I know indie games have a large audience. I love indie games. What I'm trying to get at is that indie games cannot sustain an entire year for Nintendo. That is why so many people see 2020 as a bad year for Nintendo. Sure they revealed and released alot of indie games in 2020 but without a substantial first party lineup to go along side those indies it makes the year seem lackluster. Nobody ever seemed to have a problem with indie directs or partner showcases before 2020 but suddenly once we stopped getting actual Nintendo directs and Nintendo was releasing way less first party content people started to get upset. Of course Nintendo doesn't only need to release first party games but without those first party titles your missing a major portion of what makes a good year for nintendoYou spoke like it's the only thing needed, which is false. Their biggest strength sure, there is no doubt about that. Someone saying that Nintendo's biggest strength isn´t its first-party is stupid. And you are underestimating the power of indie titles. I know a ton of people who has 450 GB sd cards filled with indies alone. There is a reason why Nintendo is focusing so heavily on it even if it feels like shovel war for others. Heck, the videogame that has sold the most copies in the world started off as an indie. They aren´t Mario´s, Zeldas, or Splatoons, don´t get me wrong... but there is a way bigger market for them than you expect.
