    The problem with switch is that it doesn’t have alot of story games like gta 5 or red dead I think that Xbox and PS are on top of Nintendo



  2. Jeffery Liu on August 15, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Where is the pc you are talking about? That is a laptop if you don’t notice.



  3. Otaku on August 15, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    I meant to search online capability products with big libearys sorrry but switch is not wat i meant

    Don’t forget when Playstation comes out with a new system they crash your old one with updates.. Can we say similar to apple?

    Who else thinks console wars should stop



  6. izeizei on August 15, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Why he keeps saying that Nintendo Switch is cheap??? On its own, the MSRP/RRP Nintendo Switch price is $299 in the USA and £279 in the UK!!! Like WTF is cheap about it compared to Xbox and PS4 which both are for $299.00???

    Why do they keep coming out with a new console almost every year? I started saving up for an Xbox 360 when it came out, and when I saved enough a few years later, Xbox one came out. I tried saving up, and then when I finally saved enough, that was discontinued, too. Same with Nintendo consoles. Everyone in my school had a 3ds, and I really wanted one, so I started saving up. I finally saved enough to afford one and guess what happens next? The Switch came out. I was lucky to get a Wii while it was still in stores in 2013.

    Well I’m one of those people who find the XO ui excellent…..way better and faster than the PS4 ui…..just my opinion



  9. shayan ar on August 15, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    this guy is a Nintendo fan seriously who will buy Nintendo these days??? thumbs down



  10. Luke Beckstrom on August 15, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    how does nintendo not have as many specialized games when compared to PS4. he talked about the xbox not having “sellable” specific games. The switch literally is sold to mainly sell nintendo switch games…. there was a huge contradiction there.



  11. LyonKing👑 on August 15, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Shooters: Xbx/Ps4
    Racing:Xbx
    Arcade:Switch
    Cant say much on other genres



  12. Dude on August 15, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    It’s so obviously the switch. Possibly the best console ever if they can deliver some gamecube games and maybe plz some n64 games. No other console can compare, the PS4 is a close second because of it’s insane exclusives.



  13. MCGlenn81 on August 15, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    Okay, Im still on Xbox 360 since its launch, got the 360 S in 2010, now my 6 year old is ripping through the all the Lego titles. I just got lord of the rings the return of the king, an original xbox title that works on 360 and its a great game for father and son. I would still have my PS2 only it failed.



  14. א MyriadColours א on August 15, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    I’m a female (mobile) gamer and ever since I was a kid my family thought I wouldn’t like these games so they never got anything, I’m tryna save up for something to play w the homies so I was just wondering what was the best thing to play on cus I’m kinda leaning to PC or PS 😅😅 idk anyone wanna help?



  15. Reese Blevins on August 15, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    This review is so biased, they give the Xbox so much flack



  16. idk what to name me on August 15, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    we you have the Xbox the Nintendo the PC and the jet engine



  17. Jack Thatkid on August 15, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    Switch number one for exlusive. Duh



  18. Kaleb Harris on August 15, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Its also important to consider the price of the switch games and accessories, which are the most expensive.



  19. Daniel Baldonado on August 15, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    Someday if i have a money, I’ll buy nentendo switch



  20. ftnrbhmwk on August 15, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    I’m glad you didn’t include those over priced Nvidia shield Gen 2… Terrible. Tell those sellers on eBay to stop it!!!! Especially when G-Force is holding you hostage for downloading games. They only have 50 games at the most. Scamers!!!



  21. who me? on August 15, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    It just ain’t $300 now



  22. Jean Lopez on August 15, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Its not smart to include pc on a consol discution its obvious that it is alott more future proof and game librarie and everything its just dumb



  23. Sudo Penguin on August 15, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Mothrfukr I didn’t come to hear about PC’s



  24. Bella C on August 15, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    I have an xbox nintendo switch and a pc I refuse to get playstation. I hate it so much



  25. Gavin Campbell on August 15, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Switch is the best! Don’t @ me! Lol



  26. Brenden W on August 15, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    A console is by definition not a pc



  27. Epic Gamer on August 15, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    But y tho



  28. Joshxstorm Law on August 15, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    In my opinion nintendo has the best exsculsives games



  29. pmacnz on August 15, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Switch lite $199. And It’s an indie God tier console



  30. Abaddan on August 15, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    I do agree. PC is by far my main, but the switch as a secondary is 1000% worth it. So I completely agree with the assessment of it being the perfect side thing. I can take it with me unlike my pc to play on the go.



  31. kiril toshkov on August 15, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    After you have pc/latop you can actually get nintendo switch/switch lite cuz you can play your favourite AAA games portable, but its overkill to get pc and ps/xbox its just pointless(this is for casual players…)



  32. Bird on August 15, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    This vid was made exactly 1 year 1 day ago



  33. MrDjafal1 on August 15, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    14:30 For the result 🙂



  34. Dan Carlu Degamo on August 15, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    So you forgot the legendary console Playstation 2



  35. Bo J. on August 15, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    PC is obviously the best I would say. Spent 1000 dollars and now I can play any game I want and many of them I get for free. If ever the graphics needs outstrips my computer I’ll just buy a new GPU, no problem. Largest library in gaming as well, easily



  36. ZetsubouYami on August 15, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    The switch is a next gen console, really shouldn’t have put it on this list especially when the PS5 and Xbox series X (Same gen as the switch) are realeasing soon.



  37. kings dead akkount on August 15, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    A Pc isn’t a console



  38. eternalnut on August 15, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    Uhhh, where is SNES?



  39. Big Mike on August 15, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    Just get a PC and a switch



  40. Tucker Hill on August 15, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    You can tell these videos are meant for your mom



  41. Sebastian Arritola on August 15, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    You sound like Linus from Linustechtips



  42. Bo Zhao on August 15, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    I could say Nintendo Switch is the best overoll gaming console for the entire family and use it on the go and a great entertainment for party. if you are a serious gamer seeking for a particular game, often exclusive on a PS or/and Xbox, it is the reason to get PS or Xbox. I got the Switch console last week and my entire family is happy to game together at weekends.



  43. Robloxie on August 15, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    I have a Nintendo none of the rest



  44. Supreme Kai on August 15, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    The oculus quest 2 will be the best



  45. pmacnz on August 15, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    PC gaming is so expensive. Constant upgrades. I quit a while ago. Ps 4 pro and switch is the perfect combo



  46. Colby on August 15, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Switch is very flimsy



  47. Josh Polman on August 15, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Was hanging out for the “best multiplayer”… but it never came.
    Bit of an oversight guys! For some people, local co-op is a big factor!



  48. Cuebix on August 15, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    Only downside for the Switch for me is the price of physical games do not fall by much.



  49. معاك قلبي on August 15, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    I have three consoles per Xbox 360 nintendo switch no pc pc bad



  50. 123idreamjeannie on August 15, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Saying the switch wins as a side console is the same as saying it’s the loser unless you have the Xbox or ps already or it’s number 2 but I’m not gonna tell you what #1 is
    Makes no sense!!!
