I hate this guy and his high and mighty attitude. ''were you this? No? I was'' Here's a plan, instead of trying to compare the switch right away, lets take it at face value right now, Besides, who cares what windows look like when you're hacking up a hoard of slimes with Ragnar.
I was there, and Nintendos never been about what he says it was, at least not without major drawbacks to go with it.
NES was 1983 technology in a late 80's system.
SNES had a really slow processor and restrictive licensing costs meaning some 3rd party games would leave out things in the SNES ports
N64 might have been good tech if it had big enough storage to feed that tech. It didn't. Doesn't matter what Siilcon Graphics articles might have said about features if 90% of games don't use anything but ugly blocky polygon models because there wasn't room on the cart for the data needed for anything better.
GC, again, mini discs didn't have enough room. Yeah it was better tech than PS2, so? Everything that gen was.
Despite all this I love my Nintendo systems because Mario, Zelda, Metroid, etc. They might not have the most, latest, best, tech, but they have the games I like and find most fun. Even the Wii U stomps on my PS4 in that regard.
