whoa whoa hold up
I'm not one of those mustard race douchebags
I understand that the Switch has exclusives that people really want, and that's fine.
but there's no escaping the fact that in these days, tech/hardware does matter.
I know people always say "I just care about the games, I don't care about graphics!!" but those people are becoming more and more the minority.
and I'm not even trying to say that I value graphics over gameplay, because I don't completely, but a fuckton of people do and that's why Sony and Microsoft pander to them so much.
and people have been complaining about Nintendo's hardware limitations since the original Wii, and you would think
that if they didn't
want the Switch to have the same fate of the Wii-U, maybe they could try to attract more of the "hardcore" gamers who do
care about graphics?
I mean let's face it, the multiplats are inevitably gonna be shit again even if they do have 100 third-party developers, because those developers know that all their money is in Xbone/PS4/PC, because Nintendo's core audience are not often buying CoD, Battlefield, or many shooters in general besides Splatoon. maybe I'm wrong, but I would imagine that after the Wii-U, third-party developers will be even more skeptical of putting significant effort into their Switch ports because that's not where they're gonna turn the most profit.
that's actually the exact reason Nintendo is able to persist at all--their core audience, the people who call themselves Nintendo fans are so dedicated to Nintendo that they WILL buy the Switch for a handful of exclusives (which will probably be really good, but may not justify the money investment).
I own an Xbox One, and admittedly there aren't a ton of exclusives, BUT there are a fucking ton of multiplats that run a lot better and have much larger communities than the Wii-U version had/Switch version WILL have. so I got a lot more bang for my buck with an Xbox One, despite owning a PC (which I'm going to upgrade), because as of now my Xbone can run games that my PC can't. so it's like, the best of both worlds for me.
Nintendo fans are trying to post about having Skyrim as a selling point. Skyrim,
a game that came out like half a decade ago and was literally on Xbox 360/PS3. why is that supposed to be impressive?
but I'm not trying to be a dick, if you feel like the Switch exclusives are worth it and you've got the money, go ahead. personally there aren't a lot of games I'm looking forward to this year besides Prey and Crackdown 3.
