    Didn't some old game show host always say "Call me crazy!" ?

    Maybe I'm crazy: does anyone else still like the DSi XL screen better for old DS games?

    The blockiness isn't all that bad and even gives games a bit of a retro feel.

    I tried playing on a friend's 2DS and I was really not that impressed because the nice, smooth image was just too small.

    Even on a 3DS XL, I'm not super impressed with DS games. (The auto-stereo-whatchamacallit 3D games however look really neat, LOL.) Can't they find a way to stretch the old games fullscreen? Bigger was better, I think.

    The DSi XL played DS games GORGEOUSLY

    i remember crying when my then 12 year old self sold my DSi XL

    (I was poor so I had to, point is no other system makes DS games look that good)
