^ I will second not giving a crap about any of the games on that list
The edge intensified.

So you don’t care about roaming around a place called night city filled with cyborgs and futuristic technology as a mercenary pushing the limits of video games in 2020?

Remember the box episode of spongebob when they go to robot pirate island and squidward just stands out there wanting his own box. I’m not gonna share my box with any of you squidwards.

There are lots of people who buy a new console JUST to play Madden or CoD.

How is that any different than people who buy new consoles just to play Mario and Zelda, other than that Mario and Zelda are usually good games (Madden has been progressively worse for like 5 years and CoD releases tend to be unevenly received even from the fanbase, though people love the hell out of that new one)? And if they're only getting consoles just for Madden/CoD, how much more appealing are Nintendo's exclusives to them than Sony or Xbox's exclusives if those aren't generally games they care about? They probably wouldn't make much headway with those kinds fans if they had comparable graphics at this point because those gamers already have brand familiarity to Microsoft or Sony.

An unpopular opinion is one that is not so obviously the Grand Canyon of edge. You win. It’s yo birthday

I also don’t care about Madden, CoD, RDR2, KH3, and won't have Cyperpunk 2077.

I can see not liking some of them but all of them? So much edge
Never said I dislike any of them. I just don’t particularly care about them. Don’t confuse my indifference for anything hostile or edgy.

RDR2 seems neat from a story perspective, but I’ve played a few hours and the gameplay is borderline unbearable. CoD is fun but I’m not gonna buy a console for it. I respect sports games but I’m awful at them. KH3 is a big No Thanks. Cyberpunk looks neat, but I’d never in a million years have the time to invest in it.

I just want to clarify that ML does not speak for both of us and personally my indifference is both hostile and edgy and all the games listed look like trash normie garbo for losers.

Speaking as someone who primarily plays PC, the Switch is the only console that offers anything beyond exclusives. I love that PS4 has Persona, but I'd ditch that in a heartbeat if Sony let everything come to Steam, because there's just nothing better about playing on their console. The portability and handheld mode of the Switch are really selling points that offer something the giant box under my desk can't.

I'm never going to play Cyberpunk on my Switch regardless because it would be a vastly inferior experience, but I'm also never going to do an impulsive derpy speedrun of Three Houses on my PC during a flight. What's the equivalent statement for PS4, or, if you really want an impossible challenge, Xbone?

Nintendo should definitely make a regular home console with standard features to go against PS5, and leave Switch in the position of 3DS successor. Doubt it'll happen though.

Nintendo should at least be pumping out their 1st party franchises and ensuring their quality (looking at you, Kirby and Yoshi). Switch is not gonna get much in the way of new major AAA 3rd party releases, especially not simultaneously, but nobody expects it because it's a glorified handheld. As such, its graphics are fine.

The only thing to reasonably be complaining about is poor performance, lack of features, bad online, and inadequate 1st party support. Being upset because Switch isn't getting all the major home console releases or having 4K is just being mad at a handheld for being a handheld, basically.

My main gaming platform is my PC, which is so far in advance of consoles in terms of general ability. I'm not going to replace it until it's been sequentially upgraded bit by bit to a completely new system. Nintendo made a very high-end portable console that can output to tvs. It's good that it's got a different library, because if I can get the games on my PC I'm typically going to unless I feel they'd work better as a portable.

Hardware will keep pushing forward and Nintendo will keep upgrading it. We know that. So what if they're a half-step behind the other systems? Games can look so good on the Switch that you're all going to have to upgrade to 4k or 8k screens to appreciate a more powerful console. Past the first 10-20 minutes of a game, you're not going to be paying attention to what's pretty or not, anyway.
