(Nintendo - company, or cultural icon?)

If you’re a fan of multi-dimensional entertainment, with a penchant for handheld gaming, the Nintendo 3DS might be for you. Despite somewhat clunky visuals – the Nintendo brand offers something unique to gaming.

For those who first interacted with Nintendo in their 90’s childhood, the Gameboy likely occupies a warm place in their hearts. I remember playing Pokémon Red, and constantly being eradicated in Star Wars: A New Hope on my trusty ‘grey brick’. In fact, the Pokémon Red theme song still gives me chills.

It’s this legacy that keeps it competing with tablets, smartphones and high definition. Reliable, fun and generally not too expensive, Nintendo products are the old faithful handheld gaming option.
