Which console zo buy a 12-year-old kid?

Which console zo buy a 12-year-old kid?
Hi, everybody
I am thinking about buying my kid a really good console. Until now it was so that I and my wife had a firm attitude not to buy our child a console until his 12-year-old. Now that the time has come, we have decided to keep our promise. Since we as parents are not well versed with such things, I decided to ask the question here and get some suggestions from people who know more about these things.
What do you think which console is good for a 12-year-old kid?
I try and state simple facts in a nice way.

I vote Switch. But then I am really not into guns/blowing up type of games.

Switch has so many fun and entertaining games. Mario Kart, Legend of Zelda, Luigi's Mansion, etc.

Have you asked him what he wants?

I agree with this. Buy an older console, with a wider variety of cheaper games. Video games is an expensive hobby, especially with consoles.

Also might want to ask what kinds of game he wants to play, and pick something with a good selection of that type of game.

Good video to watch, if you want to know how common the Jesus story really is.

Interesting point. Years ago, I set up for the whole nine yards of Wolf 3d with my kids. Network game, co-op play and all that.

They eventually wandered off into other games.

Now that they are older what do they want me to crank up? Wolf 3d.

Nostalgia? The mad joy of a fully co-op game? I don't know for sure.

I do know that the fancy graphics have lost their appeal and the whole notion that one must think about what one is doing have somehow become more important. Dunno why that might be.
