Ok, so here's what I'm looking at for the next few months. I don't want to buy too many since eh, money and that, so I'm considering getting 2 out of these:

Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Fire Emblem: Awakening
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon
Luigi's Mansion 2
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
Code of Princess
Etrian Odyssey 4

I'm mostly looking for something with a decent online community, since I so rarely get to use my 3DS online. I mostly like RPG's, although I really don't like Fire Emblem so please tell me if you think it's the kind of game enjoyable even to a non-fan. If you want to suggest anything else as well, go ahead

oh btw I'm a PAL regioner, so none of these games besides Monster Hunter are actually out yet. I'm just planning, is all

Get Etrian Odyssey IV and Luigi's Mansion 2 If I were you (Excluding FE:A because you dont like it)

I also have some questions hmmm.....Should I get Tales of the Abyss, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, or Kid Icarus Uprising? I haven't played a KI game before, but have played a couple of the Tales of and Pkmn games...

I would say Kid Icarus: Uprising is the best, and if you're into achievements/multiplayer it'll last you over 100 hours. If not expect 9-12. My personal choice for the best 3DS game, but I have not played LM:DM, VLR or FE:A

Tales of the Abyss is a great RPG, but it's not the best port I've seen and the 3D effect is horrendous.

Can't speak for PMD

If you like Tales games, you'll love Tales of the Abyss. It has the best story in the series and heavily refined gameplay. I also quite liked the characters, though when was there a Tales game that didn't have good characters?

What do you think is the best Mario game that's playable on the 3ds (including DS titles)?

BIS is a good recommendation, but excluding DS games, I'd easily recommend Super Mario 3D Land. The most fun I've had playing a mario game since the Galaxy titles. It's also in my top 5 3DS games behind Uprising & MGS.

I'll admit, If I could only recommend 3DS Mario games, 3D Land would be my choice. I found it boring as heck, but that's just because I felt it was too straight-forward for a 3D Mario game. As a 2D Mario in 3D, it works, and I can see why others enjoyed it more than I did, seeing as I generally dislike most 2D Mario games.

Thanks guys. I'm unacquainted with Bower's Inside Story but will make sure to research it later! Right now, I'm undecided between NSMB 2 and 3D Land.

3D Land - Longer campaign, better 3D effect (hard to judge graphics), feels less like a rehash, more like the bridge between 2D and 3D Mario.
NSMB2 - Much, MUCH more replay value, includes multiplayer and DLC

Your choice.

I have completed both Mario 3D Land and NSMB2 and I strongly recommend 3D Land over New. Ironically New felt old and repetitive.

This. 3D Land is easily the better choice.

3D Land and NSMB2 were just good in my opinion. 3D Land while creative and is an extremely easy game apart from the final few special worlds and last level, and NSMB2 while also fun and a bit harder (not by much), is frankly very unmemorable to me due to it being very similar to the previous NSMB games. While coin rush is a plus, you can easily find the infinite coin exploits. If I had to choose one, it would be 3D Land, but there are still many better games out there for the 3DS.

3D Land is an acceptable choice. Might be worth getting to see the 3D get some real good use.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

I found 3D Land boring as well. It just didn't have the same wow factor 64, Sunshine, or Galaxy had.

I might be the minority here but I like NSMB2 over SM3DL but for one thing I never played any other NSMB game other than the Wii one so I am not as bored with that series as others and also I prefer my Mario games 2D. Still 3DLand is a good game I just found it easier than that NSMB2 and shorter as well.

I honestly find the NSMB games stale compared to the older 2D Mario games; particularly Super Mario Bros. 3. I feel like the new games just lack the imagination that the older ones did both in gameplay and in visuals.

If you want a 3DS (or DS) Mario platformer, definitely go for 3D Land.
Ever since Super Mario 64, 3D has been the way to go for Mario platformers.
The NSMB games are just so boring in comparison.

3D land was too easy. not played NSMB 2 yet but I bet its more difficult. Looking forward to the DK country returns port ! be interesting to see how the graphics compare to the wii
