Don't think I can see the 3D effect. Should I still bother getting this?

Seeing that one of the main selling points is the 3D, I am not too convinced.

You're not missing out on much.

And do you really need to ask? The only good game is a port of a 14-year-old N64 game.

The 3D is a small tiny bonus, no one should ever not get the system simply because they can't see 3D. It doesn't change the quality of the games that will be available.

If you don't have a DS, then get this.

BTW, why can't you see the effect?

You should get it if you like the upcoming selection of games

You don't actually need the 3D, that's why there's a slider and the ability to turn it off entirely. Look at the games available, and consider whether they're worth purchasing the system for.

No depth perception? My dad can't see the 3D either.

My dad is blind in one eye, so he can't see the 3D. My cousin wears glasses and can't see 3D either, though not everyone with glasses can't see 3D.
This statement is FALSE!

Well I already have a DSi and the reason why I can't see it is cause of my lazy eye(s). >>

Sure the 3D is a neat visual effect that I really enjoy, but its no means essential to playing the 3DS. The games are still exactly the same whether you view them in 2D or 3D.
