I-U

The Wii U is a more complete Nintendo console than the Nintendo Switch, and I believe it will be regarded more fondly once the Nintendo Switch generation is over.

Games with Metroid in the title are usually better games than Metroid games.

The standard 2DS is the best handheld made by Nintendo.

"The Wii U is a more complete Nintendo console than the Nintendo Switch"

Nope.
I think otherwise.
I found really hard to get more than 20 Wii U games that suitable for me but for Nintendo Switch, i have found more than 100 Switch games.

Top 8 Konami's Rhythm games:
1. Dance Dance Revolution
2. Para Para Paradise
3. DrumMania
4. Beatmania IIDX
5. Pop'n Music
6. KeyboardMania
7. Martial Beat
8. DANCE EVOLUTION

What do you mean by this? What makes a system "complete"?

@I-U I have no idea what constitutes a console as "more complete" but the Switch is basically what the Wii U wanted to be but fully realized, and considering most of that console's heavy hitters now have either Switch ports or multiplatform releases in the cases of LEGO City, Wonderful 101 and Fatal Frame, the Wii U will probably never really crawl out of super-niche status for the forseeable future.

The Wii U has access to a majority of Nintendo's best games from the NES, SNES, N64, Nintendo DS and GBA eras, has backwards compatibility with the Wii and has its own library. The Switch has its library, I'll give it that the Wii U games that have been brought over have been better, NES and SNES. The more complete selection from Nintendo is provided on the Wii U. This could easily change for the Switch, but I don't think Nintendo is willing to expand what they offer of their legacy libraries.

Metroid Prime Hunters, Metroid: Other M, Metroid Prime: Federation Force and Metroid Prime Pinball are usually considered Metroid games in name only. I think a majority of those titles are better than the games that usually are considered "actual" Metroid games that follow the series' traditional gameplay structure.

@I-U Thanks for clarifying!

By this metric I'd agree...Wii U is arguably the best Nintendo console for legacy content. That said, I personally prefer the Switch by far. We're at the point now where Switch has basically every Wii U game I'd want to play, and often better versions of them at that. The portability/hybrid concept is a game-changer for me, and the wider library (Nintendo exclusives, third party, indies) is altogether the best of any Nintendo console IMO. Plus I find the Wii U quite sluggish, dislike going back to the Gamepad / Wii U pro controller, and don't have many Wii games that I enjoy going back to. Virtual console has yet to be topped though!

Metroid Prime Hunters, Metroid: Other M, Metroid Prime: Federation Force and Metroid Prime Pinball are usually considered Metroid games in name only.

Haven't played enough of the series to have an opinion on this, but I agree that it's an unpopular opinion!

Recently replayed the GBA port of Sonic 1, Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis, because I felt like it. Sorry, I don't think this is one of the worst games out there. Yeah, it does have some bugs and its slow down problems, otherwise I enjoyed it as much as any other version of Sonic 1 I've played.

Though playing it again did bring back memories of playing this on the go, well before the DS collection or the awesome 3DS port.

@Sunsy Maybe by itself it's not as bad but considering the plethora of amazing GBA ports of older games like the Super Mario Advance series, the Final Fantasy ports, Tales of Phantasia, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Tekken 3 and Super Ghouls n' Ghosts, it just looks flat out lazy on SEGA's part, especially given someone would end up making a working prototype of Sonic 1 running much more faithfully to how it does on Genesis on GBA as proof that it was actually completely capable of being a good port

@TheFrenchiestFry It is the weakest compared to other 16-bit ports on GBA, just had some thoughts replaying the game recently. Yes, that fanmade Sonic 1 proof of concept is indeed amazing.

Scribblenautes DC, kinda sucks, I mean the DC characters are really cool, don't get me wrong, but I hated the fact that I couldn't use the same word twice or I would lose points, And I know its to push you to be more creative but the way it dose this, really sucks, Say if I wanted to make a jet pack, or a ladder, If I made a ladder, I might have forgot to make it big, and now its to small, well to bad for you, you can't use anymore words with the word ladder in it, or you going to lose points,

And say I i'm creative, I do said thing but I mess it up a little bit, If I go back to re-type it, I still lose points,

This was such an awful way to do the system, and TBH it shouldn't have been there to begin with, This is the game were you can do whatever you want, but now I got to feel bad for taking the easy way out.

It is why I have yet to finish that game to this day, it was just to annoying.

@Snatcher That sounds pretty bad honestly. Guess that’s where the series started it’s decline, with it fizzling out with the switch game.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

Snatcher

@VoidofLight No kidding, the one of the wii u, and the app are waaaaay better, the one of the wii u being my favorite, I never played the wii you version but I played the port on the switch, which comes with well....the dc version,

For some reason tho, the switch port for SNU Has not nintendo characters, and they got ride of memes, but hey, can't miss what I never had.

@Snatcher By Switch, I was mostly talking about the most recent game, which probably killed the series. It was a party game of sorts I believe.

@VoidofLight Oh you mean showdown, oh ya that game is crap.

What didn't you like about the New XL model? I have a New 3DS XL and the visuals to me seem to get fuzzier on the bigger screen. My eyes have at times been bothered while playing, something that I haven't experienced with non-XL models. The Switch when I play in handheld mode sometimes plays with my eyes as well and I have to adjust at times. It could be due to me being near sighted.

@I-U It's stylus is too small, my palms cover the speakers, it feels like style over function.

If you see the New 3DS XL as fuzzy, maybe consider getting the smaller New 3DS (if you don't already have it).

@HotGoomba Didn't they only sell the smaller ones in Japan? I know you couldn't get them in America, and how people got a bit disappointed by it, because it meant we weren't getting the cool faceplates.

I just compared my 2DS stylus to my New 3DS XL stylus, and I can see why I don't play games that require much touch gameplay on the XL. You would think for a bigger device the stylus would either be the same length as base models if not larger. I also wasn't aware that they put the speakers toward the bottom of the New 2DS XL model. They have the speakers up top for the New 3DS XL model, so I'm not sure why they made that change for the 2DS line.

At the time, I already had both a 3DS and a 2DS, so I went for something different with the New 3DS line and got a XL model. I don't regret my purchase, but I certainly prefer my smaller handhelds. I do wish I had gotten more than just one basic 2DS back then though while they were going for $99 or lower after the prices were cut. The base 2DS is the best way to play Nintendo DS and 3DS games in my opinion with how comfortable the design is.

For the most part yes, but the smaller New 3DS was actually bundled with Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer in the U.S.
