The first time I played 3DS, my eyes felt tiredâ€”But since I played for three straight hours, I wasnâ€™t surprised. The next day, the 3D felt much more natural. It reminds me of getting used to trifocal glasses; my first day with the lenses was like looking through a funhouse mirror, and the next day everything looked perfectly normal. Eyes learn quickly!
Now Iâ€™m using 3D mode (set anywhere from 50% to 100%) most of the time and feeling no strain or tiredness at all. I really only turn off the 3D when I need to conserve the battery.
Though the â€œwowâ€ factor has dimmed, the 3D has definitely become a part of the 3DS â€œlookâ€ for me. Iâ€™m getting used to visual depth in these gamesâ€”taking the 3D for granted, but missing it when itâ€™s not there.
So, how are your eyes handling the 3D three weeks in? Do you turn it off often? Do you enjoy it as part of the experience, or would you not care if it werenâ€™t there at all?
