  1. Snipperclips is a fun. I love how they added the random shapes it makes it an entirely new game, plus different per person you play with 😁😊. Overcooked I absolutely love but after you 3 starred everything there isn’t much to do afterwards

  2. WTF is this list? 80% of these nobody cares about and I can get behind Sonic Mania. But..the fuck? I’ve never heard of these games, not even in the news/eShop section.

    1. If you haven‘t herd about Night in the Woods, Rocket League, Steamworld DIG 2, Celeste, Snipperclips, Stardew Valley or Cave story, then you might limit yourself to only play the commercially bigger advertised games that also get a physical copy. But sorry to say, but these games are kinda popular among people who already know what to expect from common AAA stuff.

      1. Rocket League ain’t an unknown indie. In fact, I love that game. Snipperclips I’ve heard of but don’t really care. Steamworld I’ve heard and, like Snipperclips, eh. I expect something bigger than most of these, like Rocket League.
