Which model should I get? I avoided getting a 3DS for a while due to lack of games but I got some excess money to spend after my latest check and want to check out some good titles and RPGs if possible. Is getting a 3DS a worthwhile investment? I've been playing mobile games on my iPhone 5 and iPad 4 more than I'd like lately and no games are really deep only freemium type casual cash shop games.

The XL, and Fire Emblem. You can buy it off the eshop if you want to try the demo before you drop $40.

Depends if you leave the wifi on, the 3d on all the time etc...

I seem to get about 5ish hours. I play with the 3D on most of the time, and the wifi on once in a while for updates, Swapnote. I usually leave the system in standby (with the lid closed and wifi on during the day for StreetPass, etc).

Would you say it's pretty worthwhile to get one? I haven't had a portable system in a loooong looong time due to primarily iPhone/iPad gaming on the go.

I got my 3DS Wednesday.

I really liked the game library, there's a good number of games I'd like to get my hands on, and the Pokemon X/Y announcement gives that feeling that bigger companies are willing to make more games for it.

So I'd say it'd be worthwhile.

Yeah, I'm newly 25 years old myself and the new Pokemon game definitely intrigues me to go back to my Red/Silver roots and play. (hopefully there isn't hacking if it has online) Also I remember the DS having really good obscure RPGs is it same with the 3DS?

I was the same way, I hadn't had a handheld for 5ish years.

I think it's awesome. I got an XL for Christmas, and since, I've picked up all the Layton games, Paper Mario Sticker Star, Resident Evil: Revelations (awesome btw), Fire Emblem Awakening (best in class SRPG) and a few others.

Lots of good titles.

Can't really speak to other RPG's on the system, but there's EOIV that just came out. I think there's a SMT out or coming out. New Castlevania in a couple of days. Luigi's Mansion 2, Animal Crossing this summer, Pokemon X/Y this fall..

Lots of good titles for the 3DS these days.

Also, if you are a fan of Luigi's Mansion, there is this promotion. I missed it because I registered back in January. And if you aren't a Luigi's Mansion guy, feel free to shoot me the 3ds xl club nintendo code you get. Haha...

Yeah, I'd say so. I'm a big RPG fan, so that was my primary reason to get the original DS.
Obscure RPGs, though, hmm... not too sure seeing as I got my 3DS wednesday.
