RE: Nintendos best console. I know in the end its all subjective but having owned every Nintendo home console at the time of release I very much believe the Switch is going to end up being Nintendos best console. If we just look at Nintendos own games the Switch clearly has the best ever version of Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros., Splatoon, and Mario Tennis.

No photos/video – it may seem small but taking photos of Zelda, Mario, and Smash Bros. has been such an added joy on Switch and something an ordinary gamer could never do on SNES. Then theres the big one: no online.
