Don’t know why some people are so anti-whatever console they don’t own. 😄

@Spaz well put. I grew up on Mario 3,mario world, and link to the past (still my face zelda of all time), but while Odyssey was fun, it was also not as much of a challenge as some Mario games. As for Zelda, I liked the original e3 demo they showed that was not cell shaded. I hate the lack of dungeons and the food mechanics and cel shade. didnt feel like zelda to me. If Nintendo was smart, the games on Wii u that sold or they felt need another look,they should push out. Give me Mario 3D, give me Skyward Sword so it's not using Wii plus. but I feel switch is dying already. lack of battery life makes its handheld mode pathetic. I could.go on about how little I use the switch and dont like it.
@LegacyJKO09 Nintendo did give me some fun with Super Smash Bros for Wii U. Felt that was a pretty solid entry for the console given that Pacman and Mega Man both made appearances, as well as Ryu. I don't know much about the new Smash game.
The Smash series and Mario Kart series is still going good. But honestly I haven't felt anything terrific about the Mario platformer games since Super Mario Galaxy 1 and Super Mario Galaxy 2. I think those were the last truly great platformers that I played. Nothing else has jumped at me.
Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario World and Link to the Past, all time classics. Of course I cannot forget Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Earthbound also deserves mention, and Super Metroid is well, what all modern day Metroidvanias aspire to be.
But it's just like you said. Nintendo needs a good modern controller, why is that so hard for them to figure out? To this day I cannot stand those motion censor controllers unless I'm playing something like Wii Fit or Wii Sports. I ended up plugging in the Gamecube controller to play a number of games.
I don't like the way the Switch looks, and it's a shame because Nintendo could of used that time to make a more powerful hardware system with an actual controller. The Switch is basically the Wii U 2, only it's more mobile.
Let the Nintendo DS Lite or whatever handheld Nintendo has now handle the mobile stuff. Keep the main console separate from that.
@Spaz Nintendo worsened things by releasing joycons with dpads that were only useable in handheld mode. what the hell...
the new smash was fine, I played and finished it fairly quick but it got repetitive and the online was a mess.
in regards to Mario I loved galaxy. however I am dying for a remake or HD port of Sunshine.
switch also sucks online in the sense they give NES games.... that's it. but theres a new classic and SNES classic... why not have n64 games or gamecube if they wanted to sell their online service and have it worth its price.
if I can use a GC controller i will. motion stuff is terrible. while the switch has a pro controller. its alright. but its battery is crap as well.
I remember seeing the blueprint screenshots for the NX and how it looked like a Wii U gamepad. I laughed thinking they woukdnt be stupid and use that again yet here we are. they essentially did.
So Wii U console subtract Wii Console = Switch Console.... or a modified Wii U Gamepad. took them how long to get the system out while Xbox and Playstation just released upgraded models of consoles.
I know it wouldnt happen but I'd love for Nintendo to just be like sega and work with all parties. have Zelda on Xbox or Playstation. I suppose anything would be possible however. but you would get far better looks on a more powerful system so as long as Nintendo pumps out half assed ideas and calls them consoles.... their IPs will never appear elsewhere lol
