Earlier this year I bought a 3DS. I ended up trading it with someone who just wanted a red console, I traded it because there one had all of the ambassador titles on it as well as some digital content. A few months later I sold my 3DS and I haven't missed it at all. I'll be honest, I can't say I enjoyed the 3DS as much as other Nintendo consoles before it, actually apart from the Virtual Boy I'd say that at the moment it is their worst platform. Aside from Pushmo, there aren't any games I miss at all. GB/GBC/GBA/DS, played the hell out of those from launch down to the dying years. Wii, loved it. Those who say it doesn't have games haven't looked hard enough...3DS though, lacks a certain something. I've played the main "best titles". 3D Mario Land was very uninspiring, I understand it was meant to bridge the gap between the NSMB series and Mario 64 but for me it was the most boring Mario and safe title I played. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad game but I never felt much excitement for it when I played it. However the 3D is done extremely well and for me it does prove that there is a place for 3D gaming however it does make the game so so much easier. Mario Kart 7, again meh. I've grown tired of this series, the Wii game didn't do much for me. I actually enjoyed Double Dash and the only problem that game had was the track length, I loved Super Circuit and MK DS was a great introduction into online MK play. MK7 is just another MK game, Nintendo seems to be scared to take chances with the series after Double Dash wasn't received as well. RE: Revelations...looked very good, bought the series back to it's survival routes but overall I played it to the end and only found it to be serviceable, also the enemies were really bland. Kid Icarus, I enjoyed this...while it lasted but I didn't care to replay the game again. I loved the multiplayer but I hardly know anyone who had the game so hardly ever got to play it enough. Future titles like Paper Mario & Luigi's Mansion 2 looks good enough but still...nothing essential. The 3DS doesn't have one game that is essential. It has many games that are good enough but nothing like Mario Galaxy, Ocarina of Time (sssh yeah I know of the port but that is cheating), Super Metroid...nothing outstanding that wows me. Overall my feeling of the 3DS was that it was clearly rushed out, it kinda feels meaningless in a way. It's like Nintendo didn't know where else to go with a handheld so just did something a bit more powerful and added 3D which even they themselves don't push now. Not a bad gaming product in the least bit (just venting here) but 3DS does seem to be a very uninspiring platform, it is nothing more than a DSi with better graphic capabilities and some 3D. After the huge strides that the DS and the Wii achieved it doesn't feel like a proper successor.
