I'm really feeling left out without a 3DS so I have to live vicariously through all of you! If you had to choose one feature that really makes the system shine, which one would it be? I've only listed features that are currently being used.

The 3D screen. While all features are nice, especially Face Raiders and the Mii Maker, the 3D screen is nothing like anything else I've ever come in contact with.

Face Raiders still makes me very happy so I thought I would give it some love.

I think I have to go with the AR cards, but Face Raiders is a very close second! They're the "wow" factors I was looking for.

AR Games are pretty amazing, though I haven't messed with them that much yet. Face Raiders was fun for a laugh.

3D screen haha, which pretty much governs the AR games, no?

The 3D is more jaw-dropping than I initially though, for sure. When you go into the rocketbelt in PW and you go directly above you character you can see his head, hands, and legs on different layers all dangling below him, and it looks fantastic.

3D screen, by far. I love everything about the system, but seeing 3D without glasses is just so wonderful and natural that I couldn't possibly not rank it higher than everything else.

So its just the screen that does it for the majority? I thought it would have been some of the installed software. I was really bummed to not be able to try any of it out at Best Buy. I only got a shot with PWR.

Something that sort of took me by surprise is a combination of things. The pedometer, Activity Log and Street Pass all combine to create a very awesome social aspect to the system. Activity Log and Pedometer allows players to track their progress with number of steps taken and encourages other players to do the same. In doing so, Street Pass is then more likely to be effective... although I do live in a crappy small town and haven't even run into anyone else with a 3DS yet. It's still very cool I think

The 3D was really nice, but that slide pad is really nice! I think I prefer it to a control stick... so that's my vote. Maybe because I only got to try a 3DS out at best buy (pilotwings)

It wasn't an option in the poll, but what I really like so far is the online capabilities. Much, much better than the original DS's online features.

The screen of 3Dness. Works very well with the installed software as well as the games I bought.

As for the online, they really need to update it so you can send each other messages and online game requests.

Circle pad and online features.
Posted: 03/29/11, 03:20:21
I really want to vote StreetPass, I love the feature and it sort of makes me want to go out on my own adventure and venture to new places to increase my chances of meeting up with other people's 3DS's.

But I have to say the 3D screen is definitely my favorite feature. It just looks soooo good, I can't wait to see how it's incorporated into different games.

But StreetPass is a very close second.

Seriously, the 3D screen! Of course that is what most people would say, so other than the 3D screen, I would have to go with the circle pad. That was the one thing I thought the DS lacked and esp. for games like Super Mario 64, trying to play that game with the directional input really ended up ruining the game...or at least for me it did.

Don't get me wrong, the directional pad worked very well for alot of games, but in today's gaming world all systems, either handheld or home console needs a joystick control, circle pad, ect
