Hi, So I'm going to purchase a 3DS XL which seems to be the best one to me. What are some good games for it that you'd recommend? I haven't played any nintendo/handheld games in years but looking to get back into mario/pokemon and final fantasy so what would be the latest/best games for this?

Also would I be able to play DS games on a 3DS?

Cheers

Since you named these franchises specifically:

Mario:
Super Mario 3D Land
MAYBE New Super Mario Bros. 2 (mixed reviews).

Pokémon:
Pokémon Black/White 2
There's also a new Mystery Dungeon game coming out next year.

Final Fantasy:
Theatrhythm, but research first, since a huge amount of the game is DLC.
Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, if it ever gets released outside of Japan.
MAYBE Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance (mixed reviews).

DLC, online passes and the rise of casual budget gaming have ruined the video game industry.

In the clearing stands a boxer...and he carries the reminder of every glove that laid him down and cut him until he cried out.

Rhythm Thief is my favorite 3DS game by far

Okay with black/white 1+2, What are the differences? I understand there will be different pokemon in each but is there a list somewhere?

Does the 3DS have internal storage or is it still on the games? If so how big?
