My daughter and my mother recently teamed up to get me a pretty sweet birthday present – a Nintendo Switch. I’ve never really been a Nintendo guy, mind you. Back in the late 1980s, when your choice was either the SEGA Master System or the Nintendo Entertainment System, I went SEGA. At the time, I regretted the decision. A lot.
SEGA had few, if any, licensed games, so I thought I was missing out on familiar titles. Over the years, as consoles came and went, I did get a Nintendo 64, which featured the two greatest WWE games in history – Wrestlemania 2000 and No Mercy. I bought a Wii when I was in my 30s with the idea that it would replace the gym… but it didn’t. Meanwhile, I kept up with my Sony Playstation, which began with the first console in 1997 and that has been updated every iteration since.
However, the truth is The Princess wanted me to have a Nintendo Switch. She’s sweet that way. And I wanted her to be able to use one, as well. I’d rather she play games than get sucked into the YouTube void of Minecraft videos and Blind Bag Unboxings. So on my birthday, it was Nintendo Switch day.
