I love the Switch to the point that I can forgive many of its shortcomings. Of course, it can’t do 4K. It often fails to have stable performance. It is awash with terrible ports. Oh, and the online infrastructure could be much, much better.

All things worthy of criticism. But they were never totally dealbreakers for me. After all, if I let higher framerates and resolutions dictate my buying habits, I’ll miss out on a lot of the best Nintendo Switch games. Games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and the just-released Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, to name just a few.
