would that be the best all around handheld system for a 5 year old?
my daughter had a 3ds xl and of course it broke. she did have it for a good while though. she has been playing games on an old android phone we gave
to her since the 3ds broke but its more of a pain in the ass really. the free games have ads and i dont want to put my payment info in cause she winds
up in the app store quite a bit and i dont want to accrue charges.
i really know # about games but she seems to be more and more into it.
i figured the 2ds would be the way to go because it plays all the games the ds and 3ds does. the 3ds was a fold over and that wound up being the
problem. she never used the 3d function so i figured the 2ds would be great.
gamestop has a new one with mario kart 7 for 80 bucks. she played mario kart a lot on the 3ds. she also liked smash brothers and kirby.
it does not have to be the 2ds but the only other ones i can think of are the psp and the ps vita. are they even still making games for those?
i thought about the wii u but 2 things that turned me off was the cost and i really dont want the main tv tied up with video games.
then again i could put a system in her room.....
basically i have no idea which route i want to go.
if you have or had a 5 year old that was into games which way would you go?
im not opposed to forking over some cash if its going to be a good system that we can find a good amount of games for.
obviously i dont want any of that first person shooter crap.
games like mario
maybe some donkey kong action
that style of play
any help is much appreciated
i really just want a decent selection of games that a kid would enjoy. not loyal to any type of system
hell i see game cube bundles on craigslist for 100 bucks with a lot of games that i am tempted...
dont care about resale value or trade value or any of that
a decent selection of games is the most important thing
also it does not have to be the best graphics with the most cutting edge features....
