Must have games for the 3DS?

#1LokiHero2Posted 4/6/2013 11:14:31 AM(edited)
I am thinking about buying a 3DS XL, but I am not sure if there are enough good games out right now to warrant the purchase.

What are your favorite games that make buying the 3DS worth it?

thanks

It can be the best DS games too because I don't have a DS either.

Super Mario 3D Land

Off the top of my head.

I've had my 3DS since the XL launched in the US last August and have accrued a collection of 13 titles since that time, most of which were purchased this past fall/winter with the crazy Christmas sales.

However, other than perhaps Resident Evil Revelations and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor: Overclocked, I feel that the greatest and must-have titles for the system only came out in the past couple of months. Fire Emblem:Awakening, Etrian Odyssey IV, and Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon are all absolutely fantastic, GREAT values (play hours per dollar spent), and 100% new experiences (read: not ports). That isn't to say that Zelda, Mario Kart, the Mario titles, Final Fantasy: Theatrhythm (and others) are bad by any means, but I cannot say that they provided the same impact as the three aforementioned recent releases.

With upcoming releases like Shin Megami Tensei: Soul Hackers, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Mario & Luigi 4 (and others) in the next couple of months, an RPG enthusiast is going to feel right at home on the system.

Of course, this is an opinion-driven question (and I have, as such, provided an opinionated response), so take these words with a grain of salt.

Well, as far as must-haves, I guess Luigi's Mansion 2, Mario Kart, Super Mario 3D Land, and Fire Emblem. Personally, I'd also recommend Samurai Warriors, Dead or Alive, and Star Fox.
