After months of speculation, we finally learned some solid details about the core features, peripherals, and software library of the Nintendo Switch at Nintendo's January 12 press event. I (and by extension, my social media networks) reacted to the event with fervent enthusiasm, but the showing elicited a mixed reaction from the gaming press. Many lamented the system's price point and lack of a pack-in title, while others found the software on display to be underwhelming. (I don't know how you could - I mean, Xenoblade 2! Super Mario Odyssey! Shin Megami Tensei!) Some were even quick to call the Switch launch lineup one of the worst ever. But with a powerhouse like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild leading the charge, is it really? Let's take a look back at five other launch libraries that didn't quite measure up to see if hindsight really is 20/20.
