    yes, of course, 3ds is one of the greatest handheld video game consoles ever made. I play it a lot, and also like to test homebrew programs. why else would I have 3 of them?
    and if anybody says otherwise, fight me, because you're WRONG.

    bought and sold in 2012. last time I ever be an early adopter for video games.

    bought back in Oct 2017 to check out what I've missed. super happy I did.

    although I will say that the PSP is superior in some cases- the 3DS is littered with JRPGs and misses on some critical action genres- where are the robots? where's the action games, While smash and the n64 remasters alone make it worth it, and some hidden gems like ever oasis and monster hunter are killer, compared the the PSP/DS the 3DS is missing that genre. DS had everything and great multi but wasn't quite powerful- the PSP had the awesome games but wasn't muti.

    the system seller? pokemon? IMHO, 3DS mons were the worst generation being very boring and becoming generic JRPGs. however DS was the best and backwards compatibility is a saving grace most underestimate. Why buy a switch if the titles are so limited to new games and nothing VC when the power is there?

    Just started up a playthrough of Xenoblade Chronicles 3D maybe a little more than a week ago. I generally don't "abandon" my game consoles; while specific consoles may go through a bit of a "dry spell" where I don't play them much/at all for weeks or even months, I do always come back to them. The only time I'll stop playing a console completely is when it breaks.

    I haven't used a 3ds in over a year.... Mostly because I sold it for rent money when I was unemployed.... Now I have a new one waiting at the post office for me to pickup today. Should be nice to finally play my Mario games again.

    Bought one last week

    Best portable console ever. Endless list of games thanks to "emulation" and backwards compatible with NDS games.

    Absolutely.

    There's still a few new games coming out but most of the games that come out nowadays aren't for me anyway.

    It reminds me of time when gaming meant more than 60 fps and "photoreleastic graphics" that age out in two years .

    I recently replayed Omega Ruby. It was like playing it new all over again since I've forgotten some of the changes and gym remodels.

    I dusted it off like two days ago after months of lying there to play bloodstained curse of the moon, but now is there resting again. My ps4 and vita have me pretty busy even though I have a couple of games left to play on my new 3ds (metroid 2 remake, kirby robobot and lady layton).

    Where I want to be
    I think I forgot I have one. I've mostly moved to my vita, and the only reason I would start my 3ds again is if I was play pokemon or smash, but I've even stopped that. I don't have a switch yet, but I'm satisfied with my current consoles.
