I've got a week off work, which seems like a good opportunity to blitz through a good lengthy 3DS adventure. All of these look interesting to me, but I can't make a choice between them. So you choose for me!

Virtue's Last Reward
Fire Emblem Awakening
Bravely Default
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked
Entrian Odysset IV
Project X Zone

PLACE YOUR BETS NOW.

Dang man you picked all excellent games. I haven't played 3 of those yet but I would go with........Wow not an easy choice here....Overclocked by the narrowest of margins. Doubt my choice will win but deserves a vote!

@Raylax Virtue's Last Reward is excellent, especially for any fan of 999 though I think 999 was better story wise

My money's definitely on Bravely Default. Absolutely smashing game, that one is.

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

Anybody here play Code of Princess? I was thinking of picking it up since it's dropping in price. Usually anything Atlus touches is something I'd enjoy but I haven't heard much about it on this site.

im looking specifically for games only available on 3ds eshop. Here are some games I own so far: Super mario bros, mario kart, monster hunters 3 ultimate, Donkey kong country returns, Zelda a link between worlds, pokemon x.

I have played all the mega mans and thoroughly enjoyed them. I also like racing games, first person or 3rd person shoot em ups, rpg's, puzzle games, action.
I want to try something new.

If you like Mega man, Fracture Soul should be worth a look

So is there any good less obvious retail games for 3DS? Ones that can easily fly under the radar that where actually good?

I have about enough credit left after getting SMT IV, for a $19 game...any recommendations??

Also any thoughts on if "Code of Princess" will go on sale again? It seems Atlus is rolling through a game a week for a sale price. I have all the Etrian games and SMT IV...just need a few more.

Currently playing: Mario Kart 8, W101, Lego City, and MANY eshop games. :)

Speaking of flying under the radar lol, Ace Combat is really fun. Also not sure how under the radar these 2 are but Devil Survivor Overclocked and Ghost Recon Shadow Wars. Both are similar to Fire Emblem Awakening if you didn't know.

If anyone here is on fence with Mario & Luigi: Dream Team like I was... just go and spend your money, you won't regret.
IMHO it is much better than Super Mario 3D Land. Great, great game if you have any interest in RPG.

Why don't you ask me which leg I'd rather be shot in? It'd be an easier decision.

Aside from a bug or two, Virtue's Last Reward is a masterpiece. Although you'll get more out of it if you've already played 999. Either way, you'll not be left out of the loop The story is complex, dark, and something only a visual novel could tell adequately

If you HAVE played 999, then here's what to expect: a less 'tense' overall atmosphere, but greater narrative and thematic complexity. There is voice acting for almost all of the dialogue (if you're American, our version has an EXCELLENT English dub, in addition to the original Japanese audio), sprites have been replaced with 3D models, and instead of having to replay the game over and over, along with the same early puzzles, you get a kind of... flow chart for navigating the various narrative branches.

Of course, this is mostly a visual novel, and thus the only real gameplay in it is figuring out various locked room puzzles.

FE:A and EOIV are both superb RPGs. EOIV is extremely satisfying, but FE:A has the overall better presentation, with gorgeous cutscenes, beautiful music, and a ton of content.

But, if it only comes down to one, then VLR.

@CroRock
Glad to hear the vote of confidence for a game I'm still iffy about, but that's kind of apples and oranges, isn't it? How do you compare an RPG to a platformer?

Agreed. While its story is not so great, its definitely an awesome game. My favorite 3DS game of all time.

my 3ds friend code is 1461-7634-1658

creativity is the insane possibility.

Started playing Luigis Mansion 2 a couple days ago and gotta say it's really really good. Much better than i thought it would be. I never played the original so the experience was so "fresh" for me, something different.

The graphics are incredible for the 3ds, every room and area is so detailed and the 3D effect is superb. Music is good and gameplay is great also. It also has tons of small secrets and stuff to collect or find, which i love. If u are an explorer this is a perfect game for you.

I've actually had the game for a quite long time but haven't gotten to play it until now since my brother had it.

Bottom line is that LM2 is a must have on the 3ds. If you don't have it, get it now.

@Ralizah
I mentioned SM3DL because it got much higher review scores then Dream Team and while I quite like SM3DL, I found myself enjoying more with Dream Team. And while I just grabbed SM3DL when I bought 3ds, I was calculating with Dream Team for some time. Other games were on higher priority list. Man I was wrong. Probably just because of that
Luigi Mansion 2 is my next after Bravely Default... thanks for that @Guovssohas :S
