Right. You’ll always be missing something unless you literally own every single console and platform on the market (including Apple’s new platform that’s getting a Sakaguchi exclusive, for example).

But there’s only so much time to play video games, and if Switch can continue to offer knockout exclusives up the wazoo, like really high quality exclusives such as we see this year and the previous 2 years, on top of a choice selection of some of the finest 3rd party titles, I really don’t think I’m going to use another console again (unless it’s Monster Hunter- I go where MH goes).

I like to fantasize about playing certain 3rd party titles on both Switch and a power console (like DOOM Eternal, for example) so I can enjoy the nice graphics. But I just can’t bring myself to buy the game on X1X when it doesn’t offer gyro. So I started thinking maybe I just need to convert over to PC so I can use the gyro STEAM offers. Drop 1500 bucks and get something top-of-the-line, then just upgrade it every 8 years treating it like a console. But truth is I probably wouldn’t even play that. Switch has me covered.

Still. I feel like I at least need one power console going into the next generation, be it PS5, Xbox 4 or PC. Just in case the occasional masterpiece drops that doesn’t come to Nintendo that I really want to play. I’m just not sure which one to get yet. I guess we’ll need more details first but, I’m really struggling to convince myself to buy anything other than a PC, though PS5 would probably make a lot of sense just given how many good exclusives they get. I guess we’ll just have to see how it goes

I'm glad we're getting Link's Awakening. Breath of the Wild is a great game, but I do like the style of classic Zelda better, and I hope we keep getting some game with it on the future (even if they're remakes).

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

I'm surprised people criticize BOTW's dungeons so much. IMO they are some of the best dungeons in the series from a puzzle perspective. They take the idea of manipulating the physical structure of the dungeon to solve it, and go all out with it.

My only problem is their shorter length, and the lack of the great theming that Twilight Princess really did extraordinarily well. TP's dungeons always felt like they belonged in the world as something other than a dungeon.

@rallydefault
I think people are really asking is for games to leverage exploration more. That doesn't necessitate a game being completely open world. The first generation of Pokemon had a surprisingly good sense of exploration and was all corridors. Though speaking of Pokemon, a lot of people want that game to have a BOTW treatment because we feel it really fits the franchise well. And I agree with them, I think the ability to collect monsters and go on an adventure fits really well in an open world game.

Currently Playing: Steamworld Heist, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Tales of Graces F

My top 5 is:
1. Super Mario Maker 2
2. Dragon Quest XI S
3. Astral Chain
4. Luigi’s Mansion 3
5. Trial of Mana Remake

Legal threats that have gone nowhere: 1

JaxonH

Astral Chain, Fire Emblem, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Dragon Quest XI S, Pokémon Sword/Shield, Ni No Kuni, Doom Eternal.

I’m hyped for a lot of games shown this E3 that aren’t listed here (Mario Maker 2, Daemon X Machina, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Zelda Link’s Awakening, Panzer Dragoon, Witcher 3, Trials of Mana, Animal Crossing, DQ Builders 2, No More Heroes 3, Wolfenstein Youngblood, Breath of the Wild 2 which is too far off to hype much, God’s And Monsters), but these take the cake by far.

@iKhan I completely agree. I loved BotW dungeons (not quite on the level of TP, but those are the best in the series). They were basically four gigantic puzzles, and I thought they were great. There was a lack of enemies or overall danger which could have made them better, but I enjoy the puzzle elements of Zelda more than the combat. I also thought the bosses were great. Sure, they all looked the same, but they furthered the puzzle elements in how to fight them. I just wanted more than four.

Seeing your love for fire emblem, I would say PC is the way to go. No other platform comes anywhere near the PC when it comes to strategy. PCs usually have better CPUs as well, making simulators such as cities skylines better, especially in the later stages.

Mouse+keyboard is usually a better pick as well with those games. The switch seems to cover all other genres well, so unless you want the exclusives from PlayStation or want a cheaper option, I say PC is the way to go.

I may have to buy a ps4 pro or xbox one x to play Cyberpunk 2077 when it comes out. Switch and New 2DS XL are the only consoles I currently own. There are more than enough games in my backlog to keep me busy for a LONG time. But still... I really want to play Cyberpunk! Maybe I could hold out till the next gen of xbox and playstation in the hope they will release an even more gorgeous version of it for those platforms.

My 5 most anticipated switch games are:

Luigi's Mansion
Astral Chain
Fire Emblem
Zelda Links Awakening
Mario Maker 2

(Pokemon Sword/Shield is number 6!)
