Fair enough. There's a ton of great indie/digital games on the Switch too. What genres are you generally interested in?

These days mostly platformers, action-heavy RPGs (nothing turn-based), puzzle games like Inside, shooters. I have a firm no crafting, no grinding policy.

Really I just want games I can jump in and out of quickly. I have like 30-45 minutes per night max to play games, and I hate spending half that time downloading updates, navigating menus, etc.

My brother is coming to visit this weekend to meet the baby and see the house for first time. The way he was talking I'm thinking he might gift me MegaMan 11 as an early birthday present.

Been playing a lot of Ballz lately on the phone. It's weird how I can start a game and hit a zone and suddenly 30 minutes have gone by.

I'm probably late to the game on this one, but I've been playing Elliot Quest lately, which is also another fun platformer/metroidvania type game with some puzzles to solve here and there.

I can vouch for Shovel Knight and Celeste as great platformers. My kid is asking me to get him Dead Cells for his birthday, and I'm looking at Hollow Knight or The Messenger for myself.

That's because they are. I left out a few other gems that have made their way to the Switch that are a bit older or found their initial popularity on other consoles:

Rocket League
Inside
Crash Bandicoot Trilogy Remastered
Gone Home (overrated IMO, but critically acclaimed)
Overcooked

Do you guys play Overcooked with strangers online? Or with your housemates? Or solo?

If I buy this game how am I most likely to enjoy it?
