  2. This list shows how wrong 95% of the people on this website are , my points have been proven time and and time again. Nintendo is a great company don’t get me wrong but first party isn’t what it used to be and REAL third party is non existent. I’m sure people are gonna hate me for this again , and throw all there typical awnsers out there again, but I really don’t care guys , cause I know your wrong the facts and numbers say it all really. Sure the Switch will sell great to the casuals and people who actually care about the portable part , but for me as a core gamer Nintendo has been Death since the day the announced the WII. Anyway have fun with your games guys , ill be enjoying all these amazing titles on another platform wich is lost money for Nintendo if you ask me. My Nintendo fanboy day’s are over i’m afraid , one day some of you will see the light aswell , I used to be just like you people 10 years ago so not all is lost for you kids.

    1. Ok… Anyway I recently played Hollow Knight on Switch and currently playing Wolfenstein 2. I’m enjoying the motion control option. What’s everyone else playing?

  3. Resident Evil 2 remake has been a huge expectation for awhile for many people. Of course it was going to win Best of Show somewhere. Just like Breath of the Wild did last year. I’d like to know who the runner-up is, though.
