Nintendo Switch = Atari Lynx

Before I get downvoted to oblivion, hear me out. There are several parallels between the Lynx and the Switch, but the one I want to stress is local multiplayer.

The Lynx was at its best when you plugged three or four together for some local multiplayer mayhem. As good as voice chat is, nothing beats being in the same room when playing multiplayer. Games like Warbirds, Gauntlet and Todds Adventure in Slime World were fantastic shared experiences. This is where the Lynx shined and where I think the Switch will too.

As good as BOTW and Mario Odyssey will be, games like Mario Kart and Splatoon will be where Switch really sells itself. I can't wait to repeat the all too brief shinanigans of those multiplayer Lynx days by linking up 8 Switches for a local Splatfest.
