Top ten best 3DS games

Postby Grovyle » 26 Dec 2011, 12:45

I think residemt evil mercenaries should be in this because 1. its better than nintendogs and cats 2. it has online, absent from many a game and 3. the graphics are pretty amazing. So it should start at number 10 and slowly climb up untill it finds its place!

Considering there's only about 60 or so 3DS games out at the moment, and with even fewer of them being that amazing, it can't have been that difficult to compile this list :P

Good list but starfox shouldn't have been number 4. Am I the only one who didn't like this game? :?: I got it and completed the game in less than 2 and a half hours and the gameplay wasn't even good, it was just doing the same thing over and over again. :? Took it back the next day. Other than that no surprises in the list.

Misleading title is misleading. Only 5 of those games are worth playing.

Street Fighter; greatest fighting game ever? Street Fighter; accessible for newcomers? ONM are experts at the old oxymorons aren't they?

So SM3DL above MK7. How is the MK7 single-player, and will online be updated to make it better? Should I get SM3DL or MK7. I enjoy both genres, but want something to last a little while, although I'm doubtful as to whether I'll play much online.

Ghost Recon Shadow Wars?

May not be the best using the 3d effect, but its an overlooked gem.

Currently, myself and my brother have got: SM3DL, MK7, PW: Resort and Nintendogs and we think...

they'll all great

Come 2012 and boy, will we have some top 10

If you are going out looking for 3DS Games in the after christmas sales try Dead or Alive. Its a lot more accessible than street fighter because it only has One Punch Button and One Kick Button. The roster is attractive. And I Think it is the hidden classic of 3DS. And if you dont like it you can easily trade it, but i really like it.
When I go out some people ask me-Hey what's with the name. Well My real surname is Newcomb. And its sounds like Nukem as in Duke Nukem the game character (never played it, im two young). So I have adopted it and put in frustrating capital letters.

The top four are the only ones I want/have. Pilotwings and Rayman 3D are also pretty fun games!

I found Ridge Racer and Street Fighter both average games. With SM3DLand being slightly above average, meaning I would put MK7 first as I don't like the Zelda series.

Postby colourblindyoshi » 27 Dec 2011, 10:48

so, the best game may allways be OOT 3D.

street fighter deserves to be there, maybe higher.

next year god knows. metal gear solid for the top anyone?

I got SM3DL for Christmas. It's pretty crap until world 5. then it gets kind of fun. nowhere near as good as galaxy. OOT 3D was really good but so was its source material! I want Mario Kart 7 bad! SSFIV is crap.

'Top ten 3DS games'
'Yet' at the end should have been added. Next year's games will be much better, and I imagine OoT 3D will be kicked off its 3DS perch sooner with the upcoming release of Kid Icarus: Uprising and Luigi's Mansion 2.

Sonic Generations and Cave Story 3D should be higher up the list.

Perhaps Skylanders should be on the list? Even after all the flaws it has with having to get figures and having slightly lacklustre worlds, it's still one of the only decent 3d platformers around.

Rayman 3D is just a lazy port of the dreamcast version of Rayman 2. Don't think we didn't notice Ubisoft! Give us Rayman Origins soon and all will be forgiven.

Meh, personally I reckon Tales of The Abyss and RE: Mercenaries should have been in there, instead of Ridge Racer and Cave Story. Other than that, the list is pretty solid.

Tales of the abyss should have been in there. And ridge racer out.

Also, Skyward Sword better than Ocarina? No chance...
