My unpopular gaming opinion is that I think mario tennis Aces is awful. I dont find anything fun about it.

I think the pokemon TCG is...
very unblanced: EX and GX cards make evolution pretty much pointless.

Very cash grabby: Energy card are hard to get from regular packs, forcing you to buy theme decks that cost too much.

And very luck based: To me the game feels like a matter of who can draw their best cards, and the energy cards to use them first. Also alot of the moves are focused around flipping a coin.

I somewhat agree. To give an example, Nintendo gave us 100 chances to play NES games.If not that, 10000.

I'd like the mini consoles if they made them for systems I've never really experienced. I don't need a NES, SNES, or PS1 mini because I've already played most of the noteworthy games on them. But I'd maybe buy a Sega Saturn mini or Turbografx mini because I've played barely any of their games.

This is probably my most unpopular opinion, I don’t care about Splatoon 3. I think it will be a good game, but I still don’t care about it.

Meanwhile, PS4 is still a Big disappointment for me.
I have sold some of my PS4 games, exchanged them with Switch version.
Now, it just only TWO PS4 games in my shelf. (Portal Knights and The Sims 4)

Portal Knights is available on Switch(I think).
I’m pretty sure you knew that that already, but I’m just saying.

I’m pretty sure that this isn’t an unpopular opinion, it just depends on what console you grew up on, Mario Kart DS was the best Mario Kart Game in existence. Mario Kart 7 should’ve been DS, but more.

New unpopular opinion, I'm still excited for Pokemon Sword and Shield. Maybe not as much as I would have been before the "controversy" but I still very much look forward to playing it.

I am as well. The "controversy" does exhibit some negatives, but I really do think a lot of people are making a mountain out of a molehill.

@MegaSwitch I can't speak to the current meta-game for the TCG, but around the 4th generation DPPT/HGSS era of the card game, it was really solid and competitive. I played the game a lot. It remained pretty solid into gen 5 until they released one of the worst cards ever printed... Hypno Toxic laser. Yes, basically a gun for the trainer to poison the opponent's Pokemon and put them to sleep on a coin flip. A utter horrible idea completely breaking the theme of the game and reducing many games to revolving around the coin flips caused by that one item card. That's around when I left the game.

@RedderRugfish You may know this already, but they're making a TurboGrafx Mini right now:

@Rutty_YT I don't see myself getting Splatoon 3 either, actually. Splatoon's a fine game, don't get me wrong, but I keep running into players who tend to grief (how I noticed it was that some players had 0 points at the end of the match). It's not necessarily the game's fault, but that happened to me a lot while playing Splatoon 2 - one time I lost a match and two of my teammates had 0 points at the end. That's what turned me off from the game, and I'm afraid that if Splatoon 3 does happen, it'll have that griefing issue too.

As for Mario Kart DS, yeah I think a lot of people would agree. My favorites are Double Dash and 8 (Deluxe), but DS is still solid in its own right. I played it a ton of times back when it came out.

I think the SNES library is for the most part an inferior version of the GBA library

SNES has Link to the Past, but GBA had Link to the Past, Four Swords, and Minish Cap
SNES had Castlevania 4 and Dracula X, but GBA had Circle of the Moon, Harmony of Dissonance, and Aria of Sorrow
SNES had Final Fantasy 4, 5, and 6, but GBA had 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and Tactics Advance
SNES had Super Mario RPG, but GBA had Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga
SNES had Super Metroid, but GBA had Metroid Fusion and Metroid Zero Mission
SNES had Mario 1, 2, 3, World, and Yoshi's Island, but GBA had all of these and Mario VS Donkey Kong
SNES had Earthbound, but GBA had Mother 1, Mother 2, and Mother 3
SNES had Super Mario Kart, but GBA had Mario Kart Super Circuit
SNES had F Zero, but GBA had F Zero Maximum Velocity, GP Legend, and Climax

Not to mention that the GBA was stronger than many people give it credit for. Minish Cap is way more detailed and colorful than Link to the Past. Zero Mission is somewhat better detailed than Super Metroid. Super Circuit is less jaggy and more colorful than Super Mario Kart. Just try and find a SNES game that looks anywhere near as good as either of the Golden Sun games.

i mean that's true, but if you grew up with snes and still have one, it was worse than being a wii u owner with a switch

i did not, so i largely agree though, but lets be honest, by that logic, a computer or a psp was better than any older nintendo system, roms lolololololololol

Somewhat gaming but more generally tech related -

I don't really like mechanical keyboards. Those that I have used feel clunky and the keys have too much resistance. Plus I'm not keen on the noise. I'd much rather use my laptop keyboard any day.

Another comes to mind -

I think the Gamecube controller is overrated. I absolutely adored it at the time (and it arguably holds up as the best controller of the generation), it feels great to hold, and for some games (e.g. Smash) the unconventional face button layout just seems perfect. However, the D-pad and C-stick are poor, and I find the analogue stick to be too stiff. Most controllers since (ignoring Wii and Wii U) have improved on shoulder buttons also.

In fact, I think the only redeeming factor of the Gamecube controller in the modern day is the unique face button layout.

@RedderRugfish I get what you're saying about the GBA/SNES, but they are also a decade apart. The SNES was Nintendos first foray into a lot of the things that SNES could do, so of course a decade later they would have gotten better at it and added improvements to the sequels and remakes of the SNES games that the GBA got.
I don't disagree with the opinion, I don't think it's quite a fair comparison, though, given the time span between them.

RedderRugfish

@Cotillion Yeah, for their times it might not have been a fair comparison. But it's been decades since both of them, and even today it seems that the SNES is still the Nintendo console held in highest regard as being the best system Nintendo has ever made.

@Buizel I like the Gamecube controller, but only for certain games. When games are designed specifically with that controller in mind, then it's great. If it's a random multiplat or you're using it as a makeshift pro controller on Switch, then it's often mediocre at best and completely terrible at worst.

@RedderRugfish speaking of both Gamecube and GBA...

It's a real shame that the GBA player was only on Gamecube. The Gamecube controller is very ill-suited towards GBA games.

I once played most of Donkey Kong Country on Wii VC with a Gamecube controller before I had a Classic controller. That was a mistake.

Currently Playing: Super Mario Maker 2 (Switch), Pokémon Conquest (DS), Severed (Wii U), The Sims 4 (PC)

RedderRugfish

@Buizel I just use an original GBA connected via a Gamecube link cable as the controller. Same great form factor of the original model, but on a TV screen instead of a tiny unlit screen.
