Call of Duty
Burnout series
Team Fortress 2
Grand Theft Auto
Half life 2

i thought i stepped into a time portal with theese its not 2004 thats when hl2 and tf2 were wanted burnout series is done since paradise, now call of duty has lost some popularity and while i like the idea they are doing for the next one i think it will be a cold day in hell before we see CoD on Ninty hardware again.

My Wish list includes just one Series really METROID PRIME give me a trilogy HD remake without forcing me to use the damn Wii motion controls, i just want to use a regular controller. i wouldnt mind a new entry in the series as well though

i do think we will see a Super Smash Bros Deluxe get anounced at E3

Sounds like a cliche kind of thing to say however, I personally welcome new games as opposed to the ones that a vast majority of folks were already playing on their PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 up to a decade ago.

I thoroughly hope Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the only enhanced game from the Wii U and past Nintendo platforms. I remember the first eighteen months or so of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, whereby games that were barely two or three years old (on the PS3 and/or Xbox 360) were being rereleased as a remastered package for full price.

That's why the first eighteen months for those two consoles were utterly unremarkable, which is why I don't particularly want to see the Nintendo Switch falling into this cycle of rereleasing old games as 'new' ones all over again.

TL;DR - I do not want any (old) games ported to the Nintendo Switch!

Rogue Squadron.
^Licensing issues for this game and several others were finally overcome last year when Disney re-secured publishing rights to factor V's old stuff, then worked with Valve and CD Projekt to release on Steam and gog.com on PC. Hopefully it's a precedent: Nintendo may finally have a legal avenue for some of the older Star Wars titles from the N64 era. We just need Nintendo to realize this one's possible now and deal with Disney.
Side note: I built a tablet PC with virtual touch screen controller a few years back specifically to play the PC version of Rogue Squadron on the go. Having it on dedicated hardware with analogue sticks would be amazing.

Medieval 2: Total War.
^A PC game that has never been to consoles due to control issues. It requires a mouse, but COULD work with a touchscreen or motion controls if a tablet had the power....and Switch does! I really hope a PC RTS comes to Switch. I love my PS4 and Xbox One, but this is one genre they just can't do.

Best of Star Wars Collection from PC : KOTOR, Republic Commando, Jedi Outcast and Academy, Empire at War, Battlefront 2.
^Most of these already released on competing consoles during the xbox/ps2 era, but only Outcast made it to Gamecube. Now that we have both the power needed for a port, better licensing positioning, and (hopefully) a larger playerbase than the wii-u, this might be possible.

Railroad Tycoon 3. Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome.
^More games that could work with motion controls or a touchscreen. The older Age of Empires already has one-click controls built-in as an option, making an easier port to a touchscreen device. The expansion introduced modern staples of RTS gaming to the franchise that most players would demand (ability to queue units for creation, for instance).

TIE Fighter, 1998 edition
^Sticking with the easier access to Star Wars licenses, Disney also sorted this one out last year. Space simulators haven't happened on consoles in a long, long time. This is considered by most to be the best single-player game in the genre, and consistently ranks in the top 5 PC games of all time on IGN. By default, controls require a joystick, throttle, and 12-18 buttons. It would be a challenge requiring gyro motion controls and sticks mapped to either throttle/shields/camera, virtual buttons on the display and the use of all physical buttons. But technically possible, and again something that competing consoles can't really attempt at the moment.

Left 4 Dead, Portal 2
Two of the greatest splitscreen shooters of all time. Valve thought local co-op was so important, that they actually built in an unsupported split-screen modes for the PC versions accessible through the developer consoles. It would be amazing on Switch in tabletop mode, though it would require two more joycons to work.

N+
An awesome multiplayer platformer that would be perfect for tablet mode co-op.

Towerfall: Ascension
Already announced for release, it's a retro-styled arcade platformer. Think a mix of the multiplayer Super Mario Bros. arcade game, super smash bros, and kid icarus (nes version). Both competitive and cooperative modes are included.

World of Warcraft: Console Edition
The one that'll never happen, but I'll make a case regardless. Hundreds of thousands of WoW players signed a petition last year requesting that Blizzard remake classic wow. Millions play everyday around the world, and 6 million continued to pay $15/month to do so even at the end of a 13 month content-drought last year. With a combined former and active playerbase measured in hundreds of millions, WoW has potential for huge profits in an untapped market of portable PC-style MMOs. It would require a lot to work - blizzard approval, control-scheme revamp, a partnership with a 4G LTE company and mobile wi-fi adapter. But the system requirements to run the more than 10-year-old original game are easily surpassed by the Switch - so much so that 5 clients of a dungeon could be run in splitscreen in docked mode if they wanted to add offline capability with separate, local-only progression. I admit (as someone who lives in Shanghai), the infrastructure for the wifi aspect of this is much more available in China than in the US. But that could be seen as incentive, perhaps?

Personally there are only about three games that I would buy myself if they were ported. Smash Bros Wii U/3DS, Super Mario Maker and Mario Kart 8. We know Mario Kart 8 is a thing so if the other two become things I'll also get those. I don't really care how much they've added since the Wii U releases.

But for the system more generally? I think Rocket League on a portable device would be pretty good. Bayonetta 2 should also be ported because not enough people would have played it on Wii U. I don't really thing it needs much more than that beyond, obviously, a Virtual Console service more generally and the occasional remaster of a Wii/GC era release.

Really though what I want to see is third parties start putting their games on the Switch. If and when a new Tomb Raider is announced it needs to be on Switch. Same deal with Assassin's Creed and whatever else comes out along those lines.

Some good Aussie musics: King Gizzard, Pond, TFS

My main wishes: Bayonetta 1+2 to coincide with a 3 announcement or release, Mario Galaxy pack, 3D Zelda collection.

I think that we'll see quite a few third parties at E3. There are a lot of popular games announced right now that haven't been confirmed for the Switch, like Shadow of War and Battlefront 2, so perhaps we'll get some information on those. It's supposedly very easy to port games to the Switch.

Currently playing: Bayonetta 2

I think people are just trying to be realistic...sure, current gen AAA titles like Horizon Zero Dawn would be nice - pretty unlikely though!

It's difficult to know with current gen - most AAA's (Horizon, The Witcher etc.) are probably a bit too cutting edge to 'make the Switch' ..is that true of all AAA titles? Even earlier ones like Dying Light? ..not sure!

Overwatch hasn't been ruled out - which suggests that it's probably borderline possible - so I'm guessing we'd be looking at games on that sort of technical level or lower...Rocket League, for example, would be a great fit!

You'd imagine that anything that appeared on both current and last gen consoles would be possible - eg. Metal Gear Solid V, The Witness etc. - with Skyrim already confirmed, it'd seem that games from the PS3/X360 era are more technically realistic...we'll have to see how it turns out!

...but I think some older ports of true classics would be great! ..games that haven't aged particularly well might need a make-over (GoldenEye looks a little dated now, bless it!) - but Virtual Console has been pretty successful over the last few years, so people will clearly buy older games if there's a good incentive to do so ..the great thing about the Switch is that it allows you to play games that you probably only ever played at home, on the go - so you get a whole new way of playing it! That's big for me - I'd certainly be tempted to buy an 'old' game like Half Life 2 knowing that I'd be getting a familiar, yet very different, experience

@skywake I would also like to see a port of the wonderful 101 even if it's digital only. That game deserves a second chance.

@NaviAndMii i agree about being realistic but certain games like horizon zero down NOBODY will be able to play on anything other then Sony hardware it was made by guerrilla cambridge(owned by sony) to those that dont want to see ports of older nintendo games i say one thing, dont buy them, im sure there are gonna be alot of switch owners who didnt own a WiiU considering nintendo sold 2.4 million switches already and the WiiU only sold 14+million, i do understand that probably at least half bought the switch to upgrade from a WiiU but ill be damned if the other half werent bought by "hardcore" gamers who havent had a ninty system ever or lately. with that said in mind i dont mind remakes or HD upgrades of WiiU games Wii Games or even Gamecube games, but what they cant do is have the whole library hinge on them. Thats the mistake the X1 and ps4 made in the beginning, their libraries were about half remakes.

Remakes i think would be good are games like Pikmin 3, Bayonetta 1&2 , Super Smash Bros(let be honest how cool would it be to do a lan match in tablet mode), Mario Maker, and i still think it would be great to release compilations of thier franchises, i know i would easily buy a DKC Compilation, same goes for Mario Zelda and Metroid. They dont have to be huge ones just give me from the N64 up essentially all the 3d ones. they already release almost all the zeldas since the N64 on the WiiU package them up and sell them all together.

i agree new games are important but as long as they dont overload the library with remakes i think theres a place for them. remakes in place of new is bad, remakes to suppliment new is not as bad still not great, but remakes at a reasonable price(not60$) alongside of new releases is a good idea for them, they can make some extra cash to put towards new games and hoepfully some newer IP's

while typing all this anyone else like me and wish for a Eternal Darkness remaster, that game was a blast to play but even back then it looked like ass and has only aged even worse.

@Almighty-Koz Yeah, my bad - my examples weren't the best! ..I was just thinking of cutting edge games and Horizon just popped in to my head! Red Dead Redemption 2/Destiny 2 would've been better examples! ..GoldenEye is a licensing/legal minefield - also extremely unlikely! ..but you caught my drift at least!

Totally agree that there's a place for ports/remasters so long as they don't flood the library with them ..that's why Skyrim was a good choice, it was a real standout game of that generation and, if Nintendo cherry-picked a few more titles of that calibre, I don't think there'd be too many complaints!

I'd like to see;

Bayonetta 3
Vanquish 2
Dragon Quest Builders (should be possible)
Rogue Squadron Remake
Star Wars Battlefront
Red Dead Redemption
Bioshock

I think that a Star Wars game will be a priority at the end of the year to coincide with the release of episode 8; The Last Jedi. Dragon Quest Builders is a good fit for a Nintendo system, I don't understand how it missed the WII U. A bit of wishful thinking for Bayonetta and Vanquish sequels . Remakes or ports of Red Dead, Bioshock, Fallout etc just to flesh things out.

@faint Yeah, Doom certainly ticks a lot of boxes - the fact that it only came to current gen platforms makes me doubt whether it'd be possible - but if Overwatch is borderline, then maybe Doom could have a chance..?

@DBPirate A lot of folks on here were expecting Destiny 2 to automatically turn up on the Switch. What happened? Only on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War has already been officially revealed as of a few weeks ago. Same story; it is only on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Here's the website itself: - https://www.shadowofwar.com

Star Wars Battlefront 2 has code on its EA webpage and on posters at the Star Wars celebration this weekend. What platforms? Same old, same old; PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Catch my drift?

@NaviAndMii I am not opposed to old(er) games reappearing, just that I and many, many others have played them all in the past ten years. Seeing the likes of BioShock, Half-Life 2 and Red Dead Redemption, to name but a few, jotted down on people's wishlists on here is quite bizarre.

I don't understand why Switch owners are suddenly clambering for them when they had all this time to do so, especially throughout the dry bone (ho ho!) months during the Wii days.

I do think that the likes of Rocket League and some of the Japanese games from the PS Vita catalogue will soon turn up in due time though. If anything, it's the software from the PS Vita that is more likely to appear on the Switch, rather than those that were previously on the PlayStation 3 and/or Xbox 360.

Honestly, the Switch can become a beast of an RPG machine. Already confirmed or released are Disgaea, I Am Setsuna, Project Octopath Traveler, DragonQuest, Fire Emblem, Xenoblade, etc. I'd love to see a pretty full RPG package, including Kingdom Hearts. In terms of company relations, we've had Kingdom Hearts games on 3DS, so there's history of cooperation for the franchise. Release a KH collection on Switch along with Kingdom Hearts 3? That's be awesome.

I know RPGs aren't as big as they were before, though, and we need some other stuff. I can't stomach any more Assassin's Creed, so I couldn't care less, but maybe stuff like The Witcher. Taking that on the go would be insane, absolutely insane.

@Peek-a-boo
I think a lot of people are naming older, "classic" games like Red Dead because, honestly, there hasn't been a whole slew of amazing games lately. Horizon Zero Dawn, yes, that would be cool, but that ain't happening. I still laugh about the Destiny thing - no way that was ever happening.

But aside from The Witcher 3 and The Last Of Us, PS/Xbox offerings for the last 3ish years have been incredibly lackluster, in my opinion. There's a reason why The Witcher 3 is STILL generating headlines on the major game websites 2 years after it's been out: not much better has come out since lol (PC is a different story, though - lots of good stuff there like Total War:Warhammer, but that ain't coming to Switch)

@rallydefault I hope that turns out to be the case. RPGs are probably my favorite genre.

Project Octopath Traveler in particular looks interesting, especially the visuals, considering how little we know about the game itself. The sort of subtle mix of retro and modern visuals looks really great IMO.

@Peek-a-boo will for me I have played skyrim to death but will be picking it up anyway due to portable skyrim. I imagine some here feel that way about some of these games.

I'd really love Plants Vs Zombies 2 ported to Switch. I love it on my Android tablet. It would be even better without the micro-transactions. I've put hundreds of hours into that game (and the first).
