I hate to say it because I think the Switch is an infinitely better system than the Wii was but I get very strong Wii shovelware era vibes from these lists each week.

I don’t want to knock anyone who has made a video game; it’s hard work and I have never done it. But you have to admit that there’s a lot of _junk_ in these releases, too. The barrier for entry on the Switch is so low. Yes, the Wii had WiiWare later in its life but the majority of the games here are only digital and never intended for physical retail so the financial risk of developing and releasing a game today is much much less than it used to be.

I don’t really know what my point is anymore. I guess it’s just to say, how do we find the diamonds in the rough these days?

Word-of-mouth I guess. I only found out about Celeste for example after I saw some Youtuber play it.
