The Switch's joycons would like a word about the hardware quality thing.

It also helps the Switch is cheaper than the Ps5 still to this day. Affordability is a big selling point.

I remember when the switch was considered expensive because the price was upped because of the huge demand

Which console is a "Nintendo"?

For a lot of parents all of them

While I agree that Nintendo isn't the best game company, you can't say all the games are bad just because you didn't like 2/3 you tried. There are games like Wii Sports which will always be an iconic game. You also have to remember that they tend to be more directed at kids, so perhaps that could be part of why you didn't like them?

I don't say they're bad, just not for me

"I played only one Mario game and it's the regular one" how does this translate into "i dont like mario games". This barely rises to the level of an opinion, as you lack the experience to have an opinion lol.

"The regular 2d one" OP, there are multiple Mario titles which fit that description. Might help to narrow it down a bit.

Super Mario 8 bit

So you played one of the oldest Mario titles and then tried to compare it to a 3D platformer that takes an entirely different approach to platforming as a genre…

I don't think anyone is debating that Nintendo makes the best console. The thing is, Nintendo makes Nintendo games and you can't play them without emulators which is why people still buy it. Tbh I'm not really a big fan of Nintendo but the GameCube, n64, game boy and 3ds are a huge part of my childhood. And that's enough for me to recognize them as not the best gaming company, but an okay one. I own a switch lite I was gifted by my gf and literally only play smash bros. Your reasonings for your opinion is garbage though, but I agree it's not the best console.

Tbh I feel like most of us enjoy Mario games for nostalgia. When I've played recent ones they didn't have the same kick, but yet again I'm not 7 anymore. It's not that it's the best, it's what was available to us as kids, and probably what most our (millennial and older gen z kids) parents recognize as a console, hence why older people call everything "the Nintendo" (a joke but still)

For traditional mario games. But mario kart and mario party is still as fun as it ever was if you have friends to play them with

by Anonymous 3 weeks ago

Ah yes, but I don't have friends 😌 Lol nah Mario kart is still fun solo tbh, I can't even remember what I originally played it on (it was either my ds or 3ds) but it was still just as great as when I've played with people on the switch

Agree They are highly overrated

Nintendo isn't the best console by miles. But their games are fun and Legend of Zelda is goated.

by ComprehensivePut4199 3 weeks ago

Nintendo games are overrated overall, and Mario Odyssey is insultingly easy, way too easy to be fun, unless one is very easily entertained. There are two GREAT Mario games, but they were made by Ubisoft, and feature Rabbids.

There are 12 great mario games and they are the Paper MariosMario&Luigis and Super Mario RPG

Pretty much like you said. There is just so much hype around Mario but its honestly not THAT great

by vonruedenmarcel 3 weeks ago

So you play the standard 2D platformer, of which there are multiple... and then conclude that the racing games, 3D platformers, puzzle games, sports games, party games, rpgs, etc. are the same? Wait hold up. You are saying Mario games and Nintendo consoles are not supposed to be in the conversation for best franchise and console respectively because you play more stuff on PlayStation and xbox? Thats way worse. 'i dont know much about that stuff so its bad' is just such a common and stupid take on something.

by lbailey 3 weeks ago

No I'm just expressing my opinion, I've tried Mario games and they don't fit me, that's all. Im not saying Mario is bad

by vonruedenmarcel 3 weeks ago

I know I will get hate but Nintendo is targeted at a younger audience. They don't try to make the best console, 11 year old kids don't care about ram. Also, the best console is a PC.
