Hey, koffi~

Those who own the 2DS unite! Stand proud that you weather a storm against the waves of tyranny and those that would seek to put you down! Down with 3D and down with 3D gaming! 3D gaming is not as cool as it sounded, koff~

I try to keep my 3D on most of the time, after a while it does hurt my eyes so I have to turn it off for a while - or I can give the 3DS XL a break - but my Pokemon X addiction keeps making me come back for more (so I just turn off 3D slider off for a while).

The 3D effect of Nintendo 3DS is certainly unique, as it doesn't require you use any glasses. But I never play games with 3D, though, because if I stare at the screen for too long by having it enabled, I always get strain on my eyes. This causes a lot of other people to have eye strains, too, not just me. d: Eye strains may not give you any permanent damage, but still… it's good to avoid them. While playing Pokémon Y, I've had 3D enabled only on three occasions—the character selection screen, my first trainer battle, and when encountering Yveltal. I might've turned on the 3D two - three more times, but those don't necessarily count, since they were for testing purposes only. xD

If I knew that they were going to release the 2DS, then I would've bought that instead and be able to save some money. Some people may find this console to be a little bad-looking, but since I don't use the 3D very often, it would have been the best option for me. One thing that they could've done, though, is make the 2DS flat and have a single screen, sort of like a tablet... but oh well, maybe next time!
keeping it captured.

Off. Even if it doesn't hurt your eyes, it is definitely not good for your eyes.
Sure it's a nice feature, but I rather not ruin my eyesight.

I'll turn it on actually sometimes when I feel like it, but generally most of the time I play in 2D rather than 3D

I let a friend of mine borrow my 3ds and now my 3d doesn't turn off so.. I don't really have a choice. I used to always have it off but it doesn't really bother my eyes so much now that I have it on all the time.

Since it's really only battles and other little scenes that are 3D I keep it off to save battery. When I do turn it on it's normally during a cut scene like during the plot when it is in 3D and so forth. Helps since I can never seem to get the angle of the 3DS right so yeah. Little bits at a time hahah.

Do you really think they'll ship a product that could be as hazardous as ruining your eyesight?

It's not a matter of whether or not it's good for your eyesight or not, it's a matter of accustoming to it. A lot of people see the 3D for the first time and they'll feel dizzy, and write it off after that. In a way, yes, that's understandable, but that's how it is for everyone - including myself. Once you get past 5 minutes looking at the 3D - BAM! You're now used to it, and there is a probability you'll highly enjoy it and found how particularly enhancing it is. Now it's completely fine if you don't like it, and there's many reason why; I just don't think "it hurts my eyes" is a good one. Granted, if it still hurts your eyes after looking at it for a prolonged time, then there's a problem. However, I haven't seen that case with anyone yet. There's a reason why so many people warmed up to the 3D compared to launch and is now a very favorable addition. (I won't take this thread as an argument against that. Lots of people here just bought a 3DS or just bought it for Pokemon.)

And let's be honest, looking at 3D is as much of a bad thing as looking at your computer screen for a long while. You know where I'm getting at here.

Off, but I still have the habit of turning it on whenever something intense happens, like mega evolution or when I go into a cave or other 3D environment.

I can't actually use it for more than a minute or two 'cause my eyes suck, but if there's an evolution or interesting cutscene I'll turn it all the way up for a few seconds.

I keep it on. I'm one of Nintendo's chosen ones who aren't bothered by it, I guess. Though I usually have it off if I'm not at a charger. I always have it on at important cutscenes and battles, though.
Yo, isn't Finneon an Eevee evolution? I mean, it has -eon in the name...

I have glasses, and my eyesight is already really bad, so I usually keep it off. If I do have it on, I only keep it on for about a minute.

I switch. Usually on, sometimes off. I like the 3DS for the 3D, and the better games.

I play with 3D on all the time. I got used to it after the first or second day. It was really uncomfortable in the beginning. I got headaches, too. :x

I play with the 3D off because it's more clearer in 2D imo.
