To those who own a 3DS, what was YOUR reason to buy one?

It was a mixture of things that coincided with an impulse buy... One that I do not regret; as this is probably my favorite handheld so far.

- I skipped out on the last generation of handhelds.
- DS backwards compatibility.
- Being able to acquire Dragon Quest 4, 5, 6, and 9 at reasonable prices.
- Upcoming 3DS games at time of purchase (January of last year).
- This year's releases (FE:A, EO4, C:MoF, LM2, DS:SH) cement why it was a good purchase to me.
- The prospect of the eShop containing GBA games I missed out on, but with NoA being so slow that's a pipe dream.

I do a fair amount of handheld gaming to the point where I feel I need one handheld at any given time, and Nintendo handhelds interest me more than Sony due to first party games like Pokemon, Mario, Kirby, ect. Especially Pokemon, which is the main thing I use my handhelds for.

I am a dedicated Nintendo Fan.
It is seriously awesome, though. With great games like Fire EMblem, Kid Icarus Uprising, and Pokemon X and Y- I mean, the Vita killer.
Music ages different than humans; songs may get old, but they never die.

3D boobs. Don't judge me.

Mostly for the inevitable Pokemon 3DS & Animal Crossing releases.

When it was first released & I was able to play around with a demo version of the 3DS I immediately loved the 3D effect, course then I didn't have the cash to get one, but my wife & I saved up & we each got one around the Christmas holidays, She got the Teal one & I got the Midnight Purple.
