Game suggestions for my girlfriend?

#1SailorSatournePosted 1/18/2013 5:50:51 AM
I'm buying her a 3DS, I'm trying to think of what to get her with it

She likes Pokemon, so I'm going to get her either Black or White 2, but I'd like to at least get her one 3DS game as well. (I feel like getting pokemon alone would be like buying someone a Playstation 2 and giving them a copy of FF7 to go with it. Great game, but kind of missing the point. >_>)

I know she's really into turn based RPGs and adventure games. She loved Dragon Quest IX, My World My Way, and the Phoenix Wright games. She also used to be big into Mabinogi a few years ago, though that's a PC game.

Any ideas? I don't really keep up with gaming these days unless I hear about it in passing, so I don't really know what's out there besides what I see on shelves.

There's pretty much zero RPGs out right now that are like DQIX, so you're kind of screwed there. I mean, errybody loves OoT, can't go wrong with that. If she liked PW, she might like 999 for regular DS, but getting her a 3DS without any 3DS games seems a little odd.

Maybe Devil Survivor: Overclocked? Or Tales of the Abyss, even though it's an ARPG, it's still pretty fun. And like the above poster said, you can't go wrong with OoT.

If she likes Final Fantasy she'll probably like Theatrhythm. There's also a good chance she'll like the Professor Layton games. They're puzzle-adventure games created by Level 5 (basically a big RPG developer). She likes Phoenix Wright, so she should give these a try.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

Resident Evil. If she doesn't like it dump her. Also dump her if her bmi is more than 12%.

Harvest moon new beginning.

Its basically a dating sim mixed with farmville.

999 would be great, then get her Virtue's Last Reward (the sequel) for the 3DS. I'd also recommend Devil Survivor: Overclocked.

She also might like Style Savvy: Trendsetters.

If that's too girly...

Tales of The Abyss is an RPG with Anime graphics, and Kingdom Hearts 3D would be good.

If she likes pick up 'n' plays and platformers, you can't beat SM3DL.

Also, OoT is a great all-around enjoyable game, and Kid Icarus Uprising might interest her with its fantastic combat and hilarious writing.
