I just got a 3DS and was wondering if you guys could suggest any good 3DS games you enjoyed. I already have my eye on KH: DDD and Zero's Escape: Virtue's Last Reward.

Thanks, appreciate the help

Ah, just the person to help. Being something of an expert on all things Nintendo, I think I can make a few suggestions.

Now, I will say that both Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward are both very good titles for the Nintendo 3DS. You'll have a lot of fun with those two games. As for other games though, there are many titles that are worth picking up. I'll give you six of my personal favorite titles.

First, and my personal choice for a Nintendo 3DS game if you had to choose one, is Kid Icarus: Uprising. It's easily one of the best titles available for the system, and it's also one of the most beautiful looking games. I myself have spent over 120 hours on the game, and I still haven't finished everything. One thing that makes Kid Icarus: Uprising so cool is that you can choose how hard the game is. If you want a really hard game, sure. Wanna just plow through the enemies without any problem? You can do that to. There are over 100 weapons in the game to play with, and no two weapons will ever be the same. On top of that, there's an addicting multiplayer mode that can be played both locally and online that's often viewed as actually being funner than the main game.

Second, for a new twist on an old classic is Super Mario 3D Land. A 3D Super Mario adventure that feels like a 2D Mario game, Super Mario 3D Land will see you donning the Tanooki suit once more in order to rescue Princess Peach. You'll find a game that can be a walk in the park at times, while other times you'll want to rip your hair out over it. Not only that, but the game also feels very much like the Super Mario Galaxy games for the Nintendo Wii, and considering that it was developed by some of the same team, that's no surprise. Super Mario 3D Land is a game that everyone can pick up and enjoy.

Next up, Mario Kart 7. You can't have a Nintendo system without a Mario Kart game. Mario Kart 7 allows you to not only race through the land, but for the first time ever, dive under water and soar through the air. You can also customize your kart, choosing the body, tires, and hang glider. You'll find 16 brand new tracks, as well as 16 fan favorite tracks from Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Mario Kart DS, and Mario Kart Wii, including Kalamari Desert, Maple Treeway, and Mario Circuit 2. You'll also find 6 battle tracks with the Coin Runners and Balloon Battle game modes available, featuring 3 new tracks and 3 retro tracks. Like Kid Icarus: Uprising, Mario Kart 7 allows users to play online with players from around the world, but unlike Kid Icarus: Uprising, players can also play locally with friends of theirs who don't have copies of the game using the 3DS Download Play feature.

Do you like animals? How about farming? Well, then you should pick up Harvest Moon 3D: A New Beginning. Like most Harvest Moon games in the past, you'll have to run your own farm. Grow vegetables, raise animals like chickens and cows, go fishing, make friends with locals, perhaps even find that special someone to settle down with. For the first time ever though, you'll be able to customize almost everything about you and your farm. From where your house is located to the clothes that you wear, Harvest Moon always will have something for you to do.

Number five? New Super Mario Bros. 2. Where as Super Mario 3D Land is a 3D game that plays like a 2D Mario game, New Super Mario Bros. 2 actually is a 2D game. Like always, you'll have to travel through the Mushroom Kingdom in order to rescue Peach from Bowser and his Koopalings. Unlike all of the games before though, you'll also have another goal to complete...collect one million gold coins. Why? Well, why not? You'll find that levels are packed with coins, familiar enemies and power-ups, and you'll also be able to harness the awesome power of the all new Gold Flower, which turns Mario into Gold Mario. Not only that, but New Super Mario Bros. 2 features the all-new Coin Rush game mode, in which, as you play through a set of three levels, you're given a set amount of time in order to collect as many coins as you can before the timer runs out. You'll be able to pick up timers as you play through levels in Coin Rush mode so that you can collect more coins, but that timer is always ticking. To add to the fun, there are special Coin Rush level packs that you can purchase through New Super Mario Bros. 2. These level packs each feature three all new levels not found in the main game, and each has a special theme, including a special "Gold Classics" pack that is based off of levels from Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 3. Until January 31 2013, the Gold Classics level pack is available for download completely free of charge. Other levels packs can be downloaded for a small fee.

Finally, what is a Nintendo system without a true classic game. If you own a Nintendo 3DS, there is no reason why you shouldn't pick up The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time 3D. The enhanced port of the Nintendo 64 classic, you can now carry this legendary tale in your pocket and play it where ever you may be. If you've played the original Nintendo 64 version, you'll be amazed at how the game looks in 3D, and if you've never played the original Nintendo 64 release, you'll fall in love with this modern classic. From the Deku Tree to Ganon's Castle, the entire game is here for you to enjoy. In addition, once you complete the game, you'll unlock The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time 3D-Master Quest, a mirrored, much harder version of The Ocarina of Time.

Well, that should about do it for now. I hope I helped give you some ideas. If you would like more information, or additional suggestions for games, feel free to send me a PM. I'll tell you what ever you would like to know and help you find the games that are just right for you.

Also, just as a quick little note for you, in most regions of the world, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, New Super Mario Bros. 2, and The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time 3D are available for download in the Nintendo 3DS system's Nintendo eShop, while Harvest Moon 3D: A New Beginning is available for download currently only in the North American Nintendo eShop. If you might not like the idea of having to keep switching games out, you can download them directly to the SD Card in your Nintendo 3DS system. If you're going to be purchasing retail games as digital downloads though, you might want to get a bigger SD Card. The Nintendo 3DS currently officially supports SDHC Cards up to 32 GB in size, and that amount will most likely grow over time.

Thanks for responding!
So many games I'd love to have, but not enough money

How long is both KH and Zero Escape? Do you think I'll get my money's worth in terms of time?

I've heard of Kid Icarus, but I never really looked into it. I like rpgs-- is this an rpg comparable to, say, The Legend of Hereos by Falcom?
But dang, 120 sounds crazy. The only game I dumped a few hundred hours into was Pokemon, because the game literally never ends (btw, Pokemon White 2 is also on my list of games to get! : D)

Although I don't much care for Mario, I actually have Super Mario 3D Land I made sure to get the 3DS bundle with it, cause it costs the exact same for a new 3DS without the game. I plan on trying this game out today!
I'd only get Mario Kart if it was for a console that isn't Wii/Wii U (since I don't have either). It's the kind of game that's so much more enjoyable with others
Haha, Mario Kart for the PS3, that's a funny thought.

You know, I was actually looking into Harvest Moon, but I've never played any games in the series before. Is it like Farm Frenzy? Cause that game gives me headaches more often than not...

While many people may hate me for this, I'll pass on Zelda. It doesn't seem like a game I'll like.

Now, does downloading on the 3DS take a huge amount of time? I know downloading on the DSi took, like, forever, and that was just small DSiware titles. If only Nintendo had their own version of Media-GO; it's really so very useful for my PSP

Thanks again for helping me out!! The 3DS has so many games out that it's hard to choose some times
Are there any good rpgs for the 3DS? I like rpgs the most.

Well, that's why you buy a game when ever you can. There's tons of games I want but still don't have. There's no rule that says if you don't get them right away, you can't get them at all.

Most consumers say that it'll take around 20-30 hours to finish Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, if you don't bother to go and try to finish every little detail of the game, while Zero Escape should last, at least, another 25-30 hours without completing everything. However, of course, your time will vary based on a number of factors, such as your skill as a gamer, for example.

Kd Icarus: Uprising isn't an RPG. It's official genres are "third-person shooter" and "rail shooter". And yes, Kid Icarus: Uprising is crazy, but you won't regret it if you get it. Check out the videos in the Nintendo eShop for Kid Icarus: Uprising. You'll only be able to purchase Kid Icarus: Uprising at a retail store, as it also comes a special Nintendo 3DS system stand, as well as six random AR Cards from a possible set of 20.

Ah, you made a wise choice then. The Super Mario 3D Land bundle is a great way to start off your Nintendo 3DS collection.

Well, like I said, Mario Kart 7 allows you to play online with gamers from all over the world, so you'll always have someone to play with so long as you have a wireless internet connection, and it has 3DS Download Play so you can play with your other Nintendo 3DS friends locally who don't have a copy of the game. You'll have to spend a decent amount of time in the single player mode, as that's where you'll unlock levels and characters.

Although the Harvest Moon series and the Farm Frenzy series may share the idea of using a farm setting, the games are nothing alike. Harvest Moon should be right up your alley, as the main series always has been and always will be, an RPG.

The Ocarina of Time is a game that everyone should try at some point in their life, so look into getting a used copy then. It's an action-adventure title that also has some RPG elements, such as side quests. The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time is a game that can be played over and over again, and it's pretty common for consumers to get a few hundred hours worth of play time out of it. Did I mention that The Ocarina of Time is considered by many to be one of the best, if not the single greatest video game ever created?

How long it takes to download a game through the Nintendo eShop will depend on the game in question. A Virtual Console title, such as Kirby's Dream Land for the Game Boy, should be downloaded fully in a matter of just a couple of minutes. A bigger game, such as New Super Mario Bros. 2, could take anywhere from 15 minutes to over an hour, depending on your connection speed. My personal download time for New Super Mario Bros. 2 was about 23 minutes.

Of course it's hard, and it's only going to get harder to choose, with titles such as Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon just around the bend.
As for the matter of RPG titles, considering the Nintendo 3DS hasn't been on the market two years yet, there is still much work to be done. The best RPG you'll find right now is probably either Harvest Moon 3D: A New Beginning or the newly released Paper Mario: Sticker Star, while you'll be able to pick up Fire Emblem: Awakening early next year. Most of the other RPG's for the Nintendo 3DS are only available in Japan, such as Project X Zone. However, you can download the original 3DSWare RPG "The "Denpa Men: They Came By Wave" from the Nintendo eShop for a small price.

Also, if you'd like to try some Nintendo 3DS games for free, head over to the Nintendo eShop and enter the "Demo" section. You'll find downloadable demos for more than 20 Nintendo 3DS games, including Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and The "Denpa" Men: They Came By Wave. Demo versions of games are free to download, but each demo can only be played a number of times before it's uses are used up. Once it has been played the set number of times, you'll have to go out and purchase the full game if you want to play more.

Just to point out, but Luigi Mansion 2 and Animal Crossing 3D no longer exist as names. They are now being released as Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Both are targeted for release in the first half 0f 2013.

^ lol. Goodluck. I gave up after 2 weeks of constant searching. I am content with my digital copy.

Anyways. I also recomment Fire Emblem: Awakening. If you're into strategy games with war-base storyline. Monster Hunter Freedom is also a fun game i enjoyed with my psp. I'm glad it's now available for the 3ds.

I've only heard good things about Fire Emblem myself. I usually stick to my Mario platformers and Pokemon games, but everyone I know is just raving about Fire Emblem.
