It seems like a lot of games media want to ignore the Wii U ever happened. Just as - y'know - they wanted to ignore it existed while it was still active.
I went through a few of those lists and it's insulting the amount of times that lines akin to "incredible that such a good game that was stuck on the failure that was the Wii U" or "I breathed a sigh of relief when this game was ported to Switch/[other platform] rather than be forgotten with the Wii U" popped up. Maybe if those assholes hadn't been telling everyone to avoid the system while it was still active, it wouldn't have been such a flop and all of its great games that they oh-so-conveniently discovered as "hidden gems" after the fact but were initially "JUST ONE GAME, which I'm not buying a system for!" [for every game for the system] wouldn't have to supposedly wait for ports for them to get the stick out of their ass and play or recommend them. "Oh, but buying a console is so expensive!" Bitch, half of y'all lemmings dropped nigh-on half a grand to upgrade the PS4 you already bought to a PS4 Pro just for a modest bump from 900p to checkerboard "4K". Miss me with that "expensive" BS, you just thought it'd make you less of a "true gamer" if you owned one (referring to the general "you" here).
The snubbing of the Wii U was arguably the biggest tragedy of the decade, tied with this dishonest post-mortem reverence ("dishonest" being the key word) of Satoru Iwata, despite when he was still alive - up to and especially his final month - you couldn't get #FireIwata off the trending list. The man absolutely deserves reverence, but the way that so many people have disparaged Nintendo's "gray logo" Iwata era while at the same time only talking him up now that he's dead because now it gains them "gamer cred" to do so, it's just... ugh. If they truly cared, they'd have cared at the time, not after the fact.
Vile goddamn sheep. For all the great games released the past ten years, gamer and industry attitudes this decade has embittered me on gaming in a way I'd have thought impossible. This promising medium is in wholly unworthy hands.
