      1. I dont really give a shit about what other people think. Im 33 years old, been playing video games nearly all my life, and Nintendo has what I need. I play games on other platforms, but Nintendo is always my first choice. People can think what they like, Nintendo makes games that appeal to all ages, and that suits me just fine.

  1. I expected Mario to win best Switch game and maybe best of gamescom award, but definately not the Most Wanted Consumer award.
    Europe is Sony territory, this obviously includes Germany. I know, it’s Mario and Mario is Mario, but that still really surprises me. A couple of years ago, Nintendo even skipped Gamescom.

  2. No surprise. Although I’m very excited for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Metroid. Also going to buy MvC Infinite, but I’m fully ready to be disappointed with that game. Pretty sure the rest of this year is Switch games for me outside of that. Might even pick up Skyrim since I don’t own it on any of my consoles, and haven’t played it on PC in forever. I’d like to show some support to 3rd Parties on Switch. If I hear MarioXRabbids is good, I’ll pick that up too eventually.

  3. Assassin’s Creed Origins is my most wanted with Super Mario Odyssey in second place. October can’t get here soon enough.
