So you can buy a 1TB SD card now. The steady march to an all-digital future carries on. Wonder how long until the $450 price tag gets more reasonable.

Is Paladins worth playing?

Folks here like it. Heck, I've probably enjoy it, but its a bit intimidating to jump in this late in the game. With my limited game time lately (ironic considering the hours I posted above) I worry about investing time on a game that would require a large investment time to pickup and get decent at.

It's alright but Warframe is my preferred f2p game.

I'd probably hop on more often with Mop it Up if 1TB SD cards were more affordable but I just can't justify the space for it.

Also I suck ass at Paladins.

I splurged on a 512gb card late last year so I finally redownloaded Warframe, but like Paladins and other persistent competitive online games I've hesitated to dive back in with them.

Is Paladins worth playing?
If you're interested in a team shooter then yeah it's worth a shot. There's a fair amount of creativity with its various characters. It can be a bit tough to get started with the game since the Switch version doesn't have the tutorial and it throws a bunch of things at you, though I'd say the game isn't quite as complicated as it first seems. The opponents will also be AI until you reach account level 5, so that provides some practice at least.

1. Minecraft (which I play with my retired father on his personal server, where no kids are allowed. I kinda like the irony there) [320 hours]
The last couple times I saw you online, I didn't find a world open from you, so I guess this explains it. I suppose it was probably for the better I couldn't join anyway.

Paladins no longer shows in my All Software menu since I uninstalled it yet a few of the games on that list aren't currently installed either.
Did you archive it or totally delete it? If you delete something then its icon will also disappear, whereas archiving something deletes the data but keeps the icon on the Home menu.

1. Overwatch
Wow, this became your number 1 game so quickly? Crazy!

My list is not all that impressive. Switch has yet to really grab me and keep me checking in or playing on it. Still 3DS/DS strong with a bit of GameCube and Wii/Wii U mixed in. Right now, my list is:

1. Zelda: Breath of the Wild
2. Super Mario Odyssey
3. SNES - Nintendo Switch Online
4. Tetris 99
5. Untitled Goose Game
6. Super Mario Party
7. ARMS
8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
9. Yooka-Laylee
10. Super Kirby Clash
11. Snipperclips Plus
12. 1-2-Switch
13. Mario Tennis Aces
14. Super Bomberman R
15. Splatoon 2

That's it. I've got some titles after that I just popped in the system to make sure the cartridge worked.

BotW at number 1 is totally misleading as well. Switch says 85 hours but I maybe have played 1 hour of that. That time all came from when I lent the system to my cousin so he could play the game and that's mainly his time there. Super Mario Odyssey is my true number 1 at 70 hours or more. SNES online has 30 hours or more and Tetris 99 has 15 hours or more. Goose Game is 5 hours or more which surprises me. It feels like I've played it longer than that but I guess it just really left an impression when playing it. That's my top 5 and obviously my overall hours per game are dropping. Currently I'm playing Yooka-Laylee so that number will go up. Yet, even there, Yooka-Laylee is currently losing the battle to my 3DS and finally playing Chrono Trigger for the first time. Ironically, part of that might be that I'm not taking advantage of the Switch's portability and mainly using it as a console. So, I might take the 3DS to work for lunch breaks or play awhile in bed. But the Switch is only when I'm home and ready to spend some time locked on the couch to play it because I've grown so use to the pro controller. I did try using the Switch in handheld while on a break at the end of December and playing Super Metroid a bit on it but I prefer putting the picture on the big screen when I can so I shy off from bothering with the portability. Maybe I need to change my mindset.

This should be interesting to see.

1.  Super Smash Bros Ultimate
2.  Hollow Knight
3.  Dark Souls Remastered
4.  Mega Man X Collection 2
5.  Super Mario Odyssey
6.  Mega Man X Collection 1
7.  Man Man Legacy Collection 1
8.  Kirby Star Allies
9.  NES - Nintendo Switch Online
10.  Super Mario Maker 2
11.  Doom 2
12.  Mega Man 11
13.  Blaster Master Zero
14.  Doom 1
15.  Super Meat Boy
16.  Famicom - Nintendo Switch Online
17.  Mega Man Legacy Collection 2
18.  Volgarr the Viking
19.  Sonic Mania
20.  Castlevania Anniversary Collection
21.  Odallus: The Dark Call
22.  Cuphead
23.  Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon
24.  Blaster Master Zero 2
25.  Axiom Verge


Well number one shouldn't be a surprise, Smash Bros almost always comes in at number one each generation.  Hollow Knight and Dark Souls right behind it make sense since both are pretty long games with challenging content.  Mega Man X Collection 2 is kind of surprising since this is the collection with X6 and X7.  Of course I ended up enjoying X6 for a variety of reasons even though it was a terribly designed game.  Still, it's crazy I put more hours into it then Mario Odyssey.

Every thing else makes sense, I'm a huge 2D lover that's still living in the late 80's/early 90's.

Ohhh. I always wondered what the point of achiving something was. Yeah, had deleted it.

With the news that Animal Crossing's save file will be tied to the system and can't be transferred, I'm seriously considering buying a Switch Lite ahead of that. I've been tempted for a while as someone who barely ever plays on the TV, and this seems like the point where I either take the plunge or decide to stick with what I have for good. What do people here who have a Lite think about it?

My wife has a Switch lite.  It definitely feels more comfy to me in my hands, the shape itself is more comfortable to hold.  Caveat - I don't have big hands.

I use Switch in docked mode enough to not transition over to a lite though.

I just don't see any reason to get the worse revision of the Switch.

Once the hypothetical Pro model comes out i'll probably upgrade to that and homebrew the one i have to hell and back but the lite just hasn't tempted me.

That's a good point. The launch model has an unpach-able exploit so those are smart to hang on to.

I know the Lite was made for mobile only players, but I would be down to buy a smaller one for portable play if I could dock it still. Really, I wish that our accounts were truly digital and we could just swap between consoles to our hearts content for all games. I could see myself going 100% digital if that were a reality.

My list kind of surprised me.  Zelda not so much, but I forgot about how much time I sank into BotW.  Also surprised to see Let's Go Pikachu in the top ten, since I didn't even bother to beat it, lol.  I think a lot of that time was moving Meltan from Pokemon Go.  Seeing DQ: Builders just reminded me that I have to actually play the sequel (which I already bought).  Also, MK8D edged out Tetris 99 because my friend was convinced he could beat me at it.
