Game Informer - On Saturday, I completed my first game of 2014. While it took me the better part of a week, I never turned off the console. I never exited the game or returned to the main menu. From start to finish, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds was running on my 3DS XL.
Sleep mode continues to be my favorite feature of portable gaming. Sure, I love street passes on the 3DS and remote play on my Vita, but those pale in comparison to being able to suspend my game and resume seconds, minutes, or hours later. In fact, the only times I turn off my 3DS and Vita entirely is when I'm flying on an aircraft that hasn't yet received gate-to-gate electronic device clearance.
