The Price is too high

It's pretty much ignorance to call this whining.

Friend list has no messaging system

A factual flaw. Next.

Bottom scratches top screen design flaw!

So you're saying it's okay for the 3DS to scratch as a normal result of design? >_>

No eShop wtf?

Considering the lack of games, them not having an eShop ready at launch was ludicrous.

No gamez

There was a very visible game drought.
Steel Diver sucks

I'm pretty sure that criticizing a terrible game is not whining.
We have no eShop cards yet wtf?

So you think that Nintendo SHOULDN'T be making sure that many of its underage 3DS owners can actually buy games on their digital service?

Battery life sucks

It does suck.

RE Mercs has locked saves!

Which sucks.

Capcom cancelled Megaman Legends 3 OMG!

They cancelled all Mega Man games. Which sucks.

Apple>Nintendo
Smartphones>Nintendo
Vita>3DS


You didn't even form these three to sound like whining.
Starfox no online?

It's more of how Nintendo has done zero online titles, save for Pokédex 3D.

3DS eshop fails no good stuff ever releases!

It has yet to have an original video game - besides Pokédex 3D - for the eShop.

Games are too expensive!

People who think that criticizing game prices are whining are over-privileged and get games from their mummy and daddy.

brings back memories I can't wait to see how many more things we will whine about in the next 4-5 years of the 3ds lifespan!

Protip: Make sure that half of the things you list are less whining and more "criticisms of the 3DS that you can't defend against".

It is possible to whine about things that deserve criticism. Whining does not mean making invalid complaints. It means complaining in a peevish manner.

Calling it whining basically implies that it's something not worth complaining about. You can whine about being abused by your spouse, but you wouldn't call it whining.

What? I'm a usual defender of the 3DS, but I have to side with Vyers on this one. How can you call half of these "whiny fads"? When they are actual legitimate problems? I was part of the "bottom screen scratches the top screen" whiny fad. Because that is not okay. It is not ridiculous to expect a system that doesn't destroy itself.

Some of these whiny fads do deserve to be ridiculed.. Such as the Apple vs Nintendo stuff and the putting health and safety information as your favorite title. But there are so many on this list that are true and can't be dismissed as a whiny fad imo.

If I reported the abuse to the police that would be making a valid complaint. If I instead posted a load of self-pitying messages in forum threads looking for attention then that would be whining.

You forgot all the topics of white knights lying and calling a price match stealing.

and all the topics of people said 3DS is fail.

and all the topics of people claiming the price drop was just to compete with Vita.

and all the topics of fanboys saying that Nintendo is always right and no one can ever criticize them.

and all the 3DS is awesome now because of games that will come out, meaning the 3DS is actually not that great now, but maybe will get better when those games finally get released.

and all the topics about how the only good game is a 12 year old port.

and so on. You most only mentioned the topics about people not liking the 3DS, and a few of them are valid. You didn't mention any of the just as annoying 3DS fanboy topics except one. So how are we looking back at "all" of the "whiny fads" when you chose to be selectively bias against only the people that don't kiss Nintendo booty?

The price cut was planned from the start as a shrewd death-blow to the Vita. Those topics were funny!

To be fair to the TC there have been so many ludicrous topics on these boards anyone would struggle to remember them all.
