Topic: Favorite 3DS Game!

I'd say Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. I'm a big fan of ALTTP and ALBW was amazing to me.
Love the visuals, the soundtrack is incredible, it has great dungeons... It's short for a Zelda game, but it doesn't have any filler I can think of.

I'm a big fan of adventure games and Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice is my favorite one on the system. Virtue's Last Reward is also worth mentioning.

In terms of platformers, Kirby: Planet Robobot is my number one. The mecha gameplay is really fun, I love being able to destroy cars in the city level (which is a new setting for Kirby titles). The soundtrack is really fitting for the futuristic theme of the game.

@Vinny I still haven't played Kirby: Planet Robobot, but I really, really need to!

@SlimFreakinFast It's a great game, I highly recommend it. The mecha mechanic is very fun and refreshing. People were complaining about games like Kirby's Return to Dreamland being too 'vanilla' and Robobot brought something different to the series.
It's also notable how it came out pretty late into the 3DS's lifecycle (2016)!

Impossible to chose just 1. A Link Between Worlds, Ocarina 3D, Mario 3D Land and Fire Emblem Awakening are all console-selling games imo.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

@Vinny 2016 is when I first came into the 3DS scene, so that works for me! XD

@Dezzy you're definitely right with that! I've loved Fire Emblem since the GBA, but Awakening is just marvelous! I'm excited to see the one for Switch, but Awakening is just TOPS.

History will look back at 2016 as the early years of the 3DS.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

@gcunit with all of the new games and ports coming to 3DS, it might as well be! I really dig the 3DS and I'm kinda sad that I jumped in so late in its lifespan

Elite Beat Agents. Sure, it’s a DS game, but I think it still counts. If it doesn’t, Luigi’s Mansion 2

@SlimFreakinFast My personal top five (sorry, can't just name one) would look something like this:

In no particular order, by the way...

  • Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars - seriously: if you're into turn-based strategy games, you NEED to get this.
  • Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate - this game was pre-installed on my 3DS XL when I got it, but I've really grown to like this game.
  • Fire Emblem Awakenings - I've got practically every game in this series, so getting this was a no-brainer for me, and its great.
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds - agreed with everything @Vinny said about it. A must-have.
  • Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. - seriously underrated/overlooked turn-based strategy game, with a really great and imaginative story, and a lot of variety in weapons, levels and items.

Meanwhile, as I was making up this list, and looking up the games, I came up with SO much more titles, that I realized that even I myself have been neglecting a lot of the great games that this system has, but unfortunately, the time that I used to spend with playing games, has been steadily shrinking, simply because I have other priorities, that take precedence over hobbies.

But regardless of my personal situation, here is the best of the rest, sort of like a honorable mentions list, although that would be selling most of these games short...

Might even give you some new ideas/titles to try out or look into...
(Please do take note that it is of course my personal opinion/taste. Realistically, I don't expect everyone to agree with it)

So, strap in and hold on to your hat, 'cause here we go:

All Mario games (Kart, 3D World, Tennis, Golf, platformers), the N64 remakes (The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time and Star Fox 64) Hyrule Warriors Legends, Super Smash Bros, Yoshi's Woolly World, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3DS, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Monster Hunter Generations, Monster Hunter Stories, Shantae & The Pirate's Curse, Bravely Default, Bravely Second, Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, Pokemon Sun/Moon, Etrian Odyssey Untold, Etrian Odyssey 4, Project X Zone, Rayman Origins, Dead or Alive Dimensions, Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater, Sonic Lost World, Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed, Resident Evil Generations, Castlevania: Mirror of Fate, Heroes of Ruin, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward, Stella Glow, most of the LEGO games, Steel Diver: Sub Wars, IronFall Invasion, practically all of Shin'en's games (Nano Assault Ex, Fun! Fun! MiniGolf Touch, Art of Balance, Jett Rocket II), Super Street Fighter IV, Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker.

Phew! I guess that is all of them. I played quite a few more, but even though I personally enjoyed them, I wouldn't recommend them, so I'll leave these out.

@SlimFreakinFast Wait, if we're including DS games, then I'd say Dragon Quest IX by a considerable margin.

Mario Maker 2: JN2-5GV-VTF

Most of the 3DS games that have been mentioned so far are what I would consider almost essential. The DS/3DS family is tied with the GBA as my favorite game library.

Monster Hunter Stories is one of the the most beautiful, fun games I have played... in general. I have 70+ games on the 3DS and nothing comes close to the level of enjoyment I had with that game, and as a long time Pokemon fan... it destroyed every pokemon entry. The only part where Pokemon triumphs over it is in multiplayer and that's because they had many years to make quite a complex and fun battle system.Still, Stories pvp is also quite good and more fun... it's just that it's not as meaty, but again, Pokemon had several years and this is just the first etry (and unfortunately it's also probably the last one).

This game is one of those where you have to stop for a moment and simply admire the view. Here you actually see creatures living in the natural world, and despite having silent character, the great work done with animations make it feel quite lively and with a personality ( I recommend playing without a helmet during the story because of this) and the bond you make with your creatures feels more authentic than in Pokemon games. Also, the ability to customize your monsters makes the experience even more unique and it offers many hours of content with a challenging post game.

Oh, and here you actually ride your creatures. It's great to finally be able to ride a dragon while exploring the world looking for new creatures and items.

There's so many great games on the 3DS, and while I could easily recommend at least 50 games, I'll try to narrow it down to a diverse top 6. I'm also going to avoid any DS games because that would make this narrow list even harder to choose.

1. Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
2. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadow of Valentia
3. Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology
4. Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
5. Metroid: Samus Returns
6. Rune Factory 4

@baller478 So, what of it?
As I clearly stated in that comment:

(Please do take note that it is of course my personal opinion/taste. Realistically, I don't expect everyone to agree with it)

To me, Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon was just more of the same, and I already own the original game on the GameCube, so it wasn't interesting enough for me to get it on the 3DS.

@ThanosReXXX I definitely can't pick JUST ONE either. I would have to REALLYYY rack my brain to figure that out. Good stuff!

@roy130390 I bought it on sale once and I'm not very far, but I'll have to keep going!

@Tyranexx Definitely! The GBA had a TON of good games, like Wario Land 4, the Golden Sun series, the Pokemon games, Summon Night, Metabots, the SNES ports, and I could just keep going on for days about all of the GBA games that I love.

I could also do the same for DS and 3DS. The DS has all of those Dragon Quest remakes, Elite Beat Agents, Metroid Prime Hunters, and a billion more.

On the 3DS, I've thoroughly enjoyed the other Dragon Quest remakes, Rhythm Heaven Megamix, Gunman Clive 1 and 2, Persona Q, Etrian Odyssey, Xenoblade Chronicles, and a big, huge time-waster that I absolutely love is POCKET CARD JOCKEY. Seriously. Check. It. Out.
