So long Iphone Gaming...

#1EvonfirePosted 12/11/2012 9:54:48 AM
I use to think handheld gaming was limited to my Iphone. I thought after the Gameboy Advance there was no longer a point to handheld gaming because console gaming systems (ps3, xbox 360) had advanced so much graphically. Once I got tired of the same mini-movie type console games, I found myself playing Angry Birds and other Iphone games. Then something happened, I heard about the 3ds XL and realized that after 10 years apart from nintendo, it was time to come home. Now, I can't even game on my Iphone if I want to. Even Angry Birds Star Wars is barely playable compared to the fun I'm having in MK7, and Zelda:oot. Thats all, thanks for letting me share. Go Nintendo!

Should've continued during the DS era. It also has a very good library of games.

To me handheld is no different than consoles, I'm not gonna restrict myself to one company. That's why Im trying to find a PSP, the more variety of systems the more variety of games, I still don't see games I enjoy on the IOS device that appear on these systems like basically anything from Kairosoft, Gamevil, Ravenous Games. That goes with consoles too.

Yes I'm totally gonna do this!

The first DS games I want are: Hotel Dusk, 999, TWENY, Prof. Layton. Pokemon B/W 1 & 2, Zelda games? Castlevania games? Ohh and Ghost Trick.

It's kind of nice having so many DS games available and it was definitly a selling point for me when I bought my 3DS. I think it's great how Nintendo values backwards compatibility in their handhelds. I like Sony also but for handheld gaming I just had to go with Nintendo, and boy am I glad I did. Playing Zelda: oot, and Mario 3D land, and Mario Kart 7 brings back so many childhood memories! I'm 27 and realize that just because I'm not that into the Wii or Wii U doesn't mean I can't be into Nintendo entirely.

I got the red 3ds xl because it reminded me of my old Virtual Boy, boy I wish i had that thing again, i sold it at a yard sale years ago.

I think this is a very wise approach Dark that way you don't become bias/fanboy and miss out on unique gaming experiences. It's too easy, espeiclaly on GameFAQS to get sucked into that team mentality , ex: I own a 3ds therefore I hate the ps vita and want it to fail.

All great games and some of the best the DS has to offer, though it still has hundreds mores great games and thousands of other games. All 3 of the Castlevania games are great.

The 2 Zelda games however, well lets just say they never even made it close to being the best Zelda games made. A fair warning: just because they are called Zelda and made by Nintendo, doesn't mean they are great games.
