I bought a 3DS because of the trade in deal Gamestop had but I realized that the 3DS has no games I am interested in. People have suggested Ocarina or StarFox but I already own those games on my Wii and I cant justify giving Nintendo another $40 each for games that came out 12 years ago.
Are there any other games people would recommend for a new 3ds owner?
What genres are you looking for? The 3DS-specific library isn't large, but there is some variety in a number of fields. Also, don't ignore DS games you might have looked-over since they still make them.
Shin Megami Devil Survivor Overclocked is new on the 3DS and is easily the best RPG/SRPG hybrid specifically running on 3DS, that is, unless you already have the DS version. It's in improved form (not so much for 3D, but larger size cart, voices, more content). Either way, a recommended license. And if you pick it up now, you will at least be content to know that when buying said game, you wont be playing into it and a real historic earthquake hitting making you freak out at the 4th-wall broken experience. That happened already on release day.
