The fact that the Switch launched with a whole two games for it has kept me from buying one, and its library still hasn't grown all that much (as Dragon Lord said as well). Nintendo hasn't put the same energy into developing games for this like they did for the Wii, but then this also isn't "active" system that the Wii was so eh.

Honestly the new Pokemon games have got me interested enough to bite the bullet and get one. And there's enough other games I'm interested in trying to make it worth the price I suppose. I do love me some Mario Kart... and Zelda's the one game I've been wanting since it launched.

What game were you playing? Maybe that contributed, although it would do the same on a TV wouldn't it? Not sure if a smaller screen might cause things a larger one wouldn't. XD

Yooka-Laylee. After ten minutes or so I started feeling unwell. Maybe just because of the bright colours, but I doubt it since it was fine once I switched to the full TV mode.

Of course it's very rare I travel anywhere that gives me free time with my hands so using it as a portable console would be useless anyway.

in the Switch defense I heard from other people that Yooka-Laylee suffered camera controls which might explain why you were feeling unwell while playing it. Smile

I am not quite sure how Yooka-laylee is on the Switch as I don't own it.

@Geoffrey
The year itself has honestly been kind of a dry spell, but they did get Mario and Zelda out so their two biggest hitters in the first year was really good! I honestly believe will probably see them pick up steam again in 2019. As for now if you do decide to pick one up I'd recommend trying out Splatoon 2 its a colorful third person competitive shooter that really fun. Smile

Yeah and honestly the games they have now are enough to keep me interested. I don't need a full shelf of games to make it worthwhile; a handful of really good, big hitters entices me enough and that's either already here or already announced.

I'll definitely check out Splatoon 2. Not a huge fan of shooters, but "colorful" intrigues me lol.

I'm glad that more actual exclusives are getting announced or are coming out. What annoyed me about the first year of the Switch was that the vast majority of the library was available on Wii U, PS3, or PS4. I didn't feel like dropping $300 just to play Mario Odyssey.

I do find it a bit interesting with how people said the Wii U had garbage games, but they are buying all the Wii U ports on the Switch.

I got a pair of red/blue Switch controllers on sale for $60 new at Meijer. They had a sale where you clip their coupon & save a certain percent off of one item & you get it for a cheaper price. I had to make the purchase cause my original controllers were starting to drift something awful while playing Octopath Traveler. D:

I think it may be more that people didn't find the games being announced for the Wii U to be worth investing in the system, especially with how the system had no third party support like the Switch does.

I got a Nintendo Switch for Christmas last year. I didn't get one immediately because there has to be enough games for me to warrant getting one to begin with. Otherwise, it'll just sit there and collect dust. Plus, if I don't get one right away, it gives them a chance to work out any kinks or bugs out of it before I get that particular console.
