Over the past few months deciding which games to purchase on the Switch has become a challenge.

Game after game is coming out. And while I've bought a decent amount of recent games, there are still several on my radar. Right now I'm debating if I want to get Dragon Quest XI S this week, but at the same time, games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Maker 2, and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 3 beckon. Cuphead is even on sale, so there is the temptation to try 2-playering it with my buddy.

It's feeling like the season for some co-op games tbh. Maybe that's how I'll decide what to buy for now. How is everyone else handling the Fall abundance?

It’s really a good and bad thing. There’s bound to be plenty of game selection, which is good. However, you should be aware that the Switch is a money drain. There are around 20/30 games being released every week.

I don’t have a Switch(yet), but what I would do is get the games that are the most important to me. Not necessarily games that I want to test out. So if Dragon Quest if of top tier importance, I would put it ahead of....let’s just use super Mario odyssey as an example. (As bad as an example that may be, it’s probably a good game.)

I just got my Switch (the yellow lite version BTW), so I'm pretty excited yet daunted by the library so far. Right now I only have Minecraft, Stardew Valley, and Pokemon Let's Go Eevee, which will have to do me until November, though.

Dragon Quest XI will keep you busy for quite a long time. Then again, so will Mario Maker.

MK8 Deluxe is fun but I smashed through all that content in a few days. Still fun to play with friends, though I can't really recommend it with a Switch Lite. You really need to hook it up to the big screen and at least give each person a joycon. The joycons are pretty terrible though so get some 8BitDo SN30 Pro+ controllers (yes they are better than Nintendo's Pro controller).

Other games that I recommend:

  • Slay The Spire
  • Dead Cells
  • Stardew Valley

@Ovirew: If you're interested in looking for co-op games, I highly recommend Overcooked/Overcooked 2.

On the other hand, I haven't bought any Switch games in a while. Still wanting to play BotW but I'll mainly be just waiting for AC New Horizons.

Hope some Switch owners give Divinity Original Sin II a try, truly a great RPG.

I have it on P.C. yet will eventually play it portable as well, should make for a greater coop adventure.
