While it’s obviously not our intention to keep casting the Nintendo 3DS in a bad light, we are hearing that complaints are pouring in over the fact that the system’s 3D games are making users feel dizzy and are causing headaches during and after games.

This comes just a few days after we told you about a separate problem involving a crashing ‘black screen of death’ issue – you can read the full story again through the link. As for these latest health complaints by users – it doesn’t look good for Nintendo.

A report over on Max Console has detailed a list of complaints by 3DS users over on Twitter. If you check it out, you’ll see that the list is pretty lengthy as you can see in some of the examples below:

‘The 3D gave me a headache, so I hated it.”,
”Warning to everyone, if you’re already ill and have a migraine, DO NOT play the 3DS with 3D on. Urgh. ”
”Just had a go on the new Nintendo 3DS and i was very impressed! dizzy but impressed”

There is a lot more over at Max Console, so if you are thinking of getting a Nintendo 3DS, you should take a read first to get a idea of the full picture. For those of you who have already picked up a Nintendo 3DS – can you confirm that playing games for a short while results in feeling dizzy or getting a headache afterwards?

Obviously, we don’t want to raise any unnecessary panic here, but it obviously is an issue if so many users are feeling the need to complain on Twitter about it. Nintendo has already issued a statement on the matter, which you can read over at Joystiq.

How is your experience on the Nintendo 3DS so far?
