After 2-ish years~ How would you rate the 3DS?

Good games, bad execution of 3D, but overall good.
Every wound a new opportunity, every curse a new challenge.

6/10, but when Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is released, it'll be 11/10.

Pretty much this.

Compared to other dedicated gaming handhelds: 4/10
There is a serious lack of games that I love. 3DS would have been a perfect platform for a portable Wave Race or F-Zero of console quality. Kid Icarus was promising but I just hate the controls. I don't only blame Nintendo though, I'm a big Mega Man fan and I love both the sidescrollers and mmbn/sf series but because Capcom is stupid I guess that's not gonna happen too. It's only been two years but not even one game I would truly love to bits has been announced or even teased so yeah I'm a bit disappointed.

Animal Crossing is great stuff but it's not something I bought my 3DS for and the same could be said for every other 3DS game. Nice but not really sensational.

Then there is the e-Shop and the VC games. It's great to see games liek Mega Man (NES) available for download.......for 4,99. Seriously, I own the game on NES and it's great but 4,99 for a rom of a NES game on the 3DS? As big a Mega Man fan as I am that's just a ridiculous price and the same goes for just about every other game on the 3DS VC. I refuse to buy anything that's so overpriced, especially because I have tons of other ways to play those games already.

I'm not expecting miracles but 3DS so far has not even made a small step towards the quality of GBA, DS or even PSP level handheld gaming. It's still better than my Vita though (but not by much!), if only Sony would actually care about the Vita maybe it will get some more games.

It's a tough decision. I've enjoyed the games I've gotten and had a lot of fun with it. I can't very well give a failing grade to a system I beat Zelda 2: Link's Adventure, Etrian Odyssey 2, Cave Story and Super Mario Bros on.

I can't wait for Etrian Odyssey 4, DQ: Terry's Wonderland, Monster Hunter 3, the next Zelda and Smash Bros game. But... I've been playing my PSP more often than my 3DS. Then again It's all because of Monster Hunter.

8.5/10 would be my grade for the device.

1/10, as usual with Nintendo a console with no games.
Well at Gamestop you can get a rubber ducky, a water gun, or a pirate sleeve Wii bundle.

4/10. There were initially some good games with Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7, but I was disappointed with KI:U and nothing I want has come out since. I don't really like the original hardware model either. Having tried out a 3DSXL in a shop I'd definitely upgrade to that if there were many games I wanted to play.

8.5 or 9/10. Very solid system with a lot of games. Tons of awesome games on the horizon and even many games currently out I haven't had a chance to try yet.
