Why I regret buying my Nintendo Switch Lite. I should have just bought the original and best.
The Nintendo Switch is my favourite video games console. Possibly ever. And considering how much I loved my Super Nintendo, PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360, that’s saying something.
But given my current circumstances — a parent with limited time to do anything that isn’t working, sleeping or taking care of two cacodemons disguised as young children — there’s never been a console better designed for a person like me. It’s the console that pours itself into the gaps of my busy life.
The only issue I ever had with my Nintendo Switch is I had to share it.
I’ll never forget the first scratch I got on the screen. Truly a dark day.
I was cleaning up my kids’ play area when I saw it. My Nintendo Switch. Face down. Screen down atop a gigantic pile of sharp, spiky LEGO. It was akin to waking up and seeing your pet goldfish belly up in the tank.
“NOOOOOOOOOOOOO,” I screamed. Actually screamed. I sank to my knees in physical agony, rocking back and forth in the fetal position, cradling my Switch, pausing to frantically searching for scratches, angling the screen against the light.
“No. No. No.”
Yep, scratches. Two of them. Deep ones.
- I didn’t really understand this version, is it a Switch if it… doesn’t switch?
- Of course !
- Since it’s collecting dust and you regret it so much, I’ll take it off your hands for a crisp new Benjamin. $100 cash, buddy. What’s your Zelle?
- We’re not here to resell.
- Ohh well. I use my lite because I would only play this system in portable mode. Yes the screen could be larger, but the system, as a handheld, plays better than the original.
Top it off by saving $100
- Guys, be serious. I’m not selling anything.
