If you're curious about Lego worlds it is on Steam so you could try it there and then ask for a refund (if you don't like it or want it for the Switch instread)
As for you used to loving your switch it sounds like you really loved Zelda on it but none of the other games really grabbed you. As for justifying holding on to it... well chances are there will be another Zelda game, There will likely be another Mario Kart game (seeing as 8 deluxe is just 8 with improvements and a real battle mode) Also it is getting a Metroid game in the future. (I won't try to talk about the merits of Xenoblade as you said you weren't a fan of jRPGs) I get the feeling that Fire Emblem Warriors game won't be for you either.
The switch isn't for everyone and it definitely has a lacking library at this point, Nintendo is trying to offset this with Indie games at the moment. At this stage I've spent 2.50/hr on the switch (for every hour I've currently played it has cost me $2.50. I came about this number by adding up all the stuff I've bought for the switch and divided it by all the game time I've put in) and I'm hoping to be able to get that number into the $1.50/hr (or lower) range. I'm fairly confident I can do it because I managed to log over 3000hrs on my Wii U. Perhaps doing such analysis will help you. Otherwise I would look at selling your system (especially if supply issues in your region haven't been sorted out - they still aren't widely available in my region)
For those people excited about Octopath traveler am I the only one not really excited about it? My impressions so far is that the graphics are really nice but the combat system is really boring, there just isn't anything new here and it comes across as really dated. The world & Characters haven't really gripped me either (which would allow me to overlook the boring combat system, I just don't care enough about either characters
Played the demo for 20 minutes. Got into the first in-game scene where the main character is infront of a bunch of troops. They're all doing the same animation, at the same time... and they look like they're teabagging. My GF came over to see what I was doing and was like... *** is that. lol!
The environments are beautiful but the characters and animations are just far too dated to hold my interest, it could have the best story ever written, but as amay200 said, there's just no depth to it and as it looks the way it does, I just can't bring myself to play it. I envy those who do. It's not like for example, a book where you can imagine what is going on, they've added visualisations to it, and if those visualisations aren't good enough (IMO), then I don't feel as though in my mind, I can add another layer of imagination to it. What I am seeing, is what I am also imagining in my head. And if what I am seeing in my head, is troops in syncronisation teabagging, then that's how I will remember it.
I played a fair amount of Final Fantasy XV, but it started to get on my nerves, it's like playing as a super-hero boyband. I can't deal with it anymore. I was a huge huge fan of FFVII & VIII, even X was excellent so I have no idea what on earth they were thinking with XV. I love anime and Studio Ghibli, but only select movies/series, ones that don't involve tentacles... or under-dressed protagonists.
Regarding Lego Worlds, I've watched a tonne of gameplay, and I think it would hold my interest for a little while, but again, I'm not sure if it will bring me anything that Minecraft hasn't aside from vehicles.
Then finally, regarding the Xbox One X, I am looking to move away from PC gaming because I live in a 1 bed flat with my Girlfriend. We don't have room for a desk so I am left using my 4ktv for my PC. Whilst it is great, and I really like it, I won't ever own a PC powerful enough to push 4K. I started my own computer building business, and after roughly half a year, and 4 postal claims involving dead components, I am now actually down over £400. I started it to make money, but it just hasn't worked out. Now I'm sat on over £1500 worth of components that I'm trying to sell, but people keep low balling me and it is a nightmare. They're all older parts. I did have an i7 7700k + 1080ti for about a month, that was glorious on the TV, but since selling that, I've spent all the profit on the damn switch. And now I'm stuck -£400 waiting for postal claims. -_-
