From what I have seen in videos, the actual joy cons on the system look terrible, and look terrible attached to that plastic monstrosity you can use as a standalone controller. It looks like an overpriced Pro controller is the way to go once you realize the joy cons are trash.
I ordered a second pair of Joy-cons that arrived before the console. Even having them physically in my hands, they really didn't seem like something that made a whole lot of sense. The thumbsticks don't have much travel, the shape and layout seems kinda weird. After loading up Zelda and just using them though, it was surprising how easily I adapted--barely even had to think about how to hold them or what I was doing. Dunno if it's a game tuning thing, but everything just feels right once they're in action. I didn't even notice any of things I thought were going to be an issue beforehand. I was genuinely surprised how well they work.

My only complaint is with holding them sideways stand-alone (got some 4-player gameplay in last night): the shoulder buttons on the strap sliders aren't that great. They're a button pushing a button, and they definitely feel like it. Kinda mushy without a whole lot of travel. Not sure there's a way around it, the actual shoulder buttons are pretty tiny. No way to add a more satisfying press.

I might consider grabbing a pro controller for Mario Kart or Smash (whenever that happens), but think I'll be fine without for most stuff. Not sure how much I'll even use the grip. Always liked the detached L/R feeling of the wiimote/nunchuck combo, but those controllers were always kinda iffy. The joy-cons are pretty fantastic.

Well of course the stance on the quality of any game is subjective. That goes for any game on any platform.

But heres my list for whatever that's worth (nothing):

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Super Mario Odyssey
Splatoon 2
ARMS
Disgaea 5 Complete
Yooka-Laylee
Stardew Valley
Skyrim (if you care about mobile skyrim)
Fire Emblem Warriors
Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Project Octopath Traveler (may or may not release this year)

For a more complete list of confirmed games, you can navigate HERE.

It's not bad for year one, especially with the Switch basically having a soft launch, BUT I expect (and Nintendo had better deliver) to see more during E3 this year.

You're feeding it attention. What happens when you give a 5 year old the attention they seek? It only amplifies the behavior.

Aww are you upset that everyone made you look like a fool? You did a fantastic job on your own with the comment about Nintendo becoming a 3rd party developer. People use to say Apple was going to fail because of there conservative business ways. Well, Apple has $246 billion in cash. They could buy all the NFL, NBA, MLB, & NHL teams and still have $94 billion left.

I should save this post so in a decade when Nintendo is shipping Mario 20 paintbrush edition on the PS 6 I can look back and laugh.

I've already saved it so I can also have a laugh. I've been coming to this site daily for almost a decade and I plan on dong the same for the next decade.

I'm surprised you're forecasting Sony's existence as a hardware developer in 20 years; they're almost constantly teetering on the verge of collapse.

It feels like they're one more Playstation failure away from a liquidation sale.

I guess when I think of a list I mean titles worth owning to buy the console for. Only Super Mario Odyssey fits that bill. Most people don't buy a Nintendo console to play 3rd party. For unique first party games only Zelda and Super Mario fit that bill.

The video is the one linked earlier in this thread or another Switch one. The problems video. Shows the joy cons moving back and forth where they attach to the screen.

If NEC brought back the Turbo Grafx 16 and it was successful i could die a happy man.

Again when you're only manufacturing enough to barely meet demand it tends to make new units hard to come by. Which is why it makes no sense to me why Nintendo does it. They could be making even more money to fund their underpowered hardware experiments. Gotta spend money to make money.
