1. The 3D works!! There are times when I look at a game and it just blows me away how clear and beautiful the 3D is. It's like I'm watching the game world through a window instead of looking at an image on a screen. It's often right up there with the best 3D movies. Not only do things seem to go off into the distance, they often seem to pop up out of the screen like I could just reach in and grab them. Nintendo pulled it off and it's no gimmick. It's real.
I was hyped for the 3DS but when I played the demo of Pilot Wings and Super Street Fighter, my excitement waned. The 3D wasn't used very well in those games. But after I bought one (solely for the updated Legend of Zelda), I became a believer. And best of all, after the intial period of getting used to it, my eyes have adapted. I only play on the max 3D setting (unless I'm using the motion controls) and I play for hours on end without a problem.
