Super Mario Galaxy (extremely difficult decision between this one and 64, but I enjoy Galaxy's theme better with Rosalina and the observatory)
Metroid Prime
Mario Kart DS (graphics haven't aged well, but people fail to realize how much this one impacted the series; extremely difficult decision between this one and Double Dash which were both the peak)
Grand Theft Auto V (the past GTA's are nostalgic, but the modern GTA's have become the more interesting and realistic with special additions and constant updates from the 7th gen consoles to the 8th gen consoles!)
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3
The Sims 2 (extremely difficult decision between this one and the 3rd one)
Call of Duty: Black Ops II (honestly the whole Black Ops series has been my favorite of the Call of Duty games, but 2 is my favorite)

Gaming is an expensive hobby, whereas I've only played half of those franchises. The only non-Nintendo system I've had is a PS2 (which I still have.) I'm considering quitting the hobby because I simply can't afford to have all systems.

Yeah systems are expensive to buy, i thought i was never going to get the Switch. Anyways welcome to inthe00s!

I'm just kinda pissed that I put my trust in Nintendo and they can't deliver good third party support (I have a Wii U and Switch.) I can't play Overwatch, Fortnite, whatever else the boys are playin and I feel left out.

Yeah i would die in peace if fortnite came out on the switch.
