    There comes a time when you gotta ask yourself this question: "Is there anything to innovate anymore?"
    Pretty much all the games to be released are improved versions of already existing ideas.
    There comes a time when we must revisit the old and make it shine!
    The Switch will be my second Nintendo console to play after the SNES and I am thankful to Nintendo for making this handheld marvel available to me. Back in the days, I did not get to play the Wii U so there's that.

    "HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT NO ONE IS EVER GONNA BUY THIS CRAP"

    "Nintendo Switch becomes fastest selling console in less than a year, out does the lifetime of the wii u"

    :thonking:

    I like how you guys bitch and whine about a console that leans towards kids, and children friendly content. A Common sense-d Parent isn't going to buy their kid a ps4 with Gta-V, they are gonna go with the child friendly looking Italian. Though I'd rather new games, Ports are fine, Not everyone had a wii u to play these games, and even if they did, it's nice to have them portable form, and fixed up a bit. (Bought Mario Kart 8 dx, and I have already played it more than the wii u version, because I can play it anywhere) Super Smash bros covers the larger audience, and they are still working on Mp4, so why would they show a broken game, when they can just hold it off for now. Games take forever to make, and you should actually be happy they are not rushing it, and actually taking their time with the game, instead of rushing it, and reaping the benefits(Like Fed force)

    The Switch, a handheld marvel??? The Iphone 8 is more powerful than the switch, and has most of the same games available to it through the app store. You can even make phone calls, and take pictures with the Iphone. Try doing that on the Switch. The Wii U is still the best console Nintendo has ever made simply because it is capable of playing just about every game Nintendo has ever made over the past 30 years. The only games that it can't play are the 3 or 4 that are exclusive to the Switch.

    And yes, there are no limits to innovation. People have been asking that question since ancient times, and look where we are today. What we have today will look primative 500 years from now. The pace of innovation may slow down at times, but it will never stop.

    I mean, I could compare the iPhone 8 to a PC and PC would win. I could compare a PC to a Supercomputer and the Supercomputer would win. I don't because that would make me look dumb.

    Even so. the list i made is extemely fair for the switch and it still loses. Compare PS4 and Switch exclusive list, switch loses, PS only games, switch gets wrecked. PS and PC only, switch gets wrecked. the overall game list, switch just died.

    but your pc never claimed to be a handheld marvel.

    The handheld never claimed to be a handheld marvel either.

    Well, you forgot to remove 2 PS4 remasters of the list (and no, there are no real changes to SotC's gameplay. You can change the button configuration this time, but, besides the camera control, the game still plays like the same) . Not counting the two "stand-alone DLCs" (and I'll not talk about DOAX3...), expanded remakes and the lifetime of each console.

    The thing is, I'm not complaining about personal preferences here, but it's not exactly possible to compare the experience that each game provides. For an example, to say that games like Killzone: Shadow Fall and The Order: 1886 are way better than anything on the Switch side can only be a joke in my opinion. DriveClub is just OK, and The Last Guardian is way below expectations. As you included games yet to be released, you forgot some of the Switch titles like No More Heroes, Demon X Machina, Fire Emblem: TTH, Shin Megami Tensei 5 and Bayonetta 3 for example.

    In my opinion, you're mistaking quality with technical values. Both consoles have great games, but provides different experiences. You can't just judge which is better or worse based on this alone. In the end, the personal preferences will be the decisive factor. Instead of comparing them, just play both of them. 8D

    Wow... You completely missed the point. You're right, you could look dumb. Is a PC a hand held device??? The discussion was about hand held devices, and whether the Switch is even remotely close to a hand held marvel, when you have many hand held devices today that are just as capable.

    Is a notebook a computer?

    I am not the one saying it.

    Let's be honest. The Switch is a portable console, and a powerful one at that, but it's not meant to compete with the PS4 or Xbox One in terms of raw power (and hey, if you want to get a system for its raw power, you'd pick neither of those lmao). But the Switch is massively successful exactly because it offers something the competition cannot. The games do run acceptably on the Switch, and it's a fairly small, portable system.

    Notebooks and desktop computers are not handheld devices. if they were, then there never would have been the need to invent smart phones, Nintendo Switch's, etc..

    GPD Win is a nice handheld to have, but fair enough. What I ment by my post is that I could compare things ad infinitum by your logic. The iPhone 8 is a phone that plays games, and that's fine. The other user said the Switch is a marvel because it is a handheld that can play games a fixed console have on their belt, and that's fine too. You can agree, you can not agree. You missed his point, just as you said I missed yours.

    How was the PS4's library at this point in its lifespan? 15 months or so in, what was the outlook on that?

    Switch's lineup keeps getting better. No, it hasn't outdone a console that's been out five times longer YET. But it's a better purchase. You'll get more out of it.

    In another sense, let's take your top five games;
    God of War - 20th April, 2018
    Uncharted 4 - 10th May 2016
    Bloodborne - 24th March 2015
    Shadow of the Colossus - February 6th 2018
    Horizon Zero Dawn - 28th February 2017

    You get Bloodborne. That's it for your big releases at that stage. We have Splatoon, Mario Kart, Odyssey, Breath of the Wild, Xenoblade... Man, by valid metrics, your argument sucks.
