So, I recently bought a regular 3DS because I wanted to give it a second chance (despite my eyes being unable to see 3D effects), along with Ocarina of Time and Tales of the Abyss. I didn't get the 3DS XL because it would cost extra money I didn't want to spend. - What other games do you recommend? - What can be done to prevent the infamous screen-scratching-when-you-close-the-3DS issue? - Should I get battery life-extenders from a third party (such as Nyko), or keep the brightness down and 3D effects off? - What eShop games (if any) do you recommend? Just need some feedback so I can get a good idea on how to get the most out of my 3DS. That, and the eventual exploit that will enable homebrew emulators.
