The thread seems to be derailing so this will be my last post on the subject, but I don't believe in any kind of objective definition of quality in video games.
Everything about how we perceive and interact with a game is down to chemical reactions in the brain that will differ wildly based on everything from an individual's unique brain chemistry to their past experiences. The very criteria we use to judge a game's quality varies according to individual philosophy. There isn't a game in existence where every single person's opinion of it is uniform.
When I say something is quality, I'm talking about my own opinion. Not sales. Not metacritic. An opinion, as expressed here as a person's subjective assessment, cannot be wrong, any more than someone's favourite colour can be "right" or "wrong".
But this is threatening to send the whole thread into an endless circular argument, so as I say I won't be further elaborating or responding in regards to this subject.
To bring things back to topic, if we don't only count exclusives and just count all high quality games, only SNES and Wii have more than Switch-to-date for me. It's already amassed a better library than the N64, Gamecube, Wii U, etc.
Switch lacking "features" doesn't really bother me; I only use consoles to play games, nothing else. Switch's OS is fast and snappy, suspending your game is an awesome convenience, that's all I ask for.
I personally haven't had an durability issues with it either.
Just give me a handful more games on par with the likes of Mario Odyssey or The Witcher 3 and it could do what I never thought any console could do and dethrone the SNES to become my all time top system.Last edited by curl-6 - on 06 March 2021
Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
