Been playing my Switch docked for a few months just wanted to see if it warped at all from all the Zelda action no warping but oh man going from a pro controller to handheld cramps my hands extremely bad.... Nintendo needs some pro joy cons for adults

They'd just have to round out the edges akin to the sides of the PsP and Vita really but the console at least feels better than the Gamepad. That Wii U Gamepad was the worst feeling controller I've ever used and that's probably why I'm more lenient with the Switch and haven't even invested in a Pro yet back in the WIi U days I refused to buy games that didn't support the Pro so understand that how a controller feels is extremely important. The controller is how you get a feel for a game and you should never be aware of it as that breaks immersion.

If you think the Switch is uncomfortable, you should try the 3DS.

I can't even play the 3DS without my hands going numb. And I don't have huge hands.

The Switch is the most comfortable handheld they've ever made.
In 1920, alcohol was outlawed in the United States.
Freedom was outlawed 100 years later.

Yeah, I can't really play handheld at all. If I really have to play off TV, I just go with tabletop mode. Still, I very rarely undock the system anyway. I don't like the small screen for most of the games.

I am an adult with big man hands, and I say the joy-cons are just fine. But just like an adult I will admit that this is my opinion and that not everyone is the same.

I’m sorry they feel too small tc, maybe you should try holding it differently.
It seems I cannot find the bathroom.

Maybe it’s just cuz I grew up with Nintendo handhelds, but I’ve never had any of the comfort issues that people complain about. The switch feels perfect in my hands (and those are pretty large).

Different people, different tastes/hands. I can play the 3DS just fine, but not the Switch.

the issue is the weight distribution and plastic quality are garbage
