As James from This Is My Joystick passes 100 hours of gaming on the Nintendo 3DS, it's time to reveal his overall thoughts on the device.
The number one issue is undoubtedly the games library. It’s rare for Nintendo to release a new console without some triple-A first party support, as that has always been their main strength. Yet, the first party releases for the 3DS initially consisted of Steel Diver, a mediocre submarine game, and Nintendogs and Pilotwings Resort, both making effective use of the 3D function but otherwise not differing much from previous releases in the series. Neither of these were real system-sellers.
