@Dogorilla, @Late I do like puzzle games when in the right mindset, and I really am intrigued by the game's mechanics. The mentioned difficulty with some later puzzles makes me think I won't be 100%ing the game...at least not right away lol. I don't recall why I passed it up back then....I was in college at the time, so it might've been my cash situation.

Thanks for the feedback! The more I read/watch about it, the more I like. I think I will be redeeming this discount. Can't complain about losing 50 platinum coins! (They usually expire anyway)

Hi, I've been gaming since the 80s. I have been collecting games since the early 2000s including NES, SNES, Genesis, Playstation 1, N64, Dreamcast, Game Boy Advance, etc...

...but I skipped on the DS and 3DS until now.

I just ordered a refurbished 2ds (flat) from Nintendo (hey they're only $50 right now) and I'm excited to dive into a library I know very little about.

Here are a few of my favorite games Castlevania (2d series), Metroid (series), Super Mario World, Street Fighter 2, Shadow of the Colossus, Quake (series), Tetris, Metal Gear Solid (series), Tony Hawk Pro Skater (series) Skate (series), Tecmo Super Bowl, Shinobi (series), Turtles in Time, Wipeout (series), Bushido Blade, Half Life 2, Titanfall 2, Dark Souls (series), Far Cry 3, The Witcher 3

What would you recommend?

@f0rmless The 3ds Shinobi remake is good. In terms of Castlevania and Metroid I'd say Shantae and the Pirates Curse which is a great metroidvania. Also Xeodrifter, and Shovel Knight.

I've got to give a shout to Zelda Ocarina of time 3d since it is one of the biggest action adventure games on the system, and if you like Ocarina and finish it Majora's Mask is it's sequel and is also top quality.

In terms of exclusives there's loads of great rpgs if you're into them.

Virtue’s Last Reward is just £3.99 on the UK eShop at the moment - I picked it up a few days ago. Haven’t played 999 yet, though, so I’m going to start with that one - eventually.

What's the most accessible/best Shin Megami Tensei game on 3ds? Ive heard good things about this series for ages now.

@BongoBongo123 I have been where you are now, and can pretty confidently say Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse. That’s what most people recommended to me. For an SMT title, it has a solid difficulty curve, with no major spikes, and features some of the best gameplay in the series. The cast of characters is a bit goofy, but that makes it feel less overbearing. I beat it just a few weeks ago, and had a blast. One of the best games I’ve played all year.

@Krull Yeah it looks really cool and has dark vibes. Definitely will check it out at some point.

The 3DS has the best turn-based RPG of all time: Dragon Quest VIII.

It also has the best action RPG of all time: Zelda Ocarina of Time.

You could certainly make an argument for Dragon Quest XI and Zelda Breath of the Wild, but it would be a close call.

More 3DS must-haves are Super Mario 3D Land, New Super Mario Bros 2, Rayman 3D, Rayman Origins and Donkey Kong Country Returns.

I'm thinking of getting Etrian Odyssey V or Nexus. Any recommendations? I was a big fan of IV.

I got a $25 Gamestop gift card yesterday, and wanted to spend it on either DKC Returns 3D, or Pokemon Sun. I've played a good amount of platformers, but the only RPG I've ever played was Mario and Luigi: Dream Team (and only the first half-ish). Which do you guys prefer?

An online friend has got me very interested in the Etrian Odyssey series. Any recommendations on where to start for a newcomer? Preferably on the 3DS as the DS games are a little pricey even secondhand. The very first game isn't too badly priced used, but I've read that it isn't a good starting point. I'm leaning towards one or both of the Untold entries, though I've been told either IV or V are decent entry points too. Any thoughts or recommendations? I'm hoping to pick up at least a couple of them physical before prices spike way beyond my comfort range.

I also realize mapping using the touch screen is a big part of these games, but is there a way to draw in the maps without using it? Like with button controls? That won't make or break whether or not I dive into the series, but I baby my touch screens and try to use them as little as possible. Younger kid me wasn't so great with their original phat DS.

You really don’t need to play 999 first. VLR has an engaging plot that stands on its own. The 999 Wiki has a plot summary that should be enough. VLR is by far the best in the series and I’d jump on that one at that price.

The PSVR is the best VR system on the market today.

Should I buy Terraria for the 3DS? I have hard that the frame rate is not that good on the Old 3DS (which is the only one I have).

Anybody got some good RPG suggestions?

@WaterPhish The Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem games are my personal favourites. Radiant Historia, Mario & Luigi and Fantasy Life are worth a look too.

@Tyranexx this may be 2 months too late but Etrian Odyssey IV was the one that got me hooked. I'm playing through Untold 1 right now and it's good too. As for the map controls, only touchscreen unfortunately. I think in most of the games it fills out the paths your character has taken and you add walls, icons, and notes.

@WaterPhish Etrian Odyssey and Dragon Quest have some fantastic 3DS entries.

@Losermagnet I've since picked up Untold 1 (Haven't played it yet) and might pull the trigger on EOU2 soon as well. I've certainly also been considering IV as it's more of a "pure" experience, though with current physical prices I might grab that one digitally in the future. As for the touch screen controls, I can live with using them lol. Thanks for the feedback!

@Tyranexx Cool. Hope you like it 😁. Apologies if you're already aware, but Untold does have a classic mode in case you want to play the game in an original way. That's what I did. I get more of a kick making my own guild than playing with canon characters.
