Now the Switch is out, I have to admit I'm irritated by the lack of content on the eShop and in general. I get that there's a strategy in play for Nintendo, but recently I've been thinking about so many great little titles (particularly from Steam) that would suit the Switch down to the ground.
It got me thinking - what games do you think are ideal for the Switch?
I was introduced to this by family a while back and its an excellent little indie game on PC (I'm reviewing it currently) - it's a simple top-down game where you control a chef (or two) - washing dishes, chopping ingredients, cooking and managing various elements. It's assessable from the off and a fantastic two-player game to use with the Joycon.
This just strikes me as the sort of game I always imagined the Switch would have in abundance at launch. Old, relatively simple and self-contained indies which have long since flourished on Steam. If the system is so straightforward to develop for, why haven't these things started to pop up? And furthermore, where are the announcements?
What's with the lack of retro games on the eShop? Again, I imagined loads of Nintendo's close allies, like SEGA, to be piling the store with appealing content that hasn't already been over-sold in downloadable form. For me Sonic R would fit the bill, it's not a mega-drive era game that's been resold hundreds of times, and its actually hard to come by for PC and other current platforms.
A hugely popular XBL and PSN title, again perfect for the Switch. Where are these types of games? Will they ever make it? Release it on the eShop or as a full priced game (if it has all the DLC and online features) and surely it'd be a big success.
In addition to games you think suit the Switch. Are you satisfied with the content available for the system thus far? Is anyone else a little concerned about the lack of of range for downloadable content? Or do you feel it will come in time?
