One Last Chance for Redemption (3DS)
As most of you members know here, I'm not exactly a nintendo fan lately. Mostly because I don't like their new consoles and how gimmicky they've become. So don't get me wrong but I think them targetting audiences that never gamed before (ie: girls, little kids) has made them lose touch with what having a good console for people like me is like, thus causing people like me to look the other direction and get a 360 or ps3 in others cases.
For whatever reason I can't find a good console really, let's look at it from my perspective and most of this won't make sense to most of you younger members but this is what I've stuck with for so long:
We had a lot of Nes' back in the day and around the exact same time we were still gaming for the nes and snes while at the n64 throughout the '90s and I absolutely adored the snes and n64 especially, so many good memories on those, to keep this short my brothers and I also adored sega almost as much and would have gone either with sega or nintendo but it wound up nintendo all the time. Holy crap, here comes Gen 5 where a million and one consoles are trying to join and get batted right down. Now a popular brand company jumps in again with golden timing and everyone loves them. They do the same again an destroy the sega empire and couldn't give a crap, nintendos struggling then another company jumps in for gen 6 and because 2 consoles have a dvd player and great timing they beat the gamecube.
Next, nintendo goes for a new strategy with a million controllers and an awkward handheld and tries to revolutionalize the market by targetting everyone with a crazy invention. They become popular so they say eff their old ways and their old fans and now the wii/Ds both are indecent consoles to me as a former huge fan and only very few franchises appeal (NSMB, Pokemon). Here I'm stuck with these 2 consoles I hardly ever use, and I'm sure you're all razzing me for hating them at this moment but I don't hate them, they offer very little to me and I'm dissapointed, however... The Ds happened to strike my attention much more so than the wii and there was a time where I adored it, then nothing good was coming out and theres only a handful of games I enjoy... Also, this happened:
Anyone reckonize this model? It's hard to when nintendo kept shoveling new models on and my brothers and I each have one of these with a practically unplayble screen... I'm not trying to put nintendo down but it's unlike them to make hardware like this and the fact of the matter is I have a ds that is in pretty rough shape even though I took care of it it was destroyed after a week. Maybe not a week to the point it's at today but it had several scratches after every use.
I still use the ds every once in a while because I do like a good few dozen of the games as long as they have a point to me and aren't gimmicky... So, the 3DS does peak my curiosity since the ds did get a right in later models that I am not buying (only like 16 models at that).
I know this post has been dragged out Waaaaay past what I initially intended and I apoligize. I want to know from you guys what this console has to offer since I haven't payed an interest until now, so tell me... What good is coming with the 3ds? I heard a new mario kart which I have hopes for... I'm sure I could research more and I will but I want to hear from real fans too, what you're excited for. Tell me, I'm honestly curious and have a large intention of buying this console considering all the companies are going the gimmicky way and if anyone can do it bes I'm going with the company I've been with for most of my life that still exists in hardware.
PS: Don't comment on how my opinion is somehow wrong like last time, take what I said and how I feel about nintendo and tell me if it is worth it. I don't want to hear I'm wrong and this isn't a flame nintendo thread on my part meaning this isn't a flame me thread. Please consider this and we can all be happy, thankyou.
Edit: I will also add apoll, just judge on my opinion prior to this console and what you think of the console if I should buy it.

This isn't a new model, though.
Sure, the 3DS Lite is going to be announced 6 months after, but still.
I pick none of those poll options. I say, wait for a while, and if it all seems good, get it.

This thread is silly! you realize that both the 360 and PS3 are just targetting their own markets, right? i dunno why ur so angry with Nintendo, their business market is the same as it has been for the last 15 yrs! youve just grown into a cynical retro fag. your attitude towards the 3DS as some kind of possible saviour is only building up ridiculous expectations. Stop looking to Nintendo to recreate your feelings of nostaligia.
and yeah, If you are interested in the 3DS, then do your own research, my man! Writing a big long thread that nobody cares about is just attention getting
