    I am super skeptical of Breath of the Wild getting such high scores

    I can think of too many examples of a hyped game dropping, getting perfect scores and raved about as one of the best games ever and then six months later the consensus is actually that it was "okay" or "mostly good, but"

    Granted, my skepticism stems mostly from me trying to find reasons to not drop £300 on a Switch

    hmm, what are these examples?

    this is not a gotcha moment I am largely ignorant of vidya games these past 5 years or so

    Every Call of Duty and Madden game released in the last 5 years that has been a minimal update and essentially a rehash?

    those get rave reviews? how could a madden game get called a best game ever when everyone knows they're all rehashes?

    The fact that Nintendo intentionally made the cartridges taste bad so kids won't eat them blows my mind

    Sorry that it happened to you but the system seems pretty broken and cyclical.

    I've heard people on podcasts now that have between 3-5 switch preorders just to hedge and like see how to pick one up at the earliest possible time. So they'll pick up one and cancel the rest. When a preorder is such a zero committment thing like it seems to be it's logical that they sometimes don't order enough stock in. I mean it's amateurish to run out, and on top of that to not fulfil by date of order (if ur friend is getting one). But I get why they don't order in 100% if 20% or whatever usually end up being hedge orders and canceled.

    Preorders should be pay everything at order. Order one, get one.

    That is a very fair point. My counter argument would be ZombieU. Probably one of, if not the best, external vendor release title of this generation.

    I ended up liking the WiiU, in the end, because it got Xenogame 1 and 2. And the Mario games were top notch.

    SS is the only one of those that I've played, but i could see that being a good example, idk how well it reviewed but im sure it was hyped (and it definitely doesn't fall anywhere near "best game ever" category)

    The Wii was a huge letdown.

    The WiiU is the first Nintendo Console i just skipped.

    There's, like, 3-4 games i care about but none of them are strong enough contenders to get me to buy one ASAP

    the xeno games were the only thing that made me contemplate a WiiU. it was not a particularly strong compulsion. shelling out hundreds of dollars for a game or two seems excessive. especially considering that gaming no longer plays such a central role in my leisure time.
