I think I'm 60% TV - 40% handheld

using the tabletop mode much more that I expected, outside or when others are watching TV or even when I'm half-watching TV :P , a very handy feature and social too



don't mind my username, that was more than 10 years ago, I'm a different person now, amazing how people change ^_^

TV mode only, I never liked handheld gaming one bit. The joy-con controllers are very uncomfortable for me and the buttons feel too small and "shallow" in their feedback and overall design. It's brilliant in docked mode though, and the Pro controller is possibly the best controller I ever tried.



I picked nearly 100% portable but I live in a van and travel full time. I do have a tv tucked in here but rarely pull it out (usually just to occasionally play Ring Fit). Back when I lived in an apartment though I probably split my play roughly 50/50.



All most zero % in both modes, pretty much gathered dust since BotW back in 2017 🤣🤣

It depends on how much I'm home. Normally would be 80% portable. It largely depends on the game; Ring Fit Adventure is always a docked game, while games like Animal Crossing are almost always portable. Some, like Xenoblade, I play about 50/50 in each.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

99% in the bathroom



"If new things are so great, where have they been the whole time?"

Nearly 100% Docked but I'd use it a lot more in portable if it wasn't for joycon drift.



I know... my English sucks.

Like already said, used to be close to 90% portable but then not only the joy cons started to get all crappy but I began to play Smash online. So now it is about 60% TV. I voted 75% portable to make a division.
