    So, I'm interested in knowing what age group has the most 3DS users.
    your friends an idiot. the 3ds is the fastest selling console on the market and selling like crazy. the wiiu is in a really bad place right now but nintendo are still making tons of money and its all because of the 3ds, thats how popular it is.

    nintendo products are popular with all age groups

    If most people didn't gnow up with Pokemon the DS would be a huge failure. People don't play pokemon because it's a high quality game, they play it because it's nostalgia and they grew up with it (which is fine, nothing wrong with that). If the game then happens to be mediocre to good then all the better.

    Most people I know who own a DS have bought it for Pokemon only. There are the Zelda fans as well ofc, but compared to the pokemon fanbase that number is worthless. :P

    Edit: Last Nintedo console I bought was a gameboy SP back when it got released. I something try a DS game on my friends DS (I'l probably play his new Zelda game when hes done with it) but I'l never buy one myself. A console is not worth it for 1 or 2 games.
    yes it is because its a quality game.

    pokemon is the 2nd best selling video game series in the WORLD. you dont get to that spot just because of nostalgia. the pokemon fanbase is always growing and changing.

    the games have always been high quality and continue to be. all you have to do is play other monster raising/battling rpgs to see that pokemon is clearly at the top in terms of quality.

    monster rancher, digimon, dragon quest monsters. none of those games even come close to pokemon in terms of quality

    Unfortunately, I forgot to enable multi-choice for the poll

    If a mod can enable it, then the poll would probably a little less "biased".

    27. Didn't get just for pokemon. I own OoT, FE:A, SMT, ALBW, Y, Star Fox, and various virtual console games. It's a fantastic platform.

    Well I bought my sons DS for him. He is 6 but I occasionally play the more adult games on it such as Final Fantasy and the Zelda games. Games like Pokemon are directed at children, it just so happens that the people who grew up with Pokemon loved it so much as a child they continue to play it. I'm sure it is rare that any adult who knows nothing about Pokemon would pick up the game and enjoy it. I didn't grow up with it and from what I seen it's pretty silly. My son isn't growing up with Pokemon either so it won't be something he enjoys either. I guess my point is there are adult games on the DS that you can't expect kids between 1-10 to grasp.

    On that note, I talked my sons grandmom (my mother) into buying him Zelda A Link Between Worlds so I could play it. #selfish

    23. I got one solely for Pokemon, but bought a few more titles (Zelda, Bravely Default et al) for good measure too. Worthy purchase so far.

    People who think Pokemon games are solely directed at children are equal to those who called it "a fad" in the 90's.

    Try claiming that is for children.

    Honestly, I'm pretty sick of the idea of pigeonholing things that can be enjoyed by younger people as exclusively for them. I mean, just because something uses bright colors and lacks sex and/or gore doesn't mean adults can't enjoy it. Don't get me wrong, if you like that stuff, then more power to you. It's just that some of us enjoy things that can be shared with a wider audience.

    Edit: To stay on topic:

    27, have had one since launch. Love it.

    I've been playing Nintendo handhelds since the beginning and I don't see myself getting tired of their titles (Handheld & Console) anytime soon.

    27, I have 3DS XL.

    Bullshit. They could have put Digimons with the same quality out there and it wouldn't sell for shit. Nostalgia franchises sell, they always have and always will.

    I keep seeing that, why? It's not biased, not even close. Most people are open for "childish" games and likewise console, if this poll was posted on a forum for elderly then I'd say it would be a bad place.
