The Worst Console Launch Lineups of All Time!

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.
