    Guys what game can you suggest which best shows and make use the 3D effect efficiently? Example less lags or slowing down with 3D slider in maximum. Planning to show it to a friend to encourage him to buy and also play a 3DS.

    If he plans on getting the N3DS, get him to play Pokemon games (x/y and/or ruby/sapphire), and also Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance .

    for game, i think DOA is most 3D friendly game. but to show 3D works, it is better to show him a 3D video. you can find some in youtube

    Now that I played with my New 3DS XL for few days all I can say is that regular 3DS stereo-3D is rubbish. Now I can actually play games when using stereo-3D just like I do with my PC and Plasma from time to time.
    I would also like to note that having slider on low or full doesn't make any other change than adjust depth of image to users comfort level - some won't see anything unless slider is on top and some get eye strain from same level.

    I know what not to get: Virtue's Last Reward.
    Outside save corrupting bugs, stereoscopic 3D is simply unuseable. Only thing working is actual character models, outside of that many enviroments, images and cutscenes are simply moved as whole to left and right, meaning part of image is hidden while black bar is put on the other side, which again means 2D image is simply moved little bit to the back but also gives huge eye strain when there's data missing.
    Tried Vita version afterwards and that's definitely the version to get for that game.

    Usually games using 3D graphics and are done exlusively for 3DS have pretty good stereoscopic mode. However best one I have experienced is actually with Mighty Switch Force, because everything is on clear layer so it looks good and slightly helps to focus on layer where everything is happening. 3D Land also has pretty good 3D but 3D broke too often for me on old XL so I played it in 2D.

    DOA problem is that frame rate is halved with 3D on, which on fighting game is kinda bad tradeoff. Most demanding games usually have these tradeoffs as stereo-3D does require some horsepower, most games usually add antialiasing on 2D mode.

    I actually enjoyed the 3D in Majora's Mask.

    Played those Pokemon games ang the 3D effect makes the frame rate drop badly, not played KHDD yet so yeah I will try later. My friend is considering buying a vita so I am trying to change his mind by showing off the 3DS capabilities.


    3D video from youtube, is this via the app or I can download and put in the microSD card? I will use my new 3ds xl because of the stable 3D, but I did not yet go online with it so no app downloaded yet also, avoiding the firmware update :)

    Vita maybe > 3DS for some but...

    N3DS > Vita. It's has a quad-core CPU I believe, so it's less laggy.

    Titles with optimized 3D? Mario Land 3D of course!

    MH4U looks astonishing in 3D.
    The N3DS is leagues behind the Vita specs-wise, but I don't see how that's relevant in this thread.

    Project X Zone's special attacks make the best use of 3D I've seen on the 3DS. So many crazy attacks and the camera spinning around the characters... pretty cool.

    But really 3D gets old super fast. I turn 3D on just for looking at these best parts of the games I play.

    I've play EVERYTHING in 3D, and I've played a LOT of 3DS games:

    Kid Icarus Uprising is the best, IMO. I'm still amazed every time I first boot it up.

    He meant the quad-core processor fixes the issues of the originals, upping the appeal.

    But it lags sometimes in 3D and in 2D is a bit smoother anyway.

    The best I've seen performance wise is definitely Mario Kart 7. Doesn't lose any of its 60 fps glory when switching to 3D, quite impressive.
    And I agree with Kid Icarus Uprising, especially the flying sections. It really works IF you manage to keep your eyes on the sweetspot or have a N3DS.
    As for gameplay purposes, Super Mario 3D Land also did well in integrating it meaningfully for the most part.

    A Link Between Worlds had some neat 3D effects that made it easy to distinguish what was above/below you. Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask do a good job on 3D. Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance has a really good 3D effect as well.

    Starfox 3D in multiplayer mode it's awesome, the best in my opinion.

    RE: Revelations. Best graphics on 3DS and you can also set the 3D even deeper.

    Nice graphics, but the 3d has too much ghosting IMO.

    It doesn't though, it's very much like DS MODE on the DSi sort of deal. Old games perform about as well as they used to on the old system, I did notice that loading is faster though.
