You’ll hate: The lack of 3D (and the lack of software adaptation to account for it)
Okay, this one seems obvious, but stick with me here: The lack of 3D negatively impacts some games. In the years since the release of the original 3DS, Nintendo has become exceptionally good at creating great 3D effects that don’t strain your eyes and look legitimately amazing. Sometimes, these effects even make the game easier to play. But, admittedly, most other developers don’t use the 3D capabilities to great effect, and there are plenty of games that don’t use them at all.
But it’s not just in games. The lack of 3D is thrown in your face all over the system, right down to the fact that it still has a 3D camera on the back, despite not being able to view 3D photos. At one point, while messing with the camera application, the tutorial character popped up and asked me if I’d been having fun taking 3D pictures. I hadn’t. It was heartbreaking. Seriously, though, it seems as though Nintendo just removed the 3D without adapting the software to make it feel like you’re not missing anything, and that’s disappointing.
