No one bats an eye when Xbox or PlayStation don't include a pack-in game at launch. They never have. However, I think the Switch should have come with one. Primarily because, let's face it, it is a "bit" gimmicky. Not including a pack-in game forces people to not take a risk on a game like 1-2-Switch which showcases those gimmicky features because A) It's another $50 which isn't cheap and B) They're gonna pick Zelda 9/10 times over such a game
It stings but I'm gonna buy 1-2-Switch. Hoping for a decent amount of fun times with some buddies. Will it justify $50? Idk yet.
