I might actually buy a Wii U instead of a Switch, because at least the Wii U is a proper console. Games I want for it:

-Breath of the Wild
-Super Mario Maker
-Sm4sh

...Not much else. But y'know, I'm sure there are more I'll find.


Don't forget Mario Kart 8, Xenoblade Chronicles X, and Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE while you're at it.

I have zero complaints about purchasing a Wii U. It is still the console that gets the most use from me.

I want none of those.


Well, then there is no pleasing you.

I don't know why you would jump to that conclusion. Maybe not everyone wants a racing game they'll quickly get bored of, or a lame JRPG with MMO combat and a bad OST, or a cringey crossover RPG? Just because I don't want those games doesn't mean I don't like games in general. I just like games that I know will be worth my money, and so far only 3 or so Wii U games fit that requirement. Sorry, but the Wii U doesn't have very many worthwhile games. That's why I currently don't have one.

Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors, and Twilight Princess HD made it worth it to me.

Can you please explain why the Switch isn't a proper console? Is it the handheld aspect?
So long, and thanks for all the fish!

Yup, 100% would have. Would've bought the 32 gb version instead of the 8 gb version though.

More or less, yes. Hybrids just don't do it for me. Props to those who like hybrids, though.

truthfully I feel I got my money's worth out of wii u 2x over.
The switch on other hand makes me just not want to support till nintendo fixes its bad long term fault of being unable to back up game saves.
After how many problems I have seen within a first year of 'handheld consoles' I fear for my save files if i played on switch.

Definitely.

Honestly I still don’t even see what’s so bad about it. Every game I’ve played on has looked gorgeous, it has internet functions, and there are plenty of games on it.

So what’s the problem?
These pretzels are making me thirsty!

The problem is that gorgeous games are not inherently fun, which is the point of a gaming console...to provide fun games.
