I recently purchased the Bioshock Collection, Catherine Remake, and Okami HD just so I can play them on Switch. I also got them for really cheap, so I didn't care that much about buying them again. But the idea of having them on the go is enticing. I can see myself doing this for other games as well. How about you, SW? What games have you double dipped on so you can play on Switch?

I am not sure why you will pay not only more but double for the worse version of the game. If the Switch started supporting game streaming and cross license, then and only then would it make sense. You buy a game once and play it where ever. 😁

Does remake count?

I wish I could say none but somehow I bought Story of Season: Friends of Mineral Town. Its a near 1 to 1 remake of the PS1/GBA game and I bought it out of nostalgia.

None on Switch, because why would I rebuy a worse version, but I've double dipped on many a top quality game that gets HD remake! Next one will be Mass Effect Trilogy.

I did buy NSMB U double-pack, but that was more convenience than anything, and Breath of the Wild is unquestionably better on the Switch than the Wii U. Other than that, no. The Switch has more than enough games for me not to double-dip, really.

@locopatho: Framerate, mostly. The Wii U version has parts that chug pretty bad, while the Switch version is pretty damned rock solid. Also, the Wii U version requires you to use the GamePad for those puzzles where you roll a ball around a maze, whereas the Switch allows you to use any controller with gyroscope function (like my SN30 Pro+).

None. I skipped Wii-U so all the first party ports were new to me. Then all the ports of of third party games I generally bought on PS4. Exception being Sonic Mania and Rayman Legends as they were kid appropriate and bought on Switch purposefully.

I don't really double-dip but technically I do own two games on Switch that I already own on PC: Assassin's Creed 4 and Rogue.

I got them as a collection for very cheap and decided to buy it since the PC version of 4 runs like the unoptimized horse-shit it is and I was looking into playing it again. Rogue was just an extra.

Also I have Okami HD, I did technically own it on Wii previously but have long since parted ways with it so I wanted to play to it again.

Besides that, nothing. Not really into the double-dipping practice.

Street Fighter II. More than a double dip, really.
And it was straight up a ripoff (The Final Challanger) at £39.99.

Still, got like 50-60 hours out of it.

I technically tripple dipped Bayonetta, but that was mostly because it came with Bayonetta 2. Still, nice to have on the go, and the Nintendo outfits are fun.

Original Doom. Though my pc copy is long gone, this is the second time I bought it.

Games that I have on the Wii and Switch:

- Xenoblade Chronicles

Games that I have on the Wii U and Switch:

- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

- Mario Kart 8

- New Super Mario Bros. U

- Tokyo Mirage Sessions

- Bayonetta 1 + 2

Games that I have on Xbox One and Switch:

- Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 + 2

- Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 + 2

- Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

I already have Dragon Quest XI S Definitive Edition for the Switch currently but will be grabbing the Xbox One version when it comes out in a few weeks so that’ll be a double dip as well.

In terms of the PC version their are multiple releases.

Even when not directly purchasing it.

Like, if you buy Doom 3 BFG, basically re-bought Doom.

Xenoblade chronicles. I have it on the wii but never finished it. it was so long since i played it that i forgot what happened. so i got the Switch version. glad i did too...it's still awesome.

I may get the world ends with you on the switch also. I have it on the DS but its the type of game that would work well on a telly and on a small screen. with a sequel on the way (YAY! Please be good.) i may double dip on this one.

i think thats about it.

I only buy games on Switch if they're not available on better platforms. Recently double dipped for Bayo 2, best version of the game I can get.

Would never buy a multiplat for the system though. The portable aspect isn't my thing, so no point.

Price generally sucks ass as well, at least in the UK.

£29.99 for Resident Evil 4, more than double the price of the PC release.

Yup, that recent Bayo 2 purchase was damn full price lol.

Shouldn't have been surprised, but really wasn't expecting a niche ass game from 2014 to still be $50.

DOOM 3 BFG - haven't gotten far, but it was really cheap. Like 1eur per game cheap.

Hyper Light Drifter - backed the game on PC, but it's just a sweet game to have on Switch

Mario Kart 8, Tropical Freeze, Xenoblade Chronicles, Bayo 2 from past Nintendo systems. Witcher 3, Skyrim, Bioshock Collection, and Alien Isolation. Also a few indies like Inside, Hollow Knight, and Shovel Knight. A couple game collections.

Transistor, Bastion, Shadow Blade Reload all dirt cheap.

It seems to be the same handful of indies that get good deals every few months while everything else is overpriced even when on sale.

Okami HD, Civilization 6, DOOM 1, realMyst Masterpiece Edition. I think that's it - I try not to Double Dip, but I will choose Switch over PC for my only copy in some cases (e.g., with indies that are identical on both, the Switch is a more flexible platform so I'll buy my only copy there - e.g., Into the Breach).

Yeah same here. Some games I'd rather play on Switch because I just think they fit there, and I can bring them with me. Chose Switch as my platform for games like Dead Cells, Hollow Knight, Blasphemous, Streets of Rage 4 and some others.

@uninspiredcup: Honestly, I was kind of surprised when I thought about it. But yeah, I've only actually owned the original floppy disk version. The one you got by mailing Id a $35 check after completing the shareware first act.

The split-screen is what sold me. Figure I'll play this co-op with my kids to introduce them to a piece of gaming history. That is, when they are old enough to stop crying during the "scary" parts of Sofia the First :-\

I never got a Switch, its the first Nintendo home console since the SNES that I haven't bought. I was considering getting one because I wanted to play the better version of BOTW that id already played on my wife's WiiU but I just ended up playing it on PC instead.

Switch version is the same or better in some cases like dragonquest S the xbox one got the switch port of that so don't act there all worse sometimes xbox gets a garbage switch port of a game.

You can play anywhere bathroom outside on the bus on the plane in your hotelroom

you can't do that with xbox garbage.

So many:

  • Skyrim SE
  • Dungeon of the Endless
  • Doom I, II, III, IV
  • Diablo 3
  • Sega Master Collection
  • Binding of Isaac and Afterbirth
  • Into the Breach
  • SuperMario Allstars
  • Bioshock Trilogy
  • Flashback
  • Resident Evil 4
  • Mario Kart 8

These are what I can think of at the top of my head. All but Doom 4 and Diablo are the best versions of each. These are some of my favorite games, I cant believe I have them all portable in the palm of my hands.

I bought a lot of games on Switch that I already owned on other platforms. Even though the Switch versions are usually more expensive and inferior ports, the only reason I buy them is the portability. Being able to play your favorite games anywhere is awesome. Throw a switch in your backpack with a couple Pro controllers, play some Streets of Rage 4 co-op with a buddy in tabletop mode. I will double dip on more games too just because of the portability.
