As a fan, it really bothers me how poor the graphics on 3DS are.

We're seeing all these great games coming out for the system, which is awesome. It has reached its prime. But the graphics are just so lousy. I mean Luigi's Mansion looks all jaggy and gross... much worse than the original did on Gamecube. Handhelds should be able to meet the graphics from 2 generations ago, but 3DS cannot. The jaggies in the screenshots of Pokemon X/Y make me want to cry. Why are they so far behind?

Because videos from the internet blow up the 3DS screen images so it's a little zoomed and make it look Jagged.

Just look at that.

Look at it.

N64 had less jaggies.

Yea, some of the games are definitely rough looking. I watched the trailer for Luigi's Mansion on the 3DS and I was kinda let down by how rough and jagged it looked. I found the same thing with Kid Icarus but oh well... I would rather have great games than great graphics

Actually play the games instead of watching a video of them. Videos give a false view of graphics because they are blown up. Take Castlevania for example - looks terrible in videos but the actual game look amazing.

Yeah, and that's why it's still better than Vita. Vita is so powerful and amazing but it has no games. I just wish we could have both on the same system. >_>

Fans have shown they don't care about hardware advances, or a real online infrastructure, or anything like that. New IPs? Not important either. So Nintendo gives the fans what they want.
