These are all positive ones so no meltdowns if that's what you're after. I've never seen any of these people but they were the reaction videos I enjoyed the most from the ones I watched.

Overall every single reaction I've seen has been incredibly positive. In fact I've not seen a single outright negative reaction from any big name or professional source. However another recurring theme is people wanting to know more. Ex. Is the battery life really 3 hours? Does the touchscreen work? What games are coming? Which we apparently won't get any official info on until January at the earliest.

Hype is a powerful thing and the primary reaction online has been from Nintendo fans who have been so deprived of info that almost any official announcement made by Nintendo would have garnered a positive reaction imo. I think people who look at it objectively are having a different reaction and are more skeptical, but the excitement from fans is so high right now that they are overlooking some pretty glaring flaws.

Wow there is a lot of excitement in that first video. This part at the end should become some kind of meme for when Nintendo does good or bad.

These are the exact types of reactions I can't watch. So cringey and overreacted.

There it is,

I don't know why some people have a desire to try and determine the "actual" level of excitement someone had in a reaction video and then try and compare that to how they "acted" to determine how much they overreacted. Seems like a really arbitrary thing. If people act excited, I usually assume they are.

Thanks for this thread, OP, will dive in for EZA and Fucking Sterling Son, at least.

Wow, what kind of person would have such a reaction?

It's so forced and unnatural, how can people not cringe when watching these?

what was his opinion?
i cant watch youtube here.

Thinks it looks good and is a good move for Nintendo, though is a bit skeptical about issues like account structure and actual 3rd party support. Overall positive, but he primarily thinks it will be a device supported mostly by Nintendo themselves; positive about them being able to do that more easily now.

Ok, I'm not a fan of LET US SCREAM TO ENTERTAIN 12 YEAR OLDS ON YOUTUBE type of channels but the dude hugging his giant plush Pikachu is adorable.

Easy Allies messed up their reaction video. Production values have fallen so far since Gametrailers. I thought of listening to their latest podcast that was uploaded a few days after the event for a better analysis and it was recorded before the announcement.

The few minutes of direct reactions were lost due to Twitch muting the music, but we had more than 40 minutes of analysis afterwards that's perfectly watchable.

Kind of ridiculous that EZA doesn't keep a local copy of their stuff. Was looking forward to their reaction the most.

Here's a cool video by the folks over at RPG Site discussing potential role-playing games we could see on the Switch. As noted in the video, this topic is pretty relevant considering the Wii U had an abysmal selection of RPGs (meanwhile, the 3DS absolutely thrived in them).

I liked these ones.
Too bad about the muted live part.
This thread made me realize that there is no Angry Joe Nintendo Switch reaction.

SAD!
This is the best one, by far.
I like the good cop, bad cop routine.
Max made some good commentary.
Etika over the top, but his buds kept him back a bit.
This guy is legit.
GhostRobo (dunno who this dude is but I love his enthusiasm): https://youtu.be/ScN_uNeZ6BU

"Oh what a relief, it's not something retarded!". Box quote right there.
Yeah, it's nice.
I don't know how you guys can stomach the loud and over the top ones.

I like this guy's reaction (Sirlionhart)

I turned off at "pretty girls don't play", though.

Can we post our own reactions here or is that against the self-advertising policy?
Do not create new threads promoting a product or service you have any involvement in, or paste PR materials for promotional purposes, or attempt to embed referral links in your posts to generate revenue. If an existing discussion is taking place directly involving something you are associated with, you may participate in order to answer questions, clarify details, and otherwise engage with the community, but as a person, not an advertisement.
You're good to go.

Best one was Kinda Funny. Can't believe Tim actually likes it!
I'm surprised Colin was really warm to it (although I knew he'd hate the name). To me, he represents the "forgotten Nintendo fan" that the company left behind during the Wii era, so to see someone like him impressed and excited for the Switch is a good sign that Nintendo is on the right track.
