Nintendo was my childhood, but I've never been a Mario fan, so nothing that's available currently interests me, or warrants a console purchase.
Well, Bravely Default comes in 2014, if you're into RPGs.
(Most) Mario, RPGs, and Japanese games just aren't for me. I'd love to buy a 3DS, but I've looked at the games and all that grabs my attention until Smash Bros. is Resident Evi: Revelations (kinda null now that it'll be on consoles), Mariokart, and MAYBE whatever the current Zelda remaster is, and MGS3 (again, kinda null now that I have the HD Collection on my Vita).
That, and the fact that god only knows when the next "3DS XL Lite 1.5" will be released.
