Six years of Nintendo Switch has brought nothing but joy




1-2 Switch – it’s nothing if not different (Image: Nintendo)

As the Nintendo switch celebrates its sixth anniversary, a reader looks back on his story with the console and its many unusual experiences.

With the Nintendo Switch recently celebrated its sixth birthday, wow that really flew by didn’t it?

I look back on what I’ve done as a player over the past six years.

Now I own one Xbox Series S with Game Pass and I love it, but when it comes to gaming in general I want to be challenged in the most unorthodox of ways.

I want to approach new games with a child’s eyes and know that I’ve never done anything like this before, for better or for worse.

I like new experiences, isn’t that what a gamer is all about?

Do things that are not common for most people?

From the beginning, 1-2 switches got me pretending to eat a baguette off a controller and this game that had you trying to count how many balls rolling around in your joy-con? That itself was a piece of gaming magic, I don’t care what you think of 1-2 Switch or the console itself. That was pure genius.

Then a few years later Nintendo Lab came out. It got a bad rap for being overpriced sheets of cardboard (which it was), but anyone who’s ever put one of these kits together will tell you that it’s almost like an engineering feat.

It was clever, it was robust, and it certainly wasn’t unlike anything players had seen before, and it worked.

It’s even dabbled in VR, with impressive results.

to digress Nintendo has teamed up with Legonot a bad move for either company, and I found myself making Lego playsets of Mario and his buddies.

Then it hit me, I’ve spent most of my last few years as a player with a smile on my face and doing ridiculously stupid things that only matter to me.

I’ve become that kid again, only this time I can afford it and what a great time I had.

It’s been a strange generation for Nintendo, that’s for sure. They started out with a lot of people writing them off, but they did their own thing and it worked out for them.

Much of the success comes from Wii U ports. That says a lot more about the perception of a product than the quality of its software (but that’s another feature – in case anyone wants to dig into that?)

Nintendo is definitely moving away from being just a gaming company with its new movie and theme parks.

Still, they manage to make me smile with their intuition.

My point is that as a gaming fanatic I’ve spent a lot of my time over the past few years not actually playing games but just enjoying what develops out of it. I had a smile on my face the whole time and that’s really what it’s about.

Now I look forward to setting mine Joy-Con in a toilet paper roll and rolling it over my Homer Simpson tablet because I’m a big kid and why the hell not?

As previously reported by Reported Mediasthat was one of the reasons why Apple pulled out of the NFL Sunday Dealas it could not stream the games internationally and could not access in-market games.

For Major League Soccer, on the other hand, Apple and the league will collaborate on marketing as the Apple TV logo will appear on every MLS team jersey alongside international availability. The season pass will be available to subscribers from next month and could give a hint of what Apple would offer to the Premier League deal.
