Title: Best Games for Switch?
Post by: Baron Samedi on January 02, 2018, 12:16:54 PM
So my folks got me a Switch this holiday season. I'm pretty psyched but I don't really know what to do with myself. I've been running a PS2 for the last 10+ years so I'm pretty blown away by the graphics and capabilities and all that stuff even though I know it's not as powerful as the other current generation systems. I bought Mario Odyssey and Zelda because they seem universally loved, but just wondering if anyone has any suggestions of cool indie games or other must-haves.

I've been wondering the same thing.

Can anybody help with this?

Edit: New rule. Don't mention Mario or Zelda. Chances are we've already played them.

The Legend of Zelda is incredible.
The Binding of Isaac is my go-to.
Enter the Gungeon is killer and pretty cheap.
The new Super Mario Odyssey is just OK, as far as I'm concerned.

Seriously, though...get the new Zelda.

EDIT: also...Doom and Skyrim are supposed to be great.
AND...they're releasing Bayonetta 1 & 2 in a month or so. I've never played them but they're loved with a cult-like fervor.

Bro I didn't know you were a GAYmer!

Thanks for the suggestions. I've heard BOI is super hard but it does seem like a good one. I picked up Doom this weekend and am really enjoying it. Would highly recommend. I'm saving Zelda for later since I already know it's going to be amazing.

I also am having fun with the Sonic remake, although it makes me feel old since I frequently get overwhelmed by all the seizure-inducing visuals and the cracked out soundtrack.

I don't have a Switch, but Golf Story look super fun.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-6HotrJfBI

some description from their website (http://golfstorygame.com/ (http://golfstorygame.com/))

- Tee up anywhere! Youíll be surprised by how many problems can be solved by hitting a golf ball at them.
- Explore 8 unique environments, each with their own courses, towns, people and secrets.
- Play through a dramatic story with a diverse cast of characters.
- Upgrade your golfer by completing challenges, solving puzzles and buying new equipment.
- Round out your skill set with long driver tournaments, disc golf, mini golf and wee links. Then go beyond golf with extra challenges like races, mowing, drone flights and geocaching.

Mario + Rabbids battle kingdom.
Not only is it good. But the fact that it's sounded like a dumb idea made it better. Also the game is tough. Really challenging. It's tactical shooter RPG, which is crazy and one of the best looking games on the switch. Some would argue it looks better than Mario odyssey.

Indies:
Rocket league - soccer in rocket cars
Sonic Mania - its a new classic sonic, everyone loves it. If you liked sonic on the genesis, this is for you.
Kamiko - highly aesthetic retro Zelda-esq puzzle game
Shovel Knight - Fucking great 2d adventure platformer, plus you get the DLC which is basically 3 games because each character controls different, has different levels and story arcs (although there is some crossover which only helps the story) A great difficulty curve. Sort of like Megaman/Castlevania/Metroid

I like phatom breaker, which is like streets of rage with anime girls, but it's not everyone's cup of tea.

Rahman Legends is the GOAT of 2d platformers in my opinion so there's that.

It's pretty much only fun with a buddy, but Snipperclips is a super cute puzzle game that's lots of fun. Splatoon 2 is fun, even though Nintendo's online kinda stinks. If you haven't played Skyrim before that's probably a must have. I got my Switch day one and I'm still not tired of Zelda and Mario. Mario Kart 8 is also fun.

Yeah as an RPG (specifically JRPG) lover, I'll probably jump on Skyrim and then once they come out with some more JRPGs I'll probably pick those up too.

I've put a bunch of hours into Zelda and have basically not advanced the storyline at all. I'm just having tons of fun cruising around and doing side quests and finding shit to cook.

I do have to side with GAY here and say it's actually been hard for me to get into Mario Odyssey. For whatever reason it hasn't grabbed me like the other games have.

Agreed with with Mario Odyssey comments.

If you like 2D Zelda get Blossom Kingdom. Super cool pixel art and tons of fun

Is anyone playing Switch without a TV? ie only using it as a portable system?

I really want to play it (especially for the new Bayonetta, but Zelda looks pretty good too) but I don't have a TV and don't plan on buying one.

I've played the switch on the go. It's cool. A different way to game.

I bought it thinking I would never use it as a handheld but eventually it just becomes so much more convenient. TV or not you'll love it

I mostly play on my couch with something else playing on the TV. I only really dock it when I have company. There is a drop in resolution and frame rate in some games, that's mostly not noticeable.

2018 already seems to be a big year for the switch.
New super smash bros expected this year.
