Every word in the OP is wrong though.

But yeah, uhh either WiiU or Vita, but I'll vote for WiiU because I didn't get a Vita expecting to put much time into playing it; I just wanted to play Uncharted. WiiU however was a main Nintendo console, and it never delivered. There was no 'fire' in Nintendo, games were never ambitious (except Breath of the Wild, but that was delayed so much that you can't really consider it a WiiU game anymore) and it shows.

Before that I was probably most disappointed by the Gamecube. Why am I a Nintendo fan again?

Hey now, N64 was revolutionary for it's time!

PS1 didn't have analogue until April 1997, and even then it was pathetic compared to N64's. Too many PS1 games started development using the D-Pad, and so that same D-Pad code was used for the analogue controls. This resulted in many games with analogue controls not really having a gradient of input levels. It was all just either on or off, like a D-Pad. 

Four controller ports, and almost all multiplayer games made for four players!

An awesome controller that was comfortable to hold!

Z-Trigger button was innovative and awesome! 

First game console to do Rumble!

First game console to have games that did 3D right. (Ocarina of Time, and Mario 64). 

The N64 expansion pack was the first mid-gen upgrade!

Yeah I’m just kidding. I probably have an unreasonably biased view of the N64. I wouldn’t call it ‘blinded by nostalgia’, there’s too much awesome stuff on there, and yeah the controller is misunderstood, but it did do a lot to shape my gaming life.

The gameboy advance. Advance wars was a good game, but most games I had for it were a little disappointing. Mostly because the screen was just too smal for my taste :)

Besides the gameboy advance I did own a Nes, N64, Xbox, Wii en Switch en neither of those were disappointing.



PS3, my first and last Sony console.



Xbox360. All i got out of it were Halo games which were meh.



The original 3DS. It literally hurt my fingers to play some of the games. Eventually I bought an XL but but by then the Switch had been announced so it didn't get much use.

My switch is collecting dusk since end of january when i got bored of Zelda. There is no deals on Nintendo store too while on PSN is always something worth buying with a a good deal.

Maibe after ghosts of tsushima i Will buy something in There but só far the switch is the most diassapointing console i ever had

There's like ALWAYS deals on the Nintendo store, though. I have to stop myself from buying things because my backlog was so huge. And if something on your wish list goes on sale, they actually email you.

Yeah, the original model of the 3DS was an overpriced game console for ants. $250 for such a small screen? Really? I felt so bad for all the early adopters when the XL model came out at $200.

I don't because even if I don't follow portable or Nintendo much I know that putting new revisions (larger and smaller) to their portable is a thing they done since GB, same with Sony launching slims they done it all 4 gens.

We got like 20 GBA and NES games as compensation so it wasn't all bad.
