OP is really annoying IMO, obviously doesn’t have anything to play so spends his time writing long posts.

No one will change your mind because if a console can be your primary console is based on opinion of what features are good and what you like to play. What can be a primary console will be different for a lot of people.

If people are saying Zelda sucks they are right for them and you are right for you saying it above average.

Hard to find any argument against that, but really wanted to play Spider-Man



Nothing to see here, move along

I have nothing to play?  Thats a new one lol.

 

Replies like this make it evident that you have no real counter to the various points that have been made.  Honestly I feel like most people coming in now either did not read through the thread, or they have taken to trying to discredit my OP because they know there is nothing to add, and that the Switch is indeed a valid choice for primary platform for many people and that upsets them I guess.

I do not play trophies, but they are nice.  Got the plat in God of War but for the most part I ignore them.

If you're a gamer with a healthy taste in genres and a reasonably balanced life, then every console can work as a sole gaming system. The Wii was my sole gaming console during that Era, and there are STILL Wii games sitting in shrink wrap in my bookshelf, waiting for their number to be pulled from my backlog. People here use to think I hated Sony and the Vita because it was the butt of many of my jokes (they conveniently ignored the Wii U was too, I might add),but I'd play a Vita to dust if I had one. Outside of things that die within a year like Ouya and Virtual Boy, any console has enough to satisfy any complete gamer over its lifetime.

Yes, if we remove preference from any specific game, genre or dev any of the main platforms have so many games that you'll be able to play your life out without doing all.

The Switch IS viable as the only gaming device. I plan on making the Switch as my only gaming device for generation 9. It already has games that I like coming out faster than I can play them. I expect the third party releases to only accelerate at this point too. I may even keep playing Switch into generation 10 if it continues at this rate. The last time I was this happy with a console was the NES.



The Switch has been my Primary console since I got it on launch day.  My Xbox One reminds me of this whenever I go to turn it on and it tells me that its been so long it has forgotten my WiFi connection password, and then it needs to run 3 updates before I can play any games on it.  Between that and having to install whatever new game I just bought and wanted to try, I usually end up turning my Switch back on and forget about my attempt to play something on Xbox One that night.  For example, I picked up Battlefront II for $10 on Black Friday and it took me 3 nights before I was able to just start the game and play it at the moment that I wanted to.



Funny enough NS is my most played platform this year and I have a PC and PS4 as well as did pick up the games people are listing, it's perfectly viable as a primary platform because as I said to someone earlier it has a good library and the platform fits well around any gaming habits.

And no-one that isn't a Nintendo fan would have Switch as their main console, because if they aren't a Nintendo fan or Nintendo gamer they either like 3rd parties more or preffer exclusives that aren't from Nintendo. So the only reason for someone to be Switch main (when OP removes portability) is that the person prefer Nintendo exclusives, so his point is circular and pointless.

[...]

I removed all the stuff from my post and your answers which I don't understand the point of. But this one is clearly wrong. Obviously Switch has other games, but there is a much simpler way to look at it: Currently Switch has more owners than WiiU, so obviously non-Nintendo fans. Don't bring up 3DS, as 3DS clearly had more users than only Nintendo-fans, as it has a broad range of games from different publishers.

And yes, even non-Nintendo-fans can play Nintendo games.

This is exactly what every gamer should think. Yeah, sure tastes are different. Therefore excluding a whole library of a system because it doesn't cater to my own tastes would be obviously wrong.

Nozz-A-La said:

Yeah. So depending on tastes a PS4 can never be the primary console for some.

Also, big games everyone is talking about outside gaming media.... does not include Pokemon, Smash, SMO and Breath of the Wild?

And why single out RPGs with two points? Why not singling out Platformers... oh. Well then Metroidvanias... oh. OK, but what with adventures... oh.

It doesn't make any sense to compare exclusives: comparing Smash, pokemon, zelda, mario etc. with spiderman, god of war, uncharted, bloodborne etc. Is useless because it's a matter of taste. There is no objectively better choice, so why even start comparing. Let's say they are equally good

1st party nintendo = 1st party support sony. 

Multiplayer (mostly shooters) and rpgs (open world) are the biggest genres these gen. the switch libary is limited in that regard which is a huge negative point for a primary console.

There are like 200-300 people on average that work on AAA games. with a switch you are missing out the work of like 10.000 developers. 

What exclusive metroidvanias and adventures are you reffering to that are not on pc or playstation?

So, for first party it is a matter of taste and comparable. For third-party it suddenly is not a matter of taste, but stuff like Civilization isn't counting, because.... err reasons?

Games are games, first party or third party is completely irrelevant. Based on VGC-tracking the Switch has sold more games this year, than the Xbox One. So obviously some gamers think the Switch is as viable - if not even more - as the Xbox One. Or is now the Xbox one no viable system for primary or even onyl gaming device?

And I personally don't like Metroidvanias. I also never said it has a better library than the PC. PC has a library that outdoes EVERY console a hundredfold. Nearly everything is on PC. Based on that argument, nobody ever should buy a PS4 or Xbox One in the first place. But still, millions buy PS4 and Xbox One. Seemingly the library of these devices is ENOUGH and other things make it a more justifiable purchase.

Best point in this thread against Switch.

Yeah, people have different tastes. And Switch caters to a lot of tastes the other consoles don't do.

Personally I regularly (once a year or so) check for myself if I want a PS4. Currently my wanted games are Persona 5 and Witcher 3. Not enough to justify the purchase.
