    A few issues with this system

    My family loves this gaming system and we play A LOT. Unfortunately, there are a couple issues:

    First, the controllers do not last long and need replacement more than they should if played frequently. These are $80 a set, so buying these every 6-12 months is expensive. The left controller is the one to wear out most in our house, but you can only buy these in pairs. I just spent another $160 on 2 pairs of controllers last weekend because the left controllers (joystick) was no longer working.

    Second, there are not a ton of quality games for this platform and it seems like we can only find a "good game" 1-2 times a year. When new games average $60, buying something that is just ok doesn't make sense.

    I would buy again because my son loves it

    I would buy again because my son loves this console and so do I. The game is fun to play and since the remotes are small it’s easier to move and have a lil work out when playing depending on which games you play. I only gave 4 stars because I wish the price would have been a little cheaper especially since the games are a bit expensive as well.

    A Big Hit With the Kids

    Having grown up in the '80s/'90s, I own all of the Nintendo consoles from the original NES to the Switch. The Switch is a big change from previous consoles and a welcome one. The kids love the system and we are glad that we made the purchase.

    Pros
    - Variety of games from kids to mature
    - Portability: connect easily to the TV and can be quickly changed to the portable option
    - Ease of use
    - Variety of accessories

    Cons
    - Small cartridges which makes them easy to lose especially with younger kids
    - Difficult for children to take the controllers off of the portable screen/system portion

    Nintendo Switch

    Nintendo has come out with another neat entertainment system!
    I find this one is basically the same as a 3DS, but fancier.
    Games can be purchased online.. or you can purchase a physical game card (which comes in a very large case for its size)

    It's great fun and keeps the kids entertained!!
