Solid games I may not have heard about? Possibly buying a 3DS soon

#1HabefietPosted 6/13/2013 9:54:27 AM
Hi all

I might (finally) be getting a 3DS tomorrow or next week, and certainly intend to get one before the year is out.

Games I will certainly get as soon as possible:

Fire Emblem: Awakening
Super Mario 3D Land
Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (just played 999 this week and that's kinda forcing my hand RE: getting a 3DS because I loved it and want to play the sequel ASAP)

Games I am considering getting (would not buy all of these at purchase because $$$ but they're on my radar):

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
A Harvest Moon game (is there more than one--if so which is better)
Luigi's Mansion 2: Subtitle
Mario Kart 7
Scribblenauts whatever
Sonic Generations
Star Fox 64 3D
Tales of the Abyss

Big-name games idgaf about:

NSMB2
OoT

So basically two questions:

1. Of the games in the "considering" pile, are any of them particularly not worth it? I have interest in all of them so no need to try to spark my interest in one particularly, but if there are secretly kinda bad, let me know

2. Main question: What are some games that I don't have listed above that are excellent? I haven't been following 3DS news so well, so I'm guessing there are some solid other releases that I don't know a thing about. What are some lesser-known but quality titles?

Help is appreciated :D

tl;dr Please tell me good games for the 3DS that I might be unaware of that merit purchase

Scribblenauts isn't bad, but I think the PC version is better.

I don't see any Animal Crossing or Monster Hunter on your list. Both of them are fantastic games which I'd highly recommend if they sound interesting to you.

Consider:

Resident Evil: Revelations
Shinobi
Ace Combat

Don't know if you know or care but Project X Zone is coming out pretty soon and Shin Megami Tensei IV is in a month.Both seem pretty good to me.

I have Luigis mansion and DKCR3D,both are good.I would highley suggest Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D if you are halfway interested in a Zelda game and have not played the hell out of it already.It to me is the best looking 3DS game to date.
