Hey guys as a guy who has had a Switch since launch I just wanted to share my thoughts
on the console and let you know if I think it is worth picking up, now that it has been released
a few months and the software library is starting to get fleshed out.
Yes, the Nintendo Switch is certainly worth picking up. While small, the library of games is
fantastic and there is more than enough to keep you busy. Breath Of The Wild, Mario Kart 8.
Splatoon 2, Lego City Undercover, Sonic Mania and in the coming weeks we have Mario
Rabbis, Pokken Tournament DX, and Super Mario Odyssey. If you just take the games I
have talked about that is already a pretty damn stacked first year.
As far as the console itself goes, I honestly have no complaints. I mainly use it in docked
mode always connected to my TV and I have yet to have a single problem. My son though is
always taking the Switch out, playing it downstairs, in his room, in the car and in general, he
loves the portability of it and then being able to dock it when he wants to play multiplayer
with me or one of his buddies. The Nintendo Switch is just fun, plain and simple and I
honestly cannot see anyone being unhappy with it.
The only downside to it is the price of the controllers. I find these to be just horribly
overpriced. But I will say that the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is one of the most
comfortable controllers I have ever used. So much so that I actually have a hard time
playing with the Joy-Cons (not that I am saying they are bad) so I would say that if you are
looking to buy a Switch I would advise buying the console, a game and instead of getting
another game I would go for a Pro Controller first.
I have had a great time with the Nintendo Switch so far and I am genuinely excited for
games like Mario Odyssey, Kirby, Yoshi and whatever else Nintendo have in store for us.
One thing I will say is that if you are planning on getting one, I would recommend you do so
before the Christmas rush. Some people have had a hard time tracking down a Nintendo
Switch and when Mario Odyssey is released and stores start bundling that with it, you can
bet it will be even harder!
