How do we not have a Nintendo Switch thread??!?

Nintendo Switch Thread!

Who's got one, what games do you recommend (other than the obvious Zelda, Mario, Mario Kart)?

What accessories do you have, colours, options.

Do you use it mostly docked or the convenient portable/handheld option?

I'll be honest, I don't own one myself yet but have been keeping my eye out on second hand ones and hoping to get one soon. Hopefully it will see more action than my long neglected list of consoles, I'm expecting the portable aspect to help with that and means I can have my first Nintendo system since my reliable DS Lite.

The kids have got one over at their grandma's.  Personally I think it's a bit overpriced at the moment for what it is.  The controllers are really small (even in my tiny girl-like hands) and one of then has the analog stick right in the middle which some have found uncomfortable.  The only play it in docked mode as it's in a play room hooked up to a 32" tv and play things like Mario Kart, Mario Odyssey and 1 2 switch (which is a good laugh after a few drinks, milk that cow!).

I haven't really taken much notice of graphical quality as the stuff they play is just typical Nintendo cuteness.

Just how old are the kids?  :lol:

Hmm. I probably can't write that on forums. Sorry if it ends up on a watch list..

I'm very interested in local multiplayer and co-op with one or two consoles. Other than Mario Kart the only one I've played is Snipper Clippers.

There are a good few games that look really interesting here; I haven't played Mark of the Ninja, Bomb Chicken looks fun, Light Fall as well, and Pode. Maybe Bad North and I've wanted to play the Banner Saga games but not go to them on PC.

Some nice independent games there, and a few exclusives.
