Why do most people seem to play with the 3D off?

I wouldn't know. I have little to no depth perception and the effect doesn't work for me at all.

Sometimes I don't like the effects, sometimes I just want a longer battery life.

I don't use the 3D, because it cuts the battery life in half, and the battery life is bad as it is. The 3D is okay, but ultimately it's the one thing that I didn't care about when I purchased my 3DS.

I can't see 3D and yet it gives me headaches... Go figure...
#45sortajanPosted 2/13/2013 9:30:19 PM
because 3D is one of the worst things to happen to games and movies in the past ten years

I turn it off because it drains the battery quicker and if I move the 3DS at all the picture gets all wonky so I have to hold it at just the right angle the entire time.

its a gimmick, hurts my eyes, gives me a headache, have to hold it in the perfect position to see, drains the batteries. need anymore reasons?

I'm one of the 10% or so people who can't actually see 3D because of something to do with genetics that affects the sensory nerve in your brain. Turning it on makes the picture look like it's flickering in a bizarre way with double images.

I like it, although for most games it doesn't really add to gameplay, but it's a nice visual effect when used in a subtle way (like FE:A), the only problem I have is it requires a pretty steady position in order not to get doubles or weird shifts.

Mainly, if I'm playing at home I use it and if I'm elsewhere it's easier not to.
