Why do so many people not use the 3D on the 3DS?

I don't use it because I have to think about it. It is not natural and it's like I have to concentrate or refocus too much on the screen rather than just enjoy the game.

It drains the battery. I only use it when I'm charging.

I use the 3D effects all the time because it adds to the experience for me. Also, i don't mind the shorter battery life, mainly because I don't have that much time to play my 3DS any more. What I find strange is how many people have issues with holding the 3DS in the same spot. I have no special ability to hold still, and I tend to actually move around alot if I try and sit still for any amount of time but I've never had an issue with seeing the 3D effects

I can see the effect just fine, and it doesn't hurt my eyes, but here's why I personally don't make use of it:

1: It drains your battery.

2: The effect would be more impressive if it added "pop-up" rather than just depth

3: It's the kinda thing you show your friends once so they go "woooah" and buy one.

4: It makes the images jaggier

5: It decreases the framerate on certain games (If you turn off the 3D from the menu in monster hunter 3, you get a noticeable framerate boost.)

6: It's not really required for any games aside from some aesthetics.

7: The DS adding touch screen added new ways to manipulate menus and solve puzzles etc. The 3D in 3DS doesn't add any new innovative ways to play games.

8: Its just not as pleasing on a small screen compared to playing on a desktop computer.


I'm not saying the 3D is bad, or anything like that, but those are some of the reasons I personally don't use it.

Its hurts my eyes everytime I turn it on, and plus its a 100% useless gimmick.

It literally makes my eyes start to hurt if I have it on too long. I do turn it on for cutscenes though.

Cause it takes a lot of fine tuning to get just the right setting, then someone bumps you and it's all for nothing.

I'm almost legally blind in one eye so the whole 3d thing doesn't work that well for me. Otherwise I don't really see how it can add that much into the game that I can't get without turning it on. I also think that it drains the battery faster, but I'm 100% sure on that.
