Typically, video games aren’t on my Christmas list but I have finally decided to stop borrowing my little cousins’ 3DS & get one of my own.

The last time I had a handheld game console was when I had the Game Boy Advanced SP. I think I was probably about 10 years old or so? That lasted for a couple years & then came summer camp.

I know that when people think of summer camp they think of outdoors stuff like canoeing, crafts, & playing catch. Well, I grew up in the desert where it’s hot as hell so we didn’t spend much time outdoors. Instead we spent a lot of time in the cool AC, playing video games for hours on end. However, I did cherish the time we spent outside because that meant I could watch all the cute 13 year olds skateboard <3. Anyways, this was a Christian summer camp so that meant no violent video games & because of this, Nintendo games were pretty much the only thing we got to play.

Nintendo video games are full of imaginary animated characters which means that the games could offer a little mischief but would always come off as innocent or lighthearted enough for the Christian directors. We had every Nintendo game from Super Smash Bros. to Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, which was super popular at the time. Over the summer I fell in love with Dance Dance Revolution, cute skater boys, & Nintendo’s various games.

After this point though video games kind of fell off for me. Middle school came & I actually made some friends. By the time I got to high school, other things occupied my time. It wasn’t until recently that I went back & revisited the world of Nintendo via the Wii. It didn’t take long for me to remember why I had loved these games as a kid & I really just felt like playing again. Plus I don’t have friends anymore so I thought getting a Nintendo DS would be a great addition to my life.


For those of you looking to get some real info on the new Nintendo 3DS, I’ll break it down for you:

In conclusion, I want one. I’m not sure if I want the XL or the standard size though. I don’t want to have to give up the screen size but I really like the idea of the interchangeable faceplates. Also, I think Nintendo should’ve just given the updated console its own name rather than just calling it the NEW Nintendo 3DS. Especially since there will be new games only playable on the the new 3DS. I feel like it’ll just get confusing but maybe I’m just being bougie. What do you think?
