    PS4 had shit games for launch, but I still bought it at launch because I could. Took 6+ months before good games started coming out for it.

    That part of it definitely looks odd, but the rest of the environments looked pretty cool, will have to wait and see.

    It had games though, Killzone, Knack, Call of Duty, NBA, Madden, Assasin's creed etc and a bunch of indies too.

    Switch has Zelda, and overpriced Bomberman

    Saying there is only one game is being dishonest. There is one game with a lot of hype around it. But in fact there were 21 games at release, in the West. I think that is right around the number that X1 and PS4 had, each. X1 had Dead Rising 3 and Killer Instinct, PS4 had Killzone and Warframe. Switch has Zelda.

    I don't have and wont buy a Switch for a while. There is a theory that the Switch will also be, in addition to a home console and portable console, a VR and AR machine as well. I'll probably buy one when New Fire Emblem and SMT 5 release for it, but we'll see. I'm my PC and 3DS, and I'm contemplating picking up a PS4 soon for the fantastic games that have been dropping lately. I'm saying all this so that it's clear I have no horse in this race.

    Number of actual games you have a point, but lets be honest a lot of those Switch games are shovelware shit or ports of super old classics, I'm talking physical release of triple a quality.

    And I'll give you this that Zelda might be the actual best launch game ever, most of the exclusives for both x1 and PS4 were bad (although DR3 was good imo) so the Switch definitely has that.

    I'm just shocked that the lineup when you get down to it is so sparse, like why didn't it get Mass Effect which comes out in a few weeks? Or Ghost Recon? Surely it could run those games at lower settings than the other consoles.

    The wiiu at least had ports of Madden and Call of Duty, It just doesn't look good at all for 3rd party support which i think most Nintendo fans don't care about but it does matter since that basically limits you to wait for exclusives to come out if you want something to play on it.

    I'm not even saying i like the typical Assasin's Creed, Madden's or Cods but if its not getting the popular 3rd parties like that it worries me.

    Quality over quantity i guess, bu i think the launch games of the other systems were still overall much better and had much more variety.

    Oh trust me I bought some of those games because I was desperate to play some games, but they were not that good, especially when compared to the XB1 launch games. I also got an XB1 at launch.

    I enjoyed the series.

    But it's all opinions u see. Different strokes for different people.

    But as I am playing Zelda right now games like unchartered, witcher 3, skyrim all seem bland to me right now. It's just not as mentally stimulating. With Zelda I could be stuck in a village trying to figure out this riddle and when I do it's really satisfying. Or try to beat a group of monsters in a different way. Shall I sneak up on them through the tall weekday and tenchu every one of these bitches, hit a red barrel and send them to the moon, hit n retreat with bombs, or charge head along kamikaze style? U can hoard/farm items so u can make different foods to heal or boost stats for unique situations (fight, climb swim whatever). There is way too much things to do with this game and it's all fun.

    Correct, they had that in Metal Gear Solid 2 back in 2001 tho. Do I knock on the door, hide in a locker, then sneak up behind him when he wonders what that noise was? Or Grand Theft Auto (any). Or Skyrim/Oblivion. And some of these games the story, or customization, or graphics trumped Botw's...and the sense of exploration has been around before with the likes of old games like Shadow of the Colossus, with enemy scale unseen before. Sure the world is more alive, but this is a natural trend in gaming that worlds feel more alive as time goes on because the technology to support this sort of thing is increasingly there.

    I can get that. At the same time, there's plenty of games that I love to play that are boring as hell to watch other people play.

    I don't disagree about the quality of the games. I'd literally only play, other than Zelda, Bomberman. But not at 60$. And looking back, the X1/PS4 had sports games as well as the CoD and Battlefield ports too. And to be fair, Zelda also released for Wii U. I do have hope that the system will kick ass and get loads of fun games. This year's line up actually looks solid.

    Yeah i think it will do well initially because of the hype, then might slow down a bit until some bigger games come out.

    When Mario, MK8 (never played on Wiiu) and say Splatoon are all out along with Zelda that will be the time I'll pick one up. I just wish the dock didn't look so cheap since i mainly will use it as a home console, i think as long as you get a screen protector (which tbh everyone should) you'll be fine.

    One nice thing i just learned that i didn't even think about before is yeah it has only like 26 gigs of storage available to use, but unlinke the PS4/X1 you don't have to install every game to the hard drive so that saves it a bit IMO. I have a 2tb Xbox One S and having 46 physical games i don't like having them all installed at once because that's just ridiculous so usually have about 10 at a time.

    I'm still skeptical about it being "perfect" myself, but i give it high marks so far. The actual gameplay experience is rewarding and definitely a huge step forward for the series. Things I thought would be annoying are actually a lot of fun in practice.

    I wouldn't tell anyone to buy a Switch for it. But if you own a WiiU it's a must have imo.

    Why don't they port over Pikmin 3, Yoshi's Wooly World, Kirby, and others to bulk up the list a bit?

    Also, They NEED a new Metroid game.

    I had actually never played a Zelda game until about 10 years ago when I bought the game that came out for the Nintendo DS. And it was awesome. It was super fun and super polished. A coworker just brought his Nintendo Switch to work today and showed me the new Zelda game and it looks great. I think the way Nintendo makes the most out of their relatively limited hardware specs and delivers very polished gaming experiences is amazing.

    Since when was IGN and Gamespot scores something to actually go by? They give every Call Of Duty a great score and I'm supposed to think their opinion on Zelda matters?

    Your confusing overhype with overhype because there's only one game to play.. There's a big difference here. Zelda fan boys is pretty much what it is.

    Says the guy who claimed it was the best game you ever played 3 hours into it.... You've proved my point that this overhype is because of Zelda fan boys.

    Go be Nintendo police somewhere else you goof
