Topic: poll Does the 3DSs' 3D effects hurt your eyes? :(

For me it appears to be a game by game basis. I now have 5 of the launch titles to try out and only 2 of them (Pilotwings and Monkey Ball) give me any "trouble". Basically I think that the distances get a little much for my eyes in those games. The things that are far away have a really deep 3D effect and my eyes seem to want to try to focus on them differently. If I tone down the effect, it's fine.

The other games, SSF4, Lego Star Wars and Rayman don't seem so bad, although I've not played a lot of Rayman.

It doesn't bother me. My mother, on the other hand, can't watch it at all. It really bothers her.



The 3D so far has only give me minor eye problems but it doesn't hurt it just strains my eyes for a few minutes.

Only when it's late and I've had a full session do I have problems. All in all though I would have gotten those problems on the gameBoy or the DS.

Be excellent to each other


I haven't had any problems. The worst that's happened is I start to lose focus and a double image appears, even in the zone. But by looking away and back again ends that problem.

I haven't experienced any problems or discomfort playing my 3DS yet. Right now I only own Steel Diver and Pilotwings Resort but I should be getting Super Street Fighter IV and Nintendogs + Cats very soon. I'm eager to see how my eyes will handle the 3D effects on those games.



First time, it started to hurt my head after an hour or so on full.

Couple days later, I'm totally used to it and can rock full power as much as I want.

Now that I've had extensive time playing time with the 3DS, I can safely say that the 3D doesn't bother me in the least. Zero problems.

I have poor eyesight, and I play pretty much exclusively in 3D. It doesn't bother me one bit.
