I have a PS4, Xbox one, switch, ps vita and a gaming pc (though it’s beginning to show signs of struggling and will need an upgrade)

I own a gaming PC and Switch and have been gaming a long time started with a ZX Spectrum and I have owned many systems over the years.

Apart from old consoles obviously, the Switch is my only console. I've been gaming since the NES and I've always stuck to Nintendo consoles. I've never bought any others (though I must admit, the Wii era did test that policy to the limit...) Partly because I've just always preferred Nintendo. Partly due to some (admittedly silly) sense of loyalty, but mainly because I feel I have more than enough to satisfy me even just sticking to Nintendo consoles (in fact, even though it's unlikely in this relentlessly fast-paced day and age, if a couple of months went by with no new games to get, far from complaining about it, I would be more than grateful for the breather). I don't know how I'd cope if I had a PS4/Xbox as well. I think it would get pretty overwhelming. I feel that deliberately limiting myself to being a Nintendo-only gamer makes my life a lot simpler and easier.

Plus, the way I see it, if you're patient, you don't actually miss out on as much as you might think. For example, in the 90s, I may have missed out on all of SEGA's stuff, but within a couple of years, it was pretty much all available on Nintendo consoles in some form or another. Or, as an N64 owner, I may have missed on some big PS1 exclusives like Resident Evil, Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid, Tomb Raider, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, etc. But all those games have since been ported/remade on Nintendo consoles. So, while I may have missed out on Final Fantasy VII back in 1997, all I had to do was wait a mere 22 years and look who's laughing now! (well, not me, as I'm not actually interested in Final Fantasy VII, but you get the idea...)

Got Switch, PS4, and Xbox. Spend most of my time on Switch and PS4 but the games Xbox exclusively have can be pretty good despite their reputation, especially Gears 5 recently.

Put this way not all games are on all platform and because of GPU some looks better then others but those others you can't go portable like a Switch. So there comes a give and take.

Switch - spend 90% of my gaming on
PS4 - I mainly got it for God of War
3DS XL - Mainly just for Pokemon
DS lite and Original - I mainly use them to play Gameboy Advance games
Gamboy, Gameboy Pocket, Gameboy Advance, Gameboy Advance SP
PS3 - Never use it
Gamecube - Has some of favourite games love it
Wii - I hate the wii but I got it for Mario Galaxy and No More heroes I sometimes play on it
Gamegear - I have a gold coloured one, I don't know how rare that is. I bought years ago but sadly it died.
PSP - Use to be my favourite handheld before the switch. Had so many good games

I've also been considering buying the next Xbox console. With Microsoft owning Banjo, hopefully they'll release a new game and i'll definitely buy it. I'm not into Halo or Gears but usually always get every Nintendo and Playstation console but have been thinking switching from playstation to xbox next gen.

@Haywired I'm the same way. I've always bought Nintendo because Zelda and Metroid are my main console jams, and I usually have a gaming-capable PC - never a high-end rig, but decent enough to play the RPGs and strategy titles I love. And I'm into handheld gaming, so I always get Nintendo's handhelds even if I skip a console generation (or two, because Wii U just didn't do it for me).

And there's just never enough time in the day for me to need a second console. Sure, I miss some games here and there, but I always have more than enough games to keep me busy. I also have other hobbies. And two kids and a dog, and a job, and a house to keep clean, and a wife who might like a little attention every once in a while.

I'm not going to knock Sony and Microsoft's offerings, I'm not that kind of fan. Playstation and XBox have been great consoles from day one. I have many fond memories of playing Oddworld and Final Fantasy VII on my roommate's OG Playstation, and Halo on my cousin's XBox, and to this day there are console exclusives that I'd love to play. It would be great to play Spider-Man and RDR right now. And yes, high-end graphics ARE nice.

But there are console exclusives on Nintendo's machines, too, and they happen to be some of my favorite games. And I don't actually need those super HD graphics to enjoy a game.

So I'm Nintendo only, not because I'm some rabid fanboy but because I like Zelda, I don't have four arms and two heads, and there aren't 48 hours in a day.

Remind yourself that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.

Nope, I'm generally a hardware enthusiast. I have a PS4, PS3, high-end PC, a Wii, and a Switch.
