If you're buying a Nintendo for anything other than it's 1st party games, you're going to have a bad time.

I've fucked mine off because i have started to get more and more pissed off with some of the short cuts on the third party games

Nintendo and alot of their fans have made a big deal over third party support and the push towards them markets and attracting perhaps a different fan base due to this, however the effort put into FIFA, WWE and the likes is absolutely ridiculous and im a bit pissed off with mine at the minute.

My 12 year old neice got one for christmas and brought it up on christmas day. For some of the basic games it got quite addictive very quickly LOL

Milking the cow was funny. I think I would make a good farmer based on my ability of it.

Quick draw was fun too but I wasn't going to beat a kid at have a fast reaction time too often. It's good how it talks to you so it knows you're cheating if you don't follow instructions properly.

Yeah see if I didn't have a Wii-U, and had never played Skyrim, then the Switch would be worth it to me. I'm sure in time it'll be worth my money, but for now it's still not.

We already have Breath of the Wild and Poken Tournament on the Wii-U. Skyrim we have both for the PC & PS4/Vita-Remote. And sorry, while we might get Mario Kart and Mario Party for the system, it's not a reason to buy. That leaves basically only Mario Odyssey as something we'd consider buying the system for, and that's no where near enough yet.

We will have to wait yet another year. Maybe by 2019 there will be enough titles worth buying the justify getting the system. I'm still predicting 2020 though. Metroid Prime 4 would be a good title, hopefully, and Pikmin 4 would also be a good would to have in the lineup. If they released those games as well as announced another Legend of Zelda (not a spinoff or a remaster of Skyward Sword but a real sequel) then it might be time to start considering buying the system.

I have this as my second console and dont have a Wii U so most of the titles you mentioned i have on the switch.

Odyssey is actually amazing and is probably worth getting the console for alone - in my opinion.

Mario Kart is good fun and games such as Arms, Rocket League, DOOM, Resident Evil give it some variety that maybe nintendo consoles havent had in the past

I was kind of sceptical about Switch but I'm glad I was wrong. It's shaping up to be a great console. I love the games that came out so far and I'm so looking forward to the stuff that's announced.

I never played the Wii U but ive read alot online about comparisons and the switch has already surpassed what the wii u achieved.

I think its the uniqueness factor - the same as what the wii had when that was released.

Whether or not it will last is another question but they are really struggling to meet demand which is always a good sign in terms of sales ... the third party games is also a real benefit - first fifa on a nintendo console i believe

Our family will eventually get one, but for now we are just waiting for more games to get released. We got the Wii-U when it first came out and ended up buying about half a dozen games. Not at all worth the price of the system IMO. We got well over a dozen games for the Wii and also the GameCube and easily 2 dozen or more games for the 3DS.

After getting burned on the Wii-U, I just want to wait until the switch is closer towards the end of its life cycle and then buy a bunch of games all at once.

Besides that, we were able to get The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Wii-U and it was AWESOME!
