Best SEGA games for the 3DS?

#1EvonfirePosted 12/10/2012 11:38:57 AM
The title says it all, I like SEGA and have fond memories of my Game Gear (brick) from childhood. I want to support SEGA and buy their games on the 3DS. I'm starting with Shinobi and then where should I go from there? Any good SEGA 3DS games coming out in 2013?

The SEGA you fondly remember isn't the same SEGA as today. The development teams are completely difference and are more shifted to third party development versus internal development. (For example, Shinobi was developed by a third party, Griptonite Games, and only published by SEGA).

That being said, if you are only looking for SEGA-published games to play on your 3DS, check out:

3DS: Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure
DS: Thor: God of Thunder
DS: Phantasy Star Zero
DS: Infinite Space
DS: Aliens: Infestation
DS: Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing

Rhythm Thief.
Crush, but I played the PSP version.

Not much for upcoming, save for 3D Space Harrier and eventually a new Sonic.

Shinobi is the best one, Rhythm Thief would be the second in the queue. As for the upcoming games then Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is the most promising SEGA game on the 3DS, so far.

Thank you guys and especially Jorgen for explaining the changes SEGA has undergone since the Game Gear days. I wish Crazy Taxi was on the 3DS, I loved playing that game on Dreamcast. That being said, I will have to check out Rhythm thief and see if it's any good. I hope it's not like DDR, or that Final Fantasy Orchestra game.

Rhythm Thief is really frustrating at times tho, just a warning. The point system is kinda flawed.
At some point someone probably told you I'm a troll.
