Nintendo Switch is designed to fit your life, transforming from home console to portable system in a snap. So you get more time to play the games you love, however you like.
The Nintendo Switch has become the most played console in my house. This is partly because of the great games that have come out for it and partly because it was made for you to keep playing. In the evenings, I can just pick it up off the dock and keep playing Splatoon 2 in bed. I actually use the handheld mode fairly often; even around my house. The resolution of its screen isn't great, but none of the games released so far have high end graphics so it's not too much of a problem. The battery life isn't awesome, but you can get about 3 hours of game time out of it. It won't last for long flights, but it'll hold up around the house or bringing it in to the office. I highly recommend this. I would also suggest splurging and getting a pro controller with it. Definitely worth it.Pros:
Great first party games, easy to bring with you, and a very comfortable design.Cons:
The battery life isn't great, and the screen is pretty low resolution.
The Switch is the most fun device I've ever had. It's screen, despite being only 720p, has been plenty decent; I have spent most of my time playing in handheld mode. When docked and playing on a TV, the ability of the console to achieve 1080p at either 30 or 60 FPS is astounding, given its size. The flexibility offered by the Joy-Cons is great, and their ability to switch (ha!) between a PSP style handheld, Wii style motion controls, and a conventional game console controller offers great freedom, especially when games support more than one or even all of those configurations. It also offers a way to have 2 players play on the console without even ordering additional controllers.
Overall, the Switch is an incredibly fun device, with great games in its library, that has a lot of potential. It strikes a great balance between many different types of gaming without sacrificing its potential to be great in any area.Pros:
- incredibly portable
- great graphics for its size
- quickly growing library that includes many popular indie games
- very stable softwareCons:
- battery life can be a bit short
- cannot charge in "tabletop" mode
- kickstand is not that sturdy
- still lacking chat, save data backup
The Nintendo Switch singlehandedly saved console gaming. In a world where PS4 and Xbox One have the same boring "blockbuster" games, Nintendo is back releasing the best exclusives on the market. If you own a PC and a Switch, you're better off than if you own a PS4 and an Xbox.Pros:
Best console of this generationCons:
