Happy Birthday!

Not a good decision... YL is a nostalgia driven game and - while I like it - not as good as Horizon IMHO...

Any tips on a good story-driven RPG?

Thanks mate! It's actually tomorrow :)

I'm sure I'll enjoy YL as I love those games, but yes, I'm also sure Horizon is better. I didn't get it for the price reason I mentioned. I'll just buy it online in a couple of months.

Tbh I'm more looking forward to Monster Hunter and will probably start that one first. Don't think its story is anything to write home about though.

There's Bloodborne on PS+ this month. Not sure how RPG-ish it is.

Not so much :D
But a good game nonetheless...

I‘m done with Zelda (and also Mario Odyssey) - and while I liked both I‘m not sure there’s much more to expect from a Nintendo console...
I still have the HZD and South Park DLCs and a few games nit from the top shelf... But I kinda crave some high profile game...

The problem with the Switch is that most of the quality games it seems to be getting are on other platforms. That's a big improvement for Nintendo compared to past consoles (I think) but for those like us who already own another console it's just not worth it.

I'd really like to try some of the games like Zelda (even older ones) but I'm just not tempted to buy a Switch at all. For that price I'd probably be better off getting PS VR, which I don't plan to do for now either.

What about FFXV? It's very different from FF VII (which I think you played) but a very good game. I took my time with it to explore etc instead of always heading for the next quest/sidequest and never got bored. I think there's a version with DLC out now too... The first DLC wasn't good and the second one is very different from the game but enjoyable. The third one I haven't played but it was well received I think

Yeah well in a way (arguably!) there’s no denying Nintendo makes the best games... Personally I would’ve liked a little more traditional Zelda and definitely more levels/worlds for the Mario game, but they’re still great games...
It’s just there’s too few of them... They dropped the WiiU basically two years before the Switch release to prepare games, but as of now, there’s no real reason to get one for me except Mario (Zelda was also on WiiU - since I didn’t own one I got a Switch, but still, I think that’s not much for two years of preparation - shows you there’s not too much to be expected from Nintendo...)...
You just don’t get Nintendo consoles for multi platform games...
And yes, Nintendo hardware is always overpriced...

Thanks for the tip, I‘ll check it out!

Super Smash Bros is coming this year, and a flagship Pokemon RPG probably next year. Good enough for me 8)

Well one (and debatable!) AAA title a year is really not much for a 350€ console that - let’s face it - to be played half-decently needs a pro controller that’s insanely overpriced as well...

Switch is an interesting console.
(I may have already posted something similar to this, so my bad if I'm repeating myself)
I have one - sold my XB1 for it, and don't really regret selling XB1 - but I've always been primarily a Playstation guy.
The "big" games for it are great. BotW and Mario Odyssey are truly special, GOTY contenders any year.
Mario Kart is a lot of fun, even though it's basically just a Wii U port.
But, I've never been much for indie games and I don't care for much multiplayer. so that rules out a big portion of the Nintendo store (indies) and another big title (Splatoon).
Like I said - the big titles are GREAT. BotW is one of my favorite gaming experiences ever. But....all in all I haven't played my switch in ~2 months now and haven't felt much of a desire to.
I'm keeping it around for now with the hopes the library will keep expanding, but between PC and PS4 i hardly have any reason to use it at the moment. The portability aspect is nice, but ultimately meh for me. I play the majority of the time docked on my TV.

Also don’t get the difference between the season pass and the complete season...

I think the season pass is ep. 2 onwards so you save €2 with the complete season (which includes ep. 1)

I wouldn't go for BtS at that price unless you really want a physical copy.

FF15, probably.
