No. They're the only ones who are creative with the idea behind their consoles. We need them for innovation's sake if nothing more.

Just wanted to see what others thought.

I don't know if Nintendo should stop making consoles, but Shigeru Miyamoto should definitely kill himself.

You better hope Shiggy doesn't rain down unholy judgement on you.

But yeah Koizumi seems to be doing a much better job.

You love Nintendo, Quan.

Nintendo should just stop. They haven't been relevent since the 1990's, and live off price gouging suckers.

Nintendo should stop making gimmicks.

Literally, the only Switch original I really want to play is Mario Odyssey.

90% of the rest of the Switch lineup? Garbage.

Also, I've never had more fun with a shooter then I have with Splatoon, and I've played a lot, all the Crysis games, KillZone, hell it may even rival Halo in terms of pure fun factor.

ARMS is a legitimately good fighting game, and they added more then just fighting, it's packed with modes.

Breath of the Wild is one of the best open-world experiences ever, and quite possibly the best LoZ game of all time, I had way more fun with it then I ever did with Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Skyward Sword, or even Link to the Past. It is much better then Skyrim could ever dream of being, imo. I promise you on EVERYthing I love, the hype is deserved, every single tiny last bit of it.

Kirby: Star Allies... could've been better, it's not terrible, it's.. good, just not even close to great.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2, something fans have been waiting for, for years finally came out.

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle... sounds stupid, it's an awesome turn-based tactical RPG, the weapons, the skill tree, the combat, I was playing it all day yesterday and could not stop.

AND THE COUCH CO-OP, MY GOD. If you like having friends over and playing games with them, this is the console to buy, 2 controllers right off the bat, and then you can buy 2 more controllers that come in a single pack for $50-$60.

Then, the ports... every Nintendo port, has been enhanced from the original version in some way, every single port I've seen so far has had extra content that wasn't available on the original version for the Wii U.

Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze, has a new mode with a new character, Pokken Tourament DX adds new Pokemon that weren't available in the original game, Captain Toad has new Mario Odyssey-themed levels.

Then, the future, Metroid Prime 4, Yoshi, Couch Co-Op Pokemon, 2 of them, and they're compatible with Pokemon Go, Octopath Traveler, then there's the future of all new games getting released on the Switch.

Elder Scrolls VI, DOOM: Eternal, so much potential.

Plus, yeah, they could have added features, but eh, I like my gaming systems to be gaming systems. I always end up getting distracted due to my ADHD making me think of a video I wanna watch, or something, but on the switch I don't have that distraction, and it lets me concentrate on something I really love, gaming.

I know I did a shitty job convincing you, but trust me when I say that the switch library is excellent right now, not a single game has bored me.

I wish they did. BotW and SMO were both awesome games that were held back by their hardware limitations. These games would have been even better if they were released on PS4, Xbone, and PC.

Like, me personally, I hate gaming on a TV, I wish every single game system could be like the switch, every single one.

I am all about convenience and if I'm tired or just wanna be lazy, I can be lazy.

I have bad eyesight and my glasses are broken.

Plus, Skyrim on the go? Why the hell... would I EVER want to play it on PS4 again?

I don't see the point in playing docked, unless you're a serious stickler for having it on a big screen with a huge TV, and cool, if thats your thing, do that.

But a lot of people don't have time to sit down and play games, or maybe you're like me, where you just plain don't FEEL like getting up, switching a game every other hour, taking it out, putting it back in the case. For someone like me who is extremely lazy, its just extra time that could be spent already playing a game.

Plus it's always right there, can you take your PS4 to work and play it on your break? No.

Well....you could just get new glasses.

Sure. And I hate that. I've used my Swith portably a handful of times at most.

Honestly, I'm happy enough pulling out an tablet for portal gaming. Candy crush, baby.

Go ahead, call me a casual.

Majority of people are about convenience, and sometimes they are too busy.

Like if they're working on something, they could be on their computer and playing their switch at the same time.

If they're on their computer and want to play a game then they should do so on the infinitely better device that is their computer.

I've heard people make that excuse many times and... honestly, most people don't wanna work or even think about work, and tbh I don't feel like bringing my 10-15lb. gaming laptop with me on a train, when I could just as easily bring the much smaller, lighter, and more accessible switch.

Plus, this part of the argument is less convincing but, there've been times where I'd be trying to write something, and suddenly I'll get bored and wanna play something, so I boot up something on my computer... but then I get really into it and then forget to tab back out to finish writing, next thing I know, it's 4 hours later and I still haven't finished what I wrote cause I was too into the game to notice, you could technically make that argument for ANY handheld, but the switch being the modern Nintendo home console/hybrid makes it fit more into this category... Either way, gaming on a handheld (particularly the switch) is better for when you're working, because all you need to do, is look up, and suddenly remember "wow, I need to finish this, I'll write this paragraph and then go finish this shrine".

Plus, tabbing out then tabbing in every 20 minutes is, idk... tedious and annoying, it just has something going for it that just makes it rather annoying to keep doing, whereas the switch is always RIGHT there.

Honestly I've always loved portables more though.

I played my PSP more then my PS3 (For a time), and I play my Vita WAY more then I play my PS4. I just want every huge game ported to the switch, I have GTA V on my PS4 but I just can't push myself to replay it because I know I'm not gonna have time for it.

Just the fact that I can play it wherever, just makes it better for me, personally, also the fact that it's one of the best, if not the best console ever released by Nintendo, the fact that it's making history by being the first true hybrid, and the fact that it'll be one of the best handhelds ever.

Now, if PS4 and Xbox One did this as well, I'd wholly welcome it. I think Sony is done with handhelds after the Vita sold horribly, Xbox has never made (and may never make) a handheld, though I can be fairly sure that tons of people would be down for an Xbox handheld.

But if you can't see the appeal of certain games, thats cool, but at least try to accept that other people can, I'm not sure why people assume whenever they don't like a game, they automatically can't see the appeal at all, and think everyone's crazy for it.

Yeah, I have games on my PS4 that I'd love to play... but, I just simply do not feel like getting up and switching the discs out, playing for 20 minutes, then maybe getting bored, because thats usually what I do with my consoles.

I'll sit and play for a bit, then I get bored, and wanna do something else, I don't play video games for a long period of time, I play them in short bursts.

In the end, it doesn't matter.

If you handheld gaming, play on the Switch. If you want high end graphics, play on Xbox One X. If you want middle of the road gaming, get a PS4 Pro/regular or an Xbox One S.

Play on PC if you want to play PC specific games or third party ports. It's all good.

And if you want to play something that's good, hook up your PS2. http://images.killermovies.com/forums/moresmilies/velho.gif

Pretty much this. It's vexing though when you occasionally get abysmal failures like the Wii U, but when they do well, they do well.
