As the only retail game I have for the 3DS is Zelda, I hadn't really used the D-pad until getting the Ambassador downloads. I've gotta say the D-pad feels so cheap and squeaky and imprecise. I spend so much time playing my Gameboy Micro, and the difference is enormous. I really enjoy the screen resolution and the analog button. Why did Nintendo make such crappy ABXY buttons and D-pad? They know how to do it with the Micro and GBA SP. I know, I'm just complaining. There's always someone not happy with something, yadda yadda yadda.
