It's an age old question for me. Do I want the thing just to want it, or will I actually USE it once I have it?
I recall how badly I wanted the PSP, and though I owned one for 2+ years, I only ever played Final Fantasy Tactics on it extensively. It became a dust collector, and I traded it in at a Gamestop for practically nothing.
I camped out at a local Target for a Wii when it was first released. I think in the years I've owned it I've probably gotten 24 hours of total use. Another dust magnet.
Now, my current craving is the 3DS. There will be a fabulous deal this weekend where I can get the regular 3DS for $130 or the 3DSXL for $160. I've never owned ANY version of the DS, so my possibilities for games to play are virtually endless.
But will I actually play the damn thing? Do I really have interest in it, beyond trying Ocarina of Time for a bit before growing bored? Hell, I have a dozen good Xbox games to play (I just got one this past Christmas) and my Steam list is sad in how packed it is with good games I've yet to touch. And I haven't even looked at my PS3, though games like Uncharted 3 and Arkham City are waiting for me.
Maybe I have enough. Then again, I have a hard time passing up a good deal, and this is certainly that. What say you Giant Bomb, 3DS or no 3DS? If I DO pick one up, what's one game I can't miss?
