Tales of the abyss is really good gameplay wise but I really dislike the characters. Their only saving grace is the fact that they aren't static and are fairly dynamic and deep.

Honestly, that's what makes them great characters in my opinion.

Not really arguing that, there's no doubt that they are good characters just not necessarily likable ones. I like Tear and Guy but the rest are either meh on the dislike meter or completely dislike.

(note that the first paragraph is simply pasted and edited from my similar post on Wii U Recommendations Thread)

I am a bit stuck on which Nintendo 3DS game to get (please note that this purchase is at least 3 months away), so I will provide you with a list below, and I ask that you tell me which one I should get first, second, third, etc. (note that some are some are Retail-ony and some are Retail or Download)...

  • Steel Diver
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
  • New Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Paper Mario: Sticker Star
  • Fire Emblem: Awakening
  • Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

Thank you for your assistance with choosing what game from the above list to buy next/ first. Happy Gaming!

I cannot speak for the majority of the games, so this is what I can give you.

1. Fire Emblem: Awakening - This is one of those games I cannot speak for fairly (only played the demo thus far) but it's basically unanimous that this is one of the best games to get. (LM:DM may fit between here and NSMB2)
2. New Super Mario Bros 2 - BIG WARNING. If you don't mind playing a DLC pack for the last few NSMB games, go ahead. It's Mario, say no more.
3. Ocarina of Time 3D - It's not the best remake since graphics aren't always polished, and Master Quest is full of cheap tricks, but it's still a great (if not immensely overrated and somewhat dated) game.
4. Paper Mario: Sticker Star - Not traditional in the least, that review was a complete effing lie. Minor warning.
5. Steel Diver - Niche game, but give it a try (it takes time to get into though). Good if you can find it cheap.
6. Pilotwings Resort - Decent game, but got old way too fast.
7. SF643D - Go get the game for $10 on VC. If you find it cheap it's great but at $40 it's a complete rip-off.

This is a signature.
Link goes here now.
Screw you.

  • New Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Paper Mario: Sticker Star
  • Fire Emblem: Awakening
  • Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

I figured this'd be the best place to ask. What is the cheapest price you can find a 3DS used at? I'm hoping there's a chance I could find one under $100.

Scavenging (and I mean f**kin SCAVENGING) Sears clearance bins around you may result in a Flame Red 3DS in your hand for $75 or even $60. I had no luck with that, but heard many a story on CheapAssGamer.

Your only quick option is eBay. Prices vary with condition.

Either that or a private sale I am afraid man. Even Gamestop sells used 3DS at like $130 so every where else is going to be about equal. Honestly even if you find one for less than $100 on eBay you are going to have to question if its a decent one at that since just checking now on eBay the only ones I see less than $100 are bids only and have several hours left on them so I am sure the price will go up.

If you dont mind me asking why are you looking for one under $100?

Because I'd prefer not to spend too much on one since I'm not a wealthy man and I'd like to have some video game budget left at all for the end of the year which is going to be amazing with all the games coming out. Plus the sooner I can get the gift the better.

On to Round Three!
Prior to this round, I removed all games that had 20 or less points. Then I was left with the following:

  • Fire Emblem: Awakening is in First place.
  • Paper Mario: Sticker Star is in Second place.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is in Third place.
  • Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon is in Fourth place.

I only need one more game eliminated to be done with this poll. Please, I just want to make sure I play THE BEST 3DS games. Thank you.

Thanks to @Retro_on_theGo My poll is now complete. The end results are:

Fire Emblem Awakening
Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon
The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D

No I don't have KI, but I've heard that the controls aren't lefty-friendly at all, is that true?

It's true.

I'm a leftie, and although I was able to complete the game on the standard difficulty, I'm not able to enjoy it on the higher difficulties, and don't spend as much time online as I'd like.

It's still a fun game however, and probably worth a pick up down the line.
