Sleeping Dogs - Never got the chance to play this but it looked right up my street.

Metroid Prime - The whole trilogy may not be possible to port bbut I'm not gready, just the first one in HD would be fine.

Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask - The 3DS remakes would be nice to play on the small screen.

Timesplitters: Future Perfect - TS4 ain't gonna happen but a HD remake of TS:FP with a strong online mulitplayer could be decent COD alternative for Nintendo.

And don't anyone go saying that any of these are technically impossible, as they'll all run on the GPD Win after a fashion. Getting them up and running on the Switch, let alone optimized to its full potential, probably isn't going to be easy but I'd like to see some AAA developers try.
Getting it to run isn't really the issue imo. Overwatch, like most competitive online multiplayer games, needs good comm support and that's not something that's guaranteed on the Switch. Nintendo have already said they're going with some sort of mobile phone app for multiplayer chat. There's no way that's going to be anything other than a complete faff for all concerned.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

I'm hoping that's just a lost in translation thing. The Switch appears to have the connectivity required for headsets so there doesn't appear to be any good reason why games can't just support chat via the device itself.

Their online service generally needs a lot of fleshing out before they should contemplate actually charging money for it too, despite their stated intentions of doing just that.
