    Question I'm Not Sure What My First Nintendo Switch Game Should Be

    I think I finally going to get a Switch, but it looks like the best console ever. There are so many good games for this. I mean look:

    Animal Crossing: New Horizons
    ARMS
    Axiom Verge
    Cadence of Hyrule
    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
    Celeste
    Cuphead
    Dandara
    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
    Dragon Quest XI S
    Enter the Gungeon
    Fire Emblem 3 Houses
    Golf Story
    Hollow Knight
    Kirby Star Allies
    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
    Luigi's Mansion 3
    Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
    Mario Tennis Aces
    Octopath Travel
    Pokken Tournament DX
    Pokemon Sword & Shield
    Ring Fit Adventure
    Sonic Mania
    Splatoon 2
    Stardew Valley
    Super Mario Odyssey
    Super Mario Maker 2
    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
    Untitled Goose Game (I thought this was a PC only game)
    The Witcher III: Wild Hunt
    Wargroove
    Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair
    Yoshi's Crafted World

    I have no idea which one I should get first.

    All that but no Xenoblade Chronicles 2? That game's actually still the only reason I even have a Switch

    FE3H and AC are both amazing games for different reasons.

    I don't have a switch but if did I'd get OT first.
    Jack: How do you know?

    Will: It's more of a feeling really.

    Jack: Well, that's not scientific. Feeling isn't knowing. Feeling is believing. If you believe it, you can't know because there's no knowing what you believe. Then again, no one should believe what they know either. Once you know anything that anything becomes unbelievable if only by virtue of the fact you now... know it. You know?

    Will: No.

    If Demolition Man were remade today

    Huxley: What's wrong? You broke contact.
    Spartan: Contact? I didn't even touch you.
    Huxley: Don't you want to make love?
    Spartan: Is that what you call this? Why don't we just do it the old-fashioned way?
    Huxley: NO!
    Spartan: Whoa! Okay, calm down.
    Huxley: Don't tell me to calm down!
    Spartan: What's gotten into you? 'Cause it sure as hell wasn't me.
    Huxley: Physical relations in the way of intercourse are no longer acceptable John Spartan.
    Spartan: What? Why the hell not?
    Huxley: It's the law, John. And for your information, the very idea that you suggested it makes me feel personally violated.
    Spartan: Wait a minute... violated? Huxley what the hell are you accusing me of here?
    Huxley: You need to leave, John.
    Spartan: But Huxley.
    Huxley: Get out!
    Moments later Spartan is arrested for "violating" Huxley.

    By the way, that's called satire. Get over it.

    If you have someone to play with, MK8D is pretty good.

    Three houses is a pretty good game too.

    The remake of the first Xenoblade game is going to be released in two days or something. If you haven't played it on the Wii already, I highly recommend you get the remake asap.

    Well if the project ever comes out of development hell, I know that Shin Megami Tensei V will be my first game for the darn thing. Actually make me pick it up.

    The other games I'm interested in are:

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
    Octopath Traveler
    Collection of Mana
    Super Mario Maker 2
    Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Remake
    Mario Odyssey
    Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    Collection of Mana you should get because you get 3 fantastic games in one.

    Also grab untitled goose game, it's a quick play but so charming.

    Zelda and FE3H are both games I've put hours into.

    Are you looking for a game to play with others or a game to immerse yourself into?

    Well, what did you end up getting?

    Breath of the Wild is a must have and, for me, Links Awaking was very nostalgic in that it had the feel of the 1’st Zelda game on NES. My 6 yr old and I finished it together, a lot of fun.

    Okay, just had an early Christmas with close friends and my GF today. I am now the proud owner of the blue Switch Lite, ans Octopath Traveler. So...

    I will likely pick up:
    Breath of the Wild
    Link's Awakening
    Bloodstained
    Super Mario Odyssey
    Mana Collection

    What else should I pick up? I am also debating about the Nintendo Members Online subscription because while the list is still small, the selection of NES/SNES games is still pretty good.

    Yeah I was thinking of those games as well. I will probably pick up the Xenoblade remaster as well, but I'm not exactly ready to tackle that beast of a game again.

    I am thinking of getting SaGa Scarlet Graces on the system. I'm currently downloading a few demos to play while I'm over at a relatives for the holiday. Not sure if I'm going to start Octopath traveler just yet.

    Fire Emblem: Three Houses is very good.

    I've not played much to be honest, but I'd rate Animal Crossing and the Pokémon Sword/Shield games as skippable (AC for me would only be worth getting at launch period when everyone is playing, these days I'm less interested). Mario Kart is good fun if you have people to play it with but it's not dramatically different to the previous ones and I wouldn't say it's "must have". I'm not hugely fond of the Smash Bros games in the past but I found myself loving Ultimate. And, finally, Zelda is undoubtedly worth getting. I say that as a person who had only played one Zelda game seriously before he played this one.
    Bow before the mighty Javoo!
