I already skipped the Wii because of forced motion control. I skipped the Wii U in the beginning, because the first games were also focused on motion control or used the gamepad in a way I wasn't interested. Then Nintendo changed their focus to core gamers with Tropical Freeze, 3D World, Bayonetta, Xenoblade and Mario Maker. I played these games at a friend of mine who had a Wii U and I would have bought this console if it would have been possible to transfer game save files. But the save files are locked to the console. Thanks Nintendo. I skipped this console and bought the Switch and waited for ports which luckily happened for the most part.
I only had a SNES and Gamecube before. I skipped the N64 because of PlayStation 1 which had more games I was interested in. So I think I'm not a die hard Nintendo fan. Nintendo really f*cked up many things with Wii U which made it pretty unappealing for average gamers.
