The real top 10 is probably sequels to PSVita loli games.

100 games on the switch  :titus

i have a switch and i barely touch it. i hate the standard controllers. want to get back into though so i just got a pro one (p pricey, but hopefully gets me to play it more), and a 4 port gc adapter for $10 for smash bros. gc adapter seems great so far. have a bunch of pretty mint gc controllers incl. 2x wave birds. can't find 1 of the adapters for a bird though.

Switch is certainly my favorite Nintendo system. As someone who doesnít care about typical Nintendo stuff like Mario and Zelda, thereís lots of other stuff.

For me it's largely being able to play games docked and handheld that has kept me purchasing titles for the system, not exclusives.  In some cases, a game might also be on PC, but not Steam (if that matters to you), or it just might be shitty on PC due to performance issues.

I'll take the OP list and expand on it with some Switch-only games and the Wii U port-ups.  Likely am missing some stuff:

Super Mario Odyssey
Super Mario Maker 2
Super Mario 3D All-Stars
Luigi's Mansion 3
1-2 Switch (lol)
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
Hyrule Warriors DX
Cadence Of Hyrule
Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Fire Emblem Warriors
Astral Chain
Bayonetta 2
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Splatoon 2
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition
Xenoblade 2
Xenoblade 2 Torna
Paper Mario The Origami King
Animal Crossing Hew Horizons
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3
ARMS
Ring Fit Adventure
Fitness Boxing
Mario + Rabbids
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
Yoshi's Crafted World
Kirby Star Allies
Mario Tennis Aces
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
RXN -Raijin-
Fast RMX
Sega Ages Virtua Racing
Tetris 99
Deadly Premonition 2
The Legend Of Dark Witch ("HD remastered" on Switch)
Sweet Witches
Gal Metal
Cytus Alpha
Golf Story
Pokemon Let's Go
Pokemon Sword/Shield
Pokken Fighters DX
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX
Ninjala
Picross S

Black Future '88
Shinsekai In The Depths
Senran Kagura Peachball
Senran Kagura Reflexions

i mean, the 1st party stuff is obvious but a few of those look interesting to me. i guess i've always been interested in astral chain, but fast rmx looks good too :p have you played ARMs? looks dumb af, in a good way.

played xenoblade 1 on wii years ago and have no interest in the sequels by the look of them tbqh. recommending senran kagura :lol  :shaqc

Fast RMX is still fantastic!  Great arcade-style racer. 

Had a lot of fun with ARMS and hope it gets a sequel one day.  I played it way more than Smash, lol.  It can be played with the joycons and some waggle-style stuff, but thankfully you can turn all that off and play it normally. 

recommending senran kagura :lol  :shaqc

Peach Ball is good shit!

We've picked up Animal Crossing and Pokemon Sword for the kid, Super Mario U Deluxe for the family, and I'd love to get Odyssey, BotW, Xenoblade, Astral Chain and Daemon X Machina.

Gonna give another rec for Octopath. I know a lot of people were disappointed in that the dungeons were a bit formulaic in design, and that the characters don't interact with each other... but the graphic style, music, and especially battle system, were all fantastic. I think people were expecting it to be like a new FF6 but instead it was more like Romancing SaGa or Live A Live...

I had fun with it but there are some flaws - like the pointless fetch quests (including a whole level filled with one) and 30 fps. The soundtrack slaps tho:

I thought it was ok too, but really lacked focus. They clearly wanted some non-combat sections, but honestly the writing and scenario were so horrible, it just sucked. Level design and art for the combat areas was also dogshit.

Basically they needed to remove all the NPC and investigation garbage and spawn enemies in the city areas to let us fight more often. And who the fuck asked for a silent anime sex doll protagonist? Especially with such a focus on these melodramatic anime cutscenes and your character just standing there silently in their party city pink wig like  :pika

You should check out both Bayo 2 and Astral Chain.  Both are worth a try for sure and both are going to be up there in price.  Likely will be easier to get UK versions if you want physical copies.

Gamefly has AC for $45, but it seems too damn high for an older game. Clearly I'm not brainwashed by Nintendo. Yet.

You're not going to see big price drops happen anytime soon with some of these games, plus the Switch being big with collectors means some games will just keep going up in price once stock from bigger retailers is depleted.
