So FE:Awakening and Kid Icarus are basically system sellers?

-Multiplats like RE:revelations don't count
-rereleased ports like snake eater 3ds don't count

But still, it might a be a good reason to buy a 3DS

Fire Emblem is the reason I bought the 3DS (mainly for the limited edition system)

A game can't rely on quality alone to be a system seller, and as such, I don't think Kid Icarus is a system seller. A game also has to have a powerful brand name. Mario Kart 7 and super mario 3d land were system sellers.

still skeptical if awakening will be anywhere good as Tactics Ogre LUCT, but mind as well give it a go since everyone likes awakening.

Those, plus:
Super Mario 3D Land
Mario Kart 7
and Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon

Good ports would include:
Ocarina of Time 3D
and Star Fox 64 3D
Currently playing: Pokemon Black 2, Sleeping Dogs (PS3), Banjo-Kazooie (360), Darksiders II (Wii U), & Need for Speed Most Wanted U.

The latter is theoretically true, simply because it should sell systems, but doesn't.

You really can't discount Revelations. The ONLY reason it is going multi-platform is BECAUSE it was so good. It didn't start multiplat and just happen to be good.
Sure sign you are a nerd: The beginning of AC/DCs "Thunderstruck" always makes you think of Lion-O swinging his sword around.

Add Luigi's Mansion to that. But yeah, the biggest system sellers so far have been Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7 and New Super Mario Bros 2. There's no escaping the Mario brand.
Had a Street Fighter signature for four years, but Crapcom doesn't deserve such recognition anymore.

Kid Icarus was one of the few titles to sell 1 million units. I believe its a system seller.
When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
