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.

I would definitely go for Fire Emblem: Awakening, Ocarina of Time 3D, and Dark Moon.

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

I will now proceed to the Universal Recommendations Thread to decide between 3DS Games and Wii U Games.

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.

Does the Circle Pad Pro help at all though?

It's OK bro. Do you have either of the three 3DS games I mentioned earlier?

Yeah understandable, but yeah maybe around the holidays they might have a sale on one somewhere but as I said in my earlier reply, you best bet if for a private sale maybe even check out Craig's List.

Only OoT3D. If you haven't played Oot before, go for it. If you have played it before, I'd say go for an original 3DS title.

BTW, I'm a big Paper Mario fan from way back (loved playing the original on N64), and I loved Sticker Star. A lot of the hate for it is unfounded, IMO.

The only purpose of the Circle Pad Pro in that game is to make it lefty-adjustable. It takes getting used to, but when you do it's very quick and precise after practice.

What would you say is the absolute best 3DS game out right now?

My personal favorites are Tales of the Abyss & Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, but that's probably because I'm a JRPG fan.

As I don't know your preferences, I really couldn't say what would be best for you.

Out of Nintendo's own titles, I'd say Paper Mario: Sticker Star & The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D are the best I've played, but I also haven't had the chance to play stuff like Fire Emblem: Awakening or Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon yet, which are both supposed to be really good.
