I've certainly spent a lot on the Switch plus accessories, and I've purchased many more games for it in addition to the ones you have listed...

But I think I've still spent more on PS4 games this year. It's not like there's a packed line-up for Switch.

I've spent around $500. I only have Zelda so far. I might get Mario Kart. Next game for sure is Disgaea 5. I was going to buy neon Joy cons but they are $100. Fuck that.

I have no desire to get a bunch of filler games.

Truly no console launch has ever had half a dozen games and extra controllers available before. What a time to be alive.

But glad you're enjoying the software

I don't get how anyone can get a Switch while knowing all the stuff that hits before Odyssey isn't for you. If i wasn't interested in ARMS, Splatoon and all these stellar indies I wouldn't have gotten one, even if Zelda was my most anticipated game.

Hum no? I think other consoles had about the same amount of games, which is normal for the launch of a console?

I haven't bought much yet, but there's a good bit I want. Just waiting to see what's suppose to come later this year before I decide what to buy. For now only the absolute must haves. I am surprised how many titles I'm interested in.

the inital burst hurt my wallet...

console, memcard, screen protector, carry case, extra controller, 1 game.

but since then... i havent bought anything and the rest of the year looks like a cake walk from my perspective.

which is totally fine because i have a ton of ps4 games to catch up on and that are coming out that interest me more than switch's yr 1 release calendar.

It got ridiculed a lot at first but people will look back at the Switch's first year and say it was pretty damn good just from First Party alone.

Zelda
Mario Kart
Arms
Splatoon
Mario
Xenoblade (probably not in 2017 but maybe before the launch anniversary)

I feel like there's a major time-spent-gaming gap that affects discussions on what counts as a packed lineup or a drought. I haven't touched three of my four switch games because all my gaming time has been eaten up by botw since March.

This is how I feel too. I bought Zelda but wasn't captured like everybody else. Until Splatoon 2 or Odyssey, I probably won't buy too much for it. Persona and Horizon have my attention ATM.

I've been able to hold back on buying too much but if it weren't for self control I'd probably be suffering too. I already have Zelda, MK8D, Disgaea 5, and Bomberman.

Just barely held back on getting Puyo, Spelunker, and a bunch of eShop games.

I want to play a lot of games on Switch but I'll wait for sales. Having one big Nintendo game per month is expensive enough for me. And having the option of buying those indie games for super cheap on PC makes me want to wait for a sale even more.

I dont have the money to buy all the switch games I'd want, that's for sure. Disgaea 5, ARMS and Splatoon 2 in two months, already preordered, dropped Lego City because no money, didnt even buy a single eshop game for the same reason. Feels already damn better than the WiiU, definitely

If I waited for Nintendo to have (decent) sales I sure as hell wouldn't play much.

Launch period is always a struggle. You drop close to $500 on the console and accessories. Then you're a bit more open to try different games. So you buy more of those than you were expecting, well, because it's a new console and there's only a couple franchises you know and love there at launch. Before you know it, you missing a huge chunk of your pay check.

I wish I was as enthusiastic as OP, but my wallet has never been more safe.

Love my Switch (detachable joycon play is fucking amazing), but only have 4 games.

Most games already out or coming out for this console don't interest me. I'm waiting for the big titles, like Mario and Splatoon.

I find myself loading up the eshop every day, hoping, praying, that something will grab my attention. But that's usually not the case. I do love street fighter, but I don't consider that game to be worth 35 - its a joke. And I think that's the problem. I'd probably buy a lot more games that I usually never would, but the prices stop me from being so adventurous.

I was sorta hoping for the virtual console by now (not neogeo, I am talking about past Nintendo titles here), or a browser/netflix/youtube/SOMETHING by this point. It's a struggle right now.

This is why I laugh whenever someone makes a thread asking where all the switch games are. There are too many this year for me to keep up with. I'm just hoping I can finish my backlog before xenoblade chronicles 2 comes out later this year. #believe #notpersona5

Hmm... I think the line up is terribly underwhelming. Vast majority of indies I have elsewhere, Zelda is really the only outstanding title beside MK I guess, but kids weren't interested in the WiiU version and I certainly am not.

So for me I am going to wait till next year when hopefully 3rd parties from Vita and 3DS will start pumping games out. This year beside Zelda and then Mario/Xenoblade there is nothing of one likes SP games.

I haven't touched the switch in over a month, feel like Wii U all over again. Which is fine I buy Nintendo consoles just to play the few Nintendo exclusives every year. I own everything but a One, I have a pc for those games, and over 300 games on backlog so I need to be picky with what I play.

I'm on the opposite side. I have a PS4 and a Vita, and I already have most of the multiplat games. Disgaea 5, Puyo Pop Tetris, Fate/extella, Minecraft (Vita)...

ARMS and Splatoon 2 are mostly multiplayer games which I don't have even a tiny amount of interest in. I hated Splatoon on Wii U honestly.

My first year buy list for Switch looks like this:

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (already got)
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
Steep
Skyrim
Fire Emblem Musou
Mario Odyssey
Xenoblade 2

That's it. Every single game is coming out in fall. I have nothing but Mario Kart 8 and I really don't want to play it as I have already played countless of hours on Wii U. I love my Switch and I want games for it asap. It's gathering dust right now and I'm not happy about it. Do you hear me third parties? Make games for this amazing system! Pretty please?
