Content of the article: "WSIB as first switch game? (casual)"
I'm working a good temporary job and planning to buy myself a Switch when I'm done. However, since I don't have a consistent source of income after my job ends, I need to figure out which games I should prioritize. Most of what I'm considering are mainstream titles because I'm a super casual gamer (mostly Pokemon and Mario, and a few standouts like Rhythm Heaven), but I get really attached to the games I play. I prefer something with good postgame value that's mildly challenging but not stressful. I also probably will get Nintendo Online but not sure if I'll keep it for more than a year – I don't have anybody to play local multiplayer with so it'd pretty much be my only hope for multiplayer functions.
I should note that while I eventually plan to set up my television to use the Switch as a console, as some games I want are made with the Joycon in mind, I'm likely going to be using it largely as a handheld, so games that function well as handheld games are my priority. Also note this is my first console as I've only ever played with the DS and 3DS – I own a Wii but never got the time or space to set it up.
EDIT: I'm not sure if I'm using the term "casual" 100% correctly, I mean more that I don't go out of my way to engage in competitive scenes, but I do try to complete as much of a game as possible, even if I don't always have the time to do so. I also don't seek out indie games much but if one interests me, I look into it, so I'm cool with those recommendations.
Some games I'm currently considering:
- Animal Crossing New Horizons: While I've never played an AC game before, a lot of people I know are getting into the game and it seems like a good stress relief, even though I'm not sure if there's a challenge to it.
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: I want to do multiplayer with some friends and Twitch streamers I watch. I really enjoyed Mario Kart DS and really want to play other games in the franchise.
- Super Mario Maker 2: I enjoy 2D Mario platformers and have watched a lot of cool LPs of the game, and I want to try the levels myself. I've heard it has a decent story more as well, which is good if I can't use the Online function forever.
- New Super Mario Bros Deluxe: I've played NSMB and NSMB2 and enjoyed them, and would like to go through a NSMB game again. I know it's a very formulaic series, but I liked figuring out the secrets of those games and want to experience new levels.
- Super Mario Odyssey: I played this in Target a few times and it seemed very fun. I need to get a handle on 3D Mario games though.
- Pokemon Sword/Shield: I adore Pokemon, though I wasn't a super big fan of Sun/Moon and I'm not keen on some of the decisions made with this game. Nevertheless, I might want to try it out and play with friends. Not sure if I'll get the DLC.
- Breath of the Wild: Never played a Zelda game but everybody says this is one of the best Switch games so I'm considering it.
- Heave Ho: Saw it on a LP and it looks fun. Cheap puzzle games might be good when I can't afford a big title.
Games I don't think I want:
- Pokemon Mystery Dungeon DX: I enjoy my original Red Rescue Team game well enough, and I don't really want to go through the whole story again.
- Super Smash Bros Ultimate: I'm not big on fighting games, especially multiplayer ones, and my attempts to play the game usually leave me very confused and a tad overwhelmed. If I ever try Smash, I'll probably start with something smaller.
- Undertale: Already own the PC version, though I may get this one for the extra content especially since my gaming PC is out of commission right now.
- Either South Park game: Already own the PC version.
- Why does New Super Mario Bros have no legacy?
- I hate how publishers so often neglect their legacy handheld titles
- WSIB Nintendo Switch games that are good for value?
