@scubydo I would recommend either the Double Fine games or Nefarious. They are all on sale for $5 each, giving them even better value.

I got some Xmas money and want to get either Pokémon let’s go or smash. Let me give you some back story so you can give me a recommendation.
I’m 30. I have three kids. I probably spend 2-4 hours per week playing games. Rarely do I “complete” a game. The only games I’ve ever completed are Pokemon x and LoZALBW. I’m a very casual gamer. 95% of the time I play games, I am playing by myself.
Thanks in advance for the recommendations!

@PolarExperience The Jackbox games are great for parties, even with people who've never held a controller in their life. I believe some of them are on sale right now too.

@ReaderRagfihs Jackbox has been recommended to me many times, but I’m pretty sure my friends will find a way to make it kind of uncomfortably vulgar. Should I buy Puyo Puyo Tetris when it’s on sale? I really enjoyed the demo but it’s a little too expensive right now.

@PolarExperience It definitely can get a bit vulgar with the right group, though for some that's part of the appeal.

Puyo is pretty good too. The gameplay is fun and there is a healthy selection of different game modes, though some are better than others.

I'm looking at one of those bomb defusing games. I think I remember hearing that one of them is a lot better and the others are kind of rip-offs, but I don't remember which one is good. I'm thinking it's Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, but can anybody confirm? Both that at Them Bombs are on sale right now, and I thought there was another one, too. Also, would it be fun with just my wife and I in the same room? Or do you need more people? We love playing escape rooms and similar games, so I thought this would be good for us.

@KrispieKurt Smash. It's a game that will be a nice slow burn over the next year or so and its easy to play in short bursts. If you do play with the family its nice and easy to enjoy.

@JackEatsSparrows there is just so much good stuff on sale at the moment. In the last week I have picked up on and off sale Shantae Half Genie Hero, Hollow Knight, Horizon Chase Turbo, Stardew Valley, The Banner Saga, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Grim Fandango Remastered, RBI Baseball 18 and I still have Smash which has and will no doubt continue to be fun for a very long time. My wife also gave me Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu for Christmas. I also picked up Wave Race 64 and Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber for the WiiU. Looking at this list is there anything anyone would recommend that is in a different genre to those I have recently bought??

@bluemage1989 is it even better when playing single player? I have played other smash games and they seem to feel redundant after about an hour of play when playing by yourself.

For some reason, I can't make a topic, so i'm just gonna ask this here

I've had my switch for about a year now, so i've accumulated most of the games that I've wanted. I currenlty have Breath of the wild, Mario Odyssey, Lets go Eevee, Smash Brothers ultimate (Fighters pass too), Octopath Traveller, and a bunch of indie games (Dead cells, Hollow Knight, Celeste, Lightfall, Stardew Valley, and I installed Warframe and played it a bunch, but i'm sure that doesn't count as one) but now i'm at a loss. I got a $100 gift card to gamestop for Christmas, and I need peoples help on what to get. I'm fine with a game of any price, but I can't think of one i'd want to get.
If anyone has a good switch game that they loved, i'd love it if you told me.

I also have a 3 month nintendo online subscription, I don't know if that'll effect your suggestions.

Thanks for taking time to read this, and have a great morning.

@KrispieKurt hard to say but ive enjoyed it a lot so far. Classic mode offers some great themed series of matches for each character with some nice bosses and score chasing is enjoyable. Your regular Smash is still there if your only wanting to fight matches with some custom rules. World of Light does offer a pretty lengthy campaign with each match having specific rules based on the spirits involved. As a side to this the spirit board mode (as well as World of Light) offers hundreds and hundreds of spirits to collect which could keep you busy for months if your so inclined.

Should I buy Puyo Puyo on sale now or buy Celeste at its regular price? I’m not into really difficult games, if that helps.

Edit: Went with my gut and got Puyo Puyo Tetris. I need more multiplayer games in my life.

@PolarExperience I was just about to suggest Puyo. It's great.

@Madnessman I would recommend Katamari Damacy Reroll and Snipperclips Plus. Both are vastly different, and while I haven’t played much of either (don’t own Snipperclips), I can say that I was having fun the entire time.
@ReaderRagfihs Tetris is one of those games that never really gets old. I’ve never actually owned a copy of Tetris before, so I think this is a great place to start (not to say I wasn’t enticed by the Puyo Puyo segment, as well).

CharlieGirl

please recommend me an eshop RPG!
I'm in the mood for something esoteric and arty, while still being grindy.
I was eyeballing Saturday Morning RPG or YIIK, but! they both have male protagonists. I'm not in the mood for all that.

so. an eshop RPG with a female and/or nonbinary lead character (already played Undertale, haha).
whatcha got fer me?

I can say now that no eShop RPG has a nonbinary lead character in them. There’s I am Setsuna, a pretty good game from what I’ve heard. If you don’t mind several main characters, Octopath is a great experience and has a healthy mix between male and female leads.

@CharlieSmile Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna, the Golden Country has a female protagonist while also sharing the protagonist role with a guy since they're a duo. Standalone, so you can buy it separately from the base game.

The base game is the same deal, except a guy is the main protagonist sharing it with a girl, another duo just like in Torna.

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill

@EvilLucario the game's control options do sound promising.

I really want a new Switch game but not sure which one. Been thinking about Ys 8, Diablo 3, Bayonetta 2 and Disgaea 5. I prefer exploring and open world, not only fights. If you've played any of these games what do you think about them? Thanks in advance 🙂

@Chimaj Ys VIII has exploration but it isn't open world. It's more like a mix of Metroid-like progression. Combat's good enough.

Bayonetta 2 is all about fighting and does it the best out of almost everything else on the system. The level design is just set dressing to funnel you to the next fight.

Disgaea 5 is pure strategy.

Diablo 3 I have no idea.

Other games I could suggest if you don't have them are Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Dark Souls. Xenoblade 2 has a lot of big, open worlds with a lot of combat and a great story, and Dark Souls is pretty non-linear with great combat too.
