I wish Nintendo would go back to cartridge based systems

There was nothing like sliding a freshly minted cartridge into the NES or popping one into the SNES or N64. Just pop them in and play instantaneously. None of this dashboard navigation BS or these sissy social connections standing in your way. Just me and my game controller ready in hand.

3DS doesn't technically use cartridges.

Why? Cartridges are so limiting. Why would you want to go back to such an archaic format?

Ftw!

I agree I love cartridges.

Indestructible, fast loading times......real games!

Don't see it ever happening though:(

Like someone else said. It lives on through portable. 3DS or Vita.

discs break so so easily, its like they are designed that way, no loading time, but discs hold so much more, so yeah, we just move on..

I hate how cheap optical discs are. That is good enough reason for me. Non-optical mediums have greatly improved since the days of the cartridge. In fact, video games are the only optical discs I've purchased since DVDs came out. (with the exception of locally or independent music albums).
