I'm not really one for console gaming anymore, I sold of quite a bit of my retro collection a few years back (NES, SNES, megadrive, Dreamcast) alhough I did keep the consoles and a few games for each one.

I bought a Switch 2 months or so ago and I'm suddenly completely obsessed, mostly with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! I totally suck at it but it's so addictive. Anyone else here got a Switch and what games are you playing at the moment?

Switch is awesome, one of my all time favourites! In terms of games I’m currently playing the Sega Ages version of Phantasy Star.

The must have stuff is all the obvious Nintendo games, Mario Odyssey, Zelda, Mario Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Smash Bros, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze but I’d also recommend Diablo 3, Okami HD , Octopath Traveller, Dead Cells, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 etc etc :)

@ronsplooter It's quickly becoming one of my all time favourites too! I've got Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart, Pokémon let's go and Zelda so far and a few indie games. I remember playing Okami on the PS2, what a game! Had no idea it was on the Switch, that might be my next game then

As I mentioned at your do, I have a Switch and Fortnite is my guilty pleasure. I have also enjoyed BoTW, Mario Odyssey (although not my favourite Mario game by a long shot) and Yoku's Island Express (until I got confused about where to go). Tropical Freeze is good if you like 2D platformers but I have that on Wii U.

Tetris 99 is just a little bit addictive. I thought I was quite good at Tetris but I've realised I have a lot to learn (especially mastering T-spins).

@insx What's your friend code I'll have to add you! I kinda laughed at Tetris 99 and was getting ready to palm it off but I played 8 or so games and really enjoyed it. Hopefully nintendo will release updates to it as add more modes

Got to the last boss on Mario vs Rabbids and by god is it cheap with how randomly things can go wrong through no fault of your own. Was enjoying the game a lot until now

Is this the Gold version? I haven't got this yet but hear the extra DLC in Gold is well worth it.

Currently playing; Yoshis Crafted World (demo) nice and gentle and not too challenging for me :)
No not the gold, just normal as it was on sale over Christmas
Is the demo on the eshop? Have ordered the game for the wifes birthday as she loved Wooly World on the Wii U

@kevlar do it you'll love it! I don't play anything else anymore, can't remember when I last touched my Xbox. I'm also very excited for Yoshi, must of played that free demo level 5 times now 😂
