I disagree. There's too many games on the Nintendo Switch, they should take some away IMO.

I want the green/pink Joy-Cons, but they're continuously sold out on Play-Asia and massively marked up on Amazon.

I imported from Amazon uk through a freight forwarder, ended up paying less than Play Asia was charging.

I had some friends over and we played Snipperclips as the 4 of us it was very fun. Having two Joy-Con sets is really great for having fun with friends on the Switch because you can play 2-player games with 2 full-size controllers (provided you get the grip thing) and then snap out for 4 uniform controllers for 4 player mode like in Mario Kart.

In other words, Switch is really great and I want more games.

They should just remove all the games. They just distract people from the console itself.

I actually know a lot of people that rarely play docked. I prefer to play docked but I spend a lot more time playing handheld. When I'm docked it's 100% pro controller

My two cents Re: pro controller chat

The d pad is bad. It makes Tetris bad.

Most games don't really need that level of d pad precision if they use it at all.

The pro controller is amazingly good for any game that doesn't need Tetris-like d pad precision.

I'm glad I bought mine. It has made Zelda and Splatoon a joy to play.

Tetris, All Fighting Games (bit of an issue if you're buying anything Neo Geo)

It's actually dissapointing how lovely something like Garou is with the controller

I very rarely play docked, since I nearly always play it in bed or when work-travelling. When I do it is Pro Controller all the way.

If you mean Melbourne, Australia, good luck with getting a seat in peak-hour public transport unless you're way the hell out in the suburbs or getting on at Flinders St in the afternoon/evening. 5pm trains are often sardine-time.

The pendulum of the mind alternates between sense and nonsense

How do gamers play so many games.

I bought a Switch and Zelda like most people, I have to this day barely made it to that town in the upper right corner of the map. Like the entire map is still untouched. I bought Arms and before I could get anywhere in it, I bought Splatoon 2.

Now in a week that Rabbids game is going to drop. After I finish not getting anywhere in that I'm sure there will be another game I want to play. There is not enough time to play games. I still haven't beaten a link between worlds on 3ds.

But I come online and people are complaining about not enough games to play. I just have a Switch and it's plenty man.

I would say play so many games necessarily, but certainly purchase many I've already cultivated a backlog on the Switch. Which wouldn't reflect so poorly on me if I'd not also developed a *heaving* great backlog on PC and PS4 too.

I understand what you mean. I could play the same game for at least 3 months before I'm fully finished with it, and then I'll turn to see people are done with a game not even 2 weeks later.

In my view, you'd just need to realize that a bunch of other people don't have the same playing preferences that you might have. A lot of other players have more free time in a week, but maybe you don't. Some other players like to play multiple things simultaneously, but maybe you like to focus on 1 thing for a while.

So buy and play games to fit your own pace; nothing wrong with waiting till later to buy/play it. There are multiple Switch games I still haven't bought because I already know I can't put in the time/interest into it, but may get to later on. The people who buy new games all the time and still complain just have different lifestyles, so I wouldn't give them much attention. If the Switch's schedule works fine for you, then just scroll past those complaints.

edit: Alternative argument, people who complain "there aren't enough games" really mean "there aren't enough games that I like/want." And that's a completely different and subjective issue.

I'm beginning to think the later pro controllers might have better dpads because I was playing tetris earlier and ut was perfectly fine. I had been afraid to use it because of all the stuff I heard about the dpad being bad but it wasn't! I bought the pro controller around the release of splatoon for context
