    When playing with SmileBASIC, i realized that 3DS has a plenty of input arsenal to toy with. However, i can't tell which one is the most unused one since i haven't played games that use most of their potential. Can you tell?

    Gyro for sure. Face Raiders used to be my favorite game.

    I think that games make quite good use of its potential considering the poor cpu/gpu in the device in comparison to the high quality of games achievable by it. Although some extra potential can maybe come from more use from its camera/microphone perhaps in some game sections?

    At first glance i though about AR, and is partially right. Right now there's no new/recent game that use it. But other thing would be the microphone since i the only game that enables voice chat was Heroes of Ruin. I haven't seen other game with such usage on 3DS.

    Plenty of games use the mic. I can think of Mario Party and Flipnote off the top of my head.

    Voice chat is also present in Pokémon gen. 6.

    As far as i know, that was exclusive for friendly matches (fighting against a friend you have on your friend list).

    Nope, you can initiate a voice chat anytime if both you and your friend are online.
