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.

weeveeship, a couple of recommendations from me would be:

Pokemon OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire - If you enjoyed X and Y, I'd wager you'll enjoy this remake of the GBA's Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. Game has a completely different map and story to XY, and promises new features and new MegaEvolutions as well. Comes out this November.

Bravely Default - Another great RPG out there, you won't go wrong with this one.

Fire Emblem Awakening - If you're looking for a game to sink some time into, this one is perfect. I have over 300 hours in it so far. Its a turn based tactical RPG with tons of customization options with tons of replayability. I think it's still the best game on the system.

Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D. If you've never played Ocarina of Time and enjoyed A Link Between Worlds, you should definitely give this game a shot.

Monster Hunter 3 - Fight giant monsters, use their body parts to forge equipment, and fight even bigger monsters. Game's a ton of fun, especially if you can get a couple of friends to play with you. Is grindy though, so this may not be your cup of tea.

Fall and Winter is coming, and I need something to do in my free time. So, I'll be playing more 3DS games. Generally, I like adventure games (including RPGs) and sports games, but I will consider games from other genres (except First Person Shooters - those make me dizzy). I also prefer games that take a long time to finish and/or games that have extra features after I beat the game, though I don't like games that require me to just do a bunch of repetitive actions (e.g. grinding). My collection so far:
  • Pokémon Y
  • Mario and Luigi: Dream team
  • Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds
One note, though, I also have a Wii and would prefer not to buy 3DS games that are very similar to what I already have for the Wii. My Wii games:
  • Super Smash
  • Super Mario Bros Wii
  • Super Mario Galaxy
  • Mario Kart
  • Wii Sports (the one with Wii Tennis)
e.g. Since I already have Super Smash for the Wii, I will be reluctant to buy Super Smash for the 3DS because the games are substantially similar.

Any recommendations for games I should get? I am looking to get maybe 1-2 more games for my 3DS.

Aurigae Thanks for that! I'll definitely get them if my debit card works on the US 3ds

Ah, I see.

Dilute: I believe Shadow Dragon & The Sacred Stones are on the 3DS eShop, they should be fairly cheap as they are part of the Virtual Console collection. The GBA game Fire Emblem is on the Wii U eShop.

Whelan It's probably my gamer intuition but I don't exactly like playing newer games before playing the old ones in a series.

Dilute: Fire Emblem Awakening is a good buy, definitely. FEA was my first Fire Emblem game, and it was pretty easy to get into the plot. It doesn't involve you getting all of the previous games to get the plot, which is good to have in a series imo.

Sounds lame. Awakening was my first. Didn't bother me really.

1001 spikes, denpa men 3, etrian odyssey iv, smt soul hackers are all great, too. all pretty inexpensive as well. and there's no continuity in awakening, so I'm not sure why you're adamant about waiting until you've played the other games. it's one easiest fe's outside of lunatic mode. easy to pick up and get into.
