Well... mostly that was just complaining about system performance
Complaining about system performance? The "upgrade" is less capable than the system it is supposed to replace. That's about as valid a complaint as there can be. That said, I never complained about the performance, I pointed out that, while it would be quite a winner in Nintendo's handheld lineup (e.g. I actually like the hardware), they chose to position it as a replacement for a more capable system. That makes it a loser; it's positioned to be, quite literally, a downgrade.
along with the lack of a second screen
Which, again, would be a non-issue if Nintendo had added the Switch to their handheld lineup, rather than replacing a more capable system. The hardware, for a handheld system, is good; but they're billing it as a console, by which standard it is crap.
Look at it this way: The Geo Metro wasn't a horrible car, for what it was. It was cheap, fuel efficient, and got you from point A to point B. It wasn't built really well and it is obvious that corners were cut, but that was fine because Geo sold it as what it was: cheap transportation. If they had sold it as a sports car, luxury car, or even anything of any quality, it would have been complete crap.
The Switch isn't a horrible system, for what it should have been sold as. It is small, clocked down for power efficiency, and can play games on the go. It isn't built with performance in mind and it is obvious that corners were cut, but that would be fine if Nintendo sold it as what it is; a high-end portable. Instead, they sell is as a full console with portable capabilities and, at that, it is complete crap.
Sorry, it's just a fact that, while it outclasses Nintendo's handhelds, it doesn't come close to the Wii U. I'll repeat myself, once more, so you don't miss it this time: The Switch is a great handheld; it's just a shitty console.
I don't understand why the very same people who, 5 years ago, said the Wii U was underpowered crap are, 5 years later, saying the Switch, which is less powerful than the Wii U, is the freakin' bee's knees. Compared to anything in the DS line, I'd fully agree, the Switch is an awesome bit of gear; but it's not meant to compare with that line, it's meant to compare with the Wii U, and it fails at that.
