So, I got my mom a 3DS for Christmas!

#1 Posted by big_jon (5723 posts) -

I got it for 150$ it came with Zelda Ocarina of time, New Super Mario Bros, and Mario 64 DS. I wanted to spoil her this year, I can't wait for her to open it up!

You'd better hope your mom doesn't use Giant Bomb, duder! :P

Damn that's a good deal, where did you get it from?

#4 Posted by big_jon (5723 posts) -

@Unknown_Pleasures:

Some guy off craigslist, it's about three months old.

My mom has a DS and she use to play it a lot but now she mostly plays games on her iPod touch....or Plants Vs. Zombies on the PC.

Nice! You should get her Mario Kart 7 as well if she likes racing games.

My dad got my mom a 3DS 4 or 5 months ago and it has thusfar been used for about 15 minutes. By me. Eventually that Layton/Phoenix Wright game will come out and she will play that, but realistically it was a bad purchase. I hope that your mom likes the games that you got, because otherwise you've been had.

You should just take it....I use my mom's DS all the time.

What did your mom do to you to deserve that?

Well, it's in Qatar and I'm in Nova Scotia. Anyway, the only game that interests me on it is Starfox 64 which I can get my fill of in about half an hour. Actually, probably 5 minutes. I just want to see what it looks like in stereoscopic 3D. Man, nuts to the 3DS.

I once purchased my father Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage for Christmas. He never played it once, but I earned 100% completion. No doubt it's the best thing I ever gave to anyone.

#15 Posted by big_jon (5723 posts) -

My mom likes Nintendo games.

That's an awesome gift as long as she likes games like that. My mom only plays Professor Layton and Angry Birds.

Is there a point to this thread?

your mom sounds way cooler than my mom -______-

My parents are too old for that. My dad was too old when fucking Atari came out. He claimed to have bought one and never really understood it, so I don't even try with them. As for my mom, well we had to get her a CD player this year because an Apple TV was too complicated for her to use. An Apple product... too complicated. I'm insanely surprised I grew up as technologically-minded as I did.

I was expressing my Christmas spirit, and this is related to video games. Don't like it? Than get the fuck out.

@big_jon: Good for you, she will have fun with something there, and get some true enjoyment out of it.

Thanks in advance.

are you kidding. gift cards are great if they are to the right store. i never know what i want since i buy it when i need it and everything that i might want is far to exepensive so gift cards are great.
