So I currently got a $20 eshop card from an online friend and was deciding what to use it on. I'm deciding among:

Super Street Fighter IV
-I previously had a physical copy but traded in at a Gamestop a long time ago

Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater
-Seems nice (My younger brother does have a copy of the original PS2 & the HD Collection though I haven't dare tried them)

Resident Evil Revelation
-Enjoyed Project X Zone, knowing that Chris & Jill version came from this game

Senran Kagura Burst
-Why not

Rhythm Thief & Emperor's Treasure
-I enjoy rhythm games


If you have better games in mind, post them and explain your reasoning. Thank you in advance!

SSFIV is outdated and the online is pretty much dead.
MGS3 has a lower framerate on 3DS.
Revelations HD plays way better and has more meat to it.
Unless you really like beat-them-all and ecchi stuff, don't bother with SKB, even if it has an interesting story.
RT is kinda too short.

Do you like indies games?
Uh... A-Are you sure to interact with others?

This doesn't help your current predicament, but it's a dang shame you missed a 3DS humble bundle a year or so ago. $13 got you SF4, Rhythm Thief, Shantae, 3-4 other 3DS games, and maybe 3-4 Wii U games.

That being said, the only game on that list I'm a huge fan of is Rhythm Thief. I'm not even into rhythm games and I had a blast with. It had a fun little story focusing on French culture and all that junk that was interesting. The above poster is right though, the full game takes less than 10 hours, but you could probably milk a lot more out of it than that if you're really into rhythm stuff. MGS3 is always good, but you're better of playing the Collector's edition probably.

Have you ever tried Inti Creates games? Azure Striker, Mighty Gunvolt Burst, and Blaster Master Zero are all fantastic throw back games.

For what it's worth, if I had a New 3DS, I'd definitely blow the $20 on SNES virtual console games.

It varies depending on the indi games.

I have in fact played both Gunvolt games and Blaster Master ZERO, they are wonderful. I haven't tried Burst and I'm not sure if I should pick it up.

Not a part of your options but Ocarina of Time is an awesome game that's only for 20.

I own every game on your list, and RE: Revelations is easily the best investment of your $20.
The new GFAQs interface blows a$$!

I'd honestly invest in snes games if you have a n3ds.

Also @TC I think I remember your name from LBP on the vita. If that was you, your level design was great bro.
