    My wife surprised me this Christmas with a Nintendo Switch. I have Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros. and Breath of the Wild. Think I'm set on games for the foreseeable future so what accessories would you guys recommend?

    Since you have BotW, I would highly recommend getting a Pro controller.

    to follow up on the Pro controller rec, they’re $55 at major retailers which is the lowest I’ve seen them (typically $70)

    Oh and there’s always sales on the eShop. If you go on there and add games to your wishlist, Nintendo will email you whenever they’re on sale

    it’s like free basing impulse buys

    Repeating what others have already said, pro controller worth the purchase if you plan to play on TV.

    Most forget that this thing exists, but have you considered a pro controller?

    So I've had my switch since they came out, and never had a pro-controller until yesterday. Sounds like I'm in for a treat.

    I will stump for Fire Emblem: Three Houses whenever there is a “what would you recommend” post. Loved that game.

    Untitled goose game.

    Also I've never owned a pro controller but I also play a ton on planes so I'm always in handheld mode

    If you play handheld frequently, get the Satisfye grip. It basically makes your Switch feel like a giant controller with a screen in the middle. It’s awesome (just look it up on Amazon).

    I can’t believe this thing is almost 3 years old and they haven’t redesigned the menu interface or added fucking messaging. I love the games on this system but it feels like you’re playing them on a desert island, isolated from the rest of civilization.

    I'm good without messaging. I have enough of that everywhere else. But the menu interface could use a few tweaks or at least multiple options.

    My problem is that devs like Epic figured out a way to implement native voice chat. The people that run the platform can and should have updated the menu system to add a private/party chat function.
    We also should have gotten a folder system and more themes by now.
    Plus they never developed a use for the blue ring on the home button on joycons/pro controller. I believe it was intended for when you got a new private message, which isn’t an option. The only game I’ve seen that makes use of it is Ring Fit Adventure, which sets an alarm to remind you to do a workout. That vibrates the joycons and lights up the home button if you haven’t seen that in action.

    Katana Zero is a lot of fun. Nothing groundbreaking but a colorful polished 2-d action platformer with some cool mechanics

    My gf has a perfectly fine Pokémon edition of the switch. She is still eyeing this despite zero hiccups or need.
