Unfortunately, the worst ones seem to be the only one with demoes (The Strikeforce games), and those are the only ones I've played. I have heard that DW Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 are both good, from our own OlympicCho and from a user on another site. Probably the easiest to get into, too, since they're the base games in the series and they're the cheapest to get ahold of, last I checked. Warriors Orochi kinda requires knowing the characters from the series already.

Okay just let me tell you guys a secret... I never played Super Mario 3D Land. I've played it at a retailer but never actually owned it and got deep into the game. I heard it was great, but I also have my eye on Paper Mario Sticker Star. Should I buy 3D Land or Sticker Star? I've never actually liked a Paper Mario game better than a Super Mario game, but I want you guys's thoughts.

I think...That question would be easier to answer when Paper Mario comes out and there are people who have played the game. Especially since it looks like Sticker Star will either be great or just suck with its sticker mechanic. I've only played enough of 3D Land to know that I hate it, but that's because it's a 2D Mario in 3D, and I've always hated 2D Mario games.

Wait until Sticker Star comes out (or at least some people's thoughts and reviews do), then decide. If you want to know now, then by your comment that you've never liked a Paper Mario game more than a Super Mario one, buy Mario 3D Land.

Should I get Animal Crossing? A lot of you guys seem to like Animal crossing and it seems interesting.Can you explain to me Animal Crossing? Which game should I start with? Would you recommend it? Any information you have.

Im a big fan of Mario games :)

Animal Crossing is hard to explain, unfortunately. Even videos don't do it justice. As for the game I'd recommend, any of them will work, but the most refined is probably City Folk. There's also a 3DS game coming, but it may be a while and City Folk would be cheaper and therefore less of a risk to try.

I'll see if I can get Chrono-cross over here to explain it, he's better than I am at understanding Animal Crossing, and I know few who love that series more.

Animal Crossing is a boring waste of time. This is coming from someone who actually played one of the games in the series. Avoid all Animal Crossing games at all costs, and you can thank me later. I'm not sure why so many people love the series so much, but it's beyond overrated.

Depends. Really, Animal Crossing is a lot of things. It's a simulation game with no true objective/goal. You can upgrade your newly found house, decorate it anyway you want and just live in a virtual home away from home. You meet animal neighbors who do their best to be your best friend and you can actually develop relationships with them (to an extent). Really, it's whatever you want it to be with a pace you make.

And paying off your house and friends isn't the end. Seasons change due to your console's set date and time. Whatever time it is in real life, it's that time in Animal Crossing. It's October now, and guess what? It's October in Animal Crossing with colorful leafs, discolored grass and everything else that resembles the fall season (the atmosphere is awesome). Halloween is coming up too, so gather all the candy you can and collect the Spooky furniture set!

Fossil hunting, letter mailing, you can visit your friend's towns, bug catching, fishing, shirt customization, snowman building, and so much more! If you love Nintendo, in any way, you will love this series. It's easy to jump into and there's no opening cutscenes or backstory to memorize due to its immense storyline. None of that!

What game to start with? Well, if the 3DS entry was out, I'd say that but... it won't be for another 9 months. So that gives us three games to choose from: Animal Crossing, Animal Crossing Wild World and then, City Folk. City Folk is a no-no. The original on GameCube seems to be the only one I can whole-kindheartedly recommend without regret. It's dirt cheap, and has the most charm. Unless you can't find the original, and you own a 3DS, you should fall back on Wild World for the DS.

(I'd say more but I have to be somewhere, lol. Thank you Mickey for contacting me.)

Just for you.

Oh I see. This is like a game I played before "MySims" for the DS (Please don't ask why even bought that game because I don't know either XD) You make a character and just wander off to wherever and do whatever. This is obviously better than My Sims. In that game you can't really do much but in this game it seems like you have more control of the game.I actually kinda like these types of game so there's a good chance I will buy it. I think I will start out with the 3DS version. I can wait

So yeah, even though almost nothing that isn't soul-crushingly painful/horrifying seems to happen to anybody in these books, A Song of Fire and Ice is definitely my new favorite thing du jour; I can't put them down. The complex characters, the dark humor, the many overlapping plot threads, the political intrigue, the realism despite the fantasy setting - I love it all.

It's gonna suck having to wait years between installments just like everybody else once I finish the fifth book.

Which of the three DS Castlevania games should I get?

Dawn of Sorrow is my personal favorite of the three, but they're all comparable in quality and just as many people seem to favor Portrait of Ruin or Order of Ecclesia as do DoS, so you really can't go wrong with any of them. I'd recommend just buying whichever one is currently the cheapest.

All three. They're all excellent.
If you can just choose one, it depends on what you want. Dawn of Sorrow is probably the best in terms of level design. It's really fun, has a lot of content, and is well-paced. Order of Ecclesia is the hardest Castevania game to come out after Symphony of the Night, and it is quite rewarding. The combat system is also the best of the three. Portrait of Ruin is the least impressive of the three. The dual-character mechanic just wasn't that great or useful.

Personally, my favorite is Order of Ecclesia, but they're all great games.

Recommending Wild World over City Folk? Honestly, the fact that none of the holidays in Wild World are real life ones alone makes the game inferior imo. I say pick City Folk if you can't get your hands on a copy of the Gamecube Animal Crossing.

You'd be hard-pressed to find many better games than those five on any system, let alone on a weaker service like WiiWare.

But there are still very good (even great) WiiWare games available, like World of Goo and Cave Story, that are absolutely worth playing.

That's pretty much some of the best games ever made. ''Any good''? They are all masterpieces, and you should download and play them ASAP. Also, there are no WiiWare games that are better than those. Well, Cave Story might come close, but that's a rare exception. Let me put it to you this way, around 80% of VC games range from good to masterpieces, while only 20% of WiiWare are actually any good.
