Very interesting and true points in here so far, indeed. I just checked what I was playing in the past 20 years or so and I have to say the systemwide best decade of gaming was, without a doubt - for me: 1995 - 2005.

I was playing Battlefield 1942, Battlefield Vietnam, Advance Wars, The Advance Mario games, Rogue Squadron, the fantastic Timesplitters 2 and Gladius, Spartan Total Warrior, Halo 1, Halo 2, Burnout 2, Burnout 3 Revenge, GTA III San Andreas, Crackdown, Need for Speed Most Wanted (the original one) and many other awesomely stunning games. And I still think ANY console has to live up to the quality library the Gamecube had, unfortunately many people missed the best of it because at the time when the good stuff was rolling in most people switched console to xbox or ps2 already.

Anyways I hope the best for the 3DS with remakes/ports from GBA, NGC, N64 and SNES era and new IPs and strong third party and indie support.

In my defense, I was talking about the games lacking in 2011 for the 3DS.

I'm aware there were quite a few great games released last year on other systems. How can it be argued that this year hasn't been better than the drought-ridden year for 3DS that was 2011? Everything was barren up until the holidays.

I believe in make believe~

@Emaan I still fail to see how this year was "packed". Pretty much every platform except for the Wii had more worthwhile games coming out this year, at least on paper. That includes the Vita, by the way.

@moomoo, I may have worded that wrong. My point being just that, for the 3DS at least, this year was much more involved than last year. Maybe packed wasn't the correct word perhaps? I still don't see why other systems are even being brought into discussion considering this is about 2013 for the 3DS. I stated my opinion on this year versus last year for the 3DS.

:O

@Emaan Okay. I agree with you then. The first year for 3DS sucked.

I brought the other devices into discussion for comparison, more than anything else. It's kind of hard to say there's a lack of games if there's nothing to compare it to.

As for the topic at hand, I doubt we'll see the system's definitive year until about 4 years into the cycle. The Wii's best year in terms of games output (based on how I see it) was 2010, while the DS had a pretty incredible run from 2007 to 2009, where an excellent game was getting released every month. The 3DS isn't quite there yet.

Definitely NOT. 3rd party support IS lacking and will be lacking until there is a bigger install base and all the BIG ninty franchises are scheduled for a 2014/2015 release - at least thats my guess. We might see a mario kart or zelda a bit earlier but smash brothers, metroid, possible fzero revival are really far off. I think late 2014 will be really strong for Wii U. Just look how long it takes for the 3DS to really gain momentum!

But First party Wii U support is the best we've seen since the freakin' Gamecube, so I'll be happy.

I'm not sure if I follow. It's a little early to be determining that.

There's already 6 games I care about - Bayonetta 2, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, LEGO City Undercover...oh wait, Monster Hunter and Ray Man are Third Party. I stand corrected. Good year either way, though, even if it's not Gamecube good. Still, if we get, like, 3 more games, it'd definitely be up there.

Back on TOPIC what do you think are the 3DS titles coming 2013 that will define the year and/or be a system seller?

For me it's (in this order):

  • Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
  • unannounced Zelda game (Link to the Past remake or new 2D Zelda would be awesome)
  • Fire Emblem Awakening
  • Castelvania Lords of Shadows
  • Animal Crossing
  • Lego City Undercover
  • Code of Princess (since it isn't out in EU yet)

I'd really hope for even more awesome games, those titles are strong and Monster Hunter alone might carry me through 2013 but still it's a really low frequency of awesome games compared to DS. Again, it's only the second year for 3DS right?

Generally we get an announcement of a new Zelda a couple years before they release it. They mentioned Skayward Sword what 2009? The only thing we can be sure about this year is Fire Emblem, Luigi's Mansion and Animal Crossing. Doesn't sound like "Year of the 3DS" to me.

Great list, but it was missing a few things (also removed MH4, because we probably won't get 3 Ultimate & 4 in the same year).
