I'm looking for some kind of first-person game...
Lately I've been craving a good first-person style game. Shooters are okay, but I'd prefer an RPG/adventure. I played a bit of the first Etrian Odyssey back when I worked at Gamecrazy, and kind of enjoyed it, but it sold before I could buy it. The Doom RPG was so much fun, I played it til my phone broke! I know a new Etrian Odyssey is in the works, and I may get it, but I need something NOW!
I'd like something with a good sense of exploration, preferably with RPG elements. Puzzle-solving(Shadowgate style) would be a definite plus! DS, 3DS, or E-shop, I'm not picky.
And don't say Etrian Odyssey, as I already know I'll like that one...

In this generation? Good luck. FP Shooters are all you get nowadays... >.>
I hate fanboys, but VITA fanboys are the most obnoxious of the bunch
Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey to DS (first person dungeon crawler)
Shin Megami Tensei IV for 3DS(in the future)
Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor 1 and 2 have FP battles
the DS CoD(meh I didn't like them that much but..)
Phoenix Wright games and 999 for DS.
Virtue's Last Reward for 3DS. There's also another Phoenix Wright game coming to 3DS soon.
I will do a suggestion on the eShop side
Buy Picdun for DSiWare. It's a first-person dungeon crawl action-RPG (as in you use your stylus to actually do your attack in real-time). with some hardcore puzzle later on if you want to complete everything.
Else, the Sword of Hope II for the Game Boy VC can be seen as "first-person", like Myst was in first person (meaning you only see the pictures of where you are and you move around with the four direction: North-South-East-West). Though since it's not "real" first-person like Picdun, I don't know if that count. But since you named Shadowgate, and it's pretty a Shadowgate game on the Game Boy, I thought you might like it.
I think there is a game out for 3DS that is a FP RPG but it's Japan-only.
Labyrinth no Kanata.
I doubt it will ever be released in the west.
Want to make the boards a better place?
REPORT bad posts and topics so the moderators can do something about it.
Metroid Prime (it's an adventure game, but your main weapon in an arm cannon)
Mirrors Edge (platformer but you can use some guns)
Really, I can't think of many that aren't just standard shooters.... None on the 3DS though lol

For the 3ds you won't find much. The only thing I can think of is Ocarina of Time because of the gyro capabilities. It's not really first person though.
There's The Dark Spire, Orcs & Elves, and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey for the DS
