    I went for the oled and wish I had just waited and bought second hand once everyone was selling theirs for the newer model. Its almost always used on my TV, but even if it hadn't been, since when have Nintendo games been about being super beautiful?

    2nd hand v2 is the way I'd go, if you can get a good condition one

    I particularly want to game on the move and when away from home so portability is high for me. OLED made sense so I could maximise that experience.

    The frame rate is good, resolution feels like it could be better but really enjoying it all the same.

    Decided to give Zelda breath of the wild another chance as I bought a new TV and also paid £40+ for the game. Really enjoying it now, I have two divine beast under my belt and slowly moving into the next one. I'm hoping to finish the game in time for the sequel whenever that comes out.

    Picked up Dark Souls Remastered even though have had and completed on PC for ages, not a bad port and still worth it for £17.99, enjoying playing through it again, also the Diablo 2 and 3 double pack for £34.99, though had 3 on PC, I heard the Switch version is pretty good. Those 3 alone are hundreds of hours of gameplay, awesome to have handheld option for those types of game as well.

    Also looking at Tony Hawks 1 and 2 and also Cruisin' Blast, both good deals around £20, finally Monster Boy remake at £8.99, not sure if will get all, but definitely Tony Hawk.

    Is this on the U.K. store, I can only see a full price D3 and discounted D2 can’t see any double pack.

    It's there but I only found it as I searched for Diablo 2 on the store search function, it comes up as Diablo Prime Evil Collection and includes both D2 remake and D3 complete edition that usally goes for £50 alone, you get both for £34.99. Pretty sweet deal.

    I absolutely loved Mario Odyssey, one of my favourite Switch games and I've played Mario games since the Nes, not all love it but it's my favourite 3D Mario game since Mario64. I also got the Mario All Stars pack and replayed Mario64 after that, still holds up and also worth getting as has Mario Sunshine and Mario Galaxy on the same cart.

    I loved Breath of the Wild on WiiU, supposed to be even better on Switch, also highly recommend Dark Souls and the Diablo games as well as Monster Hunter Rise.

    Mario Odyssey it's brilliant. Breath of The Wild is the best Zelda but it can be a bit marmite to some. I think it's also brilliant. Link's Awakening is a remake and its great especially if you prefer the older 2D Zelda's.

    If you want slightly more traditional Mario then Mario 3D World is good. It comes with Bowsers Fury as well

    Mario Odyssey is in my view the best mario game on the switch. Me and my kids have had our monies worth from that.
