The 3DS: Social Gaming for Introverts l That Gamer Hub

"I have never been a fan of social gaming. In the four years I have had my Xbox 360, I’ve accumulated roughly seven friends. On PS3, I had one, but I deleted him. I’ve disabled any game notifications on Facebook, and blocked requests from friends. When I play online, I mute everyone, including my team mates. I like my gaming to be quiet and solitary. So why is it I am so enamored with the 3DS? It’s a device that is clearly built around getting out, meeting people, and sharing your experiences as a gamer. Experiences that, frankly, I don’t want to share. Yet here I am, glancing anxiously at my system after I’ve gone to the store, or taken a bus ride, in the hopes that a little green LED light will inform me that I have made a new friend."
