What one 3DS game should I play to change my mind about the 3DS?

#1DetroitDJ(Moderator)Posted 6/27/2013 12:41:23 PM
It's decently common knowledge that I haven't been satisfied with anything I've played on the 3DS. I'm going to a conference in a couple weeks, though, so I figured that's a good time to give the old boy a second chance. What one 3DS game should I play to change my mind about the 3DS?

For reference, I've played:
Kid Icarus Uprising
Luigis Mansion Dark Moon
Mario Kart 7
Mario Tennis Open
New Super Mario Bros. 2
Oregon Trail
Star Fox 64 3D
Super Mario 3D Land
Super Monkey Ball 3D
Theatrhythm

I've played Animal Crossing games in the past, but they just don't appeal to me. I also try not to play sequels without playing the earlier games in a franchise, but I make exceptions for big franchises sometimes. Ideally, I'd also like something that would keep me occupied for the whole week I'm gone, although I imagine I'll have limited time to actually play so that's not a tough requirement.

Eh, I've only played 2 of the top 10 according to GameRankings/Metacritic, 4 of the top 20. There's options, I'm sure.

I was thinking of that one. I've only tried one Fire Emblem game and I couldn't really get into it, but I can't remember why. I'd have to get over my mental block against playing sequels, though.

Then again, it's the same genre as my all-time favorite game, so hey.

Depends on what you like.

Etrian Odyssey IV, Devil Survivor Overclocked, and Fire Emblem: Awakening are all really good games. I wouldn't recommend Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance unless you've played the rest of the games first.

EDIT:

It's not really a sequel. It has some references to characters in previous games, but the storyline isn't directly connected to any other.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf

ESPECIALLY if you haven't played an AC game before. I got my 3DS a couple weeks ago with this game, and it's all i've wanted to play everyday

EDIT: Didn't read your last paragraph, but my suggestion still stands.
