Because the Switch doesn't fit in my god damn pocket and thus is awkward to take with me to doctor's offices without me looking like a total manchild carrying around a carrying case strapped to my hip.

That, and because the 3DS/2DS can play games that the Switch cannot play (and vice-versa).

You are worried about looking like a manchild with a case, but you don't think you give off that image with playing a 3DS?

The switch is not and will never be a handheld, the switch is portable but it’s not a handheld.

No because the 3DS is for all ages. Not just for children. If that's the case then. All game consoles are for children, and are considered toys.

That makes you no better than him. Carrying around a bag that looks like a purse looks far more weird than just carrying around a 3DS.

When I picked up my 3DS in 2013, an FB friend said "that's positively current gen!" It *was* pretty quick for me - and now that I am still working on it and have more games for it both in the backlog and on the wishlist, I'm pretty much reverting to my default mode. At my pace, I doubt Switch even becomes a consideration before it has at least one successor.

Then don't use a bag that looks like a freaking purse.
I swear y'all make this more contrived than it really is. If you don't like the Switch, you don't like the Switch, I don't understand why mental loops need to be made for that.

Everyone knows it's not a toy when you carry it in a fanny pack.

That's a total load of bull. Carrying a Switch is no different than carrying a 3DS, in terms of narrow-minded judgemental people calling someone a "man-child" for having one. And if someone is really so frightened of what idiots like that think of them that they are only comfortable by hiding the system, then that person really IS as immature as those people would claim.
