Is it worth buying the 3DS?

#1theofficefan99Posted 11/22/2012 5:45:21 PM
My main reasons for buying the 3DS are because I want to play Chrono Trigger and I want my first experience with it (well, I played it once before, but on an emulator in my cousin's house for about an hour) to be with the best version (so I can play Chrono Cross right afterwards), and because of Paper Mario. These are the games I'm interested for the DS and PSP:

-Chrono Trigger
-Radiant Historia
-Dragon Quest IV
-Dragon Quest V
-Dragon Quest VI
-Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time
-Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story
-Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates
-Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes in Time
-Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
-Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings
-Final Fantasy Tactics A2
-Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume
-Dragon Quest IX
-Suikoden Tierkreis
-The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks

and for the 3DS...
-The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
-Paper Mario: Sticker Star
-Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance
-Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy
-Super Mario 3D Land
-Kid Icarus: Uprising
-New Super Mario Bros. 2 (well... not really. It's too lazy for me to be truly interested in it)

And that's about all I'm interested in, in terms of the 3DS.

As you can see, I'm a big RPG nut. These are games that just look interesting to me, but I don't really know if any of them are truly fantastic. Plus, I don't know of any great RPG's coming out for the 3DS aside from Bravely Default and Shin Megami Tensei IV.

If this is worth it, can anyone tell me the 4-5 games that I should start out with?

I'll probably have $300-$400 to spend for Christmas, and I want to make sure I make good choices because I haven't bought a single game since January. So, basically, it's the 3DS with some 3DS and DS games along with a few older games, or use the $300-400 for a bunch of older games.

So, what should I do?

Thanks, guys!

To me it's worth it for SMTIV alone.

I'm too lazy to list all the great 3ds games for you, sorry. But I'll just cut short and say; yes.

Hmmm, you listed so many games you'd want for it and you're STILL questioning about whether or not you want it?
