Should I Buy A 3DS?

I am considering buying the 3DS just I am concerned about a few things, will I like all of the games? Firstly, I would like to say, the main reason I was to buy this system is for the fact that it has the next Paper Mario game on it, and most of you guys if not all know how much I love Paper Mario haha. But what my question is, will all the games be worth it? I am aware that there is a lot of great franchising games being released for this system which is another reason I want to purchase it. Is there anything else you guys can add to 'persuade' me to buy this system.

Well, for the reasons you stated. Also, the DS is being phased out, and being replaced with the 3DS. If you want to enjoy new handheld offerings from Nintendo, this will be the only way to do so in the near future.

The graphics and sound are also better than the DS, in addition to the system's obvious feature of displaying 3D without the need for 3D glasses.

I think that if you're interested in it, you might as well get it. The games library at the moment isn't great, but if you wait around Fall/Winter, you should be able to snag a couple great games.

Thanks for your testimony and you do have a point about the DS eventually be forgotten, but that wouldn't surprise me that much haha.

Whether it's worth it really depends on both the games you want and the ones you're interested in.

Anyway, get Megaman Legends 3 when it comes out

They have a new Megaman game? That is really cool! When I was hearing rumors about the 3DS long before the release I was certain I was going to buy it for the rumors saying that Pokemon B/W was going to be released for it, and now that I'm hearing about all these great games that were confirmed such as Paper Mario, Final Fantasy etc, I am leaning towards buying it, and plus. If Nintendo/Pokemon decides to continue the 3 game generation chain that they have been doing, I am hoping to expect a Pokemon Grey in the soon to be future for the 3DS which is another reason for me.

Yes , you can play old DS games on it. As for gameboy games, you can play them, but you have to buy them from the 3DS's online store(can't remember the name) but only for GB and GBC, I don't know about GBA games as of yet
