Nintendo switch Q&A Mint horseCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 42080774

I'm getting a Nintendo switch tomorrow, and I was wondering if any of you guys had suggestions for games that I should buy, or just advice in general.

I've desperately wanted a switch since it came out, but have been way too lazy to get one. Thanks to Ikas thread however I've been pushed over the edge, and am finally going to buy one.

The bundle that I'm getting includes Mario odyssey, and costs £299.99/€342.48/386.88. I'm going to spend around a £100/€114.16/$128.96 on games for the switch, on top of Mario odyssey which already comes with the bundle. I'm primarily thinking of buying The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, Celeste, and Hollow Knight, which should take my cost up to around £379/€432.67/$488.76. Although the games that I'm planning on buying aren't definite, because I'm sure that some of you guys will have better suggestions.

I'm willing to spend just over £400/€456.64/515.84 (Which is just under half of my NEETbucks, but well worth it considering how much I've wanted it, and how long I'll have it for.) on everything, not including a few very small miscellaneous things like drinks, food, transport, etc. So that gives you guys as aforementioned a good £100/€114.16/$128.96 to play around with. Suggest your favourite games, and or accessories for the switch and I'll consider buying them.

I got a switch, just to play smash.

The fact that any other games are on it is just a bonus, though i will say, the free games are fun, and i might get breath of the wild at some point.

I'm not really a gamer, i just like to play them, the switch has been a good platform to do that on, its been entertaining, and its easy to transport and play with friends.

A good system. I wish you could send messages on it though, without needing a phone app.

>I got switch just to play smash.

To be honest I've never really liked smash. The main problem I have with it is that you need a lot of good friends who also enjoy smash for the game to be worth while. And I unfortunately have no one how'd be willing to play it with me. If I had a lot of cool smash friends I'd have definitely got the game, and I could easily see it becoming one of my favourites.

I mostly bought it for Zelda, good Pokemon games, and (when we eventually get good Pokemon game on the switch which will hopefully be soon rather than later. I think this is the first Nintendo console I've bought that didn't come with a Pokemon game.) Mario maker two, when it comes out.

I'm also really looking forward to some of the old NES game that come free with switch online. Being a zoomer means that I've never played any of these games, but still have a strong nostalgia for them. Being completely immersed in 30 year old boomer culture gives you an extreme nostalgia for eras and things that were only around before you were born. Probably because 30 year boomer culture runs on 90% nostalgia, and 10% monster energy.

So far I've only played Mario odyssey to give the system a try. And so far it's one of the best systems, of not the best system I've ever used, based on flexibilit alone. I'll play Zelda tomorrow when I have more time to really appreciate the game, and the same goes for the older game I want to play.

Blame that awful history class. And past me for being lazy that I now have to put extra effort into salvaging my grade in it.

It's a great Stardew Valley platform, nothing quite like growing crops in bed.
Zelda:BotW is a given, extremely beautiful.
Hollow Knight fell flat for me on gameplay but it's so pretty I kinda wanna go back to it some day.
Rocket League is a fun eSport that's actually still fun for non-eggheads too. You're a car and you play hockey with a ball. Great game to get your multiplayer itch scratched. If you have one. The sort of game where you miiiight get obsessed enough to play practice mode all alone just to practice dribbling. It's quite addictive.
Splatoon is Splatoon. Squid waifus and inky goodness!
Skyrim is on the system, it's Skyrim. I love having such a fucking massive world to explore in my purse.
There's a version of Monster Hunter.
There's a version of Lumines.
There's a version of Isaac.
There's a version of Minecraft.
All your staples.

Warframe is free if you think it looks cool. Best graphics on the system, great co-op slashy combat if you're into that. Like, it's not overwhelmingly spectacular or anything, but if you don't wanna spend money but still have games, there ya go.
Fortnite is another free game on the system. Either you like it or you don't, you already understand what it is.

Don't tempt me now, I'm 18 credits away from a degree, and the sunken cost fallacy is already losing effectiveness as a motivator as is.

Pic related mfw I was unironically drinking soy milk while playing the switch yesterday.

>>42080838
Thank you!

I'm thinking of eventually getting Stardew, Hallow Knight, Skyrim, Isaac, and Minecraft. The reason I never got Skyrim, or Minecraft is because is thoroughly played both games in Xbox 360, as well as their remastered versions on Xbox One. I'm looking forward to playing them, but I'm in no rush because of the countless hours I've already sunk into both games. Indie games were also off the table because of sheer amount of indie game, and NES games I'll be getting for free with switch online. I'm not fully aware what the rest of those game are, (Stardew for example.) or I'm just not interested in them, (I've wasted to many hours on Fortnite to justify getting the game again, even if it is free.) but I'll check a few of them out.

I got Mario odyssey, Zelda:BotW, and switch online, which I think is a fairly good starter pack. I usually get a Pokemon game whenever I'm buying a new Nintendo console. But let's go Eevee looked like utter crap, baby's first Pokemon. I'll definitely get Mario maker two, and any good Pokemon games when they come out.

>>42080823
I'd be willing to play smash with you when I get the game. The only problem would be time zones.

>>42080827
I'll play with you as well, if you ever manage to finish your history work.
