        $60 dollars only for the Lame NES shop games! No thanks Nintendo. If could play some of the other games might be worth it..

                    So you have to subscribe to their online service to even have the chance to PURCHASE these. Nobody hates you quite like Nintendo.

                            30 bucks per controller seems super steep. I mean for $20 more you can get a set of joycons which are way more useful. These are too novel and should also have been sold individually and at a cheaper price 24.99 being the absolute ceiling

                                  The price of those controllers is bs because it costs $60. You could buy a Nintendo Switch GAME with $60. So it's like saying, "would you rather have a Nintendo Switch game at max price or two controllers that don't even work in handheld.

                                                  We payed for online, some of us got it for some classic games, not just on one console.
                                                  I have one of those Sega Genesis *(the one you can buy at target for like 60$ I think)* and at least they have games from multiple platforms, *(well I mean like, just the genesis and Saturn but still it is better than Nintendo switch online)*
