What are the ten 3DS games that are most popular right now? Which ten titles do you think are most wanted by most 3DS owners?

#2 Posted by towny_ (115 posts) -

I can't answer this 100%, so i'm going to judge a lot of this from the demos i've played

  • Ocarina of Time
  • Fire Emblem
  • Weegees Mansion
  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • New Super Mario Bros 2
  • Mario Kart 7
  • Resident Evil
  • Super Street Fighter 4
  • Monster Hunter
  • Black 2 (not a 3DS game, but recent enough to be one)

I really love Fire Emblem! 

#4 Posted by Blabadon (27694 posts) -

1) Kid Icarus

2) Mario Kart 7 (from Download Play)

3) RE:R's demo

4) Rayman Origins' demo

...

Second-to-last) Super Mario 3D Land

Last) Ocarina of Time 3D

 

Not a huge fan of what I've played on the system so far.

Try playing the whole Revelations. And Fire Emblem seems like an awesome game, Dead or Alive is nice and I prefer it to SFIV, can't go wrong with NSMB2 or 3D Land.. Add some eshop games to that. There are some pretty sweet games dude..

Edit: Uuh, top ten! Could look somthing like:

1. Mario Kart 7
2. Ocarina of Time 3D
3. Mario 3D Land
4. NSMB2
5. Dead or Alive: D
6. Resident Evil: R
7. Zen Pinball
8. Pullblox
9. SSFIV
10. Mutant Mudds (still nice though)

Theatrhythm, Fire Emblem, RE: Mercenaries and Link's Awakening are some games I've been meaning to get.

For right now my list is:
  1. TheatRhythm: Final Fantasy
  2. Tales of the Abyss
  3. Super Mario 3D Land
  4. Luigi's Mansion 2
  5. Professor Layton & The Miracle Mask
  6. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
  7. Mario Kart 7
  8. Paper Mario: Sticker Star
  9. New Super Mario Bros. 2
  10. Star Fox 64 3D

Though these are also the only games I actually own for the system, I do think Fire Emblem: Awakening will make it into the top 3 when it releases here, and there are still quite a few games I want to pick up such as Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, so when I get around to it, my list could change quite quickly.

I was waiting on Revelation's official console confirmation, for now I'll just get it there (though I'll probably still get it for the 3DS for some co-op on the go). I'm planning on getting FE:A soon, especially with hearing all the great things about it. Don't really think I'm going to go for fighters on the 3DS unless they're really cheap, and I mean really cheap. NSMB2 doesn't seem too different from NSMB Wii or DS, which, while being great, is a series I don't really feel a "need" to buy. SM3DL... I actually managed to go wrong with that game. I've written paragraphs on how much I disliked it on other GS subforums, so I won't write too much here. I just found it gravely disappointing. But there's plenty of other games out right now I want to try, I just have small caveats against. The future looks great, with another Mario and Luigi RPG and Pokemon X and Y.
#8 Posted by Bubble_Man (3095 posts) -

Of the ones I've played, my favorites are Fire Emblem Awakening, Kid Icarus Uprising and RE Revelations. I suspect I'll also like Sould Hackers and SMT IV when they're released later this year.

I have been enjoying the games I have gotten though.

  • Fire Emblem: Awakening
  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
  • StarFox 64 3D (got it with the 3DS XL and Gates to Infinity promotion)

8. Street Figther IV: Whatever comes after this colon addition

Dead or Alive Dimensions

#27 Posted by mastertamagochi (222 posts) -

Im surprised no one mentioned Etrian Odyssey IV, altough i dont own it I've played the demo and it was a pretty solid and fun RPG.

#28 Posted by Bubble_Man (3095 posts) -

1. Fire Emblem

2. Soul hackers

3. Kid Icarus

4. Tales of The Abyss

5. Resident Evil Revelations

Those are the games I've played and liked so far. I expect that SMT4 will be pretty high up on the lest when it releases.

I don't own enough for 9th and 10th spots but out of all the eShop games I own these are the top 8 

#33 Posted by Nude_Dude (5371 posts) -
1. Ocarina of Time 3D 2. Super Mario 3D Land Yeah, I need to get some more games for my 3DS. I feel proud however for 100%ing both games (+Master Quest on zelda). :P
#34 Posted by Trinexxx (883 posts) -

For me (only owned a 3DS for about 6 months):

1. Mario Kart 7

2. Super Mario 3D Land

3. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

4. Resident Evil: Revelations

5. Street Fighter IV

 

Should I get Fire Emblem, Kid Icarus, or Luigi's Mansion next?  I'm leaning towards Fire Emblem because it seems a lot more different and has received high praise from everyone. 

#35 Posted by Optical_Order (5100 posts) -

Only owned my 3DS for a couple months so far and have only played a small amount of games, but out of what I've played:

1. Fire Emblem

2. Luigi's Mansion

3. 3D Land

4. Pushmo

5. Mario Kart 7 

#36 Posted by trugs26 (5748 posts) -

I actually own ten 3DS games (not including eShop) :P

So I'll just order them:

1. Super Mario 3D Land
2. Mario Kart 7
3. Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
4. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
5. Kid Icarus: Uprising 
6. Rigge Racer 3D
7. Resident Evil Revelations
8. Super Street Fighter 4 3D
9. Lego Pirates of the Caribean
10. Mario Tennis Open

I also have Pushmo, if I included it, it'd probably take number 5 and push KI down.

Note: RE: Revelations isn't fairly judged as I haven't played it much.

Ha, nice job man. I've 100%'ed Mario, but only half way through MQ in OoT.  

#38 Posted by gameofthering (10398 posts) -
