I got a Switch a couple months back so I've played the following:
Zelda BOTW - Lots of fun exploring, especially during quarantine time when I had nothing better to do
Hollow Knight - Incredible Metroidvania-style game, probably the best of the genre I've played
Super Mario Odyssey - Silly but fun. I got through this pretty quickly and don't have a huge desire to find all the moons
Celeste - Cool platformer with a solid story
Bloodstained ROTN - Another Metroidvania, but after Hollow Knight (and the old Castlevania games) feels pretty janky. I know the Switch version has its issues so maybe it's better elsewhere, but I'll say I'm glad I picked this one up on sale

I have sonic mania on the switch. I enjoy it a lot. Breathe of the Wild I have 66 shrines and 3 divine beasts and no motivation to continue.

Been grinding mainly Call of Duty Warzone lately. Getting pretty good now as I know the map, guns, strategies, and positioning pretty well. Have a 2.3 Kill/Death ratio with around a 13% win percentage (about 90 in total).

Alright now that I've put a decent number of hours in I can definitively say that Fallout 4 is a ton of fun. It does remove a lot of the standard fallout elements - no skills, linear story with no factions to choose so far, reduced dialogue which makes roleplaying more difficult - so it doesn't feel like a fallout game. I'm not surprised people were upset if they were expecting a traditional fallout game.

But I'm really loving what they made. The settlement building is great, the gunfights are much better than any other fallout game, the crafting system is a bit tedious but enjoyable, and I'm focusing more on picking up junk like oil cans, soap, and microscopes for their parts than weapons and armor so I don't have a chest full of hundreds of items I'll never be able to sell. Also the dog's AI is drastically improved, in other games he'd default to "sprint in and attack like an idiot" no matter what I was doing or how far away the red dot was.

I don't have the patience to do the Divine Beast that rotates as you go through it.

Got the platinum on TLOU2. With a guide, the cleanup wasn't bad. Collectibles was easy, maxing guns and abilities was annoying.

Not sure when it eventually got added, but it's free on the Epic store for the next couple days.
