I have been thinking about this off an on, and debating if i should spend 200 dollars (CDN) on a 3DS. There is finally some games i would play like pokemon and fire emblem to kill time when im bored.

I play all my games on PC, and the odd one on PS3.

Is it worth the money? sell me people!! haha

Since I got my 3ds this summer, it's basically all I play. I thought it would be a distraction, turns out that it's the perfect rpg machine for me,since I can play on the go! I recommend the XL - the bigger screens are worth it. If you like s-rpgs I also recommend Devil Survivor Overclocked. Shin Megami Tensei IV is also on the system, and it's currently my GOTY. You won't regret it!

Yep. I mostly play PC games these days and I don't regret my 3DS purchase at all. There's a ton of great games you can't get anywhere else so I think its totally worth getting. Shin Megami Tensei 4 is great and the new Pokemon is super fun, plus the eShop is actually kind of amazing.

I also play most of my games on the PC, but I don't regret my XL purchase at all. Pokemon, Fire Emblem, Shin Megami Tensei 4, Pushmo, Crashmo, tons of great games... all in the palm of your hand.

Fantastic system. I use it mostly on my train ride to work (which is an hour long) and it's perfect for that. I also recommend Super Mario 3D Land, probably the best mario game outside the Galaxy games in the last 10 years. Fire Emblem is incredible.

How can you be asking that? What is this, 2011?

Yes, you should. Go buy one right now.

If this was 2 years ago, I would say no, but it's worth it now. Go get one.

#15 Posted by TheLastGunslinger (338 posts) -

Pokemon X/Y, Fire Emblem, Super Mario 3D Land, Ace Attorney 5 (out next week), Luigi's Mansion, etc.

It really is a fantastic little system.

Yes it is very much worth it. Especially for the games you are interested in.

Not sure how to sell you on it. There are a tonne of worthwhile games on the platform. More than you likely have time for. Get it.

I bought a 3DS a few months ago as the first handheld system I've ever owned. I can honestly say it's been a great investment. With new games only at $40 in the U.S. I don't hesitate as much to buy the games I want. It's a fantastic system and has more than enough great games to justify it. I highly recommend getting a 32 gig SD card if you plan on buying any of your games digitally though.

Yes I would recommend it. Honestly at this point it's hard for anyone to say the 3DS isn't worth the money. So many great games and some more coming out soon.

I bought a used 3DS XL for $140, it's in great shape, the guy I bought it from didn't even unpack the AR cards. But I love the system. I got my pokemon fix and there's a huge library of 3ds and DS games for you to pick from.
