i have a 3DS and Vita and have several games for them. I've owned every iteration of the Game Boy and the DS. When I was a certain age, I grew out of Pokemon (probably about 12-13), and that essentially made portable gaming a weird void. I feel like many portable games for 3DS and Vita want way more time commitments than I feel like investing into a small screen console. I just don't want a full 10 hour experience on a 3DS along with tons of console and PC games that require the same. When I start a portable game, I get uninterested in 30-40 minutes. Does anyone else share this? Does anyone prefer their longer experiences on PC/consoles and portable experience on phones as a short time killer?
For me playing games on a handheld is always something I put up with rather than something I seek out. Nine times out of ten, I would rather play the game on a television with a controller.
Many times I try to sit down and play my 3DS, but it's such a pain in the ass, it's hard to enjoy whatever game I'm trying to play and usually give up. A game has to really be special to get me to play through it at length on a handheld.
