Top 10 Worst Things About the Nintendo Switch

The Top Ten

1 A Wii U Copy

No, it's not. - Gametoon

It’s not copying the Wii U. It’s what the Wii U should have been. - thunderstar1124

The guy who made this list is completely ignorant.

Not at all. It's a console, and a handheld.

2 Graphics are Awful

Again, u just poor

it doesn't have to be the most realistic game you have ever played to be fun - GleamingShadow

Just because the Switch isn’t as powerful as the competition doesn’t mean it’s incapable of producing amazing looking games like Mario Odyssey. - thunderstar1124

3 Bad Game Catalog

The switch actually has a lot of really amazing games. - Gametoon

We can all agree that the Switch had a great library last year, But we have gotten literally nothing this year - B1ueNew

It wasn’t big at launch, but now the library is amazing. The eShop is an absolute gold mine of amazing indie games. - thunderstar1124

4 The Battery Life

This I agree with - Randomator

The Battery Life sucks. It's fine in the Dock because it's constantly Charging it but for a Handheld Device that's made for use on-the-go, you'd think they'd make sure it has a long-lasting battery. Mine wouldn't even last half a full day from full charge.

Okay, here's something I agree with. Three hours to fully charge and only six hours of battery. A DS and 3DS last longer than this combined, and they both came out six and thirteen years earlier. - Gametoon

I believe that too

5 Pay to Play Online

This is nothing new. Microsoft and Sony have been doing this for awhile - Randomator

Look, I know it's annoying, but it's still less money than Xbox and PS4 per year. - Gametoon

That's not nintendo only, and it's only 20 bucks a year - GleamingShadow

I wanted to play Super mario party BUT then Pay.. I went evey sad when that happend I don't want nintendo to turn into Microsoft and sony

6 The Price


7 Only Marios and Sonics

Legend of Zelda breath of the Wild Arms and Splatoon 2 what the hell are those? - Randomator

There are WAY more games than that. Zelda, Kirby, Splatoon, etc. - Gametoon

Is sonic nintendo? no. it is sega

who is the main character in legend of zelda? - GleamingShadow

What idiot added this to the list? There are 6 games with Mario and 3 games with Sonic compared to the hundreds of games in the Switch’s library. - thunderstar1124

8 Controls are Bad

They are good - GleamingShadow

No, they are not. Blame the controls on one of the games (if one with bad controls exists), not the controller itself. Odyssey’s controls are quite perfect, actually. - thunderstar1124

9 It is Expensive

Not as expensive as its competition. - Gametoon

It is good because a lot of people can play at once and it has good games.

Yea... it's a game system that's about how much one of those costs - GleamingShadow

200 is a more reasonable price - Smash64

10 Bad Graphics

Do you even HAVE a switch? - Gametoon

The graphics are great maybe your just poor - GleamingShadow

Whoever made this is CLEARLY a biased Nintendo hater who probably doesn’t even HAVE a Switch.

The Contenders

11 So Many Glitches

Blame the game, not the console. - thunderstar1124

Yes there is so many glitch's in so many games but still a very fun console to play on.

12 Storage is Awful

Just get physical copies of games. If you don’t want to, buy a MicroSD Card. You can easily get one with 128 GB for $20 or less, and they’re constantly getting cheaper. - thunderstar1124

13 The Joycon Can Easily Be Broken

The Xbox One Can Too - VideoGamefan5

14 Only 3 Launch Games

There were five, not three. - Gametoon

The launch titles on the PS4 or Xbox One were only decent at best, while BOTW is a spectacular game that is sure to keep you busy for a long time, even if you were never really a Zelda fan like I was. - thunderstar1124

15 They Sell Wii U Ports at Full Price

I got most of the original copies of those ports for less than 20$ brand new or pre owned - B1ueNew

16 No Home Screen Music

So? - Randomator

That's the magic of the Switch! Yes, I like the "home menu music" style(like on the 3ds or something) too, but still! The Switch has such a nice, mature touch to it! If you want menu music, just stick with a Wii U or a 3ds/2ds(or a Wii/Ds/Gamecube, but those are older consoles).

17 The Dock
18 Very Few Games

Also a new system
wait a while we will get more - GleamingShadow

True, But When Time Comes By, You Will Regret Saying This - VideoGamefan5

Not anymore. - thunderstar1124

19 Nintendo Switch Online

The Wii U has free online, so I am going to keep mine.

Only good point on this list - thunderstar1124

20 Overpriced

This is literally the 3rd time it’s on the list

Nintendo Switch with 2 joycons bundle - 300$
1 game - 60$
Pro controller - 70$/Or a extra pair of joycons - 80$
1 year of online play - 20$
PS4 Slim
PS4 slim 500GB bundle with a game included - 300$
Extra controller - 60$
Another game - 10$-60$ (Depends if it is an older used game or a brand new one that came out or any other)
1 year of PS Plus to play online + Free games every month. - 60$

21 You Cannot Talk Online

With people like Putz12 on Splatoon there’s a good reason why - thunderstar1124

22 No Virtual Console

Virtual Console has been on the Wii has had N64 games, Gameboy games, NES & SNES games. But the Nintendo Switch doesn't have virtual console at all. Hell, even the 3DS has virtual console

23 Hard to Hold Controllers

Get a Pro Controller. It's absolutely worth the price. - thunderstar1124

The controllers are to hold. Like when you are playing smash bros you are trying to get onto the ledge and you drop the controller

24 Too Many Indie Games

There's a reason for that. The Nintendo Switch simply is just a better platform for Indie Games than the PS4 or Xbox One. - thunderstar1124

But there are some really great indie games like Stardew Valley and Undertale.

25 Joy Con Drift

The Joy Cons are $80 and should not have problems if they cost that much money, and if you have a Nintendo Switch Lite this can not be fixed. Switch Online is worse though.

This is very annoying my switch does it all the time
