Am I one of the few people here who prefers switch? What? I've played the 3D games extensively and not once have I ever gone all the way through a game with hold the whole way through. It's harder and incredibly annoying for some reason, and it tires out your finger after a while on the GameCube. The ONLY disadvantage that switch has compared to hold is when you want to stop Z-Targeting when there are multiple enemies, sometimes it takes ages before the game realises that you don't want to Z-Target anymore. There should've been a Z-Target cancel button or something, that would have made it a lot easier. Other than that I've never had a need to use hold at all.
And it's also incredibly annoying as my brother uses hold, and when I start up one of the 64 games and try to Z-Target, I have to reset the game and change it in the options menu. Annoys the hell out of me each time.
