Ports on Switch Aren’t a Problem

With the success of the Nintendo Switch, there are those who are looking for any reason to hate on it.  One of the most common criticisms of the console is that there are too many ports on the system.  Sure, the Switch has its fair share of ports, but I don’t see why that is a problem.  So, your biggest complaint is that you have too many options of games to play?  That sounds more like a compliment than a criticism.  If the Switch only had ports on it I could see the issue, but there are plenty of new games to enjoy.  There’s Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Splatoon 2, Fire Emblem Warriors, and multi-platform releases Nintendo would normally have missed out on.  More games are on the way.  Also, not many people owned a Wii U but had several titles worth porting over to the Switch.  One more part of this to consider is the Switch’s main draw, the portability (no pun intended).  You can play Skyrim on the go.  No other console can boast that.  There’s a new way to experience an older game.  Think back to the start of this console generation.  Look how many ports were released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.  They were swimming in ports over the first year.  Its silly to complain about too many ports.  How dare they give us choices.  No one is making you buy these games.  Save your money if it bothers you that much.
