Nah. Can't stand the Joycons for anything semi-fast paced.
The Analogue stick is too small, the buttons are to small and close-together, no D-Pad, it makes using them for anything that is even slightly faced-paced a chore.
I personally don't undock my Switch though... And I use a Pro-Controller that resembles an Xbox One controller, it's a far better experience, I would sell my Switch in a heartbeat if Nintendo released a non-portable Switch.
But hey, we are all different at the end of the day.
Finally someone with the same issue! Since the Switch launched I have been amazed how nobody complained about the horrible ergonomics of the handheld mode. It almost made me think I was the only person in the world with big hands. It was also the only reason I did not pick up the Switch until last year.
Because of the hand cramps in handheld mode I eventually bought a Satisfye grip, which is not a cheap accessory, but makes the Switch very comfortable to play for me. I highly recommend it. Now I enjoy my Switch very much, but it's funny to think how some third party accessory producer had to fix Nintendo's design issues for me to be able to.
On topic: Because of the bad ergonomics I can't really love the Switch. I guess I have to pick the WiiU, because as much of nostalgia I have for my N64, I liked it mostly for its software.
I never got this whole hate towards the WiiU gamepad. I loved being able to play in bed, type in movie titles in the Amazon Prime app and create Mario Maker levels with the touch screen. Rayman Legends and Nintendoland were some of the most fun local multiplayer experiences for me because of the WiiU gamepad. I also liked the downward compatibility and support of the Wii Mote.
