I recently canceled my Apple Arcade sub. This does nothing to make me want to reactivate it.

The only game worth playing was Grindstone. I'm so glad it's coming to Nintendo Switch soon. Apple made the huge mistake of not allowing people to buy Apple Arcade games a la carte. Apple continues to be clueless about gaming.
I see it differently. When I saw Grindstone was being released for the Nintendo Switch, I saw a indie studio that was able to receive funding to focus on and release a game to broad acclaim (that might not have seen a release otherwise), tweak and improve it over the past year and then release it on the Switch. Where, now, if someone asks me “What’s a good game for the Switch?” I’ll tell them Grindstone, driving even more money to that indie developer.

If there was only ONE company that was able parlay a Apple Arcade release to a Switch release, I’d say good on them. But, I saw a few games just announced for the Switch that are following their Apple Arcade release and I’m happy for all of them. And, even better if the money they’re getting from Apple Arcade is enough to provide funding for other Non-Apple Arcade efforts (like Capybara Games’ Below, for Xbox, Steam, and PS4).
