I liked the second professor layton but have not yet beaten it nor played the other games yet. So do I need to play it to understand/explain things? Are there spoilers about the past games in this game? Also, would I like paper mario? It has the same price. Does it have platforming elements to it? What makes it fun? I have heard that it's easy, but if it is a fun game then good nor hard are not something to measure the game by. Also, I would get art academy, but I don't know if I would ever use it, as I find the 3ds is such a small surface to draw on. Is it good? What makes it better than/worth more than colours 3d? I would mainly just use it for drawing anyway, I think.

How much replayability does paper mario have? I know layton has lots because there are so many puzzles and downloadable puzzles, and with art academy, can the lessons actually help you get better at drawing?

I bought Paper Mario but it's a disappointment. Was considering Layton, but I play them once and never touch them again. They're both meh.

While I love both franchises, ...I think you'd be better off on holding for another game.

Have both games and like them a lot. While Layton is a bit more polished I enjoy Paper Mario more.
If possible try both before purchasing.
Never argue with an idiot. They just drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

I am bad at making decisions, and you guys are just making it harder. What are your thoughts on art academy?

Just get Layton. It's the vastly superior game.

Get Layton over Paper Mario. Paper Mario was a bit disappointing and got rather boring fast.

*Opinion driven post*

While both are good games I give the bid to Paper Mario. Much better and more engaging game play as well as much more replay value
Layton is good, but once done...done. Paper Mario has replay, more interaction, more lively sequences and a much more memorable cast of characters.
