A lot of the best N64 games have very worthy sequels/successors on the switch:

Mario 64 -> Mario Odyssey

Ocarina of Time -> Breath of the Wild

Smash Bros -> Smash Bros Ultimate

Mario Kart 64 -> Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Banjo-Kazooie -> A Hat in Time

Mario Tennis -> Mario Tennis Aces

Pokemon Snap -> New Pokemon Snap

Mario Party -> Super Mario Party

Harvest Moon 64 -> Stardew Valley

Yoshi's Story -> Yoshi's Crafted World

Whoa I have to check out A Hat in Time - never heard of it but am a huge banjo kazooie fan

If you haven’t played it yet, Yooka Laylee on Switch is as close to a remake of Banjo Kazooie as you’ll ever get.

I would argue that Celeste and Hollow Knight give those two games a run for their money.

Celeste and hollow knight aren't switch exclusives though sure he can get them if he doesn't own any other consoles. But it probably isn't worth it if he does.

u/Head_Use8809 Oct 20 '21 edited Oct 20 '21

He said that his switch is the first console that he’s had since the N64, so it’s safe to assume that he doesn’t have any other consoles.

Fire Emblem 3 Houses would like a word.

Edit: also Hades.

u/Maverick8787 Oct 20 '21

In your opinion, why is FE3H at the top of the list? I’ve had it recommended to me but I’m not sure about it.

5

u/BigYonsan Oct 20 '21 edited Oct 21 '21

I beat all but the most annoying challenges in Mario in under 60 hours. I'm just about to complete my first run through of the hardest campaign on the hardest setting without new game plus in Fe3h. I'm about to hit 700 (hundred, not a typo) hours in fe. The replayability is huge, the writing is great and the voice acting is spot on on most cases. If you like strategy games and either like or don't mind anime storytelling, it's a top pick over Mario in my opinion.

I'll throw in an edit here: Mario is still worth your money. It's not a bad game. Between Zelda, Mario and Fire Emblem though, I'd pick Zelda if I could only get one. If I had two picks though, it's 3 houses and breath of the wild, then Mario.

u/Waterfish3333 Oct 20 '21

Second this. Odyssey is an amazing game, and I’d recommend first because it also helps introduce some console features (taking screenshots, motion controls.)

That being said, I personally played with a pro controller and highly recommend that over the joycons, despite what the load screen says.

16

u/Spindrune Oct 20 '21

Joycons kind of suck.

11

u/TravelAdvanced Oct 20 '21

Really suck. Have had 3.5 pairs- two that came with system in 2018 and one recent. One of the first two pairs developed very bad drift. Replaced that bad one. Then both from that pair developed drift. Got a new pair within the last month or so. It's starting to drift ever so slightly. So that's 4 out of 7 joy cons drifting. Un-fucking-believable.

6

u/purpldevl Oct 20 '21

Some dude the other day in r/NintendoSwitch tried using the argument that because his two sets of Joycon never had drift, that it meant it wasn't that big of a deal... even though almost everyone in the thread he was replying to had stated the number of Joycons they've purchased and the number of Joycons that were drifting.

Man. I was really excited for hades. I put about 10 hours in but never really loved it, and never got the urge to pick it back up. I got the the last fight and just couldn’t keep going. I did have 10 hours of fun but just didn’t click for me the way I was hoping.

8

u/SigaVa Oct 20 '21

I really like it. It kind of ebbs between grind and just ripping through stuff, both of which are satisfying. And theres a ton of "end game" type content. Also, the game is just so well produced - the feel, visuals, dialogue, all top notch.

Yeah I think my issue was the open world was free but also largely not challenging or interesting to me. I enjoyed the big machine fights and puzzles I did

u/ScarecrowJohnny Oct 20 '21 edited Oct 20 '21

I've played most Zelda games. Wind Waker and BoTW are a tie in my mind for best Zelda games ever. Only thing wrong with BoTW is the lack of "real" dungeons and more unique feeling boss fights. The shrines and boss fights recycle quite a lot from one another. In general the game is more "grindy" than other Zelda titles, but that's also what makes it easily a +100 hour game which is a plus, cause the game is hard to put down. Every corner hides something new for you to discover and the games really does give you a sense of adventure, that few if any titles can rival.

I feel like Zelda is the main reason I have bought any Nintendo console in the past 20 years… Ocarina, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess…

I guess technically my wife got me the Switch as a gift but BOTW is the first game I bought, of course ;)

AND $360? That’s some serious willpower. Add a Pro Controller, carrying case, spare charging battery, etc and I’m sure I payed more than my PS5…

Do your homework on this one. Tons of people says it's amazing.

I picked it up and I just can't slog through it.

About 30 mins in I get bored and out it down.

If you like running around with total freedom, go for it. It's the ultimate sandbox which is probably why it appeals so much to the minecraft generation.

If you prefer a game that's going to keep pushing you along from one objective to the other, forget it.

I personally find the game tedious and boring.

u/mzimmer74 Oct 20 '21

Metroid Dread is a great game, and definitely worth the purchase. However, I'd argue that the "value" of it is far less than BotW or Mario Odyssey. You can easily beat MD in roughly 10 hours. BotW or MO will give much longer game play time. I'd say get MD but only if you have the extra money for multiple games. Just my personal take on it.

By "easily" I don't mean that the game is easy. I mean that it is definitely possible to beat the game around 10 hours. Those 10 hours might not be "easy" hours. :)

u/GutBestueckt69 Oct 21 '21

And here as a Metroid veteran I was very disappointed in the difficulty actually. Not trying to brag (yeah, right) but considering all the hype around how hard it's supposed to be it wasn't even remotely so. Boss attack patterns you figure out fairly quickly and they become trivial fast, the rest of the game isn't any harder either. They should have had Hard Mode be an available option right from the get-go instead of having to unlock it first.

I appreciate the sentiment though and hope that future Metroid installments will orientate themselves on Dread.

Hades. Amazing game insane replayability.

u/invsisble_ghoul Oct 20 '21

It is a Rougelike so you kinda have to replay it to understand the games rng and stuff like that

u/Sigb Oct 20 '21

It has a huge story with like 16 thousand voiced lines, the story is interesting, and fresh. So I have to say Hades is very well worth recommending

u/DNABeast Oct 20 '21

I’ve never really clicked with Roguelikes but I’ve just put around 100 hours into Hades. It’s amazing.

Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, and Metroid Dread are all good single-player games to start your Switch experience with.

If you’re wanting some nice couch multiplayer games as well, Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros are two fun ones to have in your collection to bring out when you have people come over.

Hollow knight, you will not regret it

u/gonzagylot00 Oct 20 '21

Depends on what you like:

Games for a group: Mario Kart, Smash, Warioware

Single player adventures: Breath of the Wild, and Metroid Dread

Excellent Mario Games: Mario Odyssey, Super Mario 3-D world/Bowser's Fury, Mario Golf, and I gotta slot Luigi's mansion in somewhere.

Animal crossing 😊

u/JitteryBendal Oct 20 '21

I would recommend hollow knight. Not a Nintendo exclusive so it’s a little more cost effective and is just a great game that keeps on giving.

Terraria. It’s my go to answer for these questions.

u/RustyShakleferd Oct 20 '21

such an underappreciated game. one of my favorites of the last decade. putting it on the switch store was genius.

5

u/Ok-Huckleberry-207 Oct 20 '21

I have never put so many hours in a game before Terraria. The gameplay is great, the sandbox environment is great and the itemization is astounding.

It’s amazing how impactful finding new items is. A single item can completely change how you play the game!

The mechanics/engineering system is simple to understand, but has an immense complexity in what you can do with it.

It’s an extraordinary game.

Mario odyssey, breath of the wild, animal crossing, Mario golf, and if your into the old stuff getting an online account gives you access to nes and snes games. I believe n64 and genesis games are coming soon also. Also I’m super pumped for my all time favorite game Knights of the Old Republic very soon 😎

u/girhen Oct 20 '21

There are some amazing maps on there. I need to get back to making more. Just wish it was easier to wade through and find what you wanted sometimes.

You know, fair, somewhat difficult, but feels like a classic Mario level, not weird and full of recent gimmicks?

3

u/GutBestueckt69 Oct 21 '21

It's easier to create dull, hard levels they can then watch Youtubers rage at than legitimately good levels that look like they could be straight out of an official Mario game. I used to mod Super Mario World for many years and let me tell you, the amount of work that goes into making a legit good level that is fun to play and also looks good is crazy. I'd love to sit down and try to build a whole world within Mario Maker but man it's difficult. Doesn't help that I'm not the most creative person.

Korg Gadget.

I have had more fun with this than any other game. If you are into music at all its awesome.
