What to play first?

#1
Ok well I have a really great predicament at the moment,

Just had my big four-oh ,and received a few gaming related gifts.

Metroid Samus Returns which I am about 7 hours into and loving it so much.

A switch with Mario Odyssey, then on order I have BoTW,

My question to gaf is do I put Samus to one side and get into odyssey ?

Or wait until BoTW comes ?

My gut is saying keep going with Metroid and play odyssey after.

What say you ?

Yeah ok, stealth it was my birthday thread !!

I would say finish Metroid and then play Odyssey first since you have it already.
You make too much sense but this is how I am leaning , BUT I just got a switch and want to try it out.

Work your way up to the best game of the past decade.

Samus-Odyssey-BotW
Without turning into an apples and oranges thread

I feel like I have a few of the best games in a particular genre to play and experience

When I'm in that situation I just play all three, then I normally end up hooked on one of them until I finish it. Repeat process with the remaining 2. Alternatively I just play whatever I'm in the mood for.

Odyssey is so good but I think when I go to work I will be playing Metroid on the 3DS. Still to early to take the switch out with me worries it might get damaged or stolen.

Finish that first. Zelda is a 100 hour game, mario is a 40+ hours. So my suggestion is metroid>mario> zelda.
Specially since zelda is good for short burst while on the go.

Happy birthday OP.

Great loot haul. I'd spend a day getting a feel for each of your new games before shelving them and investing your time into BotW. Then in 100 hours, once you're done with Zelda, you'll know which of your other games you'll be in the mood for.

Definitely finish Metroid first, once you start either Odyssey or BotW it is going to be real hard to put them down for a long while. I say this from personal experience lol, and I really like the new Metroid, but man, Odyssey, I just couldn't pull myself away from that game.
