As Nintendo's 8th gen draws to a close this Friday, and a new era begins, post your tributes to the 3DS here and what it meant to you. To me 3DS was more than just a games machine. It gave me hope in early & Spring 2011 where my school social life was going through a particularly rough few months. Its desire to push technological boundaries fused with its beautiful Nintendo charm made it a wonderful place to escape to. Its games lineup is extroadinary. Bolstered with miles more power and features than the DS it played host to everything from big platformers and racers to niche Japanese indies. The two Marios of 2011 prove particularly memorable. It's accompanied me on 10 family holidays to date, providing not only games but also cameras etc. to capture my memories. Thank you, 3DS. You brought people (including this forum) together and helped define what sets Nintendo platforms apart. Share your tributes to one of Nintendo's finest systems here.
