Zelda > Mario on switch, but I can see people picking Mario, it's much easier to get into and you can play it in 10 minute chunks and still enjoy it. Zelda takes more of your time, or at least more continual gaming chunks.
I do think Zelda gets the Nintendo magic best though and honestly would say it's prob the most magic Nintendo have given us since A Link to the past.
Ocarina Of Time > A Link To The Past

lol I haven't played it since probably 2002? But I've played that game start to finish probably 20+ times.
I recommend not playing it again, you'll prob cry lol
The same is true with Goldeneye, the controls are horrendous when you're used to today's standard dual analogs.

Yeah I have gone back and played that, because for some dumb reason girls LOVE Goldeneye on N64. Game sucks so bad now, but dual KLOBBs is still the GOAT

Played Link to the Past recently on the SNES mini I still like the game my only problem was the controls. Would probably play better on the Switch I saw it on the free SNES games that come with the Online subscription.

I haven’t played Ocarina of Time or Goldeneye since way back in the day. I’d like to play OOT again can you get it on Switch? I’ve seen it cheap for my sons 3DS almost bought it a couple times.

Titan Quest is a gem! I can't believe I never played this before, it's basically Diablo 2.5 in ancient Greece. On digital sale atm (at least here) .

I saw it on sale here too. I remember it being on PC years ago. Might give it a go after I’m done with Torchlight 2. I just wasn’t sure how good it was.

Been playing about 6 hours, it feels very much like diablo 2, I like the more realistic artstyle compared to diablo 3 that titan quest and D2 is going for. D3 feels to much WoW imo.

So that B2G1 deal at Target wasn't for any of the games I wanted to buy, so I ended up just buying Smash Brothers Ultimate on the E-Shop yesterday. Think I'll buy Mario Galaxy next and then call it until next paycheck (have some work I need done on my car).

But I do <3 my Switch. That seamless transition from Docked to Handheld mode is incredible.

Yeah I was surprised how much I love the thing. Well worth it. Not sure how long the catalog of games will keep me going (I’ve seen a lot I want to try) but my wife and kids play it daily.

Yeah I could see that. Mostly got it for exclusives and for entertainment purposes. It's just nice to be able to play Nintendo games for the first time since......2007?

Yeah, it's prob the most played Nintendo console ever for me, they should keep this handheld/docked combo for next gen too. Imagine a ps4 specced switch for next gen, would be pretty amazing.

I haven’t played any newer Nintendo games since around the time of the Wii. Yes I hope they keep this set up (console/handheld) it’s perfect for the Nintendo brand and families.
