  17. Marlena Gutshall on March 5, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    My number one game hands down is Mario Maker 2. That is the only amazing game that I have come across so far that literally has unlimited content. This game will never die. Also, the MM2 community is the best community out there…

    Convince me otherwise

  26. oziel rodriguez on March 5, 2020 at 2:23 pm

  27. Asriel Dreemurr on March 5, 2020 at 2:23 pm

  28. Dana Adalaide on March 5, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    Ori and the Blind Forest.. What a load of crap that game is, how did it get 9/10?

  29. Chevifier on March 5, 2020 at 2:26 pm

    I just got hellblade while watching this. I ment to get it on other systems after watching all the positive reviews back then. But this video reminded me its on switch.

  30. Trevor Thornton on March 5, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    smash bros

  31. Alagathevictor on March 5, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    Most of these games are not Switch exclusives! There really is no reason to get a Switch when you can get all these games for Xbox One, PS4 and also PC

  32. Hollow Souls on March 5, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    I’m so tempted to get a switch for the mobility, but I’m just not into "mario" type games (nothing wrong with them, just not my thing). I see games like Dark Souls, Bloodstained, and Hellblade are all titles that have been ported over… but that’s just a fraction of what I play. Plus, I can pick up titles on Steam summer sales for almost nothing.

    But, damm the Switch is so tempting.

  33. phaltar on March 5, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    You should have put Zelda breath of the wild

  34. Tanya Packham on March 5, 2020 at 2:28 pm

    Why was breath of the wild not here same with mario oddysy and shovel knight.

  35. tsdf yjhyty on March 5, 2020 at 2:28 pm

    why do i get it for my switch when i have it for my xbox.

  36. Christopher Mera on March 5, 2020 at 2:29 pm

    Where the f*ck is breath of the wild

  37. Mohammed Hafiz on March 5, 2020 at 2:34 pm

    I started regretting buying this console..

  38. DN on March 5, 2020 at 2:35 pm

    Alien isolation looks better on switch than ps4 or xbox…..Riiiiiiiiiight. I have a switch as well but If I wanted to play a game like that I’d play it on console or pc first unless it was a switch exclusive

  39. efepro 343 on March 5, 2020 at 2:37 pm

    Where is fortnite

  40. Internet Funeral on March 5, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    by far the BEST compilation oh my gosh! most of the compilation videos almost made me regret buying the switch but you turned my brain 180 and now i want to buy all of the games AHHH

  41. Lucky pasta gaming Luke on March 5, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    dude I can’t believe you didn’t include Zelda breath of the wild! Bro

  42. Yuri Andrade on March 5, 2020 at 2:42 pm

    Hello there lovely people!

  43. bomic bon on March 5, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    I might have to buy a switch

  44. Braxton McCabe on March 5, 2020 at 2:44 pm

    Guys, serious question. Should I get Crash Bandicoot or Dark Souls for my swicth? I haven’t played either, but I really wanna play both, I would rather get both, but since I’m also trying to pre order The Last of Us Part 2… I would rather only get one. I cant find anything on reddit or from my friends, so this was my best option, please give me your opinion. Idc about which ones more fun or has more story, just whichever one you think would be a better buy.

  45. Raul De Leon on March 5, 2020 at 2:45 pm

    Only one that caught my eye was luigis mansión. Good thing I didn’t buy a switch

  46. Darrell Covello on March 5, 2020 at 2:50 pm

    "Hand-animated… animations… "
