It was the only console I actually regretted buying. I doubt I came anywhere near a dollar/hour ratio with it.

Nintendo's only real problem was the stupid name.

I find it baffling that people hated this name so when both Sony & Microsoft's consoles sounds like kindergarten toys but everyone loves them sooo much.
I can't say their names with a straight face honestly.

I remember already back in 95 I laughed at Sonys new console because I couldn't believe they would go with such a stupid name.

The problem was that the Wii U name caused confusion since it sounds more like an addon than a new console. It didn't help that the console itself looked almost identical to the Wii and all the marketing showed the Gamepad.
I still don't know how XBox manages to sell more consoles with even more idiotic names than Wii U though.

Because xbox uses numbers.
Wii went to Wii U and people were asking what the heck is that?
I asked people.... do u have a Wii U? People would say “yea I have a Wii”.
Thats how confused people were.

i have a confession I like the Switch more than Wii U because of its game library.
I like it cause it uses cartridges. No worry about disc scratches, uses cheap micro SD Cards for Storage.
As a portable device it's the most powerful one out there. As a Home Console its the weakest.
This is just Nintendos mentailty "Oh we dont wanna compete with Sony or Microsoft."

Everything else was well done.

Nintendo actually created tons of exclusive games for it, UNLIKE THE Switch which primarily gets left-over ports from Wii U. That alone shows how stupid the masses are.

They should have called it the Super Wii or whatever. Even such a name would have been a way better choice.
You need to stop with this lie that the Switch is only getting "left-over ports from Wii U." If you bothered to look instead of continuing this crusade to make Wii U look better, there are tons of original exclusives. Get over it. Switch has stuff you can't get on Wii U and the library is a share of original games with titles that PlayStation and Xbox have had.
Professional athletes lack intelligence to understand real world issues.
