Nintendo Switch was released 2 years ago. Unlike the previous systems where I accumulate about 15 games throughout the system's lifetime, I got 12 (and borrowed one) over just 1½ years, starting from Fire Emblem Warriors.
I like the system's portable design (you actually take the system out instead of having it stream to a portable screen), and its system menu UI is the cleanest I've seen. But on the downside, image and video capture fall behind the PS4, and the Joy-Cons are the least durable controllers I've seen on any Nintendo system.
One thing I find interesting is how not unique its software lineup is. Most games, including some from Nintendo, can be found on other systems. But it also means the system has won me over with its own merits, rather than relying on its games.
I made a video talking about the games I've played on it:
Making this video took me much less effort than the Wii U one, because of the capture function. But since video capture was added in an update, old third-party games may not support it. I had to use my Wii U gameplay for Puyo Puyo Tetris and get Atelier Lydie & Suelle gameplay from elsewhere.
Also, I should have taken more Breath of the Wild videos before returning the game. I couldn't find anything good for use in this video.
My top 3, in order:
(1) Kirby Star Allies (2) Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings (3) Fire Emblem Warriors
nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
