For a first 3DS game, should I get Fire Emblem or 3D Land?

Fire Emblem, easily. Not that 3D land isn't fantastic, but I imagine with your excitement over your new system, you're liable to finish it quickly.

Depends. Fire Emblem will keep you involved longer but if you like Mario its hard to pass on 3D Land.

Yeah, I heard 3D Land is short.

That's NSMB2. 3D Land has 16 worlds with like 7 levels each. Some of them are duplicated as time trial levels and stuff later but a good 80% of the levels are unique. It's a fun game.

I found 3D land fun but forgettable, Lent it from a friend, beat the non challenge stuff and never bothered to buy it or lend it again.

Fire Emblem I can't really judge because I can't get past chapter 3 (or 2 I forget which) although I'm playing on the highest difficulty and not a lot of time into it. The beginning suffers from all but one of your units being pretty much useless though >_>

Honestly I recommend Devil Survivor Overclocked instead (if you haven't played the DS version) plays similar to FE, but I found the combat to be more enjoyable and it's overall a fantastic game.

3d land is good, but it's very short and half of the game are just altered versions of previous levels.

fire Emblem is a much bigger, deeper and overall better experience.
Here's hoping that Chrom will do Aether correctly in SSB4...

3D Land is a good first game because it's short and easy to get in to. It was my first and made my system purchase worth it. But I bought it before Fire Emblem came out. Fire Emblem is good because it's lengthy and has a lot of content. It really depends on what you're looking for, something that's easy to pick up and play, or something that will keep you busy for a long time.
