How can people consider a system with only 1 AAA game and a rehash at that to be so good? Even the no games 360 had more games than 3DS.

The 3DS has 6 AAA games but tons of other great games. Super Mario 3D Land, A Link to the Past, Animal Crossing, Pokemon, etc. etc.

I agree it is really over-rated for someone that has other games to play, But it has more than 1 good game. Critic scores shouldn't affect your point of view of games.

I remember this place in 2011 when the 3ds launched...oh how times change.

There are a lot of games for the 3DS that are AAA material.

Gamespot just thought they weren't up to snuff. Only Zelda was able to break the mold.

#13 Posted by FlamesOfGrey (7503 posts) -

Agreed and I've played more 3DS games then probably anyone who owns a 3DS.

Yeah, you sure proved that with no arguments and absolutely nothing to back you up.

The stupid shit that's posted here out of sheer boredom never ceases to amaze me.

3DS is a great system, utterly destroys Sony's ones.

360 was also a fantastic system with more and better games than PS3.

Deal with it, Sony bitch ;)

Have you taken a look at the 3ds library? there are endless good games out there for 3ds.

#17 Edited by Heirren (16556 posts) -

overrated? I cant even keep up with the games being released.

#18 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38214 posts) -

It really isn't. I'm already loving the heck out of mine

#19 Edited by trugs26 (5296 posts) -

Jeez. Just get the 3DS and enjoy it. You don't need to be a fanboy about it.

#20 Posted by Ghost120x (3739 posts) -

I kind of agree, but not for the reasons of the TC. It's only overrated because many fanboys make the 3ds to be better than anything that has ever came out before it, and that is a lot of pressure that it simply can't live up to. It's just another good console with great games, nothing more, which is fine.

#21 Posted by GhoX (4798 posts) -

I thought I was going to blow through its exclusives in a week like I did with PS3.

I was wrong. Now I'm still working on Etrian Odyssey games...

#22 Edited by R4gn4r0k (16297 posts) -

So you think only AAA games are worth playing ?

lol

#23 Posted by chocolate1325 (32463 posts) -

It has some AAA games worth anybodys time bar Zelda. Mario Land 3D,Kid Icarus,Luigis Mansion and RE Revelations. Get over the fact it beat LOU to GOTY it's just their opinion in the end.

@NathanDrakeSwag:

I found most of Nintendo hardware overated except , Gameboy ,SNES and GC. Everything else was ... junk or a step behind competition.

#27 Edited by jg4xchamp (47383 posts) -

Duh, of course it is.

Still the only handheld of the two worth buying though.

#28 Edited by g0ddyX (3906 posts) -

Children Cartoon Games Unite! It's only a handheld. Cant really compare it elsewhere but to other handhelds.

#29 Posted by ImDaMan4Realz (94 posts) -

It's a decent system, but it's severely overrated

#30 Edited by hiphops_savior (7857 posts) -

@g0ddyX: Oh yes, the manliness of Teraway and Angry Birds combined makes a formidable team.

I don't know guy, it's looking pretty damn good to me. One of my friends is probably gonna be buying a 3DSXL and selling me his normal black 3DS for $50; pretty damn excited, but damn are there a ton of games I want to get for it! I am gonna end up spending a fortune unless I get gamefly or something! Fucking Mario and Luigi is a must play, new Zelda is a must play, new Pokemon is a must, Fire Emblem, etc etc

btw, no surprise Sony fanboys hate Nintendo games and systems; Nintendo actually makes game games and not shitty movie games with generic gunplay.

I see someone is upset that TLOU wasn't awarded GOTY by GS

Have you taken a look at the 3ds library? there are endless good games out there for 3ds.

No there isn't. I own both a 3ds, a ds-lite and a vita and psp... guess what... 3ds is worst for game library out of all of them for my tastes.

Here is what I own for 3ds:

Zelda Orcania Of time remake
Zelda a link between worlds
Eterian Odyessy 4
SMT4
Monster Hunter 3 ultimate
Fire Emblem Awakening
Tales of Abyss
Resident Evil Revelations
Crimson Shroud
Code of Princess
Devil Survivor Overclocked

Thats it... All great games mind you, but not this huge library that you people try to say exists.... I guess it would be bigger for me if I liked pokemon, mario and cartoonish non-games like animal crossing, but i don't , and that is the other half of the library that i am missing. Even Castlevania (which isn't metriodvania style... i didn't even buy... and I bought a ds lite just for those games... but without symphony of the night style...i care less).

So for someone who doesn't like mario, or pokemon, there is what i own really, not much, what games am I missing?

Meanwhile on the Vita, I own these:

Dragons Crown,
Lumines
Assassins Creed 3 lib
Persona 4 Golden
Disagea 3
Mortal Kombat
Silent Hill Book of memories
Super stardust Delta
Shinobido 2
Unit 13
Need 4 Speed Most wanted
Ragnorok Oyessee
New Little Kings Story
Uncarted Golden Abyss
Soul Sacrifice
Gravity Rush
Wipeout 2048
Tearaway
Virtues Last Reward
Touch my Katamari
Dynasty Warriors Next
Pixel Junk Monsters Deluxe
Killzone Mercanary
Y's Celetica
Jak 1 , Jak 2, Jak 3
Little Big Planet Vita
Motorstorm RC
Trails Urban
Knytt Underground
Strangers Wrath - Oddworld
Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear solid 3
Rainbow Moon
Stealth Inc.
Escape Vektor
Batman Blackgate
Plants Vs Zombies
Zen Pinball 2
Pinball Arcade
Retro City Rampage
Thomas was alone
Limbo
Jetpak joyride
Hotline Miami
Zombie Tycoon 2
Muramasa Rebirth
Dragon Fantasy Book 1
Dragon Fantasy Book 2
Guacamelee
Spelunky
CastleStorm
Mahjong Royal Towers
Velocity Ultra
Terraria
Ninja Gaiden Sigma
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
Tales of Montezuma Blitz
Treasure Park
Super Crate Box
Rymdkapsel
Passing Time
Frobrasher Says
Life Of Pixle
A_B Lyberanth
Break Quest Evolution
Sonic Racing Transformed

I won;t even get into the 50+ PSP games I have digitially or the 50+ PS1 games I own digittally either..

My point is... I don';t like mario or pokemon.... the list of games that I thought good enough to own come down to these lists. And The vita is vastly better in games library with VARIETY! Thats the key right there, I feel there is so much mario on 3ds its rediculous and that may be fine for some of you, but don't make it out like the 3ds library is leagues better, with more games because it isn't.

Neither system compares to the scope of library that the DS and PSP have though.... I blame smart phones and tablests for that... and it's a shame.

What gets me is the idiots who think there can only be one handheld... why? There is room for two, especially when they are oh so different.

-The vita offers a hd screen with dual analogs and dual touch screens with a much much much better cpu, gpu and ram...

-The 3ds offers dual screens (albeit crappy resolution) and a cool 3d filter effect, as well as a stylus bottom touch screen and clamshell design.

Both are worth owning... Why wouldn't you own both? Really, why? You are missing out if you don't!!!

Lol, the butthurt continues.

#35 Edited by Zassimick (6343 posts) -

How is this defined?

It's a great handheld with some amazing games; it's probably my favorite handheld console I've owned.

Wait... did I rate it too highly there? Hmm... this is awkward.

Who cares about your tastes tho?

#37 Edited by GreySeal9 (24106 posts) -

Agreed and I've played more 3DS games then probably anyone who owns a 3DS.

Whoopty-doo! Too bad that doesn't bolster your opinion like you seem to think it does.

#38 Edited by Floppy_Jim (25597 posts) -

It wasn't all that great before 2013. But it is 2013. So your opinion is wrong.

#39 Posted by Seabas989 (10111 posts) -

It does for some people who like to know my opinion on games. Don't care if it doesn't for you.

Well TC, you must think the Vita is a real piece of shit then.

#49 Posted by stoods (8 posts) -

Had to decide on a 3DS of a PS Vita for christmas, despite 3 of my housemates having 3DS, I chose the Vita. Not cause one is better than the other, granted 3DS is doing much better currently, however its just out of personal preference of the style of the device and the games. I makes sense when you aren't into mario or zelda or post-2nd gen pokemon. Which I understand they are good games, just never appealed to me as much as the sony exclusives have done. One cannot deny that 3DS hardware in inferior however they have the presence of more popular games, in number also.

#50 Edited by mariokart64fan (19379 posts) -

is some one lacking of their coffee, or is it menopause , either way , the 3ds is simply the best selling console on this market right now even out selling ps4 xbox one wiiu it may be a handheld but that doesn't take away all the great games it has to offer , and the only category all the systems mentioned above are better in is graphics and since one is a Nintendo product nintnedo wins either way ,

what does the vita have? let me know when it is not some console port of a game I can play on a superior product

and the vita has more catching up to do wiiu has sold 4.5 nearly closing in on vita and people call wiiu a failure , so if anything is a failure its the vita as wii u hasn't been on this market long enough to consider a failure and we don't even know how low the ps4 or x1 sales will dip until the early adapters get theirs
