I haven't bought a game since Mario Odyssey came out, nor do I plan to other than Octopath Traveler (and Metroid Prime 4 when it finally comes out in 2035). Does anyone else feel like the Switch is.... (and I know it's not actually) dying?.. I mean, I know the 3ds is many years old and it's on its way out, so it's understandable, but the Switch kinda feels the same as the 3ds now. Yes I know about Kirby and Yoshi. Kirby will be a nice distraction and Yoshi will disappoint like it always does since none of them can live up to the snes title (although woolly was ok).
Contrast to the ps4 and pc which comes out with must have games at a rate that I can't even keep up with. I often find myself thinking "Man I really want to play my switch", then I pick it up, turn it on, and remember there's not much to play if I'm not in the mood for Mario or Zelda.
I dunno, I expect I'm gonna get chewed up in the replies, and I expect those who don't chew me up will post all of the hundreds of games coming to the Switch that I have less than zero interest in. It just seems so full of shovelware now, games to buy on a rainy day when there's nothing better to play.
I need a game to come out that puts all other games on my backlog. Not a port, not an indie, something that will make me put everything else down because it's so good it needs all my attention. Octopath Traveler will fill that role, but what now until then?
I kinda feel the same way, but at this time of the year this is kinda normal, I gotta commend Sony tho, for having such a good lineup a this time of the year, still nothing that makes me wanna buy a PS4 that badly, besides, I'm backtracking a little on my Switch, Wii U and 3DS, still got plenty of games to try out.
There's nothing really. Nothing good released since MH World on PS4 either. God of War still looks boring af, Ni No Kuni II was a large disappointment, Far Cry is boring... This is a huge drought for all of gaming overall.
If RDR came out at this time, gaming would be great.. but now it's delayed to October where COD, Smash, Fire Emblem, and maybe Pokemon are going to fill up the 2nd half.
Final Fantasy IX is the biggest garbage game ever created.
