Due to the lack of console exclusives now I had to add some categories. This new one is all about which system just had the best year. This can include really well-done hardware upgrades, great console exclusives, the least amount of terrible launches, the least amount of bad controversy, new software upgrades that are a major deal.
The Switch had a rock solid year despite chip shortages. The Switch Lite and even the bigger version were avaiable all year in stores — the only console you could pick up all year. The Switch OLED launched in October with a higher price point, but a more premium feel and a fantastic OLED screen. There were also rock solid exclusives releasing nearly every month and many of them reviewed well and were worth owning. We didn’t get many awful launches, and bluetooth audio was added as a feature this year as well which was a huge deal. There was some great official accessories released like the Skyward Sword HD Joy-Cons. Overall, this was just a positive time to be a Switch owner.
