@SomeBitTripFan Some great recommendations! To The Moon will hopefully be one of the next games I play. I recently finished Rakuen on Steam, and I thought it was so well done. I've heard To The Moon is up the same alley. Also interested in Finding Paradise, though as far as I can tell it's not on Switch?

@Magician When you google ‘How many Nintendo Switch games are there?’ it shows 2425 from a Wikipedia page. I was surprised that the number was that low, but that part of the page probably hadn’t been updated in a while.

There are 3803 games on the NA eShop, and Ring Fit and all the Labos are only physical, so a total of 3808 games. I will update the original post!

EDIT: I went onto google again, and it brought up a different Wikipedia page. This one said there was 2439, so neither of the pages have been updated in a while.

Heigh Ho Heigh Ho. It’s off to work (from home) I go.

@klingki Honestly assumed it was on Switch since To the Moon was, but apparently it isn't yet. Hopefully that will change soon. Haven't played, but have access to Rakuen, so I can't say much for similar appeal, but I'll probably be considering it more thoroughly. I don't want to say too much about it, but Finding Paradise is very dependent on the original game and the Sigmund Minisodes with a greater emphasis on the universe of the games, while TtM is mostly is telling a story with an excellent framing device. I'd say its worth it no matter what, but the appeal of the sequel is notably different.

I'm having quite a bit of fun with an overlooked indie title, called "Peace, Death!" which I got for a total steal of a sale price at just £1.57. If I had to describe it, its kind of like Papers Please meets Reigns, set in the afterlife.

At that price and the general quality of the game, I'm surprised it hasn't seen more popularity.

I think I just paid regular price... Oh well. It's pretty fun

@SomeBitTripFan What kind of a person calls themselves a BitTripFan but hasn't played Runner 3 yet? It's available for peanuts on sale sometimes, and is even free in the current massive humble bundle thing.

I love it, 100%ing most of the levels feels epic because each one is so long. I've still got most of the game to play because I spend so long on each level. They made some interesting choices with the visual design in R3, but overall I'm pretty satisfied that it is the best in the series.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Tricky as I don't knw the exact sales numbers or average ratings but here goes:

ATV Drift&Tricks
Break Point
Broken Circle
EQQO
Pocket Mini Golf
Ludo Mania
Lydia
Tanky Tanks
Piano
Switchy road
Wordify
Dungeon Village
Chaos Code
Use Your Words
Not Not
Zaccaria Pinball

Chaos Code is the only one I would recommend firmly though. The others are "not bad". Other ppl may differ in opinion I guess

Blood Bowl 3 will be coming out for Switch, and I think that series is brilliant. It's turn based strategy in the guise of a rugby/football game, and where all the players are classic (Warhammer) fantasy races like Elves, Dwarves, Vampires, Orcs, etc.. You can play a season where you recruit your team, they gain experience and level up or maybe they get injured or even killed! It's based on a board game that's been around since the 80s and, admittedly, the video game versions haven't been particularly well made. They do have a great amount of humor and personality though, and it saddens me that it isn't spoken of much.

LBX or Little Battlers Experience. It put level 5 on my radar. Its really a shame it didn't go over well because it goes hard. It has a story and gameplay any fan of beyblades battle network or medabots could get into. The story is well animated and done plus there is also an anime and they both are exactly the same which I like.

The game isnt perfect like not having online battles as an option or story armor being always better, or having so many armor stats but armors still not being unique enough although visually they are and most importantly weapons have to be swapped out for better weapons because despite the armor s and so many other customizations the game still feels like every thing rides or dies on getting weapons with higher attack power.

All that said i still consider it to be a supergame because it could have just stopped at okay but it didnt by having some of its cutscenes in animated 3d, extremely unique boss battles against non LBX, vast wealth of characters, local multiplayer side mode, 3 on 3 battles as the norm, and some many different and cool customizations as well as 1 or two the game could have did without.

Final Fantasy explorers - I have a bittersweet relationship with the hunter genre. 4 player co-op Im in. Other elements like grind ing missions, crafting, non splitscreen co-op, op bosses Im out.

However, just the fact that they created a game that offers 4 player online and local wireless for almost all the missions that takes place in the final fantasy universe makes it a supergame. There's a reason even if you haven't played a final fantasy game you still know the name and I feel explorers was the perfect way to make all gamers final fantasy fans and I feel it does a bit but I feel some parts should have been made different.

Getting to locations for boss battles is the worst part of the game. Especially if the mission requires you to defeat multiple bosses. The game so effortlessly opens the door to some of the most cool rpg classes and attacks but also forces you to run through 9 areas or more areas at its worst to get to the battle worthy of your mettle.

When explorers force for mobile was announced I got excited because i thought a great but imperfect game might get a switch sequel that might potentially fix stuff but it never came, not on the switch anyway.
Maybe that was for the best though Im starting to think what i really want is final fantasy musou!

I used to buy anything that came on sale for less than £5 so I've got quite a lot of shovelware but I've also found some really fun games, some of the ones that stand out are:

My Brother Rabbit
Mana Spark
Blazing Beaks
Glass Masquerade 1 & 2 (an absolutely amazing game when high, for you guys in a legal state )

With no Power, comes no Responsibility!

@Mr-Fuggles777 Got mana spark for free can be fun sometimes. Ill probably regret not getting the dlc on sale.

I really like space pioneer. There is a new zombie game that seems to mirrow its art sytle and gameplay but i didnt get it on sale since it was single player only. Id like if qubic games could do a over the shoulder version of space pioneer with co-op, also online.

What one thinks as a bad game isn't the same as for another gamer. So this very thread is already non-starter to begin with unless there is a world wide vote of games verified then we can truly say if a game is just not worth buying.

@SwitchForce It's not about if people think if a game is good or bad though, the thread is about unpopular games.
