This is the internet, get used to it.

We just went through an entire gen of people mocking X1 ports primarily for being less crisp than PS4 games. It only slowed down because X1X became the best port box and Switch has last gen era visuals in their ports.

Personally, I think these Switch ports are often an eyesore. I think its funny Nintendo fans get excited about them when you can play much better versions on other consoles. But whatever, I enjoy seeing what developers are accomplishing on limited specs. If you play games a lot away from home, then getting excited about Switch ports makes sense to me.

Portability and a clear preference for Nintendo games as a primary system.

Can they play said games on something more powerful?  Yes.  Can PS4 base and Xbox One gamers play said games on something more powerful? Yes. Can PS4 Pro and X1X gamers play said games on something more powerful?  Yes.  So this asinine hate simply because it doesn't look as good as when you played it on your device is stupid. 

Well there is a theory many Switch owners already have a PS4 or X1. That could partly explain why there isn't huge demand for some of this content on Switch in spite of its large and fast growing userbase. Since the N64 days, many Nintendo have needed other consoles to play notable core games.

Forget the PS4 Pro or X1X, the base hardware is also huge disparity from the Switch ports as well. The premium consoles are more like extra polish and maybe 60 fps modes.

Again, I thought the complaining about 900p vs 1080p was ridiculous. I'm an avid gamer and I can barely tell the difference unless its side by side. The disparity in Switch visuals though... that's pretty big. But whatever, I'm not losing sleep over people playing vastly worse looking and performing Switch ports. I think its silly to opt for those versions especially if you play at home.

In my mind, its kinda like watching DVD movies on 480p CRT TV when you could watch the same content on Bluray and 1080p TV. But in some cases, its even worse than that. The Switch version running at half the frame rate sometimes or just being much blurrier... no thanks.
