I would like "Ultimate Mario Maker"

It would allow you to build Mario levels from Mario Bros pre NES through Super Mario Odyssey.

This alone would be reason enough to buy a Switch, at least for me I would get it.

How about you?

You probably know my answer: Castlevania.. It's pretty obvious that there needs to be Mario and Zelda titles, but I would love to see some old-skool 2D zelda titles as well, something akin to the first one or third one. I'd love to see a remake of Guardian Legend.

This would be a good time to remake Panzer Dragoon Saga too. Supposedly the reason we didn't ever get any new versions of Panzer Dragoon Saga was due to Sega losing the source code to the original. You'd think they could remake it without the source code. If not, people reverse engineer games all of the time.

Lastly, I think that Elemental Gimmick Gear needs either a port or remake AND a sequel.

There is a Castlevania fan game called Simon's Quest reVamped.

See if you like it. At least it can be seen through youtube.

Post your thoughts on the fan game any time. Let's continue.

I guess it's kind of obvious we would like to see variations, sequels, and rereleases of great classic characters, but let's dig further.

What kind of 'new' stuff are you looking for in Switch?

I'm thinking of a console-style, for the big stage, new Etrian Odyssey game. The animation would look better than Rayman, and the music would dwarf Final Fantasy (yes Yuzo is just that good). In this game there would be the same fixins of the handheld- casual or normal mode, grinding through mapped dungeons, dangerous creatures and traps, interaction with the world, etc.

But this time there would be a custom world feature where you create your own worlds and choose from any sets of templates of characters, from both your army and people who help you in your quest. I would throw in a custom soundtrack upload and let you decide your own music for these custom worlds, no more predetermined tracks. I like the idea of borrowing some Mario Maker elements, mixed with a dash of Timesplitters design mode, and putting it into this game. Even if you haven't finished it, these features would be readily available anyway.

I watched a pretty lengthy review of the Simon's Quest revamped game. It's mostly the same, with better graphics, a few additions, including some extra or changed bosses, etc. One of the big issues I saw was that when it turns from day to night (and probably vice versa) when you're on a platform, you actually fall to your instant death each time. I hear it happens quite frequently too. That would almost be a deal killer, despite all of the upgrades. That should have been fixed.

What I'd also like to see is a remake of Goonies II. Someone was actually making a remake of Crystalis, but they started in 2011, and we still don't have the remake out yet.

Perhaps this fan game can be hacked and someone actually could fix the day/night death bug. The game probably was not thoroughly debugged enough.

That fix would make the game more playable.

That would be a great topic to post on gamedev.net and grab a programmer's attention.

My bottom line with these Switch titles continuing the franchise characters is that they stay true to their appearances, and that they don't fall for the '3D is in' crap unless it's absolutely necessary. Frankly, most great titles from earlier consoles and hand helds didn't try to look like Xbox One, nor should they ever. It's all in the game play. I don't care if it looks like Pac Man. If it's fun, I'll still pick it up and play it.

I would like to see heavy involvement from Atlus as they were with 3DS. They made tons of 3DS titles, all with limited quantities available because they just appealed to their hard core fan base. Well, I hope they do something similar for the Switch and give Nintendo at least twice the killer lineup the first party titles already bring.

If Atlus and the other big names are added to Nintendo's lineup, no one will hold a candle to Switch.

Sony and Microsoft can sell all the systems they want, but Nintendo continues to have the better games,

and that counts more for something than a gazillion PS4s, Ones, Virtual UnRealities, 4k theater 6.0s, UHD4krbxcvtvudhfitslknsds, or whatever the snowflakes keep in their parents' basements..

I'm eager to see whether there will be a new Final Fantasy Tactics game expanded on the PS1 original, GBA sequel, and A2 sequel to GBA that was on DS. I don't recall if 3DS ever got one of these.

If they can put the same (or better) level of detail into building your army as they have in the past, it's guaranteed to sell again. The first three titles were a blast, and I trust that Square Enix can easily put another good one out. Though it's unlikely to ever be a Nintendo Select- not for the effort put into these games.

If the Tactics series missed 3DS, give it to Switch!

I don't know why I didn't think about this before, but another phantasy star online game would be nice, something with free play, like it was on the DS, PSP, or the first one on the Dreamcast. These games really were not MMORPGs. They just have a central lobby on each server, where you would hook up with a group of people, to play. So, there should be no monthly fee. Really, pretty much all of the PSO games were hacked, even the ones that saved your characters on the server itself. So, not even the pay servers were ever able to give customers a secure, authentic, cheat-free experience.

Going from PSO to to PSO Volume 2 to PSO episodes 1 and 2 to PSO: Blue Burst, we got all of these great additions/expansions of what started out as a smaller universe on the dreamcast. PSO Universe is really where they left me, as it just didn't feel like a PSO game to me.

I'm not saying I'd personally play it, but it would be tempting, especially if they have a good offline mode as well. One of the biggest challenges to me during a PSO episodes 1 and 2 online play on the gamecube was actually beating the game with my ranger, all by myself, on ultimate mode. The game is significantly harder when you play online, where enemies take tons more attacks, to kill, and ultimate mode is no joke even when you have a big full party, at least until everyone gain several levels. A ranger has almost no defense, and it really doesn't have a good offense either, whereas a magic user has less defense but has spells that can do a lot of damage. A ranger's main ability is having better ranged attacks. With a ranger, you basically have to hit the enemy and stay as far away from them as possible, because some enemies may be able to kill you in about two hits IIRC.

Either way, I'd say make a PSO game, with all of the levels that Blue Burst had, with more stuff, more quests, more levels, more bosses, everything.. there's no reason to scrap all of that stuff.. All of the levels were fun..

I'm thinking this would be a good time to do a 20th anniversiary N64 Rewind as Rare has done for Xbox One.

There would be

Super Mario 64
Paper Mario
Super Smash Bros
Pokemon Stadium
Pokemon Snap
Starfox 64
Yoshi's Story
Donkey Kong 64
Diddy Kong Racing
Waverace 64
Zelda OOT and MM challenges

These games would also comtain a remix challenge mode also found in the 3DS Mega Man Legacy Collection.
