@darkfenrir Well going off of not knowing what you have ill say Luigi's Mansion has a nice onle that extends the game very well. Also it will take a while to 100% it as there is a lot to do. Fire Emblem will last a long while as well and tons of dlc if you want to spend the extra cash. If rpgs are your thing then I got a lot of miles out of Etrian Odyssey 4. Wait you're from Europe aren't you? Well keep an eye out for it as I beleve its out soon over there. Mario and Luigi should get you a lot of miles though so don't pass it up!

@OldMan-Tech I currently have Kid Icarus: Uprising and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and I sold my Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, I got bored with it, you see. ^^;; I don't know, it's good, I know, but after playing it once, I know I won't play it again. But it's still a worthy purchase.

I don't play Strategy, unfortunately, my sister has Fire Emblem: Awakening and I had played them, I know it's good, but it's really not my thing. ^^;; I find myself enjoying Action-RPG and had my eyes set on 'Fantasy Life' if it ever comes out to the USA (If only it comes out, I won't have this dilemma right now). Hmmm, Etrian Odyssey I might get interested, it's dungeon-crawling, right? Although I never played any of the games before... owo

And no, I'm from Asia, which mean I follow America's. That's why I asked here, Mario and Luigi haven't come out, and I want games that I get a lot of bang out of my bucks.

@darkfenrir Well then you could dl the demo of EO4 as its the first part of the game. If you like it and purchase it all data will transfer over to the main game.

@OldMan-Tech There's a demo for it?! Although, I heard there's going to be another Etrian Odyssey game on North America soon? And okay, thank you. I'm still open for other suggestions, though

@darkfenrir, I would highly recommend DKCR3D as a game with a ton of replayability if you have not played it yet. I know exactly what you mean about Luigi's Mansion--it was great but the levels themselves were kind of a hassle to replay what with having to complete all of the objectives in each level each time you replay the level. DKCR3D is just bursting with replay value in comparison. I can't recommend it enough.

Feel free to add me!

@maxcriden >w<;; Unfortunately, I don't really like to play platformer. The only Mario game I ever played is the RPG series for example. :/ The last time I played platformer is for Yoshi's Island on GBA and I'm... just not good at it.

@darkfenrir, this is one of the best platformers ever! Maybe it would be a good chance to check out a new platformer since it's been a while for you? No pressure! You are just missing out on some really fun games.

Otherwise, how about Paper Mario Sticker Star? That is a fun and pretty decent length Mario RPG.

Edited to Add: Actually, if you have not played Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, that is a DS game so you would be able to play it on your 3DS, and it is extremely long as I recall. Also, have you D/L'd Zelda Oracle of Ages/Seasons yet?

@maxcriden Unfortunately, I can't spend money around like that, I need to buy games that I know I'll enjoy T__T Unfortunately, of course.

I'm pretty leery on Paper Mario actually, hearing how people bash it down and never playing one myself... ^^;; yeah.

@maxcriden: and yes, I have played it and it's one of the most enjoyable game I have played! ^_^ And no, I can't buy any pre-paid card, nor use Credit Card, v___v Sorry.

@darkfenrir, in your second post there, are you referring to Bowser's Inside Story? If so, have you played Partners in Time as well? That one is unfairly maligned and is a lot of fun, too.

I couldn't really get into Spirit Tracks or Phantom Hourglass but my wife really enjoyed them. Zelda OOT is a classic if you haven't played it. I do think Paper Mario Sticker Star was a lot of fun and sort of under appreciated. It's a pretty decent length, clever and good game. Kirby Mass Attack is another extremely fun, great game. I would also highly recommend the Layton series.

Edited to Add: I should also mention that while I love Kirby, I often find his games too easy. Mass Attack is very difficult in places and a lot of fun. It's a plaformer and I just remembered you said those aren't your favorite, but it's a very different one as you control up to 10 Kirby clones at once with the stylus.

@maxcriden yeah, I'm referring to BIS, and yes, I have played PiT, and I have played SuperStar Saga too, and they all are very enjoyable. ^u^ I sometimes got confused when people said they aren't, those two are awesome games, plain and simple.

And I have played both of those, although I haven't finished Spirit Tracks, I got stuck at one place and just... stop playing I guess. The problem with Zelda game is that you lose incentive the moment you finished the story, there's no more things to do, unless you like to do the treasure hunting and stuff. Hmmm... maybe I'll try my hand on Paper Mario if I see it cheap enough, although I didn't see the Kirby game anywhere. Professor Layton, played the first one and I barely able to finish it, puzzle is really not my forte. v___v

sorry, it just seems I keep deflecting those games that is recommended...

@darkfenrir, it's cool man, I just want to help you find a good game because there are so many great ones for the DS and 3DS. I do hope at some point you get to try DKCR3D because it really is a ton of fun. Kirby Mass Attack I'm surprised you can't find--did you check Gamestop's store locator for the new and used versions? Paper Mario really is satisfying and a lot of fun with a pretty good side quest. As a fan of the Mario and Luigi games I think you would potentially really dig it. I think it was just very different than a lot of people were expecting. FWIW I think I 100%'d it at about 20-23 hrs. I didn't see, did you say you've played Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D?

@maxcriden Thank you ^^

Yeah, I probably should pick it up when I saw it for cheap, or I can afford them, currently, I can only afford one, and I know I'll need to pick my favorite. And for Gamestop, unfortunately, I'm in Asia, we don't have gamestores like that ^^;; And it's hard to find DS games nowadays, I think I only saw 3DS games by now? The last DS game I saw was Solatorobo, and that's in Singapore, doubt there's any in my nation.

So I guess, Donkey Kong and Paper Mario for when I can afford them and them being cheap, I hope that time will be soon. ^w^ Hmmm, I guess I shall see what I do with Mario and Luigi after I tried the Etrian Odyssey Demo.

No, I only played Spirit Tracks and Phantom Hourglass, with me stuck on Spirit Tracks. ;(

I'm really picky with my games and I have nothing bad to say about Paper Mario. Try it, seriously! I think its only flaw was not being able to level up and there were no new characters. But that's just in my eyes, anyways. Every other aspect of that game was great!

AutumnShantel

darkfenrir

@AutumnShantel Ah, I see. I'll try to see everyone's recommendation and pick whichever I feel will I love the best.

@darkfenrir, my pleasure. Either way you are going to have some great games to look forward to. Also, regarding Zelda: Ocarina of Time, it is considered to be one of the best games of all times and features a long and expansive quest. And I think searching for treasure in the 3D Zeldas is much more satisfying than in the 2D ones.

And @AutumnShantel, thanks for backing me up!

Feel free to add me!

@maxcriden Indeed, from what I heard, they all are great games, and that actually make it harder to choose! After all, you want them all. ;u;

And anyhow, thank you everyone, for giving recommendations!

Smart idea.
I beat it in like two weeks, I couldn't put it down. When I was finished, I felt like I could play through it again right away but instead I gave it to my brother's friend because he seemed to really want it but couldn't afford it at the time... He also ended up loving it. lol
It reminded me a little of the Mario and Luigi series more than a Paper Mario game, though.

Edit: I didn't read too many of either of your posts, so sorry if I'm just kind of repeating what someone else is saying to you. I saw the words "paper mario" and felt the need to say how awesome it was.

@AutumnShantel That's awesome.

And I think I better stop overpopulating the posts, haha. XD

I cannot recommend Fire Emblem: Awakening enough. Seriously, I don't consider many games to be "must haves," but I seriously think you're missing out on something exceedingly special if you haven't played it.

Ha ha ha! What a story Mark!
