It’s time to face facts, people. The Nintendo 3DS
went ahead and launched without any clear defining title to back it up. I mean, when you think a title like Nintendogs + Cats
is going to please your hardcore audience, perhaps it’s time to rethink a few things. Like, what you were even thinking in the first place and perhaps what drugs you were on at the time.
We at Geekosystem feel your pain. It seems like it’s going to take some time for the 3DS to really pick up steam—if it ever does. In the meantime, we suggest going back to the old standby that never steered you wrong: The Nintendo DS
. Sure, it might not be the prettiest gal in town, but it’ll stick by you no matter what.
I’m not sure when that metaphor got away from me. The following list of Nintendo DS games shows that the last-generation handheld still has quite a bit more magic than the shiny new glassless 3D handheld, and though both handhelds are full of gimmicks, the best route for gaming isn't always to utilize said gimmicks--and in the case of the 3DS, the best route isn't to base an entire generation of gaming on a single gimmick.
