Heya! Welcome to my lil hangout thing for Nintendo fans all over the world. Hope you brought lots of snacks ;D

Don’t know if you know me, but my name is RPGamer, and I comment a lot on posts. I’ve been a huge Nintendo fan since I was five, and I love RPGs (shocker). I love drawing, collecting and playing all things Nintendo (and third party games too.)

So come on in, sit down in a bean bag chair, and let’s chat! I can’t wait to meet all of you.

RULES: No swearing/NSFW. Mild words like “damn” and “hell” are allowed.

DO YOU GUYS LIKE YOUR GAMES PHYSICAL OR DIGITAL?

I prefer physical games, because I’m a huge loser and I love collecting those beautiful ol’ cases. My most recent purchase was Luigi’s Mansion 3, and I have Animal Crossing: New Horizons preordered!!

Anyways, what do you guys prefer? Tell me by replying!

@RPGamer It really depends on the game for me. I get the physical copies of almost all of Nintendo's flagship releases, partly because of the novelty and partly because my SD card is almost full.
I'm a sucker for sales; almost all of my digital purchases are games that were on sale (Spyro, DBFZ, etc.). Honestly, I prefer the smaller stuff to be on my Switch at all times so I can have a break from the bigger games like Smash or Ultimate Alliance. But that's just me.

I prefer physical games unless 1. the digital release is significantly cheaper (usually from a sale) or 2. there is no physical version of the game. I don't dislike digital per se, but I'm pretty conservative when it comes to SD card space.

I've been mostly physical on Switch (though I'll buy digital if there's no other option), while I've found myself going mostly digital on PS4 due to the constant sales I end up being drawn into.

PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)

@RPGamer I generally prefer physical games but I'm not a purist. I have no issues about downloading games if that's the only option or if it's much cheaper.

Or in rare cases, like Animal Crossing, I prefer digital so I can quickly hop on and play around every day, and go back to whatever game I'm also playing later, without having to swap games over and over.

Also Switch my my favorite console by far. Going back to PS4 or Wii U just feels like such a downgrade. The hybrid design is perfection! When I go back to PC or PS4 or even 3DS, it feels like going back to using a land line phone or an old flip phone after having gotten used to my smartphone. That's not to say I don't like other platforms, I've played everything from NES to Swtich and most offerings from Sega, Sony and Microsoft too. There's very few game systems I actively dislike.

@Heavyarms55 I KNOW RIGHT?? After the Switch, it’s so hard to go back to other consoles! In fact, id go as far to say that it seems looks like Nintendo’s definitive console.

I like both. I like playing games.

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

I prefer buying physical games. I only buy digital games when I don't really have a choice in the matter.
I love drawing! I'm an artist myself... I also love collecting things like games and statues as my hobby!

It's nice to meet you again RPGamer!

@RPGamer The Switch is the realization of a dream I never imagined would actually happen, a portable device that allows us to play the same games on the TV or console with no serious restrictions or reductions. Remember the Game Boy era? I grew up playing Game Boy and GB color and GBA. Games on those systems were great! But they always lagged generations behind anything on a console or PC. But the Switch can handle full meat games and all that's sacrificed is some resolution - which doesn't bother me at all.

The only reason I return to PC is for mods and other fan works that will never come to consoles. Most notable Star Wars Empire at War mods: Thrawn's Revenge and Fall of the Republic(Wonderful mods based on the old pre-Disney canon in the post episode 6 era and Clone Wars respectively) and mods for Cities Skylines adding in all kinds of neat things that they'd never get permission to put in the official game (at least not without loads of licensing issues)

@T7Hokage017 why hello again!! It’s nice to see you here

And I completely agree with you on that - physical games are always the first choice for me. I only get digital games if there is literally no way to get them physical, which is also why I usually pass on digital titles, unless they are critically acclaimed.

@RPGamer I'm glad that we agree on a lot of things! I'll always prefer physical over digital.
I doubt I'll ever change my mind. I'm a collector and I don't have anythin' to collect if it's digital.

@T7Hokage017 I COMPLETELY AGREE!! If a game doesn’t have a physical version, then I can’t add it to my game shelf, so that’s annoying

I'm an oddball when in comes to collecting. I've never been a fan of disc-based media, too prone to scratching. During the PS1's era I had no qualms about trading in games after I had finished them. During the PS2/Xbox era I was a pirate, rarely paying for games, playing most of my games off a hard drive before digital distribution was even a thing. 360/PS3, all digital all the time, same here on PS4.

However, the Switch is a different beast. Nintendo's decision to go with cartridges sparked my desire to collect again. Something I hadn't done in nearly twenty years. Those rows of red boxes sitting on my shelf make me wax nostalgic every time I glance at them.

As Sony, MS, and the industry in general move towards an all-digital future the Switch feels like the last bastion for collecting games physically.

@Magician huh, that’s super interesting! I see where you are coming from with that opinion. It’s cool to hear your thoughts on the matter!

NEW QUESTION:
What third party game do you MOST want ported to the Nintendo Switch? In the replies, please tell me which game you would LOVE ported to the Switch, and explain why you would love that game!

As for me, there are two third party ports I REALLY want right now: Persona 5 and Danganronpa Trilogy. ATLUS needs to stop fooling around and just release P5 on the Switch already - it would be an amazing game to add to my library AND play on the go.

As for Danganronpa Trilogy, that game would literally be right at home on the Switch. Mystery-solving fun mixed with investigation, mini games, and visual-novel esque scenes, it would be a PERFECT GAME to cozy up and play on your couch.

Please let me know your thoughts on my picks and let me know your picks in the replies!!
