The Gameboy was ground-breaking, so the question is very difficult to answer for me. But, the 3ds xl does everything I'd want it to, I can't even imagine where Nintendo handhelds will be in 5 years, they really are so very clever.
I've tried to like Zelda as well, but I just don't get the hype. I completed tPHG, thought that was okay. Spirit tracks was a struggle, gave up after a few hours. Then came the 3ds & the OoT. 30 hours in, & the water temple destroyed it, can't even look at the box art without a small cringe setting in.
Slightly off topic, but as everyone seems real helpful here I'll give it a go.....
Do you need motion plus for the old wii remotes when using them on the wii u, or is it just with some games? 3d World & NSMB U are the two I'm mainly concerned with.
Another eight years a member quitting over here as well. Just don't understand the changes, unless it was done to jettison a lot of forum users. Hopefully a few of the old school shall meet again somewhere else.
