But the choice existed, nonetheless. Breath of the Wild didn't forced you to own a Switch, it was just the better of the two options.

You're never "forced" to own anything. There's always the option of just skipping it. BOTW single-handedly carried the successful launch of one of the fastest selling systems ever.

A game does not necessarily have to be exclusive to be a killer app. If a game is desirable enough that people will buy the hardware it runs on in large numbers just to play it, then it is a killer app.

You're "forced" to own a Nintendo console if you wish to legally play BotW, yes.

What are you on about? You literally just paraphrased what I said, but with an attempt to spin it in the other direction.

Choice existed, you didn't need to buy a Switch to get BotW. It was just the better option.

It's obvious what I'm on about it's your killer app argument as choice doesn't stop BOTW being a killer app because it's exclusive to one company alone killer app is something that the competition don't have. Many people didn't have a Wii U or a Switch so would have been forced to buy one or the other and with the Switch being the better choice they're essentially forced to buy a Switch being a better option doesn't negate something being a killer app the fact that the Switch version could very likely outsell the Wii U itself this fiscal year highlights it.

The's also the debate on whether a choice is really a choice because if one option is good and the other isn't then it's not really a choice as chances are that those who bought the Wii U version already owned the platform beforehand.

Right, so it's not a Switch killer app, it's a Nintendo killer app. Switch was just the better of two options.

Still a choice.

I don't think your side of the argument has a big future in the "condescending one-liner post" department, but to be fair, I'm not sure it has a big future in any department to begin with.

Wasn't going to for one-liner. Just reiterating the same observable fact that I've been stating. I'll leave the condescension to you.

Seems like you guys are arguing over nonsense. BotW was a launch title, that reviewed incredibly well and sold millions of Switch units. Call it what you want, but in the end it was a massive success. Everything else is just semantics.

Literally the beginning of my first post said BotW is the best title available at the launch ever.

You missed the point.

Was the point being that additional surrounding conversation is not permitted?

Not that as much as you two are stuck in a semantics argument with no end in sight. But hey, my mistake. Please continue for another half dozen pages. :)
