In order to lower the amount of threads asking for recommendations, bbb and I have decided to start this general thread for people who are unsure about what games are worth buying, similar to the one in the General Wii forum.

Just some advice; When you post tell us what kind of games you're looking for, be it action, RPG, platformer or something for your 8-year old son. Also be sure to tell us what popular games of those genres you (or the person you're buying for) already own/enjoy, as it would make recommendations a lot easy.

I dont blame you for considering q, but atlus games tend to go on sale pretty often. Something else to consider is one of the etrian games (i recommend iv) since persona q is basically an etrian game with a persona skin. There are some differences ofc, but the similarities outnumber them.

Hey guys. I have $40.01 as funds on eShop, and I'm wondering which game I should buy.

Currently I'm leaning towards Pokemon X/Y. But then there's the fact that I can just get a physical copy of the game for cheap. I can also consider waiting to get $10 funds more later to buy Persona Q, a game I desperately want, being a die-hard Persona fan.

I can also consider getting any other game recommended to me. Otherwise I could wait for a sale =3

I know it isn't a 3DS game and that but honestly for £19, I cannot recommend this RPG highly enough. It is conditional turn-based battle system on a sort of grid, so there is a tactical element to it, lining up enemies in certain formations bring in to play a good amount of combos, and draws upon some influences of Chrono Trigger with parallel universes and time-travel. I paid twice that to import it because I couldn't find a retailer flogging it. It is a DS game so it is region-free.
Seconded. Radiant Historia is one of the best games on the DS, all around.

Not sure what's up with the high amount of praise for FE:A, but I don't think I'd recommend it. Though it might be because I've never liked tactical RPGs, I'm not sure if its a worth playing game for a first timer. Try playing its demo and let us know what you think~

Quick question,Is Ike or Marth in FEA?
Smash Made me want to play it and i was curious.
The game has pretty much every major FE character in the game as extra characters you can recruit, including multiple versions of Marth and Ike.

Technically they are through the DLC. But Ike is the main character for Path of Radiance(Gamecube) and Radiant Dawn(Wii). While Marth is the main character for Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light or Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, which is just a remake but for the DS.

I'm thinking about getting a cool new action game for my 3ds.
Does anyone know which one I should get?
Also, gsdfhf,I was thinking the same about that game too.
EDIT:Should I get FEA too? Robin from smash made me want to play the game,But it haven't played any FE games before,Do I need to know the story from previous games to understand the story?
Hm, action games... I thought Code of Princess was a pretty fun beatumup, and either of the Zeldas (OoT or ALBW) are great. Monster Hunter 3U is a lot of fun as well, but comes with more of a learning curve.

I really enjoyed Kid Icarus Uprising, the controls work fine for me. A lot of the complaints are that it doesn't function like a typical 3rd person shooter, since you're aiming is more rotation based than grid based. If you enjoy the classic mode structure of the new Smash game you'll really like KI, since Smash borrowed tons of elements from it. Also look at the eShop, there are tons of action games on it that are supposed to be really good.

Fire Emblem Awakening is a must buy, in my opinion. Great story, tons of replayablitiy, just an awesome game all around. The game's story is basically self contained, with some minor connections to the very first Fire Emblem. Pretty much all of those connections are well explained in the game and serve more as lore than anything you actually need to know to play. The game has tons and tons of extra content aimed at FE fans, but none of it really requires extra knowledge either. Its just fun stuff for those who've been with the series a long time.

Yeah, Fire Emblem Awakening is amazing, it has had a lot of replay value for me, too. FEA was my first Fire Emblem game and I grasped the story well, you don't really need to have a broad knowledge of the series to play FEA, which I think is why I liked it so much.

I am not much of an Action gamer, but I would recommend MH3U.
