And while plenty were pumped about a system that could play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in their hands as well as it could play it on a TV, there were just as many who took the console's unique design as… let's call it "artistic inspiration." Thus, Switch Dog was born.

Meet the contenders below, then take a vote at the bottom of this article.
