Maybe Nintendo finally gets it with the Switch?

After using the new system for a week, Miguel Lopez from Glixel shares his opinions on the Switch

It's also encouraging that the Switch is absent any overt gimmicks. Yeah, you could argue that the system's fundamental concept – the fact that it's a handheld that can be a console that has Wiimotes attached to either side of it – is an amalgam of every gimmick Nintendo has ever conceived, but those gimmicks don't seem to be driving things as manifestly as, say, motion controls during the Wii era, when it felt like every Nintendo game was burdened by a waggle mechanic. This says to me that Nintendo is interested in honing the fundamentals and might just understand, really, why we love their games. And that's heartening.
