said by IowaCowboy:I definitely think you'll enjoy it. Since you like Mario games, take the opportunity to check out the Mario and Sonic London Olympics game as well. That's pretty fun.
I am probably likely to buy the 3DS XL. The reason I decided to buy a 3DS is I was in a GameStop playing a demo of New Super Mario Bros 2. I always have been a fan of the Mario games since I was a young child and a social worker took me to his house to play Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt on his NES in 1990. I was 6 years old at the time. Now at 29 years old, I still like to play the Mario games (Super Mario bros, Mario Kart series, Mario Party series, etc).
I get paid tomorrow so I'll probably stop at Best Buy and pick one up.
