So, like many of you, I picked up a switch. At the time, it seemed like a great idea, right? New Mario/Zelda/Metroid/Animal Crossing/Pokemon, and all in modern HD resolutions? What was NOT good about that?
So, I've had the Switch maybe...a year now? I bought it for £350 with BOTW/Odyssey/MK8 Deluxe and a Pro Controller. It was a wonderful deal that I scooped up on Ebay as soon as I saw it.
One year later, I've played less than a handful of games on it. I did the entirety of Odyssey, which was remarkable and a LOT of fun. I played Smash until I unlocked everyone, did maybe....5 matches online with discord pals, then never touched it again, and I did the first TINY bit of BOTW. I did the first two temples, unlocking both bomb types, then I had to go to a Mountain or a Desert. I fell in a lake, died of it being too cold, and....I'm sorry to say this, I never picked it up again.
In my lifetime, I've played a LOT of Zelda games. Infact, nearly all of them (with a preference for Handheld ones...but that's another thread I'll make in 5 minutes). But BOTW just...I dunno man. I just bounced RIGHT off it. Someone please tell me it picks up?
I also did the first 2 hours of XBC2, right up to the save before you go in the big ship, and then I...never picked it back up.
I did the first 2 missions of Wargroove, expecting it to REALLY set a fire under my butt. I never picked it up.
Tell me friends, what am I doing wrong here? I also have a PS4 Pro, and a high spec PC, which admittedly, is where I spend most of my time. I have a sneaking suspicion why I'm not playing the Switch over PC, and I think it might be Discord. When I'm on my PC, I can have DC on my second screen, talking to my friends at any moment. I think a large part of me getting older has been needing more interaction, as my work life is playing with kids all day. A great job, but not very stimulating for the mind.
Please, tell me friends. Has anyone else had this problem with the Switch? I walk to work, and I don't commute, so I don't get the chance to play it on a bus. Not that I would, cause I'd get mugged in 5 minutes.
