    I don't think Load is trolling (much), to be fair. I think he is genuinely disappointed that there aren't more big first party games on the system, and I agree with him on that. He needs to accept that it's not the 90s any more though and that games don't need to be 3D to be worth playing. :p

    I must admit, after getting Doom, Skyrim and LA Noire in the space of about a week in the Switch's first year, I'm pretty disappointed there haven't been more big *third* party games released or even announced.

    As an owner of the console I'm entitled to an opinion.

    If you dont like it tough shit. It's the Switch thread.

    If you are not a fan of Indie games, shovelware or replaying titles its a disappointing games library.

    Thanks again for the advice to sell my switch though. I think thst might be the 3rd or 4th time it's been suggested.

    The idea its their best console is laughable.

    @Load_2.0 See, this is why i think you are trolling.

    Which one is it? Are switch owners entitled to an opinion or is their opinion open to derision if it doesn't agree with you?

    Also, you keep banging on about it as if you want to get a rise out of people.

    It's their best console that I've owned (to be fair it's only up against the Wii U, the 3DS and the original Gameboy). That's probably because I prefer indie games to 1st party Nintendo games in general though, but that just shows, you know, YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY.

    You're entitled to an opinion about it. Of course you are, even if I find the constant banging on about it a bit tiresome.

    But again, if you've bought one and it's doing absolutely nothing for you whatsoever, then what benefit do you get from continuing to own one and bringing up how much it sucks again and again?

    New Zelda (2D, sorry Load) and Mario Maker (errr...) say hello!

    (Assuming they're confirmed)

    IMO its better than the 3DS was a year after it launched, but its way behind the 3DS now.

    Just in terms of software of course.

    Hardly banging on about it. When did I last mention it? Last year?

    One of the most awaited titles Metroid Prime gets canned and instead of people being frustrated at a colossal fuck up they praise Nintendo for quality standards?

    There's an issue with the release schedule for good 1st party software relating to the Switch. Ignoring that is fine but pretending it doesnt exist is odd.

    My Switch is my favourite console and I have owned all major consoles since the PS2 (except the XBox1).

    I tend to prefer portables though and absolutely adored my Vita which had far fewer reasons to own it than the Switch.

    I also really like my PS4. So this generation has been great. (Even though the Wii U is easily my least favourite).

    If you want to feel better about Nintendo's Exclusive line up take a look at some Crackdown 3 videos.

    To be fair I am a bit taken aback about Gamers double standards regarding game cancellations.

    Nintendo get praised for cancelling Prime 4, whereas EA get mountains of shite for cancelling Star Wars games.

    The SNES was clearly their best console. I don't even know what you bellends are arguing about.

    Sadly didnít have a SNES. Had a Megadrive. My SNES envy lead me to get an N64 instead of a PlayStation.

    In terms of exclusives it's lagging waaaay behind the best Nintendo consoles.

    In terms of pure playtime though, I reckon I've used the Switch much more than any other Nintendo console within the first two years. Does that make it the best Nintendo console? Not sure.

    It's kinda like how I regarded the 360 to be best console ever for a variety of reasons (mainly XBLA), even though I don't think I ever played a single one of its AAA exclusives.

    Well that's because Nintendo make excellent games, and if they delayed MP4 you know it will eventually turn out well. EA are just money grabbing a-holes and Star Wars sucks anyway.

    If it comes out for this version of the Switch I will film myself apologising and flagellating myself with a home made cat o' nine tails.

    Except Prime 4 hasn't been cancelled. Also, the last time Nintendo released a video like that, the final game turned out pretty well.

    @Load_2.0

    I mean you're being very whiny about a console that's less than two years old and has already had at least two console exclusive masterpieces (Mario and Zelda) and a load of really strong second tier exclusives (Smash Bros., Arms, Splatoon 2, Xenoblade 2) released, with a bunch more promised for this year.

    I'm pretty sure the PS4 wasn't in such a strong position two years in, in fact most consoles take around 2-3 years to really take off.

    But you know, you do you...

    Zelda was a WiiU port. Splatoon 2 was essentially an expansion pack.

    The 2-3 year magical window is approaching so I eagerly await the opportunity to play some decent Nintendo titles.
