2021 GNR Ticket VS. Nintendo Switch OLED?


Recommended Posts

GN'R are playing in my area (Dallas) on September 1st. I was considering going. However, after the announcement of the Nintendo Switch OLED I am considering buying the Switch OLED and skipping the GNR gig. 

I have seen 4 NITL shows and the last one I attended (Austin 2019-10-11) was lame and extremely boring to sit through. 

Considering that the Nintendo Switch OLED will cost $380 (incl. tax) and a single decent GNR ticket costs around $300, I feel the Switch OLED would be a better investment than a GNR ticket. 
Would anyone disagree? :D Peace!

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I pre-ordered the Switch OLED. That's $378 TB and Live Nation won't be getting. :P

This will be my first Nintendo console since the N64 in 1996. I'm a Playstation guy!

Does anyone have suggestions on essential Switch accessories to pick up?

I will definitely order a Pro controller, large MicroSD card, case, and screen protector.

What else should I get? 

Thanks!!

There's a lot of great games for you to buy but I'll narrow it down a bit...

Get Splatoon 2(I don't think Splatoon 3 is out til next year?) It's the most elegantly designed videogame since Tetris imo. A lot of fun.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Super Mario Odyssey

Zelda Breath of the Wild

Zelda Link's Awakening

Super Mario 3D World+Bowser's Fury

Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle

The Witcher 3

BioShock Collection

Hollow Knight

Super Mario Maker 2

Mario Golf Super Rush

Mario Tennis Aces

Arms

New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe

Cuphead

Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition

Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Final Fantasy 8

Final Fantasy 9

Crash Team Racing

Crash Bandicoot Collection

Spyro Collection

Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1+2

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze

Kirby Star Allies

Mortal Kombat 11

Luigi's Mansion 3

Mega Man Zero/ZX Collection

Owlboy

Super Mario Party

Streets of Rage 4

Sonic Mania+Team Sonic Racing Double Pack

Sega Genesis Classics

 

With certain games like Splatoon use gyro aiming which is brilliant only rivaled by M&K.

Thanks for list Oldest Goat. I am definitely interested in the 1st party Nintendo games. I have several third party games you suggest on my PS5 and they are great. Especially the Sega titles (I'm an early 90s Genesis owner). Streets of Rage 4 is awesome! The Mr. X Nightmare DLC is a lot of fun. BTW, is there a Punch-Out!! Game for the Switch?

Don't think so. They really need legacy support.

The right decision was always the Switch. Enjoy!

Thanks, October 8th cannot get here soon enough!
After seeing the setlist for the "new" GNR tour, the Switch will be a MUCH better investment.
I am always up for learning about recommended Switch titles, specifically games that are exclusive to the Nintendo console.
I am looking forward to Metroid Dread!

I wanted to mention that I received the Switch OLED one month ago and am really enjoying it. As a die-hard Playstation guy, I now understand why the Switch has been so popular for nearly 5 years. My current favorite game is Super Mario Odyssey. Ultra Street Fighter 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe are a lot of fun too! I was able to get the Switch OLED for $283 using some discounts. Ironically, the cost of a single, no frills, lower level GNR ticket is around $280-$300. IMHO, the Switch OLED is the far superior value. I am pleased with what I received for the same price as 1 GNR ticket! :D
