I just picked up an XL (i love it btw) and I wanted to know the general rated games for the system. I have mario 3D land, mario kart, resident evil R, zelda and tales of the abyss.

What am i missing?

5 games for a just-bought system is probably overkill lol.

Paper Mario is a lot of fun, and Fire Emblem is coming out on... Feb 4th? Sometime in this next week.

There are several demos on the eShop too. You should definitely check out the demos for "The Denpa Men" and "Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy."

I got mine Tuesday and I bought NSMB2, Theatrhytm Final Fantasy, and yesterday Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time. Mario was pretty short though.

Kid Icarus: Uprising is generally considered one of the top 3DS games (it's definitely my favorite original game for the system).

If you're a fan of Final Fantasy and/or rhythm games, Theatrhythm is awesome.

If you like KH, then definitely get Kingdom Hearts 3D.

Also get Kid Icarus: Uprising, New Super Mario Bros. 2, Shinobi, and other games that have been recommended so far.

Also Fire Emblem: Awakening comes out the 4th next week, and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon March 24, look forward to those as well. And yeah, as was said above, check out the demos on the eshop, and look into the eshop games/virtual console as well.

You are missing Virtue's Last Reward. It's one of the very best games on the system.

I can't properly describe the game without it sounding boring/unappealing, so I'm just gonna link the review page and let that do the work for me. Take a quick look through these:


Two things you should know:

1) Play it's predecessor, 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors, first; it's essential to the story of VLR. It's a DS game, but due to it's artstyle it hasn't aged at all.

2) Do not save in the PEC room, it can wipe your save file. To be safe, don't save in puzzle rooms at all, only main warehouses.
Baseless prediction as of 01/04/13 : the next Xbox will be called the Xbox On.

The save corruption issue was the main reason why I decided to get the PSVita version of Zero Escape instead. I know almost all of you won't have the luxury of choosing between either version, but the 3DS version still works great, from what I hear.
