So, I got my 3DS and need some solid RPG's. I have played most of the good DS and want something on this system just to be a cooler person. I know there is the Tals game (which i am highly considering having never played a tales game) and SMT Devil Survivor but I played that the first time around and although I enjoyed it I assume there are better games to play instead.

Also what can I expect RPG wise for 2013? Besides Pokemon X and Y :cool:

Well I would say Paper Mario Sticker Star. That game is very enjoyable. :)

For me Tales Of The Abyss is the best on the system right now.

the best rpg out is a downloadable game THE "DENPA" MEN: They Came By Wave its only 10$ and it has a lot of content and its a great old school turn based rpg, devil survivor is great game buts its a very lazy port, i haven't had a chance to play unchained blades or crimson shroud but i plan to at one point, as for best coming out i think its ether fire emblem they are always great games or Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers atlus always makes great games and this is the first time that soul hackers will be coming out of japan.

I am probably like 7ish hours into ToA and so far I am not enjoying it as much as ToS and ToV. I also recently got Paper Mario Sticker Star, so I will try that out soon. THe best will be Bravely Default I think.

How is Devil Survivor a lazy port? Asking 'cause I'm very interested in buying it. From what I read it sounds excellent.

How was Code of Princess? I enjoy atlus games enough to be interested but havent heard many good things.

Tales of Abyss, Devil Survivor : Overclocked, and Kingdom Hearts. The new Pokemon is technically an RPG.

sadly atlus just took the ds version of the game added in one more day to the story to give a few more hours of gameplay but without changing how the game is set up there is no 3d in it besides when fusing demons together, but its still a great game if you haven't played the ds version and it can be cheap out there.

The higher res and voice acting make it better. Overclocked is the way to go.

It's okay but the framerate drops are aggravating and it's practically unplayable online.

Bravely Default is the top one, but is Japan only

Tales of the Abyss and Paper Mario are pretty awesome. Devil Survivor Overclocked I assume is great, but I've only played the original on the DS. Pokemon X/Y, Fire Emblem, and the new Shin Megami Tensei should all be quite stellar as well.

#16 Posted by Dogborn (35 posts) -

I think I am gonna go with Tales. I have Graces f I need to play too but hey maybe 2 Tales game will be good enough.

#17 Posted by wraith-squad66 (1368 posts) -

you can't go wrong with Devil Survivor Overclocked in my opinion... that game is just awesome. I also really enjoyed KH 3D but then again i am a KH fanboy so don't trust me. Code of Princess was entertaining but i felt like it got boring quickly, which isnt good for a game with major RPG elements. I've just recently started Paper Mario and i can tell its going to be a blast. :)

Eh I can deal with that since I never played the game before and it has full voice acting which is always nice.

Fire Emblem Awakening is coming out this February.

But I would also recommand Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, Paper Mario Sticker Star, & Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time.

Was just about to mention these two. Pre-ordered them today and hopefully will get there early enough both days to get the promotional art books :D.

Pokemon look to be updating their game and it looks like a decent update! Changing the whole dynamic by making it really 3d
