    Definitely good reasons to buy the last generation consoles ... you just gotta be sure that's what you're supposed to be bringin' home.

    That said, going Switch over Wii U is definitely worth it, if affordable. Huge, categorical improvement.

    I got one I can sell you cheap!

    I'll never forget the day my wife told me our granddaughter was going home from Church with another couple to play with his Wii.

    Friend, I am telling you this for your own health, sanity, and relationship with your son:

    He means a Nintendo Switch. Probably with Smash Bros. or Pokemon Sword.

    I have a lot of old consoles in our garage because of that. The resell value doesn’t seem worth it, I’d rather keep it in the garage gathering dust in case I want to play it in the future. Last console game I played was destiny on Xbox one and I only play dota overlords on mobile now so that’s cheap.

    And new Animal Crossing! \o/

    ...well, this thread spun wildly off-topic.

    I guess we'll pick up the trial talk again tomorrow when there's something new to discuss.

    Well I got the switch it was only $399aud and Pokemon sword was $69 but he wanted Mario cart. Wife was angry and said a five year old is too young for video games. I guess I should’ve run it by her first. Now my daughter wants a piano since her brother got something. At least my son enjoyed his first day at school.
