That’s probably also our stance. We only play a limited number of Nintendo games (but love those). One kid is into ACNH, and I’ll probably get them the DLC as a present at some point. For myself, as long as Splatoon works, I’m happy.
That said, I’m glad that fans of N64 and Genesis games now have a modern option to play them.
I would guess [Apple are] still in wait-and-see mode, and they could be there for a few years or a decade.
Apple is definitely well beyond "wait and see" when it comes to AR. I think they’ve already ditched the idea of doing
VRthemselves though. Possibly they might revisit that, but my guess is that they identified enough AR use cases that will add to their bottom line, and that they figured out that VR’s use cases don’t constitute a market that’s worth their while.

When I said non-M1, I meant M2 or M1X or whatever the new Apple Silicon will be called. Not an Intel model. I suspect that by next week the Intel line will be limited to the Mac Pro (and even that one not for long).

I think so. The iMac Pro was presented somewhat as a stop-gap design from the get go ("this will keep pros going while we rework the Mac Pro design"). The current max-specced i9 iMac iMac is pretty close to the iMac Pro in performance.
It’s possible, though, that they just re-brand the whole non-M1 iMac line as "iMac Pro". Personally, I think that would be clearer.
The M1 shares its cores design with the A14. I used to think that Apple would produce a "scaled up" version of that for its mid-range Macs (higher-end MacBooks, iMac, and Mac mini), and in that view "M1X" makes sense.
However, we’ve gotten the A15 since then, and it would be surprising to me if the new Macs’ CPU/GPU isn’t based on that. That in turn suggests "M2" rather than "M1X". Going forward, I’d then expect the Mac tiering to be a bit like iPhone’s: The "lower end" is simply a previous generation’s "higher end".
