I'm still on the fence about buying a 3DS...

#1Shadowstar108Posted 2/27/2013 7:25:52 AM
I've got a little money to spend, and I've wanted a 3DS for years (especially since my hopes for the Vita have died along with Sony's competence). However, I'm not all that interested in gaming anymore, and I'm afraid I'll just end up wasting my money...

If you want, I can give a list of games I've played for my DS that could help with recommendations and convincing arguments:

Mario Party DS
New Super Mario Bros.
Mario Kart DS
All the Pokemon games
All the DS Kirby games
The World Ends With You
Devil Survivor 2 (Haven't finished, and haven't played in over a month...)
Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin
Dragon Quest IX
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and Re:coded
Final Fantasy III
Phantasy Star 0

This may seem off topic (because it is lol) but how old are you?

right there. that's your answer. save that $150+ for something better; food, clothes, other hobbies.

Dr. Light: That's right. It's a variable. It represents unlimited potential.

Agreed. I hate the fact that I recently got back into gaming T_T

If there aren't any current 3DS games that it's worth a couple of hundred bucks to you to play NOW, then you can put off buying a 3DS. I mean, it's not like the 3DS is going to vanish in the next few years and it's an emergency to buy one immediately. I bought mine for Ace Combat and Monster Hunter.

I'm waiting for Bandai to release the WonderSwan/SwanCrystal II and blow both the Vita and the 3DS away.

I'm not doing anything else with the money, since I still live with my folks while I attend college. All of my school expenses are paid, and I have no bills. And I told myself I wouldn't pour a ton of money into Magic: The Gathering anymore, since my parents got really pissed at me last Saturday...

I know its not directed at me, but I got back into, I lost a bit of interest as well around 19/20. Girls, friends and the likes heck I didn't get a 360 until early 2009. I have a wife and kid now and I love gaming, do it every night after my wife and kid crash. Honestly can't tell you what drew me back in, but now I cant imagine going 3 or 4 days without playing some form of game.

Do you like Pokemon? That's whats drawing me towards a 3ds/3dsXL at the moment. I only have the 2nd gen DS and I hate having to change my router settings every time i want to trade or battle on Soulsilver, that and the newer Pokemon games peak my interest.
