral Chain
Dark Souls
The Witcher 3
Iconoclasts
Vampyr
Cosmic Star Heroine
Hyper Light Drifter

Mario + Rabbids. It wasn't too difficult but it was a really fun game with a ton of charm. It is also a really cheap game and be found for about $15 new.

everyone is going to say odyssey, botw, smash and MK8D, so i'll talk more about rpgs.

for rpgs fire emblem three houses and octopath traveler are both very good, xenoblade chronicles is getting a remaster soon and xenoblade 2 is already on switch. DQ11 is an all time great as well. up with dq8 among the series best.

what other systems do you have? unless the portability is key i would say get the witcher on one of the big systems, otherwise you're paying a big price premium for the worst version., same for vampyr and dark souls.

CSH was really good, i hope they make another. another smaller yet interesting thing is subsurface circular and its follow up quantum something or other, but check out some gameplay on it first its probably not the kind of thing everyone would be into.

valkyria chronices 1 and 4 are also great, you may have already played those on ps3/4 though.

I'm mostly looking to play games on it for portability, I've already played DS1/TW3 on console and it's more to replay. I honestly don't remember much about TW3, I beat it and was like, I guess that was okay? I wasn't blown away by it like everyone else was. Maybe a replay could change my mind but it's more so on low priority for me.

Is Crash Team Racing better/worse than MK8D? Never understood the appeal of Smash.

Played those on other consoles, Axiom Verge would have been better if the music wasn't pure crap.

Oh yeah, I think I remember you saying that in another thread. I thought the soundtrack was amazing.

Might get this one, the Gold Edition is $19.99. Not big on SRPG but it looks simple and fun enough, that can get hard apparently.

A few levels later on in the game can get more challenging and the special stages were actually very difficult. I 100%'d the game and it became incredibly difficult towards the end with the post game content. Loved every minute of that game though. Best thing Ubisoft has made in years.

For solo play:

1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
2. Super Mario Odyssey
3. Luigi's Mansion 3
4. Fire Emblem Three Houses
5. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
6. Pokémon Sword/Shield
7. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
8. Yoshi's Crafted World

For multiplayer:

1. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
2. Cuphead
3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
4. Overcooked / Overcooked 2
5. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze
6. Snipperclips: Cut it out, together!
7. Super Mario Party
8. Kirby: Star Allies

Most of these to be Nintendo exclusives. I wouldn't consider any of the ports "must-have" since PC is a better experience, but I've gotten LA Noire, Stardew Valley, Crash N'Sane Trilogy, Rayman Legends, Scribblenauts Megapack, Sonic Mania, Celeste, Wargroove, and Sega Genesis Classics, and enjoy all of them. I've also heard good things about the ports for Dark Souls, Witcher 3, Skyrim, Ghostbusters, and Friday the 13th.

Dragon Quest XI if you haven't already played it. Aggelos is a great Metroidvania style game. And yeah, Octopath Traveler as someone mentioned.

Is any of this helping you Kommie? Based on your responses it sounds like not really. Then again most of these threads usually go like this.

It's helping. lots of games I've already played mentioned, Hollow Knight, The Messenger, Axiom Verge, Shovel Knight. Forgot about the Grandia re-release so I added that to my wishlist. So far I got Celeste and Mario + Rabbids.

I'd start downloading demos and playing those before dropping $ on digital games you're stuck with if you don't like them.

What systems have you owned this and last gen? Of those what games did you enjoy that are available on Switch? What didn't you enjoy?

The Switch is largely a 1st party, then indies, then port console. Like the other consoles, not a ton of 3rd party exclusives.

I have PS4, and a gaming PC. I'm mostly interested in first party / indie stuff, ala Celeste, Iconoclast, Astral Chain and I've tried some demos and most of the stuff I'd like to demo, doesn't have one, like Astral Chain. I did download the Octopath Traveler demo. Still on the fence with BotW, never really liked Zelda games.

Most people don't like BotW as they claim it's not a Zelda game: no real dungeons, little direction, breakable weapons, etc. In reality it's a game about exploring and discovery, and in true open world fashion just seeing what you can do.

Heard many great things about Ori and there is a demo for that unless you played it on PC. I just picked it up from the Thanksgiving eshop sale.

Honestly I recommend Crash Team Racing. My wife and I loved Mario Kart but we switched to CTR as she prefers it. I am actually thinking about getting it on switch since it's cheaper than buying 2 more dual shocks.

It's a great game .. but really going with both is not a bad idea, there is such a huge lack of good cart racers supporting the good ones is never a bad idea.

Have u tried Children of Morta? A sweet little indie that's top down. It's like a mix of Zelda, Dead cells, binding of Issac
