@el-shmiablo Sword and Shield wasn't too bad outside the Wild Area, which they clearly struggled with. Diamond and Pearl Remakes are outsourced to a dev studio who have only assisted on games and made Pokemon Home before this, and I agree those games look awful. I want performance too, but everyone keeps making damn open world and musous, which will inevitably end up really ugly or really poor performance, because people don't accept "less enemies on screen at once" these days.
@bam541 I'm really not sure how BotW did it as a launch game, but I'm sure having twice as long of a dev cycle as those Pokemon games sure helped. Even then, there were afew hitch areas at launch and Korok Forest still does it bad, plus the Master Cycle Zero actually breaks the game, because it wasn't designed for you to go that fast period. The two Switch games that just feel like magic to me are Dragon Quest XI S and now Monster Hunter Rise. Both of those I just am in awe of. Those devs must know something about the hardware others just don't.
