Why did you buy your 3DS?

#1Shadowstar108Posted 3/5/2013 8:25:08 AM
I bought my 3DS for KH:3D and FE:A (which I'm loving the crap out of right now), and I'm really pumped for Soul Hackers and SMTIV later this year.

I'm just curious for the board's motivations for buying this system, so post away!

Because I wanted the Zelda edition and to play Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.

For the amazing library it was bound to get.

I held off buying for a while, but FE:A was the breaking point for me. There were a number of games I wanted to play (Zelda: OoT, Mario 3D Land, etc.), but none of them were must-haves. The desire to play another handheld Fire Emblem as well as the extremely positive reviews made Awakening a must-have for me.

My DS Lite's L button (or was it R? Can't remember) stopped working properly, so instead of getting a replacement DS Lite, I traded my old one in for a 3DS. Somewhat regret that decision, but at least the 3DS has full backwards compatibility without hacking the system, unlike the Vita :p

EDIT: The reason I somewhat regret getting a 3DS is the lower battery life and the "launch window" games being delayed like hell and upon release being underwhelming. OoT3D really should have had at least ONE new dungeon (Temple of Light? Full length Ice Cavern? Sme kind of ultra hard dungeon with the full Triforce as a reward to fulfill the dreams of the N64 rumourmongers?), and Star Fox 64 3D really needed a whole bunch of new stages (Sauria? The real Fortuna as opposed to Fichina with the wrong name? Out of This Dimension 3D?).

Because it has couple of game I wanted but TBH the mainreason was backwards compatibility. Shame DS games look awful on it though! I'm not a graphics whore but it's quite distracting.

I wanted to play all the DS RPGs I missed out on and be able to play new 3DS games that come out with just one handheld.

Kid Icarus Uprising. That's it. Nothing more Complicated than that. Turns out the game is like the perfectly made game for me.

Then later I was blown away when Fire Emblem Awakening graced the system. That game sold me on the system twice over, and I didn't even know it existed until AFTER I bought my 3DS last Nov.
