There's a whole new games world out there waiting to be discovered.
I had a SNES game player years ago,loved Mario and all the games available at that time,as did my kids,but once a colleague of mine shew me the virtues of the new PS1 I was blown away,sold the SNES(much to the chagrin of the kids)and thought Playstation's for me now,and so it was till last month.
But after many hours online with COD and god knows what else,I grew weary of combat and thought back to those days of comparative ease of use and days of fun with the SNES.
And so it was I purchased a Nintendo 3DS,albeit second-hand I had doubts,but found myself anxiously awaiting its arrival.
When it came looking very small,yet in remarkably good condition,I charged it and played Super Mario 3D,and what an experience,with the 3D slider set to just under half-way,it was a wonderful and mind-blowing journey and very competitive,a totally new concept for me and 3d without special glasses,utterly incredible,since then I have played Zelda(a truly amazing game),Mario Karts,Steel Diver and they are all wonderful games,and you know what it really is a gem of a handheld.
The only problem is the shortage of adult type games and the price of the games but Ebay certainly helps with the price side of things.
For children under 15 it is in my humble opinion the best small games player out there,the price is reasonable and for sure games can be bought very cheaply if you look round so why not give it a go?
I did and I'm 64 this year,enjoy the world of colour,and depth and thrills that is the Nintendo 3DS,my granddaughter and I love it.Read full review
